Dominique Ansel’s innovative SoHo bakery, of cronut fame, has always been on my must-visit list, but with early morning lines that don’t ensure you’ll leave with pastry in-hand, I haven’t yet made the attempt. Thankfully, YumSugar has created a version the hottest new dessert trend-Ansel’s cookie shots. While ultimately easy, these initially proved tricky as, regardless of however much butter I […]

Starbucks’ pumpkin scones were my kryptonite in college, when it wasn’t unusual for me to take two or three and demolish them in two days’ time.
