Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy oatmeal raisin cookies have always been one of my weaknesses. A buttery cookie dough that is jam-packed with nutty oats and plump, juicy raisins is just delicious. That said, I don’t bake them as often as I should because I tend to get a lot of requests for chocolate cookies and chocolate chip cookies. I find that people forget how good a great oatmeal ...

Bite Sized Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut butter cups are one of those candies that has such a great ratio of salty-to-sweet that they are quite addictive. I find this to be particularly true of peanut butter cups made with dark chocolate, where you get the salty, the sweet and a rich, slightly bitter cocoa note. I’m a particular fan of the Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, but as ... Read More »

Lemon and Lavender Shortbread

Lemon and Lavender Shortbread

You can never go wrong with a buttery batch of shortbread cookies. They’re delicious plain, where you get a generous dose of butter flavor, and they can also be a blank canvas for other flavors. This Lemon and Lavender Shortbread is a great example of how a few simple additions can take a shortbread recipe from something good to something special without even trying. It ... Read More »

PB&J Whoopie Pies

PB&J Whoopie Pie

Soft, cake-like whoopie pies are so much fun to eat that they make me feel like a kid again – even though I didn’t really eat whoopie pies as a kid. That sense comes from the fact that whoopie pies are finger food and are often a bit mess to eat, as filling ineviatably squishes out from one side or the other and gets onto ... Read More »

Thick Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Thick Cut Out Sugar Cookies

Colorfully decorated, thickly-cut sugar cookies are some of the most eye catching cookies in any bakery case. They’re the most popular with kids, but I sometimes find myself caving in and getting one just because they look so appealing. This type of cookie tends to be more about the frosting than the cookie, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have one that actually tastes ... Read More »

Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons

Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons

Macarons are one of my favorite cookies to make. They take a little more time to put together than your average chocolate chip cookie recipe, but they are always well worth the effort – especially when they have a filling that is as good as the one in these Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons. The filling is a surprisingly easy to make dark chocolate and coffee ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

The only thing better than a freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookie is a freshly baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie. This may be called a “pie,” but I am using that term loosely because this is really a giant cookie that is baked in a pie plate. Baking the cookie in this unusual – unusual for a cookie, anyway – pan gives it a ... Read More »

Chocolate-Dipped Chocolate Caramel Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Chocolate Caramel Sandwich Cookies, undipped

Dark chocolate, vanilla bean caramel and buttery chocolate shortbread cookies are the three components that make up these Chocolate-Dipped Chocolate Caramel Sandwich Cookies. They’re definitely a cut above your average cookie, with three components that are incredibly delicious on their own and even better when they’re combined. They do take a little extra effort to put together, but you can’t beat these when you are ... Read More »
