Fudgy Brownies with White Chocolate Mint Mousse

Baker Bettie Bars, Brownies, Custards/Puddings/Mousses, Sweets 3 Comments

My ultimate fudgy brownies with white chocolate mint mousse are the definition of decadence. Fresh mint elevates the mint chocolate combo to a new level!  I’m baaaaaaack! Whew, what a whirled few weeks! Just to catch you up to speed in case you didn’t know, my husband and I just moved from Philadelphia back to the Midwest, to Chicago! This move was for multiple reasons, mostly for my husband’s job, but we have been wanting to be closer to family and Chicago is definitely a lot closer to Kansas than Philadelphia is! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I …

Ultra Soft Sugar Cookie Bars

Baker Bettie Bars, Cookies, Mini, Sweets 10 Comments

This is my definition of a perfect sugar cookie. Soft sugar cookie bars are incredibly fudgy, soft, and almost cookie dough like. Making sugar cookies in bar form keeps the edges soft and makes the perfect thick cookie to sink your teeth into.  I always get a craving for sugar cookies this time of year. But not just any sugar cookies. I want cookies that are indescribably soft and almost fudge-like. Cookies that border on tasting like cookie dough. I think I’ve actually only had those kinds of cookies a few times in my life. I’ve tried a lot of recipes …

Salted Caramel Pecan Diamonds

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 …

And when I say fudgy, I …

Cheesecake Cookie Dough Bars

Baker Bettie Bars, Brownies, Cheesecake, Sweets 6 Comments

Cheesecake cookie dough bars are exactly as wonderful as they sound. While the bars are in fact baked, the cookie dough layer stays perfectly fudgy while the cheesecake layer is velvety smooth. These little gems were a baking happy accident. I had no intentions whatsever of making what these turned out to be. In fact, I had every intention in the world of baking thick and fudgy brownies with a cheesecake layer in the middle with another layer of brownie swirl on top. I had plans. I was going to get up early on Saturday morning and have those babies …
