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 […]

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 […]
