Double Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Double Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are very simple cookies and I like to think of them as a blank canvas. Because the ingredients in the cookies are very simple – and the finished cookies typically have a mild flavor of just vanilla, sugar and butter – they’re a great canvas for other flavors. Cardamom, for instance, can make a plain sugar cookie a little more exotic. For these ... Read More »

Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies

Sweetened condensed milk is a versatile ingredient with a great flavor profile. You’ll typically find it sweetening coffee drinks and used in custardy desserts, such as ice cream and key lime pie.

Two Tone Coffee Biscotti

I was always a fan of the Caramel Macchiato Biscotti from Starbucks. They were inexpensive (less than $1) and made a great snack with a cup of coffee. I also really liked their unusual two-tone look.

Tropical Oatmeal Cookies

Tropical Oatmeal Cookies

While I do like a classic chocolate chip cookie, I find it very hard to say no to a good oatmeal cookie. Oatmeal adds a great flavor and texture to cookies, making them tender and adding a slight nuttiness that goes well with any mix-in you might want to include. I often make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and oatmeal raisin cookies are a family favorite, ... Read More »
