The Boastful Baker

because every cook praises her own broth


  1. These look amazing… where can I get the recipe? My husband is drooling over the picture!

  2. I was actually just thinking about 2 weeks ago how much I loved oatmeal cream pies and how I wanted to recreate them. I would love this recipe!

  3. Give me a day or two to type the recipe!

  4. I am definitely looking forward to you posting the recipe, these look great!

  5. I can’t wait for this recipe. I read your about page and discovered you knit. I knit as well and also struggle to balance the two hobbies. I find when I have a big knitting deadline my cooking blog definitely suffers. Your blog is great though!

  6. totaly loving ur pic!!! pls do post the recipe…. cant wait to try these n get my hands on one.hope mine look as good as yours… but ill need the recipe for that!!1;)

  7. Yum! I’m addicted already – looking forward to that recipe! THANKS!

  8. Oh, I’m really looking forward to this recipe. They look delicious.

  9. don’t tease us like this! :)

    I’m anxiously awaiting the recipe…

  10. I keep checking back for the recipe! I LOVE LD’s snack cakes. Homemade ones would be so fun!

  11. Tomorrow I will post the recipe. I promise!!!

  12. Don’t kill me…but I can’t print the recipe yet because the copy I have of it is illegible. I shall try to obtain a legible copy of it this week. Please stay tuned.

  13. Can someone tell me the point of publishing a picture of something edible on a food blog site with no intention of telling anyone how to make it, particularly when part of the title says “when you can make these at home?”

    That people are begging for the recipe (and now learn that you don’t even have a copy that YOU yourself can use) is just pathetic.

  14. Art- Sorry you feel the need to be so negative. It has NEVER been my intention with this blog to post recipes with every single picture I post. I’m sorry that you feel that should be the point of my blog because quite frankly it is not…a lot of the time I just want to show a pretty picture of the food I made.

    As for this post in particular, this post was a Wordless Wednesday post. They are not supposed to have a long blog entry associated with the picture. The picture is supposed to speak for itself and I believe it does. Writing another blog post with the recipe is entirely up to me…as is the time frame in which I do so.

  15. I would just take it as a compliment that there are that many people who are dying for your recipe (some even resorted to anger!). I just wanted to comment that I would also love to have the recipe when you get a chance. I demand you give it to me now – just kidding! (:

  16. I guess you’re not posting this recipe then. *sigh* I really loved your homemade fig newtons and wanted to try this one too.

  17. ah. I just saw the comment about this recipe on the other post. I await your recipe goodness.

  18. Dear Melissa,

    I just found your blog today via this picture on I totally understand that your motivation for this blog is not to give out recipes for every picture that you take.

    I find it really sad that it appears the comments of one negative person has turned you off to posting this recipe. However, I can also understand why you would not want to.

    You also may not have posted it because you couldn’t find a legible copy. However, if you did find a legible copy I’d love to be able to get this recipe, not to be selfish, but even if you could email it to me would be great.

    I know this is lengthy, but if you could let me just make my appeal as to why I want this recipe. Basically, when I was a boy I had a crush on Little Debbie simply because of these cookies. Okay, maybe not a crush, but a special place in my heart for her. Just kidding! Anyhow, I really liked this and I would really like to make them for my son, so that he can get the same joy as I once had. I know your logical reply to this would be just go to the store and buy them. However, I live in Seoul, South Korea and we won’t be moving back to the U.S. for at least several more years. I am an English teacher here, and not in the U.S. military here, which means I can not simply go shop on the army base and buy them. If I could I would, but since I can’t your recipe would provide me the opportunity to create some of the wonderful memories for my son as I had as a boy.

    I really hope you hear the sincerity of my please as I make this request to you and that you will post the recipe. I’m going to join your RSS feed just in hopes that it will appear here.

    Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I hope you will allow my son to also find his first love.

  19. Awesome, my son & I eagerly await. Thank you so much!

  20. Rob,

    I do still intend to post the recipe…I’ve been waiting for the cookbook to be available at my local library. You noticed my post at a good time as the book is now available when I get the opportunity to pick it up. So stay tune…I do plan to post the recipe soon!
