Oh sweets and treats — as healthy as we’d like to be, sweets still end up being the most popular recipes around here! (Last January and February, during our Light Eating theme, do you know what the most popular recipes were? Oreo cake, cake pops, and birthday cake.) Well, we do love our baked treats, and so here’s a look back at 30 favorites from 2009. My personal favorite is currently the recipe for brown butter rosemary walnut cookies, although the Chez Panisse gingersnaps are still dear to my heart, as is oatmeal cake with broiled topping. Toffee cakelets are up next! Read on to browse through these sweet recipes and more.
