Giant Kitchen Sink Cookies

Giant Kitchen Sink Cookies

Most cookie recipes only include a few mix-ins at a time. Chocolate chips and walnuts. Raisins and pecans. White chocolate and apricot. These Giant Kitchen Sink Cookies are not that type of cookie. These cookies are loaded with – as the name suggests – everything but the kitchen sink and that includes oatmeal, dark chocolate chunks, coconut chips, dried apricots, dried cherries and toasted pecans. ...

Chewy Brown Sugar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Chewy Brown Sugar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White chocolate and macadamia nuts are a match made in heaven. While macadamia nuts do go well with other types of chocolate, they have a mild, buttery flavor that is easily overwhelmed by dark chocolate.

These are a new holiday flavor for the brand and try to capture the flavor of a strawberry shortcake by infusing white chocolate with vanilla (for the cake and cream) and strawberry flavors. Surprisingly, the pastel-colored candies nailed the strawberry ... Read More »

Strawberry Shortbread

Strawberry Shortbread

Shortbread is a cookie that never wears out its welcome in my kitchen, probably because I love butter so much.

In addition to showcasing butter, shortbread is also an excellent canvas on which to play with other flavors because the cookies are so simple. In ... Read More »

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Biscotti have always been one of my favorite cookies to keep in my kitchen. They’re fun to eat, easy to make and they have a long shelf-life, so a big batch can go a long way. Almonds are very commonly used in biscotti, but they’re not the only nut that goes well in this style of cookie. These Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti use bright green pistachios ... Read More »
