Cooking Light’s Fig Bars

by on July 28, 2005 · 6 comments

One very vivid sense memory from my preschool days was tasting a Fig Newton for the first time and discovering the filling was fig — not the chocolate fudge it appeared to be. While I was disappointed the filling was not chocolate, I found flavor of the fig strangely exotic. Naturally, I liked Fig Newtons […]

These are pretty good if you don’t mind the texture of reduced fat cookies. The malt flavor is pretty strong, which is a good thing in my opinion. Chocolate Malted Cookies from Cooking Light 1 cup packed brown sugar 6 tablespoons malted milk powder (such as Carnation) 5 tablespoons butter — softened 3 tablespoons chocolate […]

This recipe was adapted from one by Rebecca Rather, aka “The Pastry Queen”. She likes using jelly with her cookies, but I don’t. I never liked it much on peanut butter sandwiches either, which is not to say I don’t like jelly….I think I like it more with things like pork. Peanut Butter Cookies …

For those of you who haven’t picked up a copy of the August Cooking Light, here’s the recipe for the macaroons. I paraphrased a bit, but I think my abbreviated directions are accurate.

Pecan Pie Chocolate Chunk Cookies

by on July 19, 2005 · 6 comments

Today’s cookie recipe is one I made up for a frozen pie contest. The cookies are big and fat and have little chunks of actual pecan pie which survives the double baking process. You don’t have to buy a whole frozen pie for this recipe. Edwards and Mrs. Smith’s sell their pies in convenient “singles” […]
