Rosemary Butter Cookies

Share

These rosemary butter cookies are delicious. They are delicate, buttery and the rosemary flavor is definitely there, but it’s subtle. They’re not too sweet, but just sweet enough. The cookies crumble in your mouth like a good, buttery shortbread. I tried these cookies for the first time this summer at a neighbor’s house and I [...]

Sugared Pretzel Cookies

Share

These cookies remind me of the Danish butter cookies that come in round tins around the holidays. You usually see them around Christmas time. Those Danish cookies are delectable (one of my son’s vocabulary words this week), and so are these pretzel cookies. I found that they keep for at least 5 days, which is [...]

Chocolate Covered Digestive Biscuits

Share

These cookies remind me of British biscuits called HobNobs by McVities.  They’re delicious, but not incredibly sweet.  When you eat one, you’ll crave a cup of tea.

These were easy to make. All you need is a food processor which processes the dough quickly. I found the dough to be a bit crumbly, but I was able [...]

Chocolate Mint Crackle Cookies

Share

I’m a sucker for chocolate and mint, especially around the holidays. I can honestly say that I’ve never met a chocolate mint confection that I didn’t like. These cookies are easy to make and their taste reminds me of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies which I absolutely love.

The trickiest part of making these cookies is [...]

Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Share

These cookies pack a chocolaty punch!   They’re like brownies in cookie form – soft, chewy and chocolaty.   I made them recently for my girlfriend’s birthday and she and her family gave them rave reviews, especially her son Jack!

They are quite soft when cooked, so next time I might make them a tiny bit smaller, which [...]

M&M's Cookie Bars

Share

 

I made four batches of these in the last couple of days.  One went to a Sunday school party, two batches to school, and some to my niece and nephews in Massachusetts.  Everyone who tried them liked them, probably because they are LOADED with M&M’s.  They’re like a chewy version of a chocolate chip cookie, [...]

Soft Batch Dark Brown Sugar Coconut Oil Cookies

Share

These cookies don’t look particularly spectacular, but I found their taste to be unbelievably delicious. I have never baked cookies using coconut oil before, and I’m now hooked. The oil provides a very subtle coconut flavor that goes very well with the molasses and dark brown sugar.

These cookies are soft. Pleasantly so. I was always [...]

Chewy M&Ms Cookies

Share

I just love cookies made with M&Ms. The recipe that I have been using for years was a little on the sweet side, but I still loved it. This recipe on the other hand is not quite as sweet. The cookie base has much less sugar in it, and consequently you can taste the cookie [...]

I don’t [...]
