White Lily Cookies

Last week I found a sweet deal on White Lily Flour –  two 5 lb bags for $7.00.  I put in an order and the flour appeared on the doorstep two days later.  Since then I’ve been tearing through the White Lily recipe database trying to determine if White Lily really is worth paying a […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies Made With Clarified Butter

My latest cookie obsession has been trying to make homemade cookies similar to Otis Spunkmeyer’s; however, I haven’t come close.  The Otis Spunkmeyer cookies use some kind of margarine, and I haven’t figured out exactly what type of margarine that is since it appears to be trans-fat free and made with just palm oil, water, salt, and […]

Food and Wine Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I have three favorite double chocolate cookie recipes, plus a new one to add to the list. These Chocolate Brownie Cookies were featured in the November issue of Food & Wine, where editor-in-chief, Dana Cowin declared them the most delicious she’s ever had. The magazine describes them as crispy-chewy brownies in cookie form, but mine […]

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

The latest oatmeal cookies went over well, so I made a chocolate version. Like the others, these are made in one bowl and call for oil instead of butter. I also reduced the oil somewhat to lower in fat, and according to Mastercook, these come in at about 34%. If you want to slash more […]

Cottage Cheese Cookies

Cottage cheese is a food I tend to forget about for a while, then notice again, then buy over and over until everyone is tired of it.  And by “everyone” I mean Fuzz, who asked me to stop serving it.  Little did she know H.E..B. had just had a “buy something get free cottage cheese” […]

Chocolate Sparkle Cookies

After trying a recipe for gluten free coconut flour cookies, I decided to revisit another cookie I’ve been making on and off for the past 7 years – a very fudgy, easy, (and pretty) little chocolate cookie covered with sparkling sugar. Based on an a famous recipe from Vancouver’s Thomas Haas Chocolates, I’ve made changes […]

Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Today’s cookie is one I thought up on my morning walk. My mom was coming for a visit, and I wanted to treat her to something special, yet a little more nutritious since she’s been working so hard at her diet. For a while I worried about being a diet wrecker, and at one point […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Peanut Butter Lava Cookies

Today’s recipe is a twist on  Nutella Lava Cookies, only instead of adding toasted hazelnuts, you add a tiny bit of hazelnut extract and a topping of peanut butter and chocolate hazelnut spread.  Since I’ve been trying to use up the new Jif chocolate hazelnut spread I bought a few weeks ago (and love), I […]
