I’m not going to pretend I invented this. A quick Google search for saltine toffee bark or some variation of that will turn up this super simple recipe. I think the only adjustment I made was the amount of butter I used (spoiler: it was more than most recipes you’ll find out there). Why the change? First it was by accident; doubling the initial amount. I learned from people that they actually liked it a little chewy. I, unfortunately, didn’t but I found a nice little compromise that allowed it to be toffee-like but not break your teeth.
Happy New Year! I seem to have completely neglected the month of December when some choice baking took place. I was however blessed with a new recipe book titled Mini Donuts: 100 Bite-Sized Donut Recipes to Sweeten Your “Hole” Day (yeah, it actually does say that on the cover). I firmly believe 2013 will be the Year of the Mini Donut! So I tried out a few donut recipes (baked, not fried) to usher in the New Year and I was not disappointed.
Oh the places you will go
With the all-purpose cookie dough.
Generally speaking, it is the base dough of a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. A little imagination, some creativity or just a trip to the bulk store can transform this singular iconic cookie into a myriad variations.
