Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some home bakers will tell you that the secret to a good cookie is using brown sugar instead of white. I don’t think that this is actually any kind of secret at all, but I will agree that brown sugar can add a unique flavor to a cookie. Brown sugar is basically white sugar that has had some molasses added back to it. This gives ... Read More »

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwiches

 I had a good time with the two-tone milkshakes that I made last week and decided to use the same effect to make these ice cream sandwiches. And by this, I mean that I made them with half vanilla filling and half chocolate. Ice cream sandwiches are really simple to make because you don’t have to actually make anything in order to make them. You ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are, hands down, the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and probably the best I have ever eaten. Granted, I actually make things that I like more than these (sometimes you feel like a muffin, not a cookie), but I have never seen someone not reach for a second cookies straight away. They are fantastic – slightly crispy on the edges ... Read More »

Melt-in-your-Mouth Shortbread

There is something so delicious about shortbread, beyond just the flavor. I think it’s the simplicity that makes it so appealing, that a few basic, simple ingredients can come together into an amazing product. And that description is not over-the-top if you have had good shortbread. I am of the opinion that everyone should know how to make shortbread. It is incredibly easy and you ... Read More »

Chocolate Whole Wheat Honey Cookies

Here’s one more Independence Day-inspired post, though only the icing is red, white and blue. The cookies themselves neither need icing nor have anything to do with the holiday. In fact, though they are entirely dissimilar from gingerbread cookies in terms of their ingredients, they have a taste and texture similar to gingerbread that would make them excellent in the winter, too. The recipe is ... Read More »

Zucchini Cookies

If you have ever experienced and overabundance of courgettes/zucchini/summer squash in either your garden or refrigerator, you are not alone. I don’t try to grow it anymore for two reasons. The first is that it takes over the garden and results in an unbelievable number of squash. The second is that my garden is already overtaken with cucumbers and I don’t have any more room. ...

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Nuts can make a fantastic addition to cookies, cakes and other baked goods. Whether you use pecans, walnuts or almonds, they all add great flavors and a nice crunch to any recipe. Another nut that I am fond of is the macadamia nut, which has an unusually smooth and buttery flavor. I particularly enjoy it when it is paired with white chocolate, as the chocolate ... Read More »

White Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Chips

The first impression upon biting into one of these cookies is that they’re good, but nothing special. There is no dramatic spice or flavor that really sets the apart and, in fact, they have a smooth and subtle flavor to them. Once you’re finished that first cookie, I guarantee you’ll be back for more because, as it turns out, there is something very special about ... Read More »
