Dorie Pies + me = Deep infatuation (despite the singular failure of the Twofer Pie)
Dorie Cakes + me = We will be lifelong friends
Dorie Cookies + me = I dream of the Malted Whopper Drops
Dorie Ice Cream + me = BFF! Love ya like a sis!
Dorie Brownies + me = Can you marry a brownie? No? Guess we will just have to cohabitate in bliss for eternity.
Dorie Muffins + me = Hmmm…friendly co-workers at best at this point. This is the fourth muffin recipe I have tried from BFMHTY and, while none have been total disasters, none have really knocked it out of the park either. In fact, my favorite Dorie muffins were when I turned the blueberry crumb cake into muffins.
These were OK. My streusel sort of melted into the muffin and around the pan. Whatever we did with the blueberry crumb cake muffins worked better. And, frankly, this is just personal taste, but these were too buttery for me. I am not a person who butters bread, pancakes, popcorn or much of anything…so the overwhelming buttery flavor of the topping was a little off putting. I am happy to report that Will loved them. I think he ate almost the entire batch over the course of the week. You can’t argue with that.
Next week: sweet potato biscuits. I only became friends with sweet potatoes a couple of years ago but now we are tight. The full recipe for this week is at Grandma’s Kitchen Table by Kayte. It is a great site – check it out! See how she manages to keep up with 47 different cooking groups and be amazed.
Gratuitous family shot. My spouse, lifelong Cowboys fan, took Will to see them when they came to town to play the Chiefs on Sunday (his first NFL game). It was ridiculously, horribly, unconscionably, unseasonably cold. Better them than me.
