Novice baker in need of some tasty recipes

Thanks for all your recipes (I'm definitelly going to try the walk-to-school Cookies - not sure I'm quite ready to graduate to Apple pie yet!) I had a go at some things today - good old cupcakes with different flavours of frosting, which I have to say were absolutely amazing. I also made oatmeal and raspberry squares and chocolate chip cookies, the cookies weren't that much of a success - don't know how I managed to make them so dry. Also, a whole tray of thumbprint cookies had to go in the bucket after I managed to mess them up as well. On the whole, for a beginner, I'm not doing too badly - I even got praise from my mum so that was quite good!

Hi ,

sorry to bother you all again. I've found a really easy recipe for snickerdoodles but I don't have any corn syrup. what is corn syrup and is there an alternative I could use? (bearing in mind I live in the UK - I only have golden syrup - a kind of tangy maple syrup like substance - on hand right now which I assume is completely the wrong path to go down)

Thanks for the recipe - I'm going to have a go at it tomorrow. Unfortunately in Scotland we don't have Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet morsels but I found a few good cookie recipes so I'm going to try those too. Thanks for your help

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to the baking scene. Although I'm Scottish I have a love of American baked goods and would love to recreate some of them for friends and family. If possible, could people recommend some simple, yet effective recipes that I could start out on? I'm thinking proper homemade brownies, cupcakes with REAL American frosting (not horrible British icing), granola bars, homemade cookies...anything that you would cook yourself that wouldn't completely overwhelm me.

I'd be really appreciative of any recipes that you'd share with me!

Regards

Em
