This recipe is an old favorite of mine. I remember it fondly from my childhood. The recipe was on the back of the butterscotch chips bag. They’re a delicious, chewy oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips.
Three out of four of my boys love these. One claims he doesn’t like butterscotch, so he won’t go near them. […]
This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It’s a two-day process that involves yeast, a fair amount of hands-on time, a stand mixer, and lots of rising.

I made these the other day to bring to a PTA meeting and got great feedback about them. I must warn you that they taste a little boozy. You can definitely taste the bourbon. Not all of it burns off in the baking. I really liked the flavor. This is definitely an adult dessert due […]

I don’t think you […]
Meringues are one of my favorite cookies. I can eat them by the fistful. I love that they’re light and airy and are perfect if you want just a little something to satisfy a sweet-tooth.
This is a recipe that you need to start well in advance of when you need them. It doesn’t take long […]
