    I’ve cheated and made pot pie with canned biscuits and my kids hated it. I should have known they wouldn’t like it as they aren’t crazy about those biscuits. I need to give your recipe a try.

    A lot of my older recipes (ahem) have evaporated milk in them. It was a staple in my mother’s era…probably because of WWII.

  • ingrid - 04/24/2010 - 10:38 am

    LOL, I’m one of those that would prefer a different berry. Blueberries are hit or miss with me. 🙂 This looks great! I love that it’s a no bake dessert but as usual I do have a question. How long can you leave those sitting out? Remember I told you I was doing a dessert table for my brother’s wedding “party” (it’s very informal)? Well, I was thinking this would be great as mini cheesecake bites. I could put bowls of sauces and berries to top them with. Are they too lemony for a chocolate sauce? Sooooo, what do you think?

I want to make each and every one of your dishes they look fabulous!ReplyCancel

  • camille - 04/22/2010 - 7:20 pm

    I have to tell you, this was a great dinner! My husband was thrilled to have stir fry that he actually liked. He’s always a good sport about what I fix, but he confessed tonight that he has always hated my stir fry! I couldn’t blame him as I had a hard time eating it myself. It was just nourishment. How boring! I did make a mistake, though. I got on auto-pilot and tripled the whole recipe without thinking. I even tripled the red pepper flakes. Oh, Mama! It was HOT! But definitely still tasted good. I can’t wait to make it again with less spice!

    Thanks for your fun blog! I don’t always have time to comment, but I want you to know your efforts are appreciated. And I was so surprised to see that you have grandchildren and a grey-haired husband! You sound way too young for all that! (:ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie - 04/28/2010 - 11:58 am

    I know this might be a silly question, but I have to ask. So if you made it at 7am.. how did you store it to serve it at dinner time? I would worry that the veggies would get soggy? It looks delicious, can’t wait to try it! I love your blog, it’s amazing. I just look at it all day long at work and get so excited to cook dinner! Thanks.ReplyCancel

    Thank you for a great recipe! I too have subjected my family to years of boring, tasteless stir-fry. But everyone loved this one! I think the only thing I will change is the amount of pepper, but I’m a spice wimp. Obviously I didn’t include the red peppers, I’m seriously a wimp! 😉 But we thought it tasted great without it! Thanks again!ReplyCancel

In the realm of Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe is the winner . . . at least in my book. It’s a Family Favorite.  We make these for almost every holiday dinner, and in between. When I was younger, we would devour these very quickly at the dinner table.  If there were any left-overs, we would […]

  • ola torin - 01/16/2011 - 1:43 pm

    lovely! i just wanted to give you a tip; in Sweden we make almost the same thing. Skip the cheese and nestle in ansjovis instead. We call it “Jansons Frestelse” ( jansons temptation) it is a must for Christmas, but tates just as good all year around. best result with Swedish ansjovis, bot regular also works.
    have a nice dinner!!

  • zen zazen - 01/23/2011 - 1:01 am

  • Finn - 03/18/2011 - 4:48 am

    This is in fact a very Nordic thing, very much like Ola said. In Finland we make loads of different variations of this dish by adding an extra ingredient in the mix. The most common ones probably are anchoves, cold smoked salmon, smoked ham, chicken or just other veggies to make a vegetarian one. My personal favorite is the one with cold smoked salmon, it’s incredibly good! And if you boost it up with a hint of goat cheese, you’re in heaven 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne @ - 04/22/2011 - 10:24 pm

    So Jonna, I knew friend that I could count on you. I’ve been tasked to take a side dish to our Easter dinner on Sunday. I volunteered to bring some sort of potato. Wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do, I’m little burnt out on the scalloped potatoes I’ve been making. So I decided to peruse – as I usually do when looking for a good recipe. I checked out the Pioneer Woman. Didn’t see anything. Then headed to Picky Palate, still nothing. Came over here (which is where I should have started) and found THESE!!! I will be making them FOR SURE on Sunday… I will definitely let you know how they turn out. I’m sure they will be fabulous, everything I make of yours is divine. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 10/13/2011 - 8:17 am

      Thanks Matti,
      Try layering browned chicken breasts or browned Pork chops in amongst the potatoes, before putting the cream and grated cheese over the top.
      It’s a full meal …..and delicious!

