The top six favorite reader recipes from The Well Floured Kitchen in 2016!
Another year has gone by, and I want to take this chance to say a big thank you to all my readers! I enjoy reading each and every email or comment I receive, and I’m grateful for each and every visitor to the blog. I have such fun sharing my love of baking with you all!
At this time I also love to look back and see which recipes from the blog were most popular during the year. Sometimes they are the ones I thought would do well, and sometimes I’m surprised by what everyone likes. I’m keeping the list short and sweet (figuratively and literally), with just the top six recipes.
In backwards order, to build your suspense 😉
6. Oatmeal Cookie Dough Ice Cream
I know it’s January, and we are awaiting a foot of snow to drop here tomorrow, but is there ever a bad time to think about ice cream? Instead of hot cocoa, I’m thinking of starting a new tradition of eating ice cream in front of the fire during a snowstorm. I don’t think it will be too hard to convince my family!
5. Raspberry Mascarpone Tart with Chocolate Cookie Crust
I was in love with this tart! Dark chocolate cookie crust, creamy mascarpone filling, and beautiful fresh raspberries on top. Plus, it’s a rectangle, which automatically gets points for fun. (But don’t worry it can be made in a regular tart pan.) Valentine’s Day is creeping up again, and I think this dessert would win over any heart 😉
4. Mini Greek Yogurt Berry Muffins
If you are planning to make over your lunchbox this January, I have the recipe for you! Mini muffins made with honey, Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour. Beautiful berries will brighten any cold winter day.
3. Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping
Make ahead coffee cake is perfect for weekend entertaining. Topped with chocolate chips and a buttery streusel, it is one of my favorites.
2. Chocolate Chip Cookie Tarts with Buttercream Frosting
This recipe really took off on Pinterest, and has been pinned 30,000 times! Helping to solidify something I’ve always known, that the chocolate chip cookie, in any variation, really is the king of sweets. I wholeheartedly agree, and these guys were super fun to make and even more fun to eat 🙂
- Peanut Butter Energy Balls
My family loves these little bites! I’ve been making versions of easy energy balls for so many years. Full of everything healthy you can think of; natural peanut butter, coconut oil, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, honey, cocoa powder… the list never ends. I am making myself hungry just thinking of them, it’s time to go whip up a batch!
So there it is folks, thanks for following along with my ramblings and recipes. Here’s to another amazing year of baking!
