Brownies for the 4th.

I also made some butter cookies that were piped using pastry tubes. This was a first for me and not the best result. The taste, texture etc were fine but, they were very difficult to pipe. I am not sure if I should cut back on the flour or add another egg or just start pumping iron. If anyone has a TNT recipe for a piped wedding style cookie I would appreciate it.
Thanks B

I also started some whole wheat sourdough bread rising and added some peanut butter to the banana bread.

I have a few favorite ganache recipes. Here's the one I used for the cupcakes - it's from Scharffen Berger. I used Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate and added a touch of vanilla extract. I chilled it while making the cupcakes, and the consistency was perfect:

While en route to Maine last week I picked up FN magazine in the airport and Paula Deen had a recipe for blackberry pie, looked really good. I was at the Farmer's Market today and there were blackberries everywhere, I think that I was meant to make a pie, LOL. I didn't do the lattice, got lazy.

That is a very pretty pie!

Blackberry is the best, peach is second and the list goes on and on.

That's a beautiful pie Bakechef!

I just took some sub rolls out of the oven for meatball subs tonight.
