Honey Graham Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Honey Graham Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s fun to experiment a little with cookie recipes, throwing in different ingredients to see if you can improve on a regular chocolate chip cookie with some raisins, peanuts, coconut, white chocolate, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla or any number of other fruits, nuts, spices, etc. The options are endless. And, to that end, I decided to mix some graham crackers, along with chocolate chips, into a ... Read More »

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

As much as I enjoy cookies and milk, I have to admit that I tend to lean towards cookies and coffee. I tend to drink more coffee than milk, although I do put steamed milk into my coffee when I’m making lattes and such, and it’s hard to beat the way that hot coffee can soak into a dunked cookie – especially when chocolate chips ...

Bliss Safe-to-Eat Cookie Dough, reviewed

Bliss Safe-to-Eat Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Even though I could inhale raw cookie dough when I was little – and did, if no one was there to keep an eye on me when I was making chocolate chip cookies. I still eat raw cookie dough, raw eggs and all, but the practice is somewhat frowned upon these days. Raw eggs carry a risk for salmonella, and even though the risk is ... Read More »

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Compared to fresh fruits and dried fruits, freeze dried fruits are not really all that flavorful. But they do have some advantages over their juicier counterparts. For instance, they can be stored pretty much indefinitely without spoiling. They can also be worked into recipes where other types of fruit just won’t work out. This property turns out to be a great advantage when you like ... Read More »

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Mrs Beasley's Chocolate Truffle Cookies

A few weeks ago, a friend shared a batch of Mrs Beasley’s Chocolate Truffle Cookies with me, saying that they were some of the best chocolate cookies she’d tasted in a long time. The cookies were excellent, although a bit messy to eat because of their heavy powdered sugar coating. They were very moist and almost melted in your mouth, and hand an intensely chocolate ...

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve mentioned before that honey is an interesting ingredient to use in baking because it has some unusual properties. Namely, in addition to sweetening up a recipe, it actually attracts and retains moisture. This means that baked goods that use honey will remain nice and moist, where similar baked goods without any honey may get a bit dry or stale. I find that chewy cookies, ... Read More »

Dark Double Chocolate Cookies

I often hear people saying that they want to reduce the sugar in a recipe, or they don’t want something to be “too sweet.” I’ve had cookies that are made with too much sugar and they taste grainy and unpleasant, but I don’t generally want to reduce the sugar in any other recipes. Sugar is a huge contributor to the texture of baked goods, helping ... Read More »

Giant Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies - can't have too much milk

Those gigantic bakery-style chocolate chip cookies that are larger than your hand are always impressive. They promise the same buttery, sugary, chocolaty goodness of a small cookie, but in triplicate. Unfortunately, many of these cookies aren’t as good as the look, as the bakers/bakeries responsible figure that the fact that they can pack more chocolate chips into the cookie makes up for the fact that ...
