Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

PB & Honey cookies spread with peanut butter

Not all peanut butter cookies have a strong peanut flavor to them. In fact, many don’t use all that much peanut butter in them to begin with. I usually make up for this by choosing a brand of peanut butter that I think has a good flavor, or by using crunchy peanut butter to add more obvious nuts to the cookies. This recipe is a ...

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

Melt in your mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

There are all kinds of chocolate cookies out there. Thick cookies, thin cookies, crispy cookies and chewy cookies. I like them all, but every once in a while I come across a chocolate cookie that I like just a little bit more than the others and these Melt-in-Your Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies definitely fall into that category. These cookies are alittle bit unassuming on their ... Read More »

Almond and Toffee Biscotti

Almond and Toffee Biscotti

I tend to save biscotti for wintertime baking because making them, while easy, involves a bit more time working near a hot oven than I usually want to spend on a hot summer day. That being said, one recipe for biscotti makes a lot of cookies – cookies that keep very well, where one batch will last you quite a while – and they go ... Read More »

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 »

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. One is by simply using a good, flavorful brand of peanut butter (always a good idea, actually). Another is to stuff the cookie with a peanut butter filling, or sandwich two cookies together with a ... Read More »

White Chocolate and Pistachio Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are often plain, with just a hint of vanilla and butter flavoring to them. But a sugar cookie can actually be a great background for other flavors, allowing them to really stand out in. The dough worked out particularly well with these White Chocolate and Pistachio Sugar Cookies, where the light cookies set off both the colors and the flavors of the two ... Read More »

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have to admit that pecans are probably my favorite nut to put into a cookie, judging by the fact that I use them more than any other nut, but I can go for anything from walnuts to macadamias to pistachios. This time around, I decided to use hazelnuts to add some crunch to a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Hazelnuts and chocolate make a ... Read More »

Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

Raisins might be the go-to dried fruit for a batch of oatmeal cookies, but I’m fairly certain that other berries aren’t off limits because of it. 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 »
