Crispy Brownies: Mix melted butter, cocoa powder, and sugar, and add baking powder, baking soda and flour. Bake it until it looks crispy and has a delicious dark chocolate flavor.

Cookie Bars: These sweet and savory bars can be made with just five ingredients. Mix butter and sugar, then add an egg and your favorite flavorings, such as chocolate chips and nuts.

Fruit Tart: To make a fruit tart, all you need is a package of store-bought puff pastry and some fresh fruit. Layer the puff pastry with a creamy custard and top it with fresh fruit. Place it in the oven and bake.

Meringue Cookies: Both Meringue Cookies and Pavlova require just egg whites and sugar, as well as flavoring extracts, such as vanilla or lemon. They are both light and fluffy, and take only minutes to whip together.
