Mammy Heckert Caramel Icing Cookies

You know those recipes that are handed down in your family from generation to generation? This is one of our family’s oldest recipes! Mammy Heckert (my great grandmother) was known for these homemade caramel icing cookies. So much that our family simply calls these Mammy Heckert Cookies. Actually, the whole town where we grew up knows […]

M&M Cookies

If you know anything about us Boyer women, you know we love a good cookie recipe. Growing up, my mother (Sharon) often had some sort of homemade cookies in the house… even if they were hidden away so we didn’t attempt to eat them all in one sitting. It was actually pretty rare to have store bought cookies […]

Chocolate-Dipped Butterfinger Shortbread Cookies

This month, I’m joining the Fantastical Food Fight, which is run by one of my favorite fellow food blogger, Sara from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Sarah chooses a different theme every month and all the bloggers playing alone create a recipe. You can find out more here. December’s theme is SHORTBREAD, which got me excited, […]

The Ultimate List of Wine and Cookie Pairings

Every year, we make dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies for gifts and parties. Our family is kind of known for it. My mom is the original cookie lady, but Jess and I are definitely cookie ladies in training. Since my mom works at a winery, and we all enjoy wine, we often gift a […]

Gluten-Free Frosted Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies #FBLCookieExchange

I love making piles of Christmas cookies every December! Every year, our blog participates in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, but this years the organizers decided not to host a swap… so our #FoodBloggerLove group on Facebook decided to run of a swap of our own.

Quick and Easy Honey Ginger Cookies

I am a sucker for trying new, interesting ingredients that aren’t too weird. You know, like I don’t want sardines in my cake… but honey granules? Count me in! Also called “honey powder,” these little crystals give you all the flavor of honey without the sticky mess. They’re perfect in tea, but as soon as […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These cookies pack a lot of flavor into a single bite or two. In the past, I made pumpkin spice cookies using pumpkin pudding mix, but I wanted to find a cookie with a more prominent pumpkin flavor. These fit the bill! I used milk chocolate chips […]

Banana Snickerdoodle Cookies (Vegan!)

When our neighbors, Kevin and Pam, moved in next door a few years ago, I took them a plate of cookies to say welcome to the neighborhood. They were super surprised – I guess most people don’t bother doing stuff like that anymore! But my parents always taught me to keep a good relationship with […]

This year, we’re giving out cookie cutters during one event, so I wanted some kind of rolled […]

You can’t go wrong with cake mix cookies. Even if you think you aren’t a good baker, it is really, really hard to mess up these cookies! All you have to do is mix up the cookies and then add 1/2 cup of sprinkles. Kids love ’em… and so do adults! The last time I […]

Mini Red Velvet Cookie Cups

Back in February, I made Itty-Bitty Strawberry Cookie Cups for #FoodBloggerLove, and the recipe was such a hit that I tried out some other flavors too. My husband Jim loves red velvet, so of course mini red velvet cookie cups went over really well in our house. He wished they weren’t so tiny, but that’s […]
