Oatmeal Creme Pies

[Photographs: Sarah Jane Sanders] Note: These cookies require very little bake time. In my oven, 8 minutes is enough to cook them through and results in soft and pliable cookies, just like the real deal. 10 minutes, however, results in... More

Homemade Conversation Hearts

Sprite gives the candies a faint acidity that helps them taste like the real thing, and to that same end I've made suggestions for how to flavor each color to match the classic flavor line up. But don't hesitate to experiment! No doubt you'll think of all sorts of fun, alternative flavor pairings limited only by the extracts or freeze dried fruits you can get your hands on. More

Homemade Jell-O Style Chocolate Pudding

Serious Eats Bravetart 19 comments

The flavor of this pudding changes dramatically depending on the ingredients used. Skim milk makes a pudding with the lighter taste and texture of the "low-fat" puddings where as whole milk gives the full flavor of the original. High end fancy cocoa powders like Valhrona will result in a really dynamic, flavorful chocolate pudding, whereas grocery store staples like Hershey's will have a simpler flavor more in line with the taste of the pudding you remember.

Nilla Knockoffs

My recipe calls for just a bit of honey, not for its taste, but for its browning properties. Honey lends baked goods a deeper golden color, which is really helpful for giving these cookies the hue that their official counterparts gain from dye. More

Homemade Animal Crackers

Serious Eats Bravetart 6 comments

These taste just like the animal crackers you buy in a vending machine, not the sort that come in an adorable cardboard boxcar. Those are cookies. These? These are decidedly crackers: not too sweet, hyper crisp, and begging for a glass of milk. More

I absolutely cannot resist normal sweets kicked into Holiday Mode. You can make the candy cane version or the white chocolate version, or you can do the right thing. You can make white chocolate covered candy cane Faureoxs. More

Homemade McDonald's-Style Eggnog Shake

Serious Eats Bravetart 2 comments

Feel free to mix in a shot or two of your favorite holiday spirit along with the whipped cream at the end. Add it earlier and you'll prevent the shake from thickening in the ice cream maker. More

Brown Butter and Sage Sweet Potato Casserole

I can not possibly put down enough words of praise of this dish. I won't even try. Instead, I will say this: it is the best thing I have ever made. (And I have made a whole lot of stuff!) More

Homemade Fig Newtons

Serious Eats Bravetart 10 comments

Many homemade Fig Newton recipes include orange juice with the filling, but if you try a Newton, you'll find the orange flavor in with the cake. To get that same flavor, my Newton dough has a bit of orange zest and a splash of juice too. More

Homemade Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies

Serious Eats Bravetart Post a comment

You can use any chocolate you like for the "fudge" but a sweeter, less dark chocolate tastes most authentic. More

Homemade 3 Musketeers

Serious Eats Bravetart 2 comments

Admittedly, this version of the 3 Musketeers isn't quite as fluffy as the original, but it does have the mild chocolate flavor your remember. Use milk chocolate for a classic 3 Musketeers bar, or dark chocolate for a "Midnight" edition. More

Crispy Cereal Marshmallows

Serious Eats Bravetart 7 comments

The secret to crispy marshmallows is homemade corn syrup, a less stable version of what you buy at the store. Sounds like a bad thing, but it's not. You see, it's that very instability we need. During the candy making process, this syrup begins to crystallize due to its instability. This starts a chain reaction that ultimately results in "defective," crunchy marshmallows. Terrible for s'mores and Rice Krispie treats, but a thing of beauty for cereal. More

Homemade Crunchy Nutella

Serious Eats Bravetart 7 comments

Making the hazelnuts into a brittle means every bite has a subtle crunch, but even after grinding in a food processor, lots of big, chunky hazelnut bites will remain. Don't hesitate to substitute corn syrup for honey if that's what you have on hand, or do so for a vegan variation. And as long as we're talking substitutions, you can use toasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil (or another oil of your choice) to make a nut-free version, should you suffer from a nut allergy.
