Heart Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just love it when a dessert or snack has a nutritional benefit that doesn’t make me feel guilty about taking seconds. This pie is a good example, but I will always have a soft spot for cookies. These cookies in particular have a rather heart heathy flair to them: most of the fat in from tahini instead of butter. The recipe is from EatingWell ... Read More »

Mexican Chocolate Cookies

Lest you think that I am posting all of Maida Heatter’s recipes, be assured that this one is quite popular. It was published in Saveur magazine earlier this year, too. So I have no qualms about publishing it, again, here. These are icebox cookies, the slice-and-bake variety of cookies that are great to have in your freezer because the dough will keep for weeks and ... Read More »

Spiced Up Ginger Cookies

Good things come from liquor stores. Besides the liquor, I mean. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario, LCBO, regulates the sale of alcoholic beverages in Ontario, Canada. Here in California, unlike many other places, all you need is a permit to sell liquor and you can purchase it just about any time at the market or corner store. But corner store does not have a ...

Craig Claiborne’s Cardamom Cookies

You can’t go wrong with Maida Heatter. I’m sure that there are recipes of hers that are not universally popular (Check out the judging panel’s comments in Cathy’s Mondays with Maida to see if they ever find a bad one), but I have yet to try a recipe that does not work. And, of course, I love just about all of them. Case in point, ... Read More »

Chocolate-Chunk Caramel Cookies

Could these be the best cookies ever? Possibly. They were very, very popular. Very popular. Actually, there was nothing surprising about these cookies. They were just very tasty. Not earth shattering, but they had a quality that made you reach for a second right after you finished the first. They also left a pleasant caramel-y aftertaste behind. I baked them as a graduation gift for ... Read More »

Hard Cooked Egg Cookies

I was flipping an old Joy of Cooking (1946 edition – and note that they don’t appear in more current additions) when I spotted Hard Cooked Egg Cookies. My first thought was that they were cookies that would have a dollop of curd or something in the center to resemble hard boiled eggs. They actually involve putting hard boiled eggs through a ricer and into ... Read More »

Sugar Cookies

These cookies were sent off in a cookie jar as a house-warming gift to one of my best friends. Do you think she liked them? Everyone likes to get something in the mail. A magazine is nice, a letter is nicer and a package is just about as good as it gets. After doing a little food exchange with Jessica, as I mentioned before, it ... Read More »

Linzer Tart Cookies

Linzer Tart Cookies

Linzer tarts are made with a nut rich dough and have a simple jam filling that adds sweetness and color to the dessert. Almonds and hazelnuts are the most common nuts to use for linzer dough, but just about any nut can be used. The dough also doesn’t need to take a tart form to be enjoyable. Since the dough is so rich, you can ... Read More »
