What are you baking these days? October 2012, part deux [old]

Hi everybody, I have family coming for a few days this week, and so today I made:
- The dough for Alice Medrich's coffee walnut shortbread from Chewy Gooey etc, now residing in waxed paper jammed into an aluminum foil box, because I thought they'd be good as square cookies (I'll top them with a walnut half, not the coffee beans called for, because I think Major Dickason's beans would be a bit overwhelming). To be baked by Wednesday night.
- NM's supernatural brownies, chewy variation with half oil and half butter, and 1/4 c cocoa with flour making up the flour called for. I only ever bake these for 25 mins, and my oven thermostat is pretty accurate -- if you make the recipe, do you bake them for 45 mins as instructed?
- potato bread dough is rising, to be made into pan loaves...
Had guests over for dinner last night, and made Alice Medrich's baked chocolate mousses from "Bittersweet" for dessert, flavored with Grand Marnier and served with whipped cream. I was half in the bag by the time I got around to making them, and even under those circs they were dead easy and superb. New last-minute fancy dessert staple...
