Joy the Baker: The Top Five

Peanut Butter Fudge Krispy Treats

Number Five: Peanut Butter Fudge Treats

For those moments when you decide to kill your noisy neighbors by gifting them an epic sugar rush in the form of these super charged bars.  Not a crime, right?

Black and White

Number Four: Red Velvet Black and White Cookies

Because red dye makes everything… red velvety!

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Number Three:  Pumpkin Pie Bars

Why add rolling out pie crust to the monstrous holiday to-do list?  Plus, butterscotch chips!?  Success!

Lemon Whoopie Pies

Number Two:  Lemon Whoopie Pies

Two cookies brought together with cream cheese frosting!?  Every meal, everyday?  Ok!

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Number One:  Easy Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Like a cinnamon roll loophole.  Also, is it weird that I always type cinnamon rolls as sinnamon rolls before correcting myself.  Yea… that happens.

  1. Hi Joy! Quick question about the pumpkin bars. I would LOVE to make these but my poor hubby is allergic to tree nuts. :( Should I sub something else in for those or will it be ok without them? Thanks so much. Love your blog!

  2. mmm…, how did you ever pick 5 favs? I think I must try them all with my kids, they love to bake/cook. By the way the brown sugar bacon waffles are divine!
    Instead of signing my kids up for expensive cooking class this summer, we are going to do our own at home. Do you have any suggestions for what to choose? The kids are 13, 11 & 9. I will search your site, you may have already covered this topic.

  3. Every body has at least one noisy neighbor, don’t they? The only thing that’s going to kill mine is beer. I’ve never seen him without one in his hand. I don’t think he eats – only drinks.

    But for those treats above, you can go ahead and kill me. I’ll die happy.


  4. Oh my the pumpkin pie bars sound delish right now. I know it is not fall, but I really want to make these. I also love the idea of the cinnamon roll muffins my son would flip over these.

  5. These recipes look mouthwatering! I cannot wait to make the Pumpkin Pie Bars! These recipes will get me through the day today… dreaming all day long at my desk! Thanks Joy!! :-)

  6. the red velvet black n white cookies are just genius. prolly my favorite but i have yet to make them. how did i miss the pumpkin pie bars? i thought i had scoured this blog front to back already…!

  7. Okay these all look amazing–which to try first??? Now more things to put on my to-do list–however, these might be bumped to the top above laundry and bills–they look so delish that they get priority! Thanks

  8. Sure this has been said of you before… but you remind me of Anna Pascale off Stranger Than Fiction. love love love. just wants to change the world with her sweet creations. thanks for brightening my world!

  9. Those lemon cookies look amazing. And as far as typos? I always type my friend’s name as Christ, and then I have to delete the ‘t’ at the end. I don’t tell him that, though, because I don’t want to give him a God complex. Haha!

  10. Your red velvet black and white cookies totally bring yin and yang to mind. All is well with the world ( and I don’t even believe in that stuff!)
