Almond Toffee Chunk Cookies

by on July 6, 2007 · 4 comments

Today’s cookie is a big, fat, crumbly & crispy-edged variation on an old Bake-Off prize winner called Texan-Sized Almond Crunch Cookies. You can find the original version by putting “Texan-Sized Almond Crunch Cookies” into Google. Oddly enough, I couldn’t find it on Pillsbury’s site, but it is in some of their cookbooks. This is a […]

It’s a dark and rainy day here, so I decided to do something completely out of character – bake cookies! I should probably be doing housework, but since I dislike it intensely and can only do it in spurts, I figured making a recipe with passive chilling time would be okay. This recipe …

Can’t Stop Cookies

I like reaching goals, which is why I keep them simple. Today’s goal was to use up some cornflakes.  Mission accomplished!  I’m not exactly sure where I found this recipe, but it’s a good one. The cookies have a light, crispy texture elegant enough to be served with tea at The Ritz. In fact, I […]

We were supposed to drive to Houston today to meet my aunt and cousin. The two of them had flown in from CT earlier in the week to stay with my grandmother. Unfortunately, my grandmother just called to say both of them were sick and that it we should probably stay home. …

Hazelnut-Pecan Lime Pepper Cookies

by on May 19, 2006 · 1 comment

After making Therese’s recipe, I decided to go ahead and make the Hazelnut Council’s version of the hazelnut lime pepper cookies. That is, the version that uses 2 1/4 cups flour rather than just 1 1/4 cup and which has melted white chips on top. I was low on hazelnuts, so I filled in with […]
