The hubster is super picky when it comes to paleo food - especially paleo desserts. When I decided to make a trio of American favorites for our New Year's party dessert, I first had to win him over.
First up in the trio was a rich, chocolatey brownie. Fortunately, I already had a hubster-approved brownie recipe, my Fudgy Flourless Brownies. I whipped up a batch so he could remember how good they were and I was on my way to the next mini dessert...
The second in my lineup was to be an apple pie. He always likes my apple pie fillings, so the only thing I had to sell to him was the crust. Two recipes later and we had a winner, Martine's Pie Crust.
The final mini dessert would be much harder to perfect... I tried recipe after recipe, making a batch of cookies each day. Some of them got the "okay" stamp from him, but none of them really impressed him. I was so fed up with following recipes, and I really had the impression that they all looked the same anyway, that I just decided to wing it and see what would happen.
