It’s been a scone-making weekend. I’m off to a friend’s house with these maple oatmeal triangles. Link to the recipe in my profile! Note: I chilled and then folded the scone dough (see how-to in my instagram stories) instead of just shaping the dough in the pan as in the recipe. Either way tastes great. ❤️

Inspired by @hotbreadkitchen + their beautiful heart challah, I made some (pink!) braided heart bread. Technique on how to shape it is on @breadin5 today. ❤️

I have sprinkle scones on @handmadecharlotte today! (Tip: if you stick candles in them, they can pass as birthday cake.)

So, the Super Bowl is taking place here in Minneapolis. I’m not a football game watcher, or a celebrity stalker, so I’ll be home this weekend staying warm and watching Star Wars with my kids while the big game is on. However, if I was going to have a Super Bowl party, I would make cinnamon rolls for everyone and snack on them all day instead of chips and chili. These ‘truck stop cinnamon rolls’ are from a post I did for @breadin5 - you can find a link to the recipe (and their brilliant, no-knead Brioche dough) in my Instagram story. So, if you are superbowling it up, you could bring these along. Or, surprise all your little Jedi with them. youarelikecinnamon

Turnovers, with jam! Because it’s winter and all the berries are not in season, and there is always jam in my fridge. I have an Instagram story up on how to make them, and the link to the recipe in my profile.

Kolaches! This is a recipe from @testkitchen ‘s Bread Illustrated book that came out a few years ago. I’ve had the recipe up on my site for a long time, but realized I haven’t made them in quite awhile, so here they are again! I’ve got a story up about them, and the link to the recipe is in my profile.

I have three favorite brownie recipes: Ina Garten’s outrageous brownies, the famous Baked brownies, and one from America’s Test Kitchen. I wanted a recipe that combined the best elements of each of them. That meant good chocolate flavor, the perfect balance between cakey and fudgy, and a slightly chewy texture (a nod to the boxed brownies of my youth) were all on my list. After six months of testing and tweaking this recipe, I finally baked a perfect pan of brownies. I know brownies are subjective. Everyone has their own way of loving them, and you may not agree with me on texture here. I understand, we’re all unique individuals. But every time I eat these, I nod my head with a smile, confident that my search for perfection is over. The recipe for these brownies is in my cookbook, but you can also find the link for it in my profile and in my Instagram stories! vanillabeanbakingbook

I finally have a new recipe on my site: Coconut almond chocolate layer cake. I know shredded coconut is a love-hate ingredient for many people; I happen to love it. The flavors in this cake are inspired by a memory - Colleen Wolner at the @blueheroncoffeehouse used to make scones with these three flavors, and they were so dang good. You can find the recipe on my site (link in profile) and I have an Instagram story showing how I make it.

Chocolate bread! A recipe I’ve been making for years and years. The famous version of this bread is in Nigella Lawson’s How to Be a Domestic Goddess. I’ve tinkered with the recipe over the years, adding more chocolate, hot coffee, and some salt for complexity. You can check out my Instagram stories to see how I make it, and the recipe link is in my profile. vanillabeanbakingbook

I’ve got another baking story up for you - showing the folding technique for my scone recipe. This is another recipe that went from blog to book, and is a family favorite (my mom often calls up and ‘orders’ them from m me when she is having friends over for breakfast). Folding the scone dough is a little extra work, but I think it’s worth it. Recipe link is in my profile. vanillabeanbakingbook

Coffee Blondies! A recipe I’ve been making forever, and one from my blog that made it into my cookbook. I have an Instagram story up so you can watch me make them (I’ve been highly inspired by @zoebakes and her gorgeous stories, and playing around with some new apps thanks to @local_milk ‘s helpful newsletter tips) - it is saved in the highlights, along with a story on my pan-banging cookies, too.

These photos aren’t *exactly* your favorite 9 of the year- almost every ‘most liked’ photo was of chocolate chip cookies, so I thought I’d mix things up a bit, ha. But, thank you again for all your pan-banging love! Happy New Year to each one of you. I hope your 2018 is filled with joy and hope, peace and love.

Just spent a lovely 40 hours in NYC, making my pan-banging chocolate chip cookies in partnership with @thefeedfeed and @bobsredmill at The FeedFeed Cookie Swap. I met so many great people and ate too many cookies, naturally. and feedfeed
