Ultimate Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

If you have ever even considered applying the word “chocoholic” to yourself, you simply must make these cookies. They are the ultimate in chocolate sandwich cookie-ness. They start with fairly thin chocolate cookies that come out of the oven slightly crisp at the edges, due to their thickness (or lack thereof), and have a chewy, chocolaty center. The cookies are rather like thin brownies and ... Read More »

Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you have ever stayed at a Doubletree Hotel, you will probably remember only one thing about your visit: they give guests warm chocolate chip cookies at check in, and pretty much any time you feel like wandering down to the main desk to get one. And the cookies are fantastic: warm, chewy, packed with chocolate chips and nuts (yes, even I liked the nuts ... Read More »

Crispy Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

It has been a while since I made peanut butter cookies. They’re a great cookie to have in a basic baker’s repertoire because they are almost universally popular (except to those with peanut allergies), even if you’re not a fan of the nuts themselves. Basic peanut butter cookies have a slight chew to them, but you can really do a lot of different things with ... Read More »

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

A whoopie pie is a commonly found treat in New England, but is relatively unknown elsewhere, especially on the West Coast. The pies are not really pies at all, as you have probably discerned from the photo above, but are two chocolate cookie/cake discs with a vanilla cream filling sandwiched between them. They’re not like sandwich cookies and not like cream filled cupcakes, but are ... Read More »

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 »
