Top 10 Recipes of 2016

A few weeks ago, I posted some of my very favorite photos from this year. Now that it’s the last Thursday of 2016, I’m throwing back to some of this year’s most popular and viewed recipes!


10. Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits


If you secretly make trips to Red Lobster just so you can stuff your with their famous, melt-in-your-mouth buttery Cheddar Bay Biscuits, here’s some good news for the new year: now you can make (and enjoy) them in your own home! (Recipe here.)

9. Slutty Cheesecake Bars


A thick layer of chocolate chip blondie, rich cheesecake on top, and whole Oreos crammed all throughout give these infamous bars their name. One of the very first recipes that I posted on Wallflour Girl (note the tacky rainbow wrapping paper backdrop) and still one of the most popular after five years! (Recipe here.)

8. Extra-Fudgy Kahlua Brownies with Kahlua Icing


I’m not a booze kind of girl…usually. But put a plate of these extremely fudgy Kahlua brownies (and maybe a White Russian!) in front of me and they’ll be gone before you can say “boozy.” (Recipe here.)

7. The Very BEST Tiramisu (from America’s Test Kitchen)


 My shortlist for best recipe sources is, well, short–but I would trust America’s Test Kitchen with my first-born baby. This simple but authentic tiramisu recipe is the best that I’ve ever made and constantly requested at family functions! (Recipe here.)

6. Idiot-Proof Healthy Chocolate Chip Bars


Here’s an idiot-proof recipe that you can hand off to even the most baking-illiterate of your friends! These one-bowl, dump-and-stir chocolate chip oat bars are healthy, too, making them perfect for kicking off a brand new year. (Recipe here.)

5. Hawaiian Chantilly Layer Cheesecake Cake


This recipe holds a special place in my heart: inspired by one late-night, post-movie dinner conversation at Lenny’s Deli, my ex shared his fond memories of a dessert known as Chantilly cake. This rich Hawaiian chocolate cake and custard-like frosting sandwiches layers of creamy New York cheesecake, making it possibly one of my favorite desserts of all time. (Recipe here.)

4. The Very Best Kimchi Fried Rice


I don’t use superlatives often, but this kimchi fried rice from Maangchi really is the best that I’ve ever tasted, period. With the perfect balance of gochujang, kimchi, and sesame oil, this recipe is ideal for those cold nights when you just need some spicy comfort food. (Recipe here.)

3. White Chocolate Cookie Butter Pecan Shortbread Cookies


If you’ve never heard of cookie butter, you’re missing out on the warm, gingerbread-spiced cookie spread that makes the world go round! Add pecan shortbread cookies and white chocolate into the mix to make a delightfully crowd-pleasing (and easy!) dessert for any New Year’s Eve party. (Recipe here.)

2. No-Bake M&M’s Cookie Butter Avalanche Bars


Speaking of cookie butter…these no-bake, no-hassle bars are my most requested and personal favorite desserts to make for friends, family, and loved ones! They’re surprisingly light and addicting: all you need is some rice cereal, marshmallows, cookie butter, white chocolate, and M&M’s. (Recipe here.)

1. My Favorite Puffy, Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Human hair Full Lace Wigs

With over 50,000 views this years alone and more Pins than I can possibly count, these amazingly puffy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are THE most popular recipe ever on Wallflour Girl! They are every bit as soft and magical as they look, so run for the kitchen and whip up a batch ASAP. (Recipe here.)
