Peanut Butter Butterscotch Chips

I can’t believe we’re down to the last few recipes in Baked Occasions! Most of them are cookie recipes since the Baked Boys included a “12 Days of Cookies” section for Christmas, and we need to catch up. This week we mixed up these Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies, which are just a straightforward peanut butter […]

The New Orleans

Mardi Gras is coming up this Tuesday, so our treat this week is in honour of New Orleans: a pralines and cream ice cream cake. You can see by my picture that I took this in a different direction, so let me first explain what this recipe is supposed to look like. The recipe as […]

Compost Cookies + Christina Tosi in Toronto

Compost Cookies

I’ve been obsessed with Christina Tosi and Momofuku Milk Bar for years now. I was trying to think of the first time I heard about Crack Pie, and I can’t pinpoint it exactly, but lucky for us, the internet provides evidence of this obsession in the form of a comment I left on Gwendolyn’s blog […]

Byn’s Farewell Tour of Treats: Day 3 – Chocolate Pecan Butterscotch Tart

June 13, 2012 Pies, Tarts & Pudding

The farewell treat tour was going along swimmingly until we hit Day 3. This certain co-worker who tries my patience came over to get a slice of this tart that morning. I had cut the slices VERY small (16 slices from a 9″ tart) and the following exchange took place:

Oatmeal Cream Cheese Butterscotch Bars

October 27, 2011 Bars & Squares

How do you organize the recipes you want to make? I would say I’m a bit of a hot mess in the area. I have a folder of favourites on my work computer (categories: Dinner, Treats, Breakfast, BBQ, Other Stuff), another system on my personal computer at home (categories: Treats, Pioneer Woman), a huge stack […]

Butterscotch Pecan Meringue Torte

October 17, 2011 Cakes, Cupcakes & Icing

Behold my birthday cake!  After baking for others all year (which I love, don’t get me wrong), this is the most wonderful time of the year when I make whatever I want. It’s an excuse to make something over-the-top, or with a guilty pleasure tucked inside, and this year, it was all about re-creating this most […]

Butterscotch Cream Pie 2.0

April 30, 2011 Pies, Tarts & Pudding

I didn’t make anything new for Easter dessert, but I thought it was worth a quick post to recap my little changes to this Butterscotch Cream Pie. Instead of the pastry crust I used on the first version, this time I used a graham cracker crust, which held up nicely, and didn’t get soggy like my first […]

Butterscotch Cream Pie

March 27, 2011 Pies, Tarts & Pudding

This is my re-creation of the pie of my dreams that I had in Halifax. It’s a pastry crust, filled with butterscotch pudding and topped with whipped cream, and it was a sweet second course at my blog-iversary party. I’m calling this version 1.0, because there are a few things I’m going to do differently next time.

East Coast Eats: Halifax

March 8, 2011 Bakeries & Restaurants

In 2008 I spent two weeks in Halifax, and it was amazing for so many reasons. My family is from a tiny town in Nova Scotia, but this was my first time in the city. I had so much fun, and my best work friend Paulette was with me the whole time. We worked hard […]
