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 […]

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Some friends requested a batch of cookies made with white chocolate and macadamia nuts, but I have a lot of recipes and couldn’t decide which version to make. There’s my old favorite version which calls for one egg and 1 3/4 cups flour, and this one one, which is similar but has a second egg […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Molina

I forgot to post this on May 15, which I’m sure all of you know was National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, so here it is. Aside from being a good cookie recipe, it’s an excuse to tell you about a brand of vanilla I recently bought called Molina. My favorite Mexican vanilla of all time […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s been a while since I posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe. In fact lately I’ve been kind of stuck on the New York Times recipe. It’s consistently good, and I usually have bread flour around, so using two kinds of flour (bread and cake) is convenient. I thought I was all set in …

Jif Salted Caramel Hazelnut Flavored

If chocolate and mocha flavored hazelnut spreads weren’t enough, Jif’s introduced a new flavor. It’s called “Salted Caramel Flavored Hazelnut Flavored Spread” and it is fantastic! I obtained mine via a free sample, but I hope to see it in the grocery store soon so I can buy another jar. Especially since it’s the key […]

Today’s cookies were baked in honor of our friend Stephanie, who went to Hawaii and brought us back a giant bag of Macadamia Nut Hershey’s Kisses.  Did you even know that such a Kiss existed?  I had no idea, but from what I’ve read you can purchase them in Hawaii and in a few select […]

White Chip & Vodka Cookies

Vodka Cookies

These cookies were a last minute experiment to see what would happen if I put Tito’s Vodka in a batch of white chip cookies. As far as chemistry goes, I’m not sure the vodka really did anything, but it’s always fun to have a secret ingredient, and the cookies were definitely good.   The dough […]
