TWD BCM Plain and simple almond cake



I have a fascination with eggs. They can do so much! They're like magic! This recipe shows them off. This is so good on its own, but would be great with fruit or cream. I kept thinking about an orange glaze to top.

TWD DC Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies



These were pretty good snacks. I found that they did not hold up very well, so would be best for eating day of.

TWD BCM Pistachio and Berry Gratins



I love pistachios. Every time I eat a baked good or ice cream with pistachio I always wonder why I don't use them more often. These were so balanced and perfect. I used a mix of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

TWD DC Chocolate-haystack cookies



I've been eating these for breakfast. I think that says it all.

TWD DC Lemon sugar cookies



These were very good and very easy. My husband said he would have liked more lemon flavor, but I thought they were just fine. Maybe a glaze for a little more lemon oomph?

TWD BCM Black-and-white marbled madeleines



Dorie really does give great tips. My madeleines always turn out great. I made my chocolate batter a little thicker by accident and was nervous, but they turned out very well.
