Caramel Oatmeal Brownies

Caramel Oatmeal Brownies

I’d like to dedicate this recipe to anyone who thinks that Pillsbury Bake Off recipes are nothing more than prepackaged products rearranged to make variations on a refrigerator biscuit theme. Some of them are – it’s a competition sponsored by General Mills and many name brand, prepackaged products are qualified for use in the entered recipes – but there are just as many recipes that ...

Pistachio Cherry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Pistachio Cherry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

From lemon meringue bars to brownies to s’mores, tray bakes – a blanket term for all kinds of bar cookies and fruit slices – are really very versatile. You can use a crust to create a layered bar or a tart-like fruit treat, or use a single batter to make brownies or blondies. I’m a bit partial to cookie bars in particular for a couple ...

Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling

Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling

If pressed, I would have to say that my favorite type of sandwich cookie is a whoopie pie. The confection is a soft, frosting-filled, single-serving treat that, while it looks like a cookie, is much closer to cake in texture and taste. But I still love the idea of a whoopie pie as a cookie and, to that end, I started to wonder what other ... Read More »

Low Fat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

fresh from the oven

  Cookies are not exactly health food, especially not if they’re really good cookies, as it is the combination of butter and sugar (and sometimes chocolate) that usually makes a cookie great. Cookies are supposed to be indulgent and, like most indulgent things, the low fat, low cal or otherwise “healthy” versions tend not to live up to the original. But this isn’t true of ... Read More »

Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

If you haven’t noticed by now, I reallly, really like oatmeal cookies. Past favorites include Banana Oatmeal Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Maple Pecan Oatmeal Cookies, Coconut Oatmeal Cookies, Heart Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and Oatmeal Cookie Biscotti – and even with a list of recipes that long, I don’t feel the need to stop yet. This recipe was a spur of the moment ... Read More »

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have tried several times in the past to incorporate bananas into cookies, simply because there are not all that many banana flavored cookies out there. Is banana a less popular flavor than I previously imagined? Perhaps not. The reason that I have never posted a banana cookie recipe before is that they haven’t turned out so well. They have been cakey and, in some ... Read More »

Oatmeal Crunch Squares

I realise that I don’t do very many”bar cookies” on baking sheet. Sure, I have brownies and blondies, if you count those, but I think the world of bar cookies has a lot more to offer than the basics. The reason I don’t do more of these is that cookies generally tend to be easier to store and take less time to bake. Somehow, whenever ... Read More »

Maple Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies come from a good combination of fall flavors, though it is nearly the start of winter. They combine maple, cinnamon and pecans with my favorite cookie ingredient: oatmeal. The maple comes from maple syrup. I generally keep grade B on hand, since I prefer its darker flavor and slightly more syrupy consistency to higher grades. The highlights of these cookies are the pecans ... Read More »
