Chocolate Cutout Cookies make a fun holiday treat any time of the year.
So I am just going to keep it real here and tell you up front that I am NOT good with frosting. I have worked many, many years just to be able to frost a two layer cake without crumbs appearing all over the outside of it. Don’t be surprised, therefore, that these little chocolate cutout cookies look less than beautiful. I. Just. Cannot. Do. Frosting. My daughter and I had a great time making them, though. The whole family didn’t have any trouble eating them, either. Continue reading
S’mores Oatmeal Cookies are filled with chocolate and little marshmallow bits for a special treat.
We love oatmeal cookies in our house. Some of the family likes them with raisins and cinnamon, others enjoy them with butterscotch, but everyone agrees that chocolate is by far their favorite addition. Adding marshmallow bits made them just that much better and turned them into S’mores Oatmeal Cookies! Continue reading
These Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with mini sized chips so there is chocolate in every bite!
There are so many chocolate chip cookie recipes. I think I have at least five here on this blog. No matter how many different ones I try, though, I almost always go back to this one. It’s simply a classic soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie. And, it’s in my recipe notebook marked with over twenty five years of drips, spills and splotches from making the recipes it contains. I know I can grab that book and find all of my favorite, tried and true recipes. Perhaps that, more than anything ensures that I keep making this recipe. I don’t have to turn on the computer or get out a lot of books to find what I am looking for. Continue reading
I have never made a skillet cookie or brownie or cake before. I have seen many all over the internet. I have also seen little mini-skillets sold in stores attached to cookie and brownie mixes. While I have been tempted by these awesome looking treats, I have been reluctant to dig out my cast iron because it involves sitting on the kitchen floor and removing about ten pans that are kept in front of them.

I really need the weather to warm up. My pants are getting tighter with every cold front that moves through the state. Seriously, it is totally Mother Nature’s fault that I keep baking (and eating) delicious chocolate treats. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Continue reading
This is the last cookie recipe of the year. Spritz have long been favorites, though I remember my mom swearing under her breath as she used her old fashioned copper and silver cookie press, trying to get pink and green wreaths and Christmas trees to come out onto the pan in a recognizable fashion.

This is the most amazing recipe. I say that not because there is something special about the ingredients or the taste, no, I say it because it is so huge. In fact, I have halved the original recipe. Perhaps these were called Monster Cookies because it’s a monster, humongous batch. As it is, be prepared to have cookies cooling on every surface of your kitchen if you make these. Continue reading
