Only the Best Baking Powder Recipes

  • Almond Biscotti
    After many years of experimentation, I think these are the best biscotti I've ever made. They are nice and dry and crunchy the way real biscotti should be - they are not cookie-like like many you buy in the store these days. They are perfect for dipping, they have a long shelf-life, they are delicious and flavorful. My toddler LOVES them and even asks for them before bed with a cup of milk for dipping. Another great recipe from Alice Medrich.

  • Anise-Almond Biscotti

    \"Biscotti have become very popular recently, but my mother-in-law, Helen, has been baking them for years,\" says Janet Mercuri of North Royalton Ohio. \"Now that I've started using her recipe, friends tell me that my biscotti taste just like their grandmothers' —and I'm not even Italian.\"

    \r\n

    These have a subtle anise flavor and would be nice with a caffè latte.

  • Coconut Layer Cake

    \"My fiancé and I just love the coconut cake at the Shubox Cafe in nearby Cedar Grove,\" Tammy L. Drukker of North Caldwell, New Jersey. \"The cake is tender and moist, and the cream cheese frosting is tangy and rich. I have yet to find a comparable recipe, so I hope the restaurant will share theirs.\"

    \r\n\r\n

    At Shubox Cafe, this dessert is known as Awesome Coconut Cake, aptly named by one of the cafe's best customers. To make this recipe, you'll need to buy one 15-ounce can of sweetened cream of coconut. Some of it is used in the cake; be sure to save the rest for the Cream Cheese Frosting.\n

    My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)