    I started using Stumbleupon yesterday and found these potatoes and made them today. My goodness. I ate almost all of them (at least I only made half of it) by myself.

  • Amanda - 01/30/2012 - 12:26 pm

    I know it wont be the same, but could frozen shredded hasbrowns be used instead of the fresh potato?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/30/2012 - 5:16 pm

      Hi Amanda,
      I worry that frozen hash browns wouldn’t need to bake long enough to thicken the cream sufficiently.
      If you can find the french fry shape, that are not partially baked, those might work.
      I’ve never used anything but real potatoes. If you try it, let us all know how it works for you.
      The only recipes I’ve seen that use frozen hash browns are called “Funeral Potatoes” around here. The recipes uses
      Cream of Chicken soup, instead of cream.
      Good luck,

  • Beverly - 02/01/2012 - 4:12 pm

    At first I wondered, just cheese and cream? Because we all know what happens when you just melt cheese…it turns into an oily mess. But I thought maybe with the cream it would mix somehow. Well I’m 50 minutes in and just pulled the top off. Yep….looks like an oily mess to me. Not really like your picture at all. How did your cheese not get oily without the use of a white sauce?ReplyCancel

    Simplicity at its best!! I made just two servings of this using ramekins and two potatoes. Used the julienne blade of my mandolin to cut the potatoes, guessed on the half & half (but did add some dry mustard to it) and used plenty of good cheese. This would be good also with a few chopped shallots or leeks added in. Could be dressed up even more but the original is great 🙂 Would make an excellent sub for fries or baked potato to go with that steak.ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 06/04/2012 - 7:48 pm

      Hi Taty,

      You probably could use a microwave, but it won’t make the bottom of the potatoes golden & crispy brown.
      That’s what makes it so delicious!

      Hi Julie,

      You can add onions if you like. I have also made this the day before. I undercook it slightly. When cool refrigerate the potatoes. The next day, heat the oven to 250 and heat until nice hot & bubbly.


  • Kristin - 09/03/2012 - 7:46 pm

    Ok, after reading your story, which was hilarious, I HAD to try these potatoes. Oh… my! YUM! Perfect recipe, they were delicious. Yes I have leftovers and I’m glad I don’t have to hide them under my bed. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Chelle - 09/16/2012 - 8:54 pm

    This recipe looks amazing! I was wondering though, I’m cooking some pork chops at the same time at 350, how long would you say I should cook these at this temp instead of 400?

    Also, should I try and put it towards the middle rack, or would it be better to be on the top rack or bottom?


    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 09/16/2012 - 9:03 pm

      Hi chelle,

      Cook the potatoes until they are fork tender. I like to lower the potatoes to the lowest rack for the last 30 min. or
      so, so that they get crispy on the bottom. I would brown your chops, and lay them in the potato and cream and cook them all together!

    These sound wonderful. At the risk of making some people cringe, has anyone tried substitutung greek yogurt for the cream? We’re always dieting and trying to eat healthy and that’s ths only way I could get away with it. Husband watches me like a hawk!ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 10/11/2012 - 3:48 pm

      Hi Jo,

      I haven’t tried yogurt with these potatoes. You could always use half and half instead of cream. Buy reduced fat cheese if you like.
      Tell your husband you will run it off! Do you watch him as well?
      Just wondering . . .

