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 »

Nutella Oatmeal Thins

Nutella Oatmeal Thins

I love it when a cookie looks fairly ordinary at first glance and then really “wows” you when you bite into it. These cookies fit that description perfectly. They might not look like much at first glance – thin, with no big chunks of chocolate, nuts or any other add0ins – but they win you over in one bite. They are thin and crispy, with ... Read More »

Oatmeal Streusel Cookies

Oatmeal Streusel Cookies

When I started to experiment with a recipe for Coffee Cake Pancakes – pancakes with a coffee cake-like streusel cooked into them – I needed to separate the streusel from regular coffee cake so that I could include it with the pancakes. I ended up making a big batch of streusel on its own so that it could be mixed into the pancake batter. The ... Read More »

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Mrs Beasley's Chocolate Truffle Cookies

A few weeks ago, a friend shared a batch of Mrs Beasley’s Chocolate Truffle Cookies with me, saying that they were some of the best chocolate cookies she’d tasted in a long time. The cookies were excellent, although a bit messy to eat because of their heavy powdered sugar coating. They were very moist and almost melted in your mouth, and hand an intensely chocolate ...

Orange Cranberry Brownie Cookies

Orange Cranberry Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, innards

These are dark, chewy brownie-like cookies with a bit of a twist. They have dried cranberries and some orange zest mixed into the dough, along with dark chocolate chips. The nice thing about the two fruity additions is that they break up some of the intensity of the chocolate and make the cookies a little bit more interesting. It’s not that the cookies are too ...

Mexican Hot Chocolate Linzer Cookies

Mexican Hot Chocolate Linzer Cookies

A linzer cookie can be very loosely defined as a a sandwich cookie with a windowpane-style top that reveals a (usually jam) filling. This definition is something of a departure from the traditional linzer tart that originally inspired the cookie. Linzertorte, or linzer tart, is a classic Austrian pastry made with a buttery, nut-rich dough and a jam filling, that is usually topped with a ... Read More »

White Chocolate Cherry Cookies

White Chocolate Cherry Cookies

I am always looking for new variations on drop cookies to try out when it comes to baking up batches of holiday cookies. As fun as it is to make gingerbread men and soft cutout cookies, it is a bit time consuming to chill the dough, roll and cut the dough, then decorate the finished cookies. A batch of drop cookies that can be mixed ... Read More »

Mocha Sandwich Cookies

Mocha Sandwich Cookies

Some of the most famous sandwich cookies – like Oreos, for instance – contrast the flavors in their cookies and their fillings, aiming for a balanced cookie. But to deliver the most flavor bite-for-bite, I like to put the same flavors into the sandwiching cookies and the sandwiched filling. These Mocha Sandwich Cookies follow this structure. The sandwiches have chocolate wafers, flavored with some instant ... Read More »
