Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies are the perfect cookie to make when you can’t decide what flavor you’re in the mood for. These cookies offer three flavors in one: peanut butter, chocolate chip and spicy dark chocolate. All three doughs work well together, but have distinctive enough appearances and flavors that they make for an unusually good – and unusually good looking – cookie. The vanilla chocolate chip ...

Autumn Cookie Torte

Autumn Cookie Torte

In general, I usually reach for a bag of chocolate chips when I want to add some chocolate to a batch of cookies, brownies or other baked goods. Around the holidays, however, I am often swayed by the seasonally colored bags of M&Ms and similar candies and throw those into recipes to get some fall color along with my chocolate fix. I’ve been seeing leaves ... Read More »

Honey Walnut Cookies

Honey Walnut Cookies

Honey is a sweetener that isn’t used all that much in cookie recipes. You can’t really cream it with butter to create a fluffy base for cookie dough (although honey whipped with butter makes an amazing spread for biscuits), so you can’t simply substitute it for sugar and expect to get the same results. Used properly, honey can be a great sweetener in cookies – ... Read More »

Because of the mint and the lime juice, the cocktail is very refreshing – so refreshing that I’ll even add some mint to my homemade limeade ... Read More »

It is pretty easy to sneak whole wheat flour into a batch of cookies – especially if you’re already dealing with a batch of flavorful oatmeal cookies that will get a little extra boost of nuttiness from the whole grain. These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a great example because you would never know that there is whole grain flour in there with ... Read More »

Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

The last time I ate a Butterfinger candy bar, I was on a road trip. I usually have so many baked goods around the house that I don’t always just pick up candy bars at the store – but there are definitely times when I make exceptions to this general rule because there are some candy bars that I really enjoy indulging in once in ...

Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Butter Cookies

Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Slice and Bake Cookies

A melt-in-your-mouth butter cookie is hard to resist. They are even harder to resist when you incorporate other delicious ingredients into the cookie dough, such as chopped up nuts and chocolate. A good example, of course, is this batch of Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Butter Cookies. These are easy to make slice-and-bake-cookies that are studded with crisp pistachios and rich dark chocolate. The fact that ... Read More »
