Some popular Williams-Sonoma recipes include slow-cooker lasagna and chocolate crinkle cookies. These recipes receive a significant amount of positive attention on social media platforms such as Facebook and Pinterest.
To make the lasagna, combine 1 pound of ricotta cheese with parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl. Brown and crumble 2 pounds of skinless sausages with olive oil in the stovetop-safe insert of the slow cooker. Stir in 48 ounces of tomato sauce and 2 cups of water. Allow the mixture to simmer briefly and pour it into a bowl, but leave just enough in the insert to form a thin layer of sauce at the bottom.
Place 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 cup of ricotta, 2 cups of tomato mixture, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese within the insert to create successive layers. Repeat four times. Cook the lasagna in the slow cooker on the low setting for four hours before broiling the insert for eight minutes to achieve a golden brown crust.
To make the cookies, cream 1 stick of butter and 1 1/4 cups of sugar before beating in 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Incorporate a mix of 1 2/3 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Roll the dough into 24 balls. Coat them with confectioners' sugar. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until they are cracked and puffy.
