This is truly the Ultimate Easy Creamy No Fail Chocolate Fudge. I took Mom’s classic fudge recipe and modernized it – no more standing at the stove putting in a workout just to stir it. Just a few minutes is all it takes to make this seriously delicious, super creamy, no fail fudge!
Growing up there pretty much wasn’t anything my Mom couldn’t bake. She wasn’t a professionally trained chef but she could produce meals that were flawless and truly delicious. Now any chef, albeit home or professionally trained has their specialty area. Some are rock stars at making steaks, others crush it in the pie world. Mom, yeah she owned the fudge realm. Mom made all types though her most requested was plain chocolate and toasted walnut. Now I’ll be honest, I was never a huge fan of fudge. If given the choice between fudge and a cookie, the cookies won out every single time. For me it was just too rich. However my Dad… oh my darling sweet father was a Fudge Fanatic! No people you don’t understand! My Mom would have to hide the fudge from him, even the ones she had orders for because that man loved it THAT MUCH!
I can remember her hiding containers of fudge in my baby doll stroller, underneath the blankets and then it got so bad that she start stashing containers of it in my Barbie Doll case, underneath my clothes in my closet waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the corner and in pretty much any thing that could act as a hiding spot in my room. Well Dad got wise to this and well…let me tell you a little story about fudge and my Dad.
Step up your pie game with cookie dough pie crusts! Take your best cookie dough and transform it into a killer pie! 2 desserts in one!
Let’s face it, pie crusts rock but they can be scary to the first time pie baker. It’s not that they are really hard to make as the ingredients are pretty basic – flour, butter, shortening, ice water (and maybe some sugar) but that’s it. Where the issue I think lies for some people is that they either overwork the dough causing it to be tough OR rolling it out. It takes practice but definitely give it a try. My Basic Sweet Flaky Pie Dough is no fail and super easy!
However today, with the holidays being chaotic and personally my house being in utter disarray from all of the construction, finding counter space to roll out a crust can be challenging. So today on Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer I’m giving you a “cheaters” way to get a great crust with no rolling required. Simply put, use cookie dough as a pie crust!
Yep, seriously cookie dough! Plus think of it this way, if you use cookie dough AND you turn it into a pie you’re literally taking 2 great desserts and turning them into 1! SWEET! Now one thing to note, this is only for pies that are filled AFTER they are baked; i.e., Blind Baked shells
Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Bacon Cheeseburger Potato Skins and the Buttery Shortbread Fruit Spread Glazed Bars!
Hey TKW Family! So you may have noticed these past 2 days have been utter hell with trying to access my website and recipes. Sometimes it would work, other times it would not. That’s been fixed (if you still get the error, clear your browser history and cache to remediate). I’m in the process of migrating everything AND also putting in a whole new design, as well as email program.
If you send me an email and I do not respond within 24 hours, send me a message on Facebook or Instagram. My new email server will take upwards of 36 hours to finish propagation so please bear with me. This has been an absolute nightmare for me to get this fixed. Once it’s all said and done I will then disclose the details of the utter hell I went through and name companies and legal actions I’m taking.
So for the next say week just be patient with me as we’re going through major growing pains (in a positive direction). I have LOTS to tell you and share with you 🙂

Be the star of your Cookie Exchange with these buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crisp short bread bars glazed with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread and Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread plus white chocolate drizzle! Seriously one of the best cookies this holiday season!
Oh hi there! Sorry, you caught me with my mouth full *blush*. I can’t help it. These cookies or are they bars? Hmmm… they are a cookie texture but shaped like a bar. Cookar? Barookie? If you ask me I’d call them “FanFriggenTasticalAwesomegasmic-Get-In-My-Belly Treat”! But honestly it doesn’t matter what you call them. What matters is that you MAKE THESE! OMG people! These are seriously so good. And such a simple recipe with just a few basic ingredients. The star for me is the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread as well as the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread. It’s so amazing I can’t even begin to tell you!
Now I know what some of you may be thinking… “Jalapeno??? Oh that has to be hot!” No it’s not. It’s balanced out so beautifully by the honey and strawberries. Yes it has some heat but it’s so good and on this cookie with the butter and white chocolate! Oh dear sweet baby Jesus people! But if you’re not adventurous then definitely get the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread. And FYI… buy a few jars because you’re going to fall in love! It’s just like how my Mom made hers!

Ah the holidays are here – the hustle, the bustle, Christmas movies, shiny wrapping paper, caroling and getting together with loved ones. And if you’re a foodie like me there’s one more thing to mention about the holidays… THE FOOD! Let’s face it people. When the holidays are here, we want foods that impress, wow and taste absolutely incredible. In my family and circle of friends we don’t gather around the tv or even the fireplace. Nope, it’s all about where the food is served. To me the kitchen is the heart of the home. So why not make foods that show folks you love them, that they are special to you. As Mama always said “Put your best dish forward Lori!”
And that’s exactly what I’m doing today. This Creamy Baked Brie with Cranberry Relish & Toasted Pecans is truly incredible. It’s creamy, cheesy, tart, citrusy and crunchy all on a single bite on a delicious Keebler® Toasteds® Cracker; Butter Crisp flavor to be exact. I heart those – like it’s nothing for me to polish off a sleeve of those for dinner and yes, JUST those for dinner!
Impress your guests with this easy and delicious dish this holiday season!
