ginger cheesecake cookies

I spent most of yesterday preparing for today’s bake sale, and in the process invented a new cookie! This recipe was designed to use up leftover cream cheese filling from my Ultimate Black Bottom Cupcakes. It’s a soft, semi-cakey (but dense) ginger cookie with a swirl of cheesecake mixture in the center. The original dough […]

An Interesting Gingersnap Recipe

by on December 18, 2009 · 7 comments


I love gingersnaps in all shapes and ways, but when I first saw these I was a little skeptical. They were big, flat, and looked more like a failed batch of molasses cookies than gingersnaps. The surprise was how good they tasted. The recipe has a lot of baking soda, and you might taste …

flu fighter cookies

Last week Therese sent me the perfect recipe for this dark and rainy day – “Flu Fighter Cookies” from Food Network magazine. I hadn’t received my issue at that point, but it arrived yesterday, so with the original copy in hand, I made a batch. According to the magazine, these cookies will help fight off […]

Winter Spice Cookies

Today didn’t get off to a very good start. Fuzz, who has been sick since Friday, had to miss her first ever piano recital. She’d practiced for weeks and we’d even bought her a red & white Santa Claus dress for the show. But thanks to a stomach bug, she’s home in …

Blissful Cranberry Cookies

blissful cranberry cookies

I’ve been tapping my foot waiting for the Starbucks down the street to get a load of cranberry bliss bars, but each time I’ve checked they’ve said to hang tight (or something to that effect). I’ll have to stop by again tomorrow (maybe they got some while I was in Las Vegas?) but in the […]

White Beer Cookies

As promised, here’s a Christmas cookie. I’ve waited almost a year to make these so now I can cross that off my list. Plus, I can also say I’ve tasted white beer. Here are my thoughts — and I want to give these a fair review because I am not a huge fan …
