Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Bisquick

I bought a box of Bisquick a few months ago so I that I could make some Impossible Pies.  I’d planned on making the taco kind, which is one of the first things I learned to make as a kid, but I never got around to it and ended up just making an Impossible Cheesecake. […]

Salted Caramel Bar Cookies

This is my updated version of an old classic called “Carmelitas”, oatmeal bar cookies with a creamy caramel filling made with caramel ice cream syrup.  The old version calls for caramel syrup mixed with a little flour to thicken it up a bit.   This new version uses a thicker, less-sweet caramel sauce called Smucker’s […]

Granola, Cranberry and Chocolate Chippers

I bought a new brand of granola the other day and found it to be too loose, not very crunchy and a little bland.  Not wanting to throw it away, I used 3 cups of it in these cookies and was pretty happy with the results.  They’re puffy, not overly sweet, have a soft center […]

Chocolate Brownies With Icing

This was my latest creation, […]

double-chocolate-biscotti-thins

I’m still on a thin sliced biscotti kick, so here’s another version for you. This one is double chocolate and uses assorted nuts, white chips and chocolate chips. For the chocolate base, I just added 1 oz of melted unsweetened chocolate. Another change I made was to halve the recipe (the full batch is below) […]

Amish Sugar Cookies

In honor of National Sugar Cookie Day, here’s an old recipe that I’ve really grown to appreciate over the years. It was given to me by a reader named John, whose version was actually double this.  These are crumbly and light and kind of fall apart when you eat them; but they’re not like shortbread […]
