Carrot Cake Cookies

Today’s recipe is from an “At the Market” feature in the May Bon Appetit. Along with some info about carrots (they’re a super food, packed with vitamin A, etc. etc.) they discuss where carrots came from, how to pick good ones, and ways to use them. There was a soup that sounded good, a recipe […]

Espresso Fudge Cups with Kahlua Glaze

espresso fudge cups

This recipe was adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks, Food Writers’ Favorite Cookies. It’s called “Espresso Fudge Cups” and it’s by Marlene Sorosky, who in the introduction says she must have made these little chocolate cups 20 times before she got them just right.

Yesterday I bought the ingredients for a raspberry pie with a chocolate wafer crust. Thinking I’d save money by making the chocolate wafers myself, I used a recipe off a blog. The 14 tablespoons of butter was a clue that the cookies would be greasy, but I blindly followed the directions as written, ground up the cookies and […]

malted milk sandwich cookies

I don’t make a lot of sandwich cookies, but my friend Janet sent over a link to a Food and Wine Magazine Cookie and noted it had malt in it. Yum. I figured I’d give it a try. The results seemed okay, but I can’t give the cookies a fair review at …

Sugar Cookies

Pulling a sheet of cookies out of the oven and having to tell a couple of seven year old girls “Sorry ladies, your cookies didn’t turn out” is no fun, and I know because I had to do it this morning after trying out a new sugar cookie recipe – one recommended as melting tender […]

Raspberry Cream Sandwich Cookies

sandwich cookies

Mine were a little on the sweet side, but these raspberry cream sandwich cookies received good reviews on Martha’s website and Recipezaar. I think I would have liked these a bit more had I used an actual vanilla bean as called for, but I checked H.E.B. and the price on one single vanilla bean …
