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 […]

Two of our sons had their year-end piano recital yesterday and there was a reception afterwards. I volunteered to bake. I had been looking for an excuse to try a sugar cookie recipe that my sister Gail uses for all her family celebrations and this was my opportunity. The cookies are delicious, and my sister’s […]

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 […]

Sugar Saucers

I am late posting this recipe. I made these sugar cookies for the boys last month for Valentine’s Day. I was inspired to make them by a post I saw by Heather at HT Baking. I fell in love with her photo of the cookies.

This is another one of those recipes where you don’t get […]

Mini Hot Cocoa Cookies

Share

Made these cookies recently and the boys loved them. For days, they took a cookie to school with their lunch. They received a double thumbs-up from all four boys and from many of their friends also.

Truth be told, I thought the cookies were good, not excellent. Not terrible, but not the best things I’ve ever […]

Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms

Share

I had a half a bag of Hershey’s Kisses left over from my Peanut Butter Blossoms that needed to be used so I tried them in this recipe. I LOVE chocolate and peppermint together, and I now prefer these to the Peanut Butter Blossoms. Although those are delicious, in my book, these beat them, hands […]
