Crispy Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

It has been a while since I made peanut butter cookies. They’re a great cookie to have in a basic baker’s repertoire because they are almost universally popular (except to those with peanut allergies), even if you’re not a fan of the nuts themselves. Basic peanut butter cookies have a slight chew to them, but you can really do a lot of different things with ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are, hands down, the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and probably the best I have ever eaten. Granted, I actually make things that I like more than these (sometimes you feel like a muffin, not a cookie), but I have never seen someone not reach for a second cookies straight away. They are fantastic – slightly crispy on the edges ... Read More »

Chocolate Whole Wheat Honey Cookies

Here’s one more Independence Day-inspired post, though only the icing is red, white and blue. The cookies themselves neither need icing nor have anything to do with the holiday. In fact, though they are entirely dissimilar from gingerbread cookies in terms of their ingredients, they have a taste and texture similar to gingerbread that would make them excellent in the winter, too. The recipe is ... Read More »

Zucchini Cookies

If you have ever experienced and overabundance of courgettes/zucchini/summer squash in either your garden or refrigerator, you are not alone. I don’t try to grow it anymore for two reasons. The first is that it takes over the garden and results in an unbelievable number of squash. The second is that my garden is already overtaken with cucumbers and I don’t have any more room. ...

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I would not go so far as to say that these are the ultimate peanut butter cookie, but flavor-wise, these would be very, very close. Though I do enjoy the traditional recipe and the crunchiness of the PBJ version, there is nothing to take away from the peanut butter flavor of these cookies. The recipe is from and issue of Everyday Food that I have ... Read More »

Two Tone Chocolate Peanut Butter Stars

I must say that I simply adore the look of these cookies. I believe that the recipe is originally from the Cookie Bible, but since I jotted it down some time ago, it is quite dfficult for me to say precisely. I also found the same original recipe online in at least one place, so it is entirely possible that I saw it somewhere else, ... Read More »

Apricot Ginger Oat Biscuits

I decided to name these biscuits, rather than cookies, because they are based on Anzac biscuits, the crunchy, oaty, eggless Aussie favorite. The biscuits are a favorite of mine, too, as I love anything that is full of oats. Niki has a good, standard recipe, full of oats and dessicated (shredded) coconut. The biscuits I made lack the coconut that is typical of Anzac biscuits ... Read More »

Gingersnaps with Crystallized Ginger

Ginger Cookies with Candied Ginger

Gingersnaps are a favorite holiday cookie. Their spicy sweetness just seems perfect for the Christmas season, when the weather outside is brisk and a little spice always has a way of warming things up. These Gingersnaps with Crystallized Ginger are a classic gingersnap cookie, made with plenty of molasses and spice. I added some chopped, crystallized ginger to give their ginger flavor a little more ... Read More »
