Easy Baking Dessert Recipes

This app started with butter balls, those nutty rounds coated with powdered sugar that are also known as Russian tea cakes, Mexican wedding cookies, or Greek kourabiedes. When I was making a big batch, I found myself short on white flour and butter. I happened to have whole wheat and rye flours in my freezer, and I always keep extra-virgin olive oil on hand, so I decided to use them instead. I'll admit I wasn't sure how the cookies would come out. But when I tasted them, I went from apprehension to eye-rolling bliss. I hadn't imagined they could taste any better than the classic version, but they did--much better, in fact. The whole grains highlighted the toasty nuts, while the olive oil introduced a complex richness, making the cookies even more melt-in-your-mouth. My kids, always my most honest--and, therefore, harshest--critics, gave me their verdict by begging for more. Once the cookies had passed that high bar, I served them to chefs and food editors to get their professional opinions. They unanimously declared them the bestCane and beet sugar are unparalleled in their ability to add sweetness and moisture to baked goods. As much as possible, though, the recipes in this app use a variety of less-processed sugars, from fruits to honey or maple syrup to raw sugar or coconut palm sugar--ingredients that add bigger, deeper flavors while delivering vitamins and minerals.I love efficiency nearly as much as I love baking, so I cut out extra bowls and appliances wherever I can, streamline steps, and make cleanup easier. The "better" in Better Baking refers just as much to the foolproof techniques and shortcuts in this app as it does to the tastier treats themselves.This app includes:Muffins, Scones, Morning Pastries, and Quick BreadsMuffinsFlourless Blueberry MuffinsBanana Blueberry Flax MuffinsApple Harvest Zucchini Bread MuffinsStrawberry-Sour Cream Coffee Cake MuffinsCranberry-Quinoa Mini MuffinsLemony Rosemary-Corn Mini MuffinsGingered Plum-Corn MuffinsMediterranean Morning Glory MuffinsPineapple-Orange Sunshine MuffinsPurely Pumpkin MuffinsPb&b Mini MuffinsPear-Pecan Buckwheat Tea CakesScones, Biscuits, and Morning PastriesBlueberry Yogurt SconesOat Soda Bread Tea SconesCurrant Spelt Whipped Cream SconesRye Black Forest SconesBerry Scones with Dark ChocolateButternut Squash-Candied Ginger SconesJam Thumbprint BiscuitsPumpkin Cinnamon SpiralsSweet Potato Drop BiscuitsButtermilk Pecan Sticky BunsGlazed Baked Apple-Cider DoughnutsQuick BreadsSpiced Honey Rye BreadYogurt Lemon LoafFennel and Currant Corn BreadRoasted Butternut BarsBuckwheat-Cocoa Banana Bread BarsPumpkin Seed and Date Bread BarsGranolas, Seasoned Nuts, and CrackersLazy-Day GranolaApplesauce Granola with Walnuts, Sesame, and FlaxTriple-Coconut Ancient-Grain GranolaLuxe GranolaCoco PuffsMasala Mixed NutsHoneyed Pumpkin Seed PoppersQuick Candied NutsCrackersRustic Caraway CrackersCinnamon-Toast Graham CrackersGolden Raisin and Pecan ThinsSesame-Anise Olive Oil CrispsPoppy Seed Filo TrianglesThyme and Honey Marcona-Almond Biscotti SticksWalnut GrahamsGreen Tea LeavesPine Nut-Olive Oil CrackersCookiesDrop CookiesMocha Chip CookiesBanana-Oatmeal Chocolate ChippersHeavenly Hazelnut Chocolate Chip CookiesCowgirl CookiesChocolate Chunk Gingerbread CookiesChestnut KissesOrange Marmalade Tahini ThumbprintsRaisin Bran-Applesauce CookiesMexican Chocolate ButtonsSnowy Mint Chocolate MoundsPurely Peanut Butter SoftiesPistachio Lemon ChewsChinese Almond CookiesChewy Ginger SparklesBlueberry Muffin TopsPuffy Pumpkin CookiesChocolate Sunflower-Oat Lace CookiesPomegranate-Olive Oil Almond TuilesCranberry Chia BiscottiCocoa Almond-Date ChewsCoconut-Almond MacaroonsMelting Walnut SnowballsHazelnut-Fig MoonsCut-Out CookiesPeanut Coconut CrunchersWhole Wheat-Orange Shortbread HeartsFig and Walnut RugelachSpiced and Snappy Gingerbread MenSmoky Salted Almond and Raisin Bark
