Salted Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Salted Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

When peanuts are used in cookies, it is usually as peanut butter that is mixed in to the cookie dough. Peanuts are not typically mixed in in the same way that pecans or walnuts are stirred into a batch of cookie dough. But peanuts can make a great addition to a batch of cookies – especially when you’re talking about chocolate chip cookie dough. They ... Read More »

Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I love a good ice cream sandwich, and while you can simply buy a box in the freezer department of the grocery store, you get a lot more options when you make them yourself. I like to bake a batch of cookies and stock my freezer full of homemade ice cream sandwiches instead of buying them. I get better cookies this way (since the cookies ... Read More »

Red, White and Blue Whoopie Pies

Red, White and Blue Whoopie Pies

I think of whoopie pies as a fun dessert, rather than a serious one. It’s not that they can’t be seriously delicious, but since they tend to be single serving treats without fancy decorations that you can eat with your hands, it’s easy to put them in the “fun” category. I love fun desserts because you can do so much with them. You can incorporate ... Read More »

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 »

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. One place you wouldn’t expect to find it is in a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, but that is exactly where it is in these Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies. The sweetened condensed ...

Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Chip Buttercream Filling

Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Chip Buttercream Filling

Whoopie pies may look like sandwich cookies, but their cake-like texture puts them closer to a cupcake than to your average cookie. That doesn’t mean that whoopie pies can’t come in some classic cookie flavors, however, and these Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Chip Buttercream Filling are proof of that. They taste like a chocolate chip cookie – with plenty of butter and vanilla ... Read More »

Two Tone Coffee Biscotti

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. These cookies were recently discontinued by the coffee company in favor of some more traditional looking biscotti, so I decided make up a batch of two tone biscotti myself ... Read More »

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

WW Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are usually a great candidate for using whole wheat flour, even if you’re not usually a big fan of using whole wheat flours in baking. Whole wheat flour has a stronger flavor than regular all purpose flour does, and in some types of cookies, that flavor can sort of take over the cookie and hide the more delicate flavors of butter and ...
