And, of course, there are the posts from years past that never stop being in the top! The Peanut Butter Football, Butterfinger Fudge, and Lemon Meringue Pie Fudge were all in the top 10 for views from 2013, but they weren’t posted in 2013, so they’re not in this top 10 list. But they are three of the top recipes on this site!

What are your favorite recipes from Crazy for Crust? Have you made anything you loved? (Be nice! LOL)

  1. Good gracious, everything looks amazing! I’ve got to check out the crescent roll roundup and that oreo peanut butter…. WOW!

  2. Seriously everything here looks unbelievable! You had an incredible year! Congrats!!

  3. I’ve made your cinnamon Pretzel Bites, Oreo peanut butter (with sunflower butter because of the kids’ peanut allergy), and the Carrot Cake Roll. Twice! All awesome. Just like you. Great year, Dorothy. Here’s to another delicious 12 months. Cheers!

  4. I looove those posts at the end of the year with the most viewed recipes 😀 I think it is so much fun I also had to do it 🙂 I love your recipes, especially the Carrot Cake Roll!! It looks delicious, I think I might wanna try that once 🙂
    By the way, in your picture you say 2014 (instead of 2013 I guess? ;))
    Take care,
    rebecca 🙂

  5. I made the lemon rolls and Scott ate them all at once! Loved the carrot cake roll too

  6. Totally intrigued by that Oreo peanut butter. I think I’m going to have to make that really soon!

  7. I believe you. These are some of my favorites. Here is to what’s to come in 2014.

  8. What a delicious year Dorothy!! Here’s to a fabulous 2014!!

    Happy New Year!

  9. It’s definitely been a great year – and a yummy one – for Crazy for Crust. All of these look phenomenal! Can’t wait to see you soon!

  10. Thankfully, I don’t have to make many of them since I get to sample your originals!!! Keep them coming; love them all. Congrats on a wonderful year.
    Love you, Mom

  11. I have made your toffee chocolate pecan pie, multiple times. Sooooo good. How special is that comment from your Mom. I really enjoy your website Dorothy. Happy New Year.

  12. I have to catch up! I think hubby would love the peanut butter fudge, and I also have to try those yummy-looking cupcakes. Maybe New Year’s Eve! (;

  13. You are my first go-to because I know everything is going to taste great. The peanut butter cinnamon rolls are awesome (my rolling technique not so awesome), I’ve made the Rocky Road Nutella Pudding Cookies several times and my most favorite are the Mocha Brownies with a Crust…so good! Can’t wait to see what you share with us in 2014!!

  14. Dang, girl!! No wonder these are the top 10, they all look divine.

  15. Your all butter pie crust is the best crust I’ve ever made!

  16. It’s so fun to look back on the year! I’m not surprised that Ice cream round up makes the list – I still get traffic from it! Thanks 🙂 I hope 2014 brings even more viral posts for you, Dorothy!

  17. The fact that the PB Baklava is your favorite recipe EVER. Now that is HUGE. I have always loved those pics and I made nutella baklava (and always have wanted to make PB but know you have your recipe and I won’t ever go there) but I can only imagine how good it is! And your PB football, see it everywhere! And the funfetti pin going viral – yeah, I have a funfetti recipe that does pretty well too b/c I think ppl just love the looks of bright colors, but I see that recipe of yours all over the place! Like on every pin board i go to 🙂

  18. That pb baklava has sat in my to-bake pin board for way too long! I also pinned that pumpkin bread, because gooey centers in quick breads are unbeatable! Some favorites from your blog? Oh gosh, well, the zucchini coffeecake was baked no less than a dozen times this summer … I made your gingerbread cinnamon rolls (Different dough, same filling) and everyone flipped for those … oh, and your smores cheesecake brownies were a hit … I also made a variation of your gooey bars and will have to try that funfetti version. It defintely deserves the top spot! Congrats on 2013 and looking forward to 2014! Your blog has been a favorite around here!

  19. Congratulations on such a fabulous year! Cannot wait to see the recipes you share in 2014! Cheers to the new year! 🙂

  20. so many to choose from! YUMMY!

  21. These recipes are all absolutely mouth watering to look at and I know they taste even better than they look, but the crescent roll recipes are a top favorite no matter what!

  22. They all look scrumptious Dorothy! Wishing you and your family a healthy & Happy New Year!

  23. Yum! These all look delicious! I love the Reese’s recipe, I bet it’s amazing! Happy New Year!