  • christina - 11/06/2012 - 8:35 am

    Was wondering what happens if you don’t have foil????ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 11/06/2012 - 9:56 am

      Hi Christina,

      You could use a shallow cookie sheet to cover the top of your baking dish.
      The foil helps keep the moisture of the cream from drying out….while your potatoes are trying to soften.
      Remove the cover towards the end of baking time, and move the dish to the bottom of your oven.
      We like the bottom really crispy brown, and the top moist and cheesy!


  • Fay - 11/09/2012 - 1:46 pm

    Hi was wondering if I can use shostring frozen potatoes in stead of fresh!? If so do I make it from frozen of let the potatoes thaw? Thx u FayReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 11/09/2012 - 5:44 pm

      Hi Fay,

      I really don’t think that they would work very well. Frozen potatoes are usually partially cooked. I think the potatoes would be done much quicker than a raw potato, and then the cream would not have a chance to do its magic. I really say though….I’ve never used frozen potatoes in this dish.


  • Kristina - 11/10/2012 - 11:56 am

    I made these the other night and oh man-they are amazing! My husband even took a plate to work with him for breakfast the next morning. I didn’t use the parsley (didn’t have any) and instead of pepper I used garlic salt (can’t eat pepper). I’m making them again tonight, per the request of my family:) thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Casie - 11/11/2012 - 8:55 am

    If u put chicken in it ..would u put it on the bottom raw ..or would u bake chicken first and cut it up?? or put it whole.baked on the top

    *** Hi Jamie,

    Brown the Chicken on both sides, then just layer it in between the potatoes….pour the cream over all, cheese, parsley, salt & pepper…cover and bake


  • Brie - 12/17/2012 - 8:50 pm

    Would it work using cream cheese as a substitute for the whipping cream and other cheese? I’ve read that cream cheese is considered a “good fat” and is lower in calories. (Although, the recipe sounds DELISH the way you make it.) My tastebuds say :Oh yeah!” But my hiney says, “Oh no you don’t!”ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 12/18/2012 - 8:57 pm

      Hi Brie,

      Gee …I’ve never tried this with Cream cheese.
      I just don’t think the results would look or taste the same!

  • Setjay - 01/06/2013 - 1:44 pm

    Sooo i made this tonight because it sounded and looked delicious… I thought : hummm yummy creamy cheesy american food !!!
    But i had a doubt when it came from the oven, and then i tasted it. I knew that casserole : it is called “gratin dauphinois”.
    And i am so ashamed not to have recognized it before, because this dish was born in the town i always lived : Lyon, France…
    My excuses are : we slice the potatoes instead of cutting them like fries + we add milk in it + i have 3 babies and i’m very tired lol
    So i ate french tonight. Again 🙁ReplyCancel

      Artic Circle is a fast food franchise around these parts. I’m sorry….

      that you get from baking it in the oven.

      Hi Julie,

      You probably could, but it would be more like scalloped potatoes. Not as rich and creamy.
      Substitute Half & Half instead.


  • Tanya - 01/31/2013 - 4:24 am

    I was wondering if you can put all of the ingredients in a foil pan and freeze it. If so, how much longer would you have to bake it in order for the potatoes to cook through? I love this recipe and have had it many times, but I also like to make a surplus of menu items and stick them in the freezer for easy go-to dinners.ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 01/31/2013 - 10:44 am

      Hi Tanya,

      Unfortunately, raw potatoes do not freeze well….they get mushy and discolor.
      You can however, try this:
      Make ready-to-cook frozen French fries:

      Peel and cut the potatoes you want to freeze into “french fry lengths.”
      Boil cut potatoes in salted water until partially cooked.
      Drain and place in a single layer on a sprayed sheet pan.
      Freeze until solid; transfer to freezer bags or containers and put in freezer. That way, all you have to do, if pour the cream over the potatoes and sprinkle cheese over the top.
      You can use this same method for making french fries:

      To cook the frozen French fries: toss frozen potatoes with 2 tbsp. of oil, place them in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake at 425 degrees until nicely browned (about 15 to 20 minutes). Turn occasionally. Salt and serve.

