Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Drop cookies, made of dough that is casually shaped into a ball and dropped onto a cookie sheet, are not always the most attention-getting cookies. I think that they’re probably the most often made type of cookie, since they are very quick and easy when compared to cut-out cookies, but they don’t hold a candle to the cutouts when it comes to presentation. That being ... Read More »

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Compared to fresh fruits and dried fruits, freeze dried fruits are not really all that flavorful. But they do have some advantages over their juicier counterparts. For instance, they can be stored pretty much indefinitely without spoiling. They can also be worked into recipes where other types of fruit just won’t work out. This property turns out to be a great advantage when you like ... Read More »

Butterscotch Thins

Brown sugar and butter are the two main components of butterscotch, but for some reason, it is very tricky to really nail down the flavor – if it were easy, most chocolate chip cookies would have a strong butterscotch flavor, not just a hint of brown sugar. These cookies, on the other hand, do have a butterscotch flavor. They have a lot of brown sugar ... Read More »

Easter Egg Shortbread Cookies

Easter Egg Shortbread Cookies

One of the best things about Easter is that there is lots of specialty candy available and most of it is on sale. I don’t mind having egg-shaped versions of some of my favorite candies for a couple of weeks after the holiday – or before the holiday, for that matter. I picked up a bag of Reese’s Pieces Eggs, which I like for their ... Read More »

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Sometimes the simplest cookies are the most satisfying – and these sugar cookies certainly fit that description. The cookies are pretty much a classic, easy-to-make sugar cookie that I flavored with a ton of fresh lemon zest. This gives them a bright, clean lemon flavor that reminds me of really good lemonade or lemon meringue pie. Fresh lemon zest is the key to getting a ... Read More »

Oatmeal Cranberry Flaxseed Cookies

Oatmeal Cranberry Flaxseed Cookies

Flaxseed is one of those healthy ingredients that is easy to sneak into foods, increasing the nutritional value by at least a little bit without really changing the taste or texture of what you’re making. The tiny seeds – about the size of sesame seeds – are slightly crunchy and have a very subtle nutty flavor. They’re best used when they have been ground into ... Read More »

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Peanut butter is unquestionably the go-to nut butter in the kitchen. It has a lot of flavor and it’s readily available, usually at a much better price than other nut butters. But as with all things food-related, it’s nice to have some other options and deviate from the standard from time to time. In this case, that means experimenting with some non-peanut butter nut butter ... Read More »

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Biscotti

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Biscotti, plated

Chocolate covered strawberries are a classic treat for Valentine’s day, but strawberries aren’t exactly at their peak in February. It’s possible to find fresh ones, of course, though your options are either going to be fairly expensive hothouse berries or berries that simply don’t have the flavor of those at their peak later in the season. I decided to make these biscotti as a stand ... Read More »
