Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups #Choctoberfest

Everybody who bakes has a basic peanut butter cookie recipe that you put the Hershey Kiss on top. I also take the same recipe and put it in the mini muffin pans with a peanut butter cup in it.

Mini Chocolate Pecan and Walnut Tarts #Choctoberfest

Orange Sugar Cookies #HotSummerEats

I know, I know…orange sugar cookies sound totally weird. At least, that’s what I thought when I first saw this recipe! But I was looking for a citrus-y recipe to use my brand new juicer and reamer from Casabella (one of our #HotSummerEats sponsors), and this idea popped up on Pinterest… I just couldn’t get […]

Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies for #SecretRecipeClub

This month’s Secret Recipe Baking Club assignment for us is The Harried Cook. I checked out the recipes from Marsha’ s blog this month, since Allison and Jessica had extra-busy months with work.

Chocolate Almond Spritz Cookies – My Happy Accident Cookies

Sometimes the best recipes are happy accidents. One time, for example, I made a pie with iced coffee because I forgot to pick up milk at the store, and now that’s how I make the recipe every time! This recipe came into existence because my boyfriend Jeffrey is super nosy! I was in the cookie […]

Grandma’s Drop Sugar Cookies

Growing up, it was rare to find store bought cookies in our house. It was even more rare to find them at Grandma’s house. Cake, cookies, pies… whatever treats she had on hand were homemade. Cherry pie, frosted brownies, and these drop sugar cookies are some of her staple treats. Grandmas are the best, aren’t they? […]
