    my favorite recipe from dorie is the Tiramisu Cake from the book "from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan" i made this cake for my sister wedding after everyone told me if i am sure i will be response to make the wedding cake, i was positive that this book will make the best cake ever, and i was write, every one was shocked that i made this cake and even ask for the recipe…

  • boardingace  on  October 28, 2014

    I hope this counts as an entry, because I haven't made any of her recipes, but I have heard of her cookbooks of course, so I was very excited to see this contest open up!!! And I had to google the world peace cookies – they sound delicious 🙂

  • genericgenre  on  October 28, 2014

    I have seen many of Dorie's recipes but haven't made or tasted any of them. Looking at the recipes in this book, Saint Pierre Poppy Seed Cake sounds great!

  • sgump  on  October 28, 2014

    Blueberry crumb cake (from *Baking: From My Home to Yours,* pp. 192-93): simple and lovely.

  • Eybhp  on  October 28, 2014

    Thumb print cookies.

  • hillsboroks  on  October 28, 2014

    I love her lemon cream tart recipe.

  • DKennedy  on  October 28, 2014

    Her apple cake in Around My French Table has become a staple in our home.

  • lovelily1001  on  October 28, 2014

    on the cover of "baking: from my home to yours" is a gorgeous chocolate cake "devil's food white-out". made that for my son's 18th birthday, and it came out just like the cover picture! amazing! and delcious too!

  • veronicafrance  on  October 29, 2014

    I've heard so much about Dori, but I've never yet made one of her recipes. I really enjoyed reading her interview — I live in France, and so much of what she says is spot-on with my experience.

  • ckbkaddict  on  October 29, 2014

    A recipe in Bon Appetit magazine for Dorie's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are amazing and every time I take them to something people rave about them and always ask for the recipe. I would love to win this book but guess I'm not alone! 😉

  • cecrofts  on  October 29, 2014

    I love her Roast Chicken For Les Paresseux (Lazy People) so much – the bread that cooks underneath the chicken is probably my favorite thing to eat ever!

  • jupflute  on  October 29, 2014

    I've made so many of her recipes with great success that it's hard to pick just one. Either her lemon cream tart which I've made multiple times to rave reviews (I could eat that filling by the spoonful) or her mango bread which is probably the first recipe of hers I made.

  • angelanorr  on  October 29, 2014

    this is the first I've heard of Dorie.

  • lavenderashgrove  on  October 29, 2014

    Custardy Apple Squares – yum!

  • kimtrev  on  October 29, 2014

    my favorite has to be the Cocoa-Nana bread.

  • enassar  on  October 29, 2014

    Wow, where do I start. Her "Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan" is by far my most used baking/pastry book. The recipe I bake the most out of it…well make that two recipes are the simple Bittersweet Brownies with espresso and the Great Grain Muffins

  • Lyndaherman  on  October 29, 2014

    The french Apple cake!

  • matag  on  October 29, 2014

    Nutella Buttons

  • JumpinJude  on  October 29, 2014

    I haven't met a recipe of hers I haven't liked (whether I made it or someone else did), but one of our faves is one of the simplest: Key Lime Pie Sorbet.

  • Taxlady  on  October 29, 2014

    I have heard about Dorie, but have not had a chance to make any of her recipes. I think any if the recipes in this book would be a great start.

  • lmalter  on  October 29, 2014

    I love her mushroom quiche (and crust)

  • robinorig  on  October 29, 2014

    I love her world peace cookies but also the sablés, cornmeal shortbreads, etc. I've been to one of her pop-up cookie stores and everything was delicious! I would love to try the lemon cream tart as it sounds incredible!

  • atesari  on  October 29, 2014

    she is always a reliable baker and I'm psyched to see this. Yes, nutella buttons are stupendous.

  • rstuart  on  October 29, 2014

    I honestly don't know where to start.. there are so many! I love the World Peace Cookies… but I think that the Dimply Plum cake might also be a favourite. It's simple and homey but delicious..

  • Julia  on  October 29, 2014

    Doris's recipes are consistent, reliable and delicious. I would love to see this new collection.

  • SLane  on  October 29, 2014

    Dorie's Potato Gratin is truly best-ever, and really easy.

  • IslandgirlOK  on  October 30, 2014

    The Whole Cherry Clafoutis from Around my French Table. I do however remove the pits, to make things a little easier (and not so gross) for my guests.

    I love the chocolate pound cake from her Paris Sweets book!

  • nphillips  on  November 2, 2014

    It's a toss up between the Lenox Almond Biscotti and My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies from "Baking from My Home to Yours." They've both become my standards and I don't bother making anyone else's.

  • chawkins  on  November 2, 2014

    I love both the blueberry-mascarpone roulade and Marie-Helene's apple cake equally.

  • centraljersey  on  November 25, 2014

    Guilty: I have printed out many of her recipes and right now they are buried in a pile of printed-out recipes. Which means I need to quit printing out recipes and get the cookbook!

    Her Carrot Cake!

  • katcook  on  November 25, 2014

    Though I continue to make Twenty-hour apples as Dorie wrote it in Desserts by Pierre Herme, I do appreciate her shorter version called long and slow from Around my French Table. That filling can be used in a variety of ways.
