Baker Bettie Valentine's Day 3 Comments

I know I’ve been a little MIA lately. The truth of the matter is that my husband and I are in the process of moving across country again! A few years ago we moved from Kansas to Philadelphia. And now we are making the move from Philadelphia to Chicago! And while we couldn’t be more excited, I also couldn’t be more stressed! But today I wanted to take a break and get into the lovey feels of Valentine’s Day! I have an awesome new recipe coming up for you tomorrow… ahem, homemade oreos! But today, here are a few of my …

Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Casseroles, Christmas, Eggs, Holidays 14 Comments

Overnight eggs benedict casserole is my solution to wanting to serve eggs benedict at brunch but not wanting to be standing over the stove poaching eggs. No poaching required here! Just a silky baked custard over cubed english muffins with canadian bacon and a rich hollandaise sauce to finish!  Eggs Benedict is possibly my favorite breakfast dish ever. I have a really difficult time getting anything else when I see it on a menu. I have an endless love for eggs. I pretty much think they are the perfect food. So simple, yet so decadent and very versatile. With Eggs …

Cranberry Sour Cream Crumb Cake

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Cakes, Christmas, Holidays, Sweets 8 Comments

Crumb cake is my favorite kind of cake because it has no frosting! This incredibly tender sour cream crumb cake is filled with tart cranberries and topped with a thick layer of brown sugar streusel. Serve it as a sweet breakfast, brunch or dessert! Crumb cake is my kind of cake! This frosting hater is pumped about a thick layer of streusel! I could eat that all day long. All. Day. Crumb cake is not something I had ever really had until I moved to the east coast. This stuff is dangerous. The most tender fluffy cake on bottom and a really …

Chewy Oatmeal Scotchies

Baker Bettie Cookies, Holidays 7 Comments

Thick and chewy Oatmeal Scotchies are one of my favorite kinds of cookie! This is my recipe for the best oatmeal scotchies and they turn out just slightly crispy on the outside and really chewy and gooey in the middle. Use dark brown sugar for the most chew! Are you getting sick of cookies yet? I know the internet is flooded with them these days. Cookie recipes coming out from everywhere! I didn’t plan this well. I should have given these to you earlier and kept some other holiday recipes for later but, you know, you live and you learn. …

Salted Caramel Corn

Baker Bettie Candy, Christmas, Holidays, Snacks 5 Comments

Salted caramel corn is the best way to eat caramel corn! The simplicity of adding extra salt takes caramel corn to a whole new level and it is so difficult to stop eating this stuff! This recipe makes a large batch and is perfect for sharing during the holidays!  Remember last week when I told you that Mr. BB and I were eating cleanly? When I gave you a recipe and sexy pics of donuts and told you it was torture because I wasn’t eating sugar that week. Well that was in preparation for all this holiday baking that has …

Salted Caramel Pecan Diamonds

Baker Bettie Bars, Christmas, Cookies, Fall, Holidays, Sweets, Thanksgiving 9 Comments

My take on a pecan diamond is a salted caramel pecan shortbread! These cookies would work very well for holiday sharing as it makes a large amount of diamonds and they are incredibly delicious and hard to stop eating! The buttery flavor and crumbly texture of the cookie base contrasts so well with the salted caramel and toasted pecan topping!  A few years ago at Christmas my sister’s mother-in-law gave my family a tin of Pecan Diamonds. Essentially they are shortbread on the bottom and a layer of caramel and pecans on top. That little tin sat out in the …

Creamy Herbed Mashed Potatoes

Baker Bettie Christmas, Holidays, Savory, Sides, Thanksgiving 2 Comments

This is my favorite way to make mashed potatoes. Creamy herbed mashed potatoes come together so quickly and are full of flavor! For Thanksgiving or Christmas Day, make these ahead of time and reheat with a little more cream and butter! I know, I know. I’m giving you a recipe for mashed potatoes? That seems kind of silly right? Well, I get a lot of comments and emails all the time from people asking me for my favorite recipe for this or that and it is almost always requests for the basics. My favorite pie crust recipe, or my favorite …

Chocolate Cream Pie

Baker Bettie Christmas, Cream Pies, Holidays, Pie, Thanksgiving 9 Comments

Get this chocolate cream pie recipe and tutorial! A flaky buttery crust, a rich chocolate pudding filling, and topped with light whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. This is one of my favorite pies from my childhood. Perfect for holidays and celebrations!  The closer we get to the holidays the more and more I get nostalgic about my home. I think about how lucky I am to have grown up in Kansas and I grow homesick of the familiar feeling that state will always bring me. It is difficult for me to express to people from the East Coast who have never experienced …
