Rebecca's journey into the food world was a little different than that of her coworkers. She didn't grow up in her grandmother's kitchen and there was no secret spaghetti sauce recipe. Her mother, who owned a home daycare center, needed to prepare large quantities of kid-friendly food as quickly as possible.

Another easy to make recipe that looks and tastes sensational. Makes a kazillion so great for a cookie exchange.
These are so pretty and delicious! I had to add a little more flour to the cherry dough...probably because I hadn't drained them as much as they needed. I added just enough flour to make the dough the same consistency as the chocolate part.
Though they look like you spent a lot of time on these cookies, I didn't find them hard to make at all! If I were to change anything, I did add a few more cherries and with that a little more flour to absorb the extra liquid ( I love cherries) . But these are yummy and got rave reviews!!
These cookies where awsome! My family doesn't like pistachio's, so instead I used Sliced Almonds with a 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. Also we used dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. This gave it a more rich, deep, flavor. I will definatly be making these again!
I found the recipe easy too make. The dough sliced well after refrigeration for 1 hr. I used parchment paper so they did not stick to the pan. They look good and taste good too.
A little time consuming, but very easy and most attractive. Delicious! Recipe instructions say to cut slices and then cut each in thirds. Much easier to slice chilled dough lengthwise into three bars, and then cut slices. This makes it easier to freeze a portion for future baking.

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
