Here we go again! The annual Sally’s Baking Addiction Yearbook Superlatives. A post dedicated to looking back at the most popular recipes in the past year.
Professionally, 2014 was an epic year:

- Meeting you.
- Chatting about cookies with you.
- In real life.
- Baking for you on TV.

My Most Loved
You have no idea how hard this is for me. I’ve been thinking about this for over a month. (No life.) But here we go, in descending order:
Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts. I grew up eating these. And now that I can make them at home? Dangerously awesome. I had to buy a treadmill.
Gluten Free Apple Crisp. This recipe was the biggest surprise of 2014. I cannot believe how good it is.
Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Because I’m officially the most boring person alive.
Q: What were some of your favorites this year? Not particularly on my website, but any favorites that you made? Tell me about them!
