Properietor Rosie Daykin serves up recipes that are sweet and nostalgic
When Oprah Winfrey comes calling, you know you’re onto something. Butter Baked Goods’ version of the homemade Oreo was a finalist for Oprah’s 2012 Favorite Things. It was a turning point for the Vancouver bakery specializing in homespun treats. Owner Rosie Daykin now markets her famous marshmallows across Canada, the U.S. and Japan and her first cookbook, Butter Baked Goods: Nostalgic Recipes from a Little Neighbourhood Bakery is now available.
Before opening her original bakery in 2007, Daykin worked as an interior designer. Being a passionate home baker, she decided to quit her day job to create delicious desserts full-time. Her stylish pink and pistachio-coloured shop is as pretty as the cupcakes that come out of it.
Click through to find some of Daykin’s best classic recipes from her new book, including her Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies, Dream Bars, and yes, even her famous marshmallows.
Peanut butter cookies are fantastic, no argument there. But two peanutbutter cookies—with a generous helping of peanut butter filling sandwiched between them—is simply out of this world.
Makes 12 sandwich cookies.
According to Daykin, this is her bakery’s best-selling bar. It’s obvious why. The delectable combination of shortbread, cherries, walnuts, coconut and butter cream is sure to give anyone a happy sugar rush.
Makes 20 bars.
When Daykin first opened her bakery, the gourmet marshmallow was still a bit of a mystery. But word soon got out, and now Butter makes 18 different flavours of marshmallows that are shipped to specialty stores across North America. This recipe is for Butter’s classic Vanilla Marshmallow that started it all.
Makes about 64 (1 x 1-inch) marshmallows.
