Kissables Cookies

When I first saw the new Hershey’s Kissables a few months ago, I wanted to eat them by the handful. They are smaller than a regular Hershey’s Kiss and covered in a thick, bright candy shell. They are very similar in principle to an M&M, but larger and rather more substantial. Like M&Ms, the different colors do not have corresponding flavors; they are just there ... Read More »

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I would not go so far as to say that these are the ultimate peanut butter cookie, but flavor-wise, these would be very, very close. Though I do enjoy the traditional recipe and the crunchiness of the PBJ version, there is nothing to take away from the peanut butter flavor of these cookies. The recipe is from and issue of Everyday Food that I have ... Read More »

Cocoa Fudge Cookies

I found this recipe in an older issue of Cooking Light magazine that I happened to be flipping through. Apparently there is a good reason to save all those old issues, because this recipe makes delicious cookies. I know it’s listed on their website and has been included in their Christmas Cookie recipe collection at least once, too, so a subscription isn’t crucial to getting ... Read More »

Black and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Not to be confused with the Black and White cookie of Seinfeld fame, these cookies have chunks of both black and white chocolate in them. And in this case, “black” chocolate means bittersweet (about 63% cacao) to contrast with the sweetness of the white chocolate. Milk chocolate would not be a good match in these. Chopping chocolate is fun when you have a chipper. Chocolate ... Read More »

Daim Cookies

Daim are Swedish candies that have pieces of crunchy caramel enrobed in creamy milk chocolate. Though firm at room temperature, when you heat them the caramel becomes soft and chewy. I bought them at the Swedish market at Ikea, though some specialty foods stores will carry them in the states. If you can find them, it is worth picking up a package because they have ...

Two Tone Chocolate Peanut Butter Stars

I must say that I simply adore the look of these cookies. I believe that the recipe is originally from the Cookie Bible, but since I jotted it down some time ago, it is quite dfficult for me to say precisely. I also found the same original recipe online in at least one place, so it is entirely possible that I saw it somewhere else, ... Read More »

Cranberry Citrus Cornmeal Cookies

I would have been tempted to simply call these “Alliterative Cookies”, were it not for the fact that alliterative does not start with the letter “c”. I like the way the current name just rolls of the tongue, though I will admit that I spent a bit of time switching the order of the words around. This is an adaptation of a recipe found in ...

Chewy Cheesecake Cookies

A while back, I saw a picture of some luscious looking cream cheese cookies at dessert comes first. Shortly thereafter, I received an e-mail request for cheesecake cookies. I knew I had to try. Cream cheese in used in many cookie recipes to enrich and soften a butter dough, but the flavor is subtle and often blends in with the butter. If you are told ... Read More »