      I don’t do this often, but I know that if you partially cook the potatoes it will work. Just don’t toss them in the freezer “RAW”

    We absolutly love these potatoes. The first time we tried them I made them exactly like yours. Then the next time I added real bacon bits on top of the potatoes before the cheese, made them even better. Give that a try if you like bacon.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer - 03/11/2013 - 5:53 pm

    I have made this several times, and it will most likely elevate my cholesterol quickly… It is so delish though that its worth it. Tonight I thought, how can I make it into an entire meal? I remembered I had some Kielbasa sausage… I just threw that in for a one dish meal. It’s in the oven now, I can’t imagine it being anything but fabulous!ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 03/12/2013 - 9:53 am

      Hi Jennifer,

      Oh Kielbasa Sausage sounds like the perfect addition!
      I’ve used browned Chicken breasts and Pork chops many times, but this is something I need to try.
      Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment.


  • amy - 03/12/2013 - 9:34 pm

    LOVED this dish. Also love how versatile it is. Tonight I made it with cut up chicken breast i sauted in chopped onions for a few minutes and put the mixture in with the potatoes. I also covered with bacon bits. After applying salt and pepper i also applied McCormick’s Perfect Pinch roasted garlic and bell pepper seasoning.

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe!ReplyCancel

  • Camille - 03/15/2013 - 9:38 pm

    These were SO yummy! My husband & brother talked about them all through dinner! I added real bacon pieces also!ReplyCancel

  • Robin - 03/16/2013 - 9:08 pm

    This is very similar to my sister-in-law’s recipe. We always request it for all of our holiday gatherings. She uses frozen hashbrowns instead of making raw fries. Although she only uses heavy whipping cream and adds a little Lawry’s seasoning salt on top. They are so good! She is well known for these potatoes. I just thought I’d add a variation to your recipe. It’s a real time saver to just throw in the frozen hashbrowns and add cream. I’ve also added diced ham to make it like scalloped potatoes and ham. Heavenly!ReplyCancel

  • Susanna - 03/17/2013 - 4:29 pm

    I just made this dish and it was great! I saw a comment from someone earlier wondering about using frozen french fries-well i used them bc i didnt have any raw ones on hand and they worked great! Deff easier than cutting up raw potatoes and it worked just fine! I used regular frozen straight fries (not shoe string- i think they would be too thin since they’re pre cooked) and i cooked them for the entire hour! Great recipe!ReplyCancel

  • Dovemama - 04/13/2013 - 11:17 am

    Tried these and they were delicious! The entire family ate them up and it was enough for dinner two nights. They even reheated in the oven well. Will be making these again. The only change I made was to use a combo of sharp cheddar and white sharp cheddar cheese. Yum!!!ReplyCancel

  • Christie - 04/19/2013 - 2:31 pm

    Do you think pasta would work instead of potatoes?ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 04/19/2013 - 5:40 pm

      Hi Christie,

      I just don’t think that you should substitute pasta in this dish.
      Pasta wouldn’t take near as long to cook. While the potatoes cook in this dish,
      the cream cooks down and gets thicker creating a yummy sauce. The potatoes on the edges
      and the bottom get crispy and golden.

      There are several other pasta dishes with yummy sauces on the blog, so pull up a chair and browse!

      Hope this helps,

  • Christie - 04/19/2013 - 7:25 pm

    Thanks for your response! I wasn’t expecting a response so soon, so I ended up trying it with pasta anyways (since my kids were begging for mac and cheese tonight!) It turned out really good! I’ve made it with potatoes several times before and I definitely like it more with potatoes, but pasta (with some broccoli snuck in) was a winner with the kids so I’ll definitely be making it again like that!ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 04/19/2013 - 8:06 pm

      Hi Christie,

      I’m so glad this worked. Tell us all….I’m thinking you used “un-cooked” pasta?
      What type of pasta worked for you. I’ll be trying this myself!

