Classic thumbprint cookies are always a hit! Start with a simple butter cookie recipe, then fill thumb depressions with gooey
chocolate ganache. To save time, substitute a small milk chocolate candy for the ganache and let the piping-hot cookie transform
it into a melty treat.
These delicate cookie sandwiches, made from egg whites and rich chocolate ganache, taste best the day they're baked. If you
do make them ahead, store them in an airtight container for no more than three days. But these tasty treats will probably
be long gone before then.
In our opinion, this decadent mix of chocolate, nuts, and gooey caramel needs no further introduction. But just in case you
need one more reason to try it, remember that a hint of crunchy coconut rounds out the flavor combination.
Serve these vanilla-flavored coffee treats with an after-dinner cup of espresso. The cream of tartar helps boost the egg whites
into a fluffy whipped concoction that bakes slowly, so start this dessert before dinner guests arrive.
When your chocoholic side goes on vacation, reach for one of these buttery, lemon-infused confections topped with flaky coconut.
Your taste buds will celebrate the easy-to-make dessert's resemblance to lemon meringue pie.
Although it looks fancy, a meringue is simply a mixture of egg whites and sugar. Flavored with almond extract and semisweet
chocolate, these "hard meringues" (meringues baked at a very low temperature) box up beautifully as hostess gifts and hit
the spot during a sweet-tooth craving.
