Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

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 »

Coconut Cashew Cookies

Coconut Cashew Cookies

Coconut and cashews aren’t two flavors that I would have put together off the top of my head, but when I ate a piece of a chocolate bar that combined these two elements, I realized that the two make for an excellent flavor combination.

Balsamic Vinegar Fudge Cookies

Vanilla Balsamic

Vinegar pops up in some baked goods as a quick and easy way to add an acid to a recipe, allowing a leavening agent like baking soda to get a little extra lift when added to a batter. Vinegar is rarely used as a flavoring agent and in the recipes that call for it, you can almost never taste it in the finished product. These ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a cookie that will appease both peanut butter lovers and chocolate chip fans: a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. You can certainly throw a handful of chocolate chips into just about any peanut butter cookie dough (or dip the cookies in chocolate!) to get this flavor combination, but peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies have different textures to them and this cookie ...

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons

Macaroons are probably one of the easiest cookies that you can make. Mine are made with just egg whites, sugar and shredded coconut, with a little bit of vanilla extract (or some other flavoring) thrown in for good measure. I’ll make them just about any time that I have an unused bag of coconut lying around, and I’ll also make them when I need an ... Read More »
