I kind of dreaded this, since it involves precise temperatures and cooking sugar - it's the closest thing to mad scientist-levels of cooking I can do. After a disatrous first try and the resulting therapy, I came to the delightful and slightly easier result you can behold and attempt to replicate. Careful now, this is only for the brave

This is certainly one of the most easy, unmissable treat you can bake, and there's hardly anyone that can say with a straight face they don't like it. Partly because those who don't like it are allergic to peanuts, which makes it hard to keep said face straight when having a reaction. Anyways, crunchy, sweet and savory goodness here.

This one is a combination of goodness: sweets and cakes. Every sane doctor around would probably prohibit you from ever taking a bite off it - a delicious bite one that's soft but still offering a bit of resistance to your teeth... You get the idea, this is the kind of stuff that's so bad it's good.

It's not easy being addicted to sugar. I won't tell you about the long nights spent running down the streets, chased by the police simply because I happen to be carrying a quick fix of confectionery sugar. I won't tell you how my family regards me, the guy who eats ice cream for breakfast. It's not easy, but it's delicious.
I used to bake these with peanut butter bought in stores - not bad, fat and sugar full peanut butter, but not homemade either. This time, I had a jar made a few weeks before. I had made a slightly rough peanut butter, far from creamy and smooth, and until these cookies I was doubtful. Nevermore. It was great.
You're picky. You're the kind of guy who thinks "meh, her elbows are too pointy" or you're the kind of girl who says "his ears are a bit too purple". And you're one of those who look at the label on the peanut butter jar and goes insane. "I don't need all that oil!" "Tch, sugar? Why not poison?". You are picky, and unwell. I got you covered.
That's probably one of my favourites and it's a shame it doesn't count as one of your five a day. These should be moist enough, pack a punch of flavor and still have a bit to them with the candied fruits in. Really, what's not to love ? This recipe also works for individual cakes (so you won't even need to share).

I don't know how to sell these. They take a while to prepare, almond powder isn't the cheapest thing and you'll have enough dishes to wash for the next twenty years once you're done. But they're one of the most awesome little treat you could bake. The outer shell is slightly crunchy, the inner filling is tender and sweet... Like a gazelle, you know
This one as been in my family since 1987. I know that since it's from a September 1987 calendar page my mother kept. Funny thing is, I was born on September 1987. Is that the reason why this cake is so delicious? Modern science points to hell yes.
