1. Wonderful Butter Cookies

When you want a buttery sweet cookie, with wonderfully crisp edges, try these Butter Cookies. They are very nice with a hot cup of tea or to serve alongside a bowl of sorbet or fruit salad. I think the best way to describe them is to say they are like a sugar cookie only not as sweet. You can form the batter into a log shape so you can slice and bake the cookies on demand, or you can chill the dough and roll it out to make cut-out cookies. Before baking you can sprinkle the cookies with sparkling sugar or chopped nuts.

Peanut Butter Balls are a perfect example of how something that tastes really good can also be easy to make. The best way to describe their flavor is to say they are like a homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. They have that same lovely coating of dark chocolate, with a smooth and creamy peanut butter filling that is almost fudge-like in texture.
5. Delicious Brownies Recipe

This is a Brownie with a dry cracked crust, a wonderfully moist texture, and a rich deep chocolate flavor. Brownies are often classified as "fudgy" or "cakey", yet I would describe this brownie as a cross between the two. They are wonderful plain or I often serve them for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
6. New York Cheesecake

New York Cheesecakes are creamy, and smooth, and rich, and dense, and absolutely delicious. This cheesecake has three layers, starting with a graham cracker crumb crust that is topped with a cream cheese filling, and then a layer of lightly sweetened sour cream. There are two popular cheesecakes in America today, the ones made with cream cheese (shown here) and the ones made with ricotta.
