Top 10 posts in 2012

I wasn’t originally going to do a Top 10 roundup on the blog, but I figured that it would be a fun way to see what recipes you, my awesome readers, deemed the most popular in 2012. Ready? Let’s get started!

10.  Baked buttermilk donuts with lemon glaze – This was my first attempt at making a baked donut with my new donut pan, and I am pleased to say that it was a success!


9.  Chocolate chip cookie dough pudding – Cookie dough in pudding form? Heck yeah!

8.  Brown derby cake – A sweet way to celebrate our little girl’s 2nd birthday – and a trip down memory lane.

7.  Pumpkin cheesecake cookies – This version of a popular grocery store shelf brand doesn’t contain anything you can’t pronounce.

6.  Chocolate chocolate chunk muffins  – As usual, Dorie Greenspan comes through. These chocolate chocolate chunk muffins will get your day off to a great start!

5.  Honey butter croissants from Hop’s – All it took was an email to Hop’s corporate headquarters, and this recipe was born!

4.  Brown butter sugar cookies – I can’t believe how long it took me to finally make browned butter. These cookies were out of this world!

3.  Vanilla bean cupcakes with vanilla buttercream – If you’re looking for a perfectly vanilla cupcake, look no further. This is it!
