Cakespy: Mimosa Brownies

Did you know that August is National Brownies at Brunch Month? Don't waste time asking follow-up questions like why this month-long holiday exists. Instead, bake up a batch of brunch-friendly Mimosa Brownies. More

Cakespy: Magic Cookie Bar Pie

Magic Cookie Bars are, as their name might imply, no ordinary treat. Starting with layer upon layer of unrelentingly rich layers of buttery graham cracker crumbs, toasted coconut, chocolate and butterscotch chips, and nuts, they get even better from a rich smothering in sweetened condensed milk.

Black Forest Chocolate Cookies are deeply chocolatey, and studded with white chocolate chips and those sharp dried cherries. You don't want to overbake them--they're at their best when slightly gooey, straight out of the oven. More
