Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Fresh pomegranate seeds (actually called arils) are a little too moist to do well in a batch of cookies. Dried pomegranate seeds are a little bit too dry and crunchy. Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate seeds, however, seem to be just right. The dark chocolate brings out some of the fruity notes of the dried pomegranate flesh, while it also serves to temper the crunch of ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

The key to a good peanut butter cookie is to make sure that it has a lot of peanut butter flavor. You can achieve this in a number of ways.

Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

The variety of dried fruit in these cookies makes them taste lighter, maybe even a bit fresher than your average (if still tasty) batch of oatmeal raisin cookies. I purposely did not include any spices, like cinnamon or cardamom, ... Read More »

Fans of the Girl Scout’s Do-si-do cookies, also known as Peanut Butter Sandwiches, will notice some similarities between them and theseĀ  Toffee Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies. They look similar and both have a great peanut butter flavor to them. The signature element of those cookies is their light, crisp texture.

Homemade Girl Scout Cookies: Lemon Coolers

Homemade Girl Scout Cookies: Lemon Coolers

Girl Scout cookies come and go, and not every cookie recipe makes it to the cookie booths every spring. Lemon coolers are a retired Girl Scout cookie that many lemon-lovers have fond memories of. Unfortunately, memories are all that they have because these cookies aren’t offered in this year’s line-up. I liked the bright, lemony flavor of these cookies too and also appreciated the fact ...
