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 »

PB&J Crunch Cookies

I already know a recipe for good some fine peanut butter cookies, but a little variety is never a bad thing so I didn’t hesitate when I spotted this recipe for Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies in Real Simple. While they used chopped peanuts, they also had the interesting inclusion of puffed rice cereal (aka Rice Krispies). The little girls in the photo that accompanied the ... Read More »

Black and White Cookies

“The thing about eating the Black and White cookie, Elaine, is you want to get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate And yet somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie all our problems would be solved.” – Jerry Seinfeld, Seinfeld (The Dinner Party) Black and white cookies are one of ... Read More »

Mexican Chocolate Cookies

Lest you think that I am posting all of Maida Heatter’s recipes, be assured that this one is quite popular. It was published in Saveur magazine earlier this year, too. So I have no qualms about publishing it, again, here. These are icebox cookies, the slice-and-bake variety of cookies that are great to have in your freezer because the dough will keep for weeks and ... Read More »

Craig Claiborne’s Cardamom Cookies

You can’t go wrong with Maida Heatter. I’m sure that there are recipes of hers that are not universally popular (Check out the judging panel’s comments in Cathy’s Mondays with Maida to see if they ever find a bad one), but I have yet to try a recipe that does not work. And, of course, I love just about all of them. Case in point, ... Read More »

Hard Cooked Egg Cookies

I was flipping an old Joy of Cooking (1946 edition – and note that they don’t appear in more current additions) when I spotted Hard Cooked Egg Cookies. My first thought was that they were cookies that would have a dollop of curd or something in the center to resemble hard boiled eggs. They actually involve putting hard boiled eggs through a ricer and into ... Read More »

Homemade Graham Crackers

I’ve been wanting to try homemade graham crackers for some time now. I even went out and bought a cookbook, Retro Desserts by Wayne Harley Brachman, that I knew would have a recipe for it. These grahams use both honey and molasses, so the flavor of molasses isn’t overwhelming and the cookies have a nice sweetness. The cookies turned out to be amazingly tender and ... Read More »

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are good. Very good, as a matter of fact. Though I had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches almost every single day that I took a bag lunch to school (K-12), I did not often have peanut butter cookies. Thinking about the reasons why this may have been, it occurs to me that perhaps the fact that we had peanut butter in the ... Read More »