      Thanks for sharing.


  • Christie - 04/19/2013 - 9:18 pm

    I used bow-tie pasta. I cooked it almost all the way (just a few minutes short of it being done) before I put it into the baking dish because I didn’t think there was any way it would soften up in the oven alone like the potatoes do. I pretty much followed your directions, but I took it out of the oven after about 40 minutes. Next time I’ll probably try it at 350 or 375 degrees instead of 400, but other than that it was great! Like I said, my very picky kids loved it and my little one who I can never get to eat even asked for more! Whenever I make it with potatoes, I nestle pieces of cooked chicken in there too, I’ll be doing that as well next time I make it. Thanks for such an awesome recipe! I’ve been making this for years thanks to you!ReplyCancel

  • T. Hannibal Gray - 05/05/2013 - 9:04 pm

    Here’s a bit of a time saver to save you half of your baking time. After you cut the potatoes into scallops leave them in flat slices and omit cutting them into fries. Put the potatoes slices into a boiling pot of cold water and turn on the heat. When the water begins boiling reduce the heat to a simmer and Cook for 7 or 8 minutes more. Drain thoroughly and layer them in a baking dish. Then when you pour in the cream, pour in an equivalent amount of water and add three or four pats of butter. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes at 375 degrees. Check the potatoes the last ten minutes, if they begin to dry out too quickly, especially if you are at sea-level, add a little milk (1/4 cup) to finish baking the dish.

    The last ten minutes of baking after you add an additional liquid as necessary, gently stir in your cheese and cover the dish with grated cheese topping. Allow it to melt and get a slight crust over the top. This dish is actually a kind of au gratin potatoes and you can also make it without the cheese as simple scalloped creamed potatoes. Adding about 3 drops of Tabasco Sauce (concentrated Cayenne) when you add the cream and water does not make it hot, but adds a bit of delicious flavor. This is a nice comfort food and many cultures make it basically the same way as slices, fries and chunks and baby whole potatoes.ReplyCancel

  • Eileen - 05/06/2013 - 2:35 am

    I just made this creamy cheesy potato and as we speak it is now in the oven. I did not see the shoestring size though. I cut the potatoes up the size of fries. I hope that would still work. I put bacon bits, thus not putting any salt because i figured bacon is salty already. Am i on the right track?ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 05/06/2013 - 7:18 am

      Hi Eileen,

      You sure are! If your potatoes are cut a bit thicker, they will still work just fine, but take a bit longer to cook through. These seem to need a bit of salt, but you could
      replace other seasonings in it’s place. Make sure that you cook on the lower rack of the oven the last 20 min. or so, to get that nice golden glaze on the bottom of the potatoes.


  • Chris - 05/07/2013 - 6:12 pm

    I got these from Pinterest and have made them several times already this summer. They always receive rave reviews and are super easy to serve at a cook out. I cheat on the potatoes. For a single batch I use a bag of French fries that I have allowed to thaw. I use the cut that is between shoestring and steak fries. I have used steak fries and they work- I just like the others better. This way is really fast. This is my favorite recipe of the summer! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Crystal White - 08/07/2013 - 6:00 am

    Good morning, I don’t have any half and half, whipping cream, or a way to the store. Can I use 2% milk with a little water?? That’s all I have. Thanks in advance.ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 08/07/2013 - 7:09 am

      Hi Crystal,

      I think you would end up with Scalloped potatoes instead. It would probably be good, but not the creamy consistency that the whipping cream
      gives. Maybe you have a can of evaporated milk mixed with your milk….. that you could use. That would also give it a creamy texture.


  • Suzanne - 08/17/2013 - 11:40 am

    Just found this on Pinterest. Was wondering if you could do this in a crockpot? Or lower the temperature of the oven and increase the time of baking? Would like for it to bake while we are at church 🙂 sounds yummy. Can’t wait!ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 08/17/2013 - 5:06 pm

      Hi Suzanne,

      I’ve never made these in a crockpot, however you probably could.
      The yummy part of this dish though, is the crispy edges and browned bottom that the oven gives the potatoes.
      Possibly you can set your oven timer to come on about 1 1/2 hours to 1 hour and 45 minutes before you get home from church.
      That’s what I do!


