Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie ::: only 5 ingredients!

Mr. E declared that this pie as on his "top 10 dessert list!" Now, to be fair...over the years, Mr. E's Top 10 list is about 25, but he doesn't say that about EVERY dessert. And whenever he says it, I know it's high praise. He eats A LOT of desserts. (Poor guy.)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie ::: only 5 ingredients!

I made this for Pi Day (3-14). We had Shepherd's Pie for dinner and ice cream pie for dessert. Jack was home for spring break, and I couldn't let a major holiday like Pi Day go uncelebrated.

The pie is simple to make with literally 5 ingredients...and you have to make it several hours ahead of serving, so it's perfect when you have company for dinner.

Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm not going to lie. The day I baked these cookies, I ate nine of them. NINE. They were ostensibly for Jack when he got home for Spring Break. I guess they were a little for me, too? Two for testing while they were still warm, two while I took the photos, two when I piled them into the cookie jar, two after dinner...and one around midnight when Jack finally arrived home. OK, so maybe that 9th one was technically eaten the next day.

In other words, these are some pretty tasty cookies.

Here's a little blast from the past. This recipe is sitting way, way, way back, buried in the Bake at 350 archives. It needed to be revived.

If you're looking for something festive to make for St. Patrick's Day that won't have you toiling in the kitchen or breaking out the piping bags, this is it. The dough comes together quickly...you don't even need a mixer.

Irish soda bread is a little biscuit-y in texture. The bread is just a bit sweet and studded with raisins, both dark and golden, and caraway seeds. The seeds make this bread, don't skip them.


Star players: buttermilk, raisins, caraway seeds. [Note: I'm not usually a fan of raisins in baking...I love them here.]

St. Patrick's Day Shamrocks and Horseshoes

St. Patrick's Day Shamrocks and Horseshoes

St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us! I like that it's not super close to Easter this year...more time for more cookies.

The luck of the Irish was not with me in the decorating department. I'll start by saying that these are not my most favorite St. Patrick's Day cookies. These are.

I tried LilaLoa's method of using one consistency of icing for the outlining and filling. Let's just say that I need a bit more practice getting that consistency perfected.

I do like the shamrocks leaves split down the middle. I'll show you how I did that. There was supposed to be a large horseshoe with a bow that was SO CUTE in my head and SO AWFUL in actuality. Just keeping things real here...not every cookie is a winner. (The good news is, they still taste fantastic!)
