Update: Pie tasted amazing anyway. I knew it would since the crust recipe is always a hit.
Flan is the one that always gets me. The couple I've tried were so overwhelmingly sweet, I felt like a guy in a costume was going to jump out and warn me about the dangers of tooth decay.Mrs. Ram made Tres Leches cake this weekend. It was fantastic but holy heck is that stuff sweet. One thing came immediately to mind:
OMG these are heckin' cute.
How much does humidity affect rise? I'm guessing at least a little. My last artisan loaf didn't seem to rise quite as much, and it was good, but a bit more dense than usual. I remember reading somewhere adding powered milk might help, 1-2 teaspoons, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm using a simple, overnight rise recipe.
I'm going to take a quick inventory of what I have in my pantry and see what I can make tonight cookie-wise. Worst case, I can make chocolate chip-less cookies, which are actually my favorite.
