We’ve all been there before: You see a photo of a recipe that looks so good, and you say to yourself, “I want to make that!” Cut to six months later, and you’ve lost track of the recipe and still have no idea what that perfect-seeming pasta tastes like. That’s where saving the recipes you actually want to cook comes in handy. And The Kitchn readers made their favorites known throughout 2023 by doing just that.
In fact, the 17 most-saved recipes of the year racked up thousands of saves altogether. You’ll find appetizers like hot crab dip and classic desserts like snowball cookies on this list. Whether you need a starter, a main, or something sweet to finish your meal, there’s a reader-favorite recipe for you here.
