I made this doubling the recipe and not in a cast iron rather an aluminum pan ha ha ha. Super easy and soooo delicious! Right amount of sugar (not too savory but not too sweet) and soooo tasty. Shame I need to wait until Thanksgiving to eat it. Going to make some extra for the day. Yay!

I made this last night after another recipe I tried was a fail. Does take a long time and I think my stove is tricky. It took longer for me because on the lowest setting it takes forever but if I turn it up a notch or two it began to bubble profusely. I just ended up keeping it a little higher and stirring more constantly. My mixture came out...

I have made this recipe twice. Once as a cake (blue velvet instead of red) and tonight as red velvet cupcakes. Each time the cake was moist and delicious. What I love most about this recipe is that it is simple and does not involve as many bowls as the average red velvet recipe. Simple to make and delicious! My new go to red velvet recipe!

The first time I tried to make brigadeiros using a Brazilian friends recipe, they did not turn out as perfect as I would like with the ball shape.

Made this with one of my good friends and these turned out amazing. I loved the dough and the hint of sauvignon blanc in it and the filling was equally as delicious! This was my first time making cannoli's and eating them and everyone that tried loved these. The wine glass we used was smaller so ours came out more mini but perfect for my friend"

I just made these today and these were AMAZING!!! My mom literally had to ask me if I made these or were they store bought lol.

I definitely loved the advice of the moistening the hands before molding them as it did help with the sticky dou"

As others have said this was super east to where I did not need my kitchen aid, just my pastry blender and a strong rubber spatula. Not too moist but not dry and full of buttery flavor. I ate two within a minute lol and I am on a diet so it will be a light dinner tonight. I will make these again and my kitchen still smells amazing! Thanks Ina!"
