Just ’cause I’m curious….

What Dorie recipe do you make over and over?  You know, the one that you make even though it was originally chosen so long ago that you can’t even remember.  Do tell!

  1. I’ll answer first. I make the strawberry rhubarb crumble at least every couple of months. And the espresso chocolate chip shortbread is a favorite as well. I think I’ve made them at least a half dozen times.

  2. I make the basic biscuits (buttermilk variation) probably once a week. Before Dorie’s recipe, I had tried lots of different recipes and none of them were quite right. Now that I’ve found the Holy Grail of biscuits, I try to enjoy them often!

  3. I’m not much of a repeat dessert-er, but I have gone back and re-made the quadruple chocolate brownies and (my personal favorite) the cranberry cake we did last Thanksgiving–can’t remember the exact name but it is phenomenal. I seriously dream about that cake sometimes.

  4. Her cream scone recipe is my go-to, and I always have a log of World Peace cookies in my freezer for emergencies. For a while there, I’d make the coffee break muffins for any brunch-ish event with friends too.

  5. I’ve made Big Bill’s carrot cake and the tall and creamy cheesecake about a million times. I also make the bittersweet brownies, straw rhubarb crumble and french yogurt cake again and again

    • Tall and Creamy Cheesecake…I’ve made it at least 5 times and love it. I’ve also made World Peace Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies and her All-American All Delicious Apple Pie a few times since we did them as a group. :)

  6. I usually use Dorie’s pie crust and tart crust–I make variations on Gerard’s Mustard Tart (from AMFT) often. For desserts, my Dorie standbys are definitely cookies…I make World Peace Cookies and the other sables frequently. This is interesting, now I’m pondering all those cookbooks that I mostly keep for one special recipe (Lindsey Shere’s biscotti come to mind)

  7. This question is too hard! I’ve repeated all of the scones and muffins. For awhile I thought the chewy chunky blondies were my favorite but lately I seem to be gravitating to granola grabbers and chocolate chunkers. And I routinely make the Nutty, Chocalety, Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake. I always use Dorie’s tart dough recipe (I use ground nuts). And the caramel sauce and hot fudge sauce. Now I’m curious about how many things I’ve baked more than 3 times.

  8. Many of my favs have been mentioned. Aside from Dorie’s pie crusts which are my go-tos, I keep returning to Peanuttiest Blondies and Coffee-Break Muffins. Those blondies can do alot of damage to the hips, but they are so worth it! I bake the muffins as minis and take them whenever I visit friends.

  9. Swedish Visiting Cake is a no-fail crowd pleaser. I made it often but my 25yo daughter makes it all the time for her friends! Dorie’s tart dough is my go-to and the World Peace Cookies are the best chocolate thing ever.

  10. Her grandmother’s sugar cookie (something like that) recipe is my go to for when I decorate sugar cookies. But for special desserts I usually go to the crumb cake, oatmeal almost-candy bars, chipster brownies and blondies.

  11. I have made the cover cake several times and the Coco buttermilk cake several times also. By far the recipe I have made the most is the Swedish Visiting Cake. I bake for my classes and that recipe is fast, easy and my students all rave about it!

  12. 1) scones: honey nut and toasted almond

    2) the black and white cake (when I can get the whipped cream to cooperate)

    3) lemon cream tart.

    Those I make frequently.

    I *just* remade the Swedish visiting cake, too!

  13. The chewy chunky blondies are definitely my favorite recipe in the book and I have made them a million times. Grandma’s all occasion sugar cookies is the ONLY sugar cookie recipe I will use anymore for my sugar cookies, and it seems that I make sugar cookies almost every week, and the Brrrrownies are also one I have made at least a dozen times. Oh and I’ve repeated he Banana Bundt cake lots too!

  14. Buttermilk Biscuits
    Swedish Visiting Cake
    The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart
    The Perfect Party Cake
    Rick Katz’s Brownies For Julia (with nuts added)

    I’d make a few more over and over if I weren’t still baking along and trying new recipes! Like that Blueberry Plain Cake we just made!

    I love this book!

  15. For me, the Allspice Crumb Muffins and the Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones are the ones I’ve made most often. But there are a bunch of others I’ve made multiple times. And a lot I keep meaning to go back to, but there are always so many new things to try!

  16. I make Dorie’s blondes all the time for picnics and parties. They are so versatile and just delicious. I also fell in love with the cranberry shortbread cake and have made it numerous times, always to rave reviews. There are just so many good ones! Even reading the comments here has made me realize that I need to rebake a bunch of them. :)

  17. Pastry Cream, Pie Crust, Tart Dough, Apple Pie, Blueberry Pie, Dimply Plum Cake, Pecan Sticky Buns, French Brownies, Orange Berry Muffins, and those are just the recipes off the top of my head!