  • Jennifer - 08/26/2013 - 5:14 pm

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 09/17/2013 - 12:16 pm

      Hi Brenda,

      I ALWAYS . . . during the last 20 to 30 minutes of baking time, lower the rack to the bottom of the oven.
      This will help create that golden, crispy layer of potatoes on the bottom of your glass dish!

      They are good either way, but the golden, crispy layer is to die for!

Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow. When I transferred the leftovers to a container there was yummy, sticky, gooey, cheesy goodness around the edges that got a big crispy. Ohhhh, just a few fork fulls that went straight into my mouth before the pan went in to soak. Thank you so much for this yummy recipe! Its in my pinterest board called Food Porn. 🙂ReplyCancel

      I love to Brown Chicken Breasts Or Brown Pork Chop and layer the chicken or Pork in between the slices or layers of the
      raw potatoes. Pour the cream over all, layer cheese, cover with foil and bake. This way you have a full main dish!

      Hi Devon,

      I wish I could tell you, but I’ve never tried this dish with sour cream.
      I think you would probably have better luck using evaporated milk in place of the whipped cream if you have
      some handy. Whipping Cream is the winner!


  • Christy - 10/10/2013 - 8:40 pm

    I made these potatoes tonight, and they are seriously the best form of potatoes I have ever had! I didn’t use Parmesan, but next time I definitely will, and will add some more shredded cheese because I think I used too much cream. It was still super delicious despite my lack of cheese. If I hadn’t made a steak to go with it I would have been able to eat the whole pan.

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 12/01/2014 - 4:26 pm

      Hi Heather,

      I’m sorry I wasn’t able to see your question earlier. Hopefully you went ahead and baked them at your brothers house.
      I’m sure they turned out just fine.
      They can sit in the refrigerator for a few hours, but much longer and the potatoes will start to turn brownish.
      The dish will taste just fine, but the starch in the spuds will alter the color after a while, if not baked.

      Thanks so much,

  • Jonna - 04/09/2010 - 10:37 am

    Hi Ingrid,

    Thanks for your question. I understand your concern about the use of Raw eggs. While most eggs are perfectly fine to eat raw, there is always a very small risk that one egg might be contaminated by bacteria. According to the American Egg board, about one in every 20,000 eggs might be contaminated by Salmonella. I have never tried this myself, but if you are leary, you could try this method of pasturizing eggs. You just must be very careful not to cook the egg! You can also buy pasteurized eggs in supermarkets.

    Here is what I found:

    How To Pasteurize Raw Eggs

    Place the eggs in a pot with cold water. Put the water on medium heat and stand by to watch as the temperature rises. You don’t want the temperature of the water to exceed 150 degrees. If you want to be exact, you can keep a thermometer probe in the water, if not 140-150 degrees is the stage before bubbles start to form. At that temperature, you can just about keep your finger in the water for a few seconds before you burn yourself. When you reach this temperature, try to keep it. So lower the heat, and watch so the temperature doesn’t rise, then keep the eggs in the water for about 3-5 minutes.ReplyCancel

    Just had to tell you, I love your blog, your writing, your beautiful pictures, and of course your recipes. I must ask you, what do you do with all of this delicious food you bake? Since it’s just you and your husband (it is for us too, since we have one little baby), do you just take it all to the neighbors? You could mail it to me if you have extra. 🙂 I was just curious and finally had to ask.
    Thanks for being so kind and sharing your talent with all of us.ReplyCancel

