I wanted to teach Emma to ride a bike today, but it rained, so we made tacos instead. After lunch I taught her how to make playlists on iTunes. She may not be able to ride a bike, but she’s a wiz on the computer – just like mommy! That was a joke, see, because daddy’s the computer guy. But I am good at making tacos and putting together Top 10 lists. Now Fuzz has a friend over, and I have sat down to type up a Top 10 Cookie list especially for you. Pies, cakes and muffins are not included, but if they were, I would have listed Troy Cake, miniature cheesecakes (all flavors), Thin Mint pie and that Apple Streusel Coffee Cake. They all tasted good and were made, without issues, by lots of readers. But here are the cookies.
Spring Top 10
#1. Chocolate Cheesecake Bars – These are a quick and easy way to satisfy a craving for chocolate cheesecake.. One project I’d like to do is incorporate Nutella. This recipe is already extremely similar to this one.
#2. Today’s Giant Rocky Road Cookies – Anything with marshmallows gets my attention. These had marshmallows AND chocolate AND are delicious.
#3. Mom and David’s Faves – Pretzels, Caramel, Chocolate and Peanut Butter all come together in an easy to make impressive looking cookie.
#4. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter – Copy Cat cookies from a bakery I’ve never been too. They’re different than other chocolate cookies in that they have kind of a crispy exterior and a soft rich middle. Plus, the dark cocoa adds serious drama. I loved these.
#5. Chips Gone Wild – Much better than I imagined and all the different flavors of chips did not actually cancel each other.
#6. Troy Chocolate Cake – I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted a cake on the Top 10 list, but this cake is unique, delicious and all around special.
#7. Lazy Mom’s Cut-Outs
After I posted this recipe, I got a few emails from (non-lazy) moms saying thank you for such an easy, no-hassle, no-roll cookie. I’m not saying these are the best cookies in the world, but they taste very good, are simple, and decorating them is fun.
#9. No Fail Pan Cookies – These are sweet, but you can tame the sweetness by adding nuts or using semi-sweet chips instead of butterscotch. People have been using whatever they want in these and enjoying the results enough to email thumbs up letters.
#10. Peanut Butter Marbled Cheesecake Brownies – Easy to make, classy and delicious. What is not to like about this recipe?
