\ Pumpkin pie spice is a spice blend made with cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. They’re the primary flavoring agents use in pumpkin pie – hence the name – but the spice combination is so delicious that the blend comes prepackaged so that you can easily add it to just about any baked good you might want to infuse a little fall flavor into.

Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Cookies

Cappuccino Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

A cappuccino is made with roughly half coffee and half milk, so it doesn’t have as strong of coffee flavor as, say, a mug of black coffee. These Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Cookies have a hint of coffee that reminds me of a cappuccino. It is distinct, but not overpowering to the point where you can no longer pick up the other flavors in ... Read More »

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy oatmeal raisin cookies have always been one of my weaknesses. A buttery cookie dough that is jam-packed with nutty oats and plump, juicy raisins is just delicious. That said, I don’t bake them as often as I should because I tend to get a lot of requests for chocolate cookies and chocolate chip cookies. I find that people forget how good a great oatmeal ...

Bite Sized Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut butter cups are one of those candies that has such a great ratio of salty-to-sweet that they are quite addictive. I find this to be particularly true of peanut butter cups made with dark chocolate, where you get the salty, the sweet and a rich, slightly bitter cocoa note. I’m a particular fan of the Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, but as ... Read More »
