Skinny Peanut Wafers

I have two cookies today. One is from a classy recipe sent to me by my classy friend Karen and the other is a delicious hack job that uses up old Halloween candy. I’m going to post Karen’s first. Karen’s recipe is actually from Maida Heatter and it was published in the September 2000 …

white chocolate raspberry cookies

I can’t type much right now because I’m supposed to be making dinner, but here’s one last cookie recipe for today. This recipe is less complicated than the previous one and should satisfy a raspberry white chocolate craving. The catch is, you have to have some fresh raspberries on hand. We usually don’t, but today […]

This recipe was included in a Redbook Magazine interview with Giada De Laurentis. When I first saw it, I wanted to run to the kitchen and try it out, but I was on an airplane so that wasn’t possible. Now I’m home in my messy house with loads of laundry and a batch of these […]

But these sounded good and since I needed to use up the rest of a big can of roasted, salted macadamias from Costco, I made a batch this morning. […]

Mexican Wedding Cookies

A child with many names is a child loved many times. I don’t know where I read this quote originally, but it stuck in my head because my daughter has so many nicknames. I thought of it again this morning as I made these Mexican Wedding cakes, aka Snowballs, aka Kourambiedes, aka Russian Tea Cakes. […]

I couldn’t settle on a recipe this morning and almost gave up…. …until I found my King Arthur Whole Grain Baking Book. I’d put it away months ago and had forgotten about the many things I’d bookmarked and planned on trying. One in particular, was Salted Cashew-Crunch Cookies. I had exactly 8 ounces of salted […]

Here’s the second recipe for today. I’m not on a crazy cookie baking binge, I just need more dough for the school function tomorrow. The rest of the cookies will be baked in the morning, but I did have to make a few test cookies and thanks to the combination of cashews and coconut, these […]
