Chocolate-Filled Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate-Filled Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies, sliced

When I decided to try my hand at this year’s million-dollar Pillsbury recipe, Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies, I tweaked the prize-winning recipe by using a homemade peanut butter cookie dough in place of the refrigerated dough that the winning recipe called for. The change was a great idea and, while I’m sure that the store-bought dough cookies were good, I doubt that they were ... Read More »

From-Scratch Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

From-Scratch Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

The winning recipe from the Pillsbury Bake-Off has been getting a bit of flak because it uses refrigerated cookie dough. As creative and tasty it may be – not to mention a good use a General Mills products, which was a requirement of the competition – for many people it seems that the recipe as it is is just a little too simple to be ...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate and peanut butter have an interesting relationship. The flavors pair well together in just about every application you can think of, from candies and cookies to the simple, decadent late-night-snack of peanut butter and chocolate sandwiches. The interesting thing is how delicate the balance between chocolate and peanut butter really is. It’s easy to use a too-sweet milk chocolate and make sugar the overly ... Read More »

Chewy Brownie Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Chewy Brownie Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies may be the single most popular type of cookie out there, but I’m pretty sure that it is the chocolate element of the cookie that really sells it. So, if a cookie with some chocolate in it is good, one that has even more chocolate is bound to be better, right? Besides, it gets boring if you stick to one type of ... Read More »

Cornflake Cookies

cornflake cookies

Cornflake cookies are just what they sound like: cookies with cornflakes in them. The original source of the recipe, as far as I can tell, is unknown, but the idea of using cereal as an addition to cookies first became popular around the 1930s, so the very first batch was probably baked up around that time. The cookies were more prominent in the 1970s, when ... Read More »

S’more Cookie Bars

s'more bar cookies

It just wouldn’t be right to celebrate National S’mores Day without making a couple of s’mores – or at least using the concept of the s’more as a jumping off point for something equally delicious. This bar cookie is a variation on the classic s’more. Instead of sandwiching marshmallow and chocolate in between two graham crackers, or even between two cookies, the fillings are baked ...

Wheat Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t do too much wheat free/gluten free baking because I don’t have much call to do so. None of my close friends or family members have a gluten intolerance and only a few avoid carbs, so I tend to bake ordinary, wheat-filled breads, cookies and cakes almost exclusively. Note the word “almost”. These cookies are wheat free, made especially for a friend whose new ... Read More »

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Every year I try to make one “different” cookie recipe around the holidays. I’m not saying that I go for something extreme, like chocolate chip bacon cookies, but I do like to have one thing on the Christmas cookie plate that isn’t just chocolate chip oatmeal, gingerbread, shortbread or a sprinkle-laden butter cookie. Bright with orange zest and packed with chewy dried cranberries, these cookies ... Read More »