  • Jonna - 04/09/2010 - 1:29 pm

    Hi Haley,

    This question makes me laugh!
    I do give much of what I bake away, since I have a husband who rarely eats sweets! I have one daughter who lives close by, and her husband is thankful for the goodies. Neighbors are always bringing me wonderful treats, and so I like to “Thank them right back!”
    Love, JonnaReplyCancel

  • Niki Bagley - 04/09/2010 - 8:57 pm

    Okay, I just got done putting it together and put it in the freezer to take to game night tomorrow night. It doesn’t look as pretty as yours, but it sure taste yummy on my fingers! 😉 Thank you for all the work you do on here! I love it so much!!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara - 04/10/2010 - 12:01 pm

    My first visit to your blog…it’s really lovely!
    Just had to comment on this as my mother made something somewhat similar and everyone loves it! It’s is frozen and made without cream cheese, but very similar. I could eat platefuls of it!

    Copying your recipe and will try it this summer!ReplyCancel

  • Krystin - 04/10/2010 - 2:20 pm

    I found this recipe just in time. My friends invited me and my husband over for dinner. It looks so good and wasn’t too hard to make!

  • Leslie - 04/12/2010 - 9:49 am

    So, I tried this and brought it to a family dinner. Everyone loved it and commented on how light and fluffy it was. I also used strawberries in mine because I had an abundance of them and no raspberries. It was still great! One question though, would it work to bake this? I just had some questioning looks from some of my guests when I told them that it used three eggs and it wasn’t baked! LOL! It was sure gorgeous and yummy though!ReplyCancel

      Hi Alys,
      I’ve considered it, but that’s really as far as it’s ever gone.
      There are sooooo many cookbooks out there already, and I’m really just a simple cook.

  • Beth - 05/02/2012 - 6:10 am

    This looks like heaven! We’re big pasta eaters at this house. Can’t wait to try it. My husband has an acquaintance who butchers his own pork and makes the most delicious bacon! I call it crack bacon because I told my husband it wasn’t very nice to bring home bacon laced with crack. It’s that addictive! SO looking forward to tasting this!ReplyCancel

I told them I had a recipe they would die for and she said she couldn’t die until Friday so I told her maybe she’d better not eat any of these becuase they just might kill her. I might just as well smear them on my thighs and butt as eat them cause thats where they’re going anyway! Elleah and I have a blast pouring over your blog and my entire family spread all over the country is in on it. I hear you dont’t eat much of the stuff you bake, believe me, it has been discussed! how could you and look like you do? I’m just down the road if you need a place for your leftovers!!!!ReplyCancel

Love love love it. 🙂 But, um… I would be lying if I said I didn’t secretly hope I’d get one of those DARLING aprons 🙂 I seriously could use one. I’m absolutely in love with both. I adore both green and pink colors. So if my name is picked, I would love either color 🙂

I have been checking your blog about everyday the past year and a half / two years – basically the beginning. ooooh – and i love the pink apron (green one is super cute too.)ReplyCancel

    oh… I sure hope this is an april fools joke… not a funny one… would miss your recipes…and ideas.. but I like the pink…ReplyCancel

  • Carol - 04/02/2010 - 11:21 pm

    I have really enjoyed visiting your blog. I only found it a few weeks ago from a link on my niece’s blog. I have tried more recipes from your blog in the last few weeks than I have from any other place I visit. They have all been wonderful and my family thinks I have finally become a great cook! Both aprons are darling! Thanks for sharing your many recipes and so much more!ReplyCancel

    Okay, this pretty much sucks . . . because I’m YOUR *****#1 FAN***** AND I’m going to get ACED out of you going private – I’m like comment #250!!!! Oh Crap!!!!

    I LOVE your aprons – soooooo cute. I love them both, BUT, if I had to choose, it would be the pink one!

    Okay, I’d like to petition for clemency and would love to have my NAME moved to the FRONG of the list (special favors for x-neighbors = political pull) ! ! ! ! !

    QUESTION: WHY ARE YOU GOING PRIVATE? You must run these major decisions past your ‘agent’ (that would be me) before you make these life-altering decisions!!!

