Chocolate Whoopie Pies

As popular as Whoopie Pies seem to be on the Internet, I hardly ever see them at school events or bake sales. We get a lot of cupcakes, brownies and chocolate chip cookies, but Whoopie Pies? Nope. I guess people perceive them as too much work or forget about them altogether.  I usually fall into […]

wondra-cookies

I hadn’t planned on having a sugar cookie baking marathon this week, but I was tired of chocolate and felt like experimenting. Specifically, I wanted to see if using Wondra in cut-out cookies would make a difference.  The answer?  Well, I think it was yes! So what is Wondra?   I remember it as the flour […]

Trefoils Covered in Chocolate

Girl Scout Cookie Season is in full swing here in Austin, and last I heard they’d extended it until March 2.  If you haven’t bought a box yet, I recommend the Samoas and the Trefoils.   I’m also curious to know whether any of you taste a difference in the cookies since Girl Scouts of Central […]

Coffee Flavored Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies

The chocolate covered marshmallow cookie obsession continues!  I kind of wish it would end, but the truth is that I’m not quite tired of eating these and I keep getting ideas for variations.  For instance, yesterday’s was using rounds of cut out Pop Tart as the cookie base and adding instant coffee powder to the […]

Chocolate Marshmallow Cookie Whippet Clone

It would have made more in character had I gone to Quebec with the intention of finding Whippets, but the truth is I’d forgotten about the famous Canadian cookie and was more focused on Montreal bagels. Luckily, when we stopped at a store called Maxi to buy road snacks, I spotted the Whippets. If you’ve […]

Pretzel Caramel Shortbread Bars

After a family taste test of the new Candy Corn Oreos, we’ve concluded they taste like cake batter. As for the Halloween bark, it really was delicious, but I dropped the whole batch on the floor and had to toss it out.  Luckily, it was a small batch.  So moving on… This new recipe also […]

chocolate hazelnut peanut butter sandwich cookies

This weekend’s cookie was an old favorite with a twist! I made a light and sandy chocolate chip peanut butter cookie and filled it with chocolate hazelnut spread and peanut butter. You get a little of everything in one small cookie. Or one large cookie. I couldn’t decide whether I liked the larger version or […]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Hey, the DOW is up today (or at the moment, at least). I’m celebrating with some Whoopie Pies. A better excuse would be that it’s starting to feel like fall, but it isn’t. It’s hot and sunny and we keep having fires. Where is autumn? Pumpkin Whoopie Pies   Save Print …
