TWD DC Valentine's Day Share a Heart

Nice simple cookies that can be dressed up or eaten plain. Like the LBD of cookies.

TWD BCM Sunday in Paris Chocolate Cake

These cakes are very beautiful. And they were pretty easy to make, although the "ganache" that got added to the batter was not really a ganache for me. More just chocolate milk. I liked them, but they were a little dry. I saw other reviews remarking on the crumbly texture. I'm definitely all about moisture and density in my chocolate desserts. But they will not go to waste.

TWD DC Rose-Hibiscus Shortbread Flans

For these, I used dried hibiscus flowers that I had lying around from another Dorie adventure. I used rose syrup instead of extract for the same reason. I was a little concerned about these being too flowery, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hibiscus actually has a tangy taste that balances well. The shortbread is perfect.
