Halfway through making yesterday’s Kiss the Blarney Stone Cookies, I got bored and started shaping the blarney stones into horse heads. I think I like them better. They’re easy to make. Just follow directions for Blarney stones, but lay two slices of dough adjacent to each other. Trim the slice on the right by cutting […]

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

I think I’m done with carrot cake cookies. Really. This is the last batch and then I’m moving on! Unlike the other carrot cookies which were borderline wholesome and could pass for breakfast, this version is 100% dessert. The recipe was posted on a bulletin board called Mouse Buzz where Disney Vacation Club members chat […]

Newman’s Own ginger sandwiches are the best in the ginger category, and for lemon, my vote goes to Lance “Lem-o Lunch” found mostly in hospital cafeterias, gas stations in the south […]

Valentine's Cookie

Update: This is an old recipe which I’d completely forgotten about until I updated my index. I put an “A” in front of the title so it would show up near the top of the list and your wouldn’t miss it. Let me know what you think. If you haven’t noticed by now, I never […]

One more recipe for today. This was posted in the comment section by Kay, who said she received some of these cookies as a holiday gift and fell in love with them. I pasted the recipe below as Kay wrote it, but put “butter” in parenthesis because that’s what I used. I also found that […]
