Chocolate Scotcheroos

How To Make Quick And Easy Bar Cookies – Scotcheroos

I was first introduced to this deadly dessert by my sister-in-law Amy! This is one of those desserts that is so so so good…that I can now only make it when I have somewhere to take at least half of the pan! If I let the whole pan sit on our counter or in our fridge…the results would not be pretty. Between my husband and I, there would be…no…survivors.

Pecan Pie with chocolate mint

Top 3 Desserts Creole Delicacies Of Louisiana

Long time ago, people were very busy moving and mingling together that resulted to mixtures of cooking style. Especially in Louisiana where different dishes were created and it was called Creole foods. One of their very obvious evidence of infusion is their Creole delicacies. Anyone could not afford not to taste any of them, if they have been in Louisiana. In order for you to choose which of them you want to have first, here are some sweet delicacies from Louisiana you would like to have.

 

Chocolate Praline

Chocolate Praline

1. Praline. It is the number one Creole delicacy that you would like to have when you go to Louisiana. It is considered to be a part of the family of confections made from nuts and sugar syrup. You can taste its different flavors like chocolate, rum, pineapple and many more.

Its story of how it landed to Louisiana is already known by many. Way back then, those French settlers brought this recipe to their place. They call it praline since New Orleans chefs substituted almond with pecan during the 19th century. Pralines are usually made by mixing brown sugar, butter, and cream or buttermilk in a pot on medium-high heat. Stir it constantly, until most of the water has evaporated and wait till it reached a thick texture with a brown color. It is usually dropped by spoonfuls onto wax paper or a sheet of aluminum foil greased with butter, and left to cool

2. Pecan pie. It is the top 2 of our list which by definition it is a sweet pie made primarily of corn syrup and pecan nuts. It is popularly served at Pecan Pieholiday meals and is also considered a specialty of Southern U.S. cuisine. Most pecan pie recipes include salt and vanilla as flavorings. Chocolate and bourbon whiskey are other popular additions to the recipe. Pecan pie is often served with whipped cream.

Since this is a Creole delicacy, it is expected to be an influence by past settlers of Louisiana. As stated in a trusted source, the French invented pecan pie soon after settling in New Orleans, after being introduced to the nut by Native Americans. It is sometimes referred to as “New Orleans pecan pie,” adding an aura of French cuisine to a home-cooked comfort food.

3. Bananas Foster. Just by name itself, we can easily identify that it is a dessert made from bananas. It is prepared together with vanilla ice cream, with the sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. You will cook the bananas, sugar and butter and add alcohol to ignite it. However, before the Katrina hit clear rum was used instead. Then serve the bananas and sauce over the ice cream.

 

In recollection, it was Paul Blange who created Bananas Foster during 1951. Its name comes from the name of his friend Richard Foster the New Orleans Crime Commission chairman back then.

These are the top three desserts wanted by locals and foreigners who have visited Louisiana. These are available by many restaurants and shops in Louisiana.

Ansel’s flourless chocolate pecan cookies are addictive

 

 

In a preview to his upcoming cookbook, Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel releases the recipe for a remarkable (and remarkably easy to prepare) chocolate cookie. And it’s gluten-free. (Minneapolis Star Tribune/MCT)

Pastry chef Dominique Ansel, inventor of the croissant-meets-doughnut confection he christened the Cronut, is coming out with a cookbook in a few months.

To whet the media’s appetite, publisher Simon & Schuster is circulating a preview piece. The sneak peek contains two recipes, and, no, neither is for his most-talked-about creation.

I am not exactly crushed, particularly since the flier features a formula for a flourless chocolate cookie with pecans. Cronut, schmonut; one glance at photographer Thomas Schauer’s hard-core food-porn images of said cookie and I knew that I’d be first in line to buy the book upon its October release.

Ansel’s comment at the top of the recipe proved to be the real clincher. It reads, “I love making this recipe … because of its forgiving nature and utterly addictive results.”

Yeah: Chocolate. Easy. Fabulous. Three of the greatest motivators for composing a shopping list.

I don’t recall the last time that a rookie whirl through a recipe went so well, with so little effort. No electric mixer required, just a whisk. Sure, you’ll need a double-boiler, but my rudimentary version — a saucepan and a mixing bowl — more than sufficed. As for the technique, it’s the drop cookie at its most fundamental.

And wow, what results. I was bowled over by the cookie’s intensely chocolate-y essence. Its gooey texture comes as close to voluptuous as a cookie can get. Holding all of that melted chocolate together is the barest, faintest trace of a crispy exterior, and the way it collapses in your mouth is almost meringue-like.

Ansel, chef/owner of Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City and winner of the 2014 Outstanding Pastry Chef award from the James Beard Foundation, wisely suggests serving the cookies warm. “A glass of milk helps,” he writes. It certainly does.

But eating them in their fully cooled state isn’t exactly disappointing. Just don’t wait too long. It’s a fairly perishable cookie, lasting about two days when stored at room temperature. Trust me, they’ll go fast.

The dough can be refrigerated for up to three days, or frozen for up to a week. For the latter, defrost the dough in the refrigerator for a few hours before baking.

Initially, the dough resembles a thickish pancake batter, so much so that you’ll wonder, this is going to turn into cookies? Fear not. An overnight firming-up period in the refrigerator resolves the matter.

Ansel doesn’t suggest toasting the pecans, but I do. The recipe’s directions create oversized, fairly ungainly cookies. For more manageable cookies — and more of them