    Luv, MeReplyCancel

  • Wendy Brown - 04/03/2010 - 12:46 am

    I am not a blogger but I love to look on line and I love to shop on line. I just recently discovered your fantastic site and I absolutely LOVE all you ideas. I have actually been inspired to get off my butt and bake. Everything is GREAT. I see I am probably too late to get in your private link but hope that maybe I will still have a small chance. Your aprons are adorable. Either one would be fine. Do you by chance sell them as well ? Have a few ideas for gifts to my friends. Thanks again for all your ideas

    Why would you want to go private, there are so many good recipes on this blog that a lot of people that are just learning to cook could benefit from your blog, the pictures and recipe instructions are so clear and precise and you give a quick response to people who leave comments on your blog if they need a little help with the recipes. But if that’s your decision to go Private, I hope I’m included. Thanks. Jackie,

    Hi Barb,
    I used a 14 oz bag (5 1/3 cups of coconut)
    If you don’t want to worry about spreading as they are baking, you could add about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of extra coconut.
    They will still be good, but not as chewy.

This perfect dessert is fruit – a -licious.  He actually enjoyed it, but afterwards said; “I’d rather just eat the fruit!   Anyway, it’s really, really good.  So there. […]

    Your husband sounds like mine. Crazy people who don’t LOVE chocolate. 🙂 I do love chocolate, but I also love berries and this looks really good!ReplyCancel

    We don’t like chocolate either and I’m not too crazy about warm mushy fruit but my kiddos sure are!

    Jonna, how many brownie pops were you able to make out of one batch of brownies? How many days in advance can I make these? I’ll tell you why I ask….I’m making a dessert table for my brother’s wedding-ish reception, party. Thanks ahead of time for the info.

    Btw, I love your blog and all your photos.

  • Cassie - 06/23/2010 - 12:40 pm

    Going to try these for the 4th of July – any suggestions on how to make them without the stick?


  • Susie - 01/19/2011 - 10:41 am

    I loved your ideas on the brownie pops. I’m going to try making them this weekend. I want to make them for a 80th birthday party, but I want to make sure they come out before I say anything. This is the first time I have seen your blog and I love it. You have very good ideas.

  • Elise - 04/22/2011 - 2:25 pm

    Did you make a 9×13 pan or 8×8 of brownies?

    How many brownie pops did your recipe make?

    Having a problem with chocolate -Used milk chocolate melts not dark chocolate. Milk chocolate would not melt to the right consistency. It was always too thick. The pop would come off the stick and the chocolate was so heavy it was thick & goopy on the pop. I know it’s operator error… I’m thinking it has to be the dark instead of milk chocolate.. Any advise is helpful… you make it look so easy. But even the pics could not help a beginners like me. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 09/05/2011 - 10:56 am

      Hi there,
      I used Milk Chocolate as well. If it seems too thick, just add a teaspoon of vegetable oil to the melted chocolate. Add more if needed to get the
      consistency that works well for you. Also, before sticking the sticks into the brownie or cake balls, dip the end of the stick in the melted chocolate, then
      into the balls. Refrigerate the balls with the sticks inserted, so that the chocolate sets up. This will help secure them, so that they don’t come off.
      Hopefully this will help for the next go round!

    I would also like to know how long these will keep. Do they keep in the refrigerator? They look amazing! I’ll probably make these tonight!ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 11/03/2011 - 3:37 pm

      Hi Carla,

      I didn’t keep mine in the fridge, just in a tupperware type container. They didn’t last that long!

  • tmc - 04/08/2014 - 10:14 am

    I came on here to print off the sweet & sour recipe and ran across these brownie pops. I obsessed about them all weekend and made them yesterday. They were super easy and a great hit with everyone! They are very rich & need a big glass of milk to go with them. Quite impressive looking though and not hard at all.ReplyCancel
