Ranger Cookies

Ranger Cookies

Often, I like cookies that have one or two main ingredients that stand out. Chocolate chip cookies. Cinnamon-rolled snickerdoodles. Peanut butter cookies. But every once in a while it’s fun to indulge in a cookie that has a little bit of everything in it and these Ranger Cookies are the perfect example of that. I’ve seen these “everything cookies” show up under many names before, ... Read More »

Spicy, Chewy Molasses Cookies

Spicy, Chewy Molasses Cookies

There is something about molasses cookies that gives you a warm, snuggly feeling when you eat them. Part of this comes from the fact that these cookies are usually seasonal treats, baked in warm kitchens when it’s cool outside. Part comes from the chewiness of the cookies, which allows you to slowly savor each bite and take your time as you eat. The rest of ... Read More »

Pumpkin Spice Fudge Cookies

Pumpkin Fudge Cookies

Alice Medrich’s recipe for cocoa fudge cookies is one of my favorite chocolate cookie recipes. Not only are they delicious, but the cookies are also quite low in fat. The secret ingredient in these cookies is yogurt, which adds moisture and tenderness to the cookies without adding in a lot of extra butter or oil. These pumpkin spice fudge cookies are little more than a ... Read More »

Vampire Cookies

Vampire Cookies, bitten

Every year I see lots of Halloween cupcakes and cakes that are rather boring in their decorations. They may have faces of ghosts or vampires painted on top with colored icing, but that really doesn’t do much to set them apart from non-holiday cupcakes. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think it’s fun to go over-the-top where ever possible and really take ... Read More »

Macadamia Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Macadamia Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Regular oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies were very high on the list, too, but lace cookies appealed to me because the ingredient list was very short and ... Read More »

Potato Chip Cookies

Potato Chip Cookies

My day to day lunches when I was in school were varied. There was always a sandwich (pb&j, chicken, turkey, etc.), some kind of juice or fruit and usually something salty, like pretzels or chips. The best days were inevitably the days I got all of my favorites: sandwich, apple, chips and a cookie. With this in mind, I am beginning to think that these ... Read More »

Brownie Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies

Brownie Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies, up close

This weekend, I was gifted a big bag of delicious bite-sized brownies. There were more than I could eat and I started to look for other applications for the brownies. I often mix brownies into batches of frozen yogurt and ice cream. Could they be mixed into a cake? Into cookies? As it turns out, they can be mixed into cookies, as my search for ... Read More »

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve mentioned before that honey is an interesting ingredient to use in baking because it has some unusual properties. Namely, in addition to sweetening up a recipe, it actually attracts and retains moisture. This means that baked goods that use honey will remain nice and moist, where similar baked goods without any honey may get a bit dry or stale. I find that chewy cookies, ... Read More »
