Giant Oatmeal Cookies

Today’s recipe is from my friend Megan at Megan’s Sweet Life. Megan, who recently moved to Texas, was kind enough to try my marble cake. I was so grateful she took the time to make it that I baked a batch of her family’s favorite oatmeal cookies. Thanks to Megan, I think my family has […]

Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

If you liked the chewy brownie cookies I posted earlier this week, here’s another version. These are somewhat fudgier and definitely thicker. Corn syrup helps with the texture, so they’re fudgy, but not overly rich. I used 3 ounces of chopped Ghirardelli and loved the results, but I might try making them again with 3 […]

Chewy Chocolate Brownie Cookies

If you’re looking for a fairly easy recipe for dense, chewy, double chocolate chip or white chip cookies, this one always gets good reviews. I can’t pinpoint exactly why people like these cookies so much, but I think it’s the texture. The key to the texture is shortening, which has a higher melting point than […]

Iced Lemon Sugar Cookies

Iced Lemon Cookies

I made these as an excuse to try a new brand of organic butter.  Normally I would have used the store brand or Land o’ Lakes, but the cash register spit out a free coupon for the organic kind, and since butter is more expensive than ever these days, I was pretty happy to redeem […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Molina

I forgot to post this on May 15, which I’m sure all of you know was National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, so here it is. Aside from being a good cookie recipe, it’s an excuse to tell you about a brand of vanilla I recently bought called Molina. My favorite Mexican vanilla of all time […]

Black and White Cookies

I’ve always been kind of a traditionalist with Black and White Cookies. To get that tiny hint of lemon flavor, I use a bit of lemon zest; and for the topping, I tend to stick with the smooth, shiny-setting fondant even though it never tastes as good as buttercream. I thought I was being “authentic”, […]

His birthday was yesterday and he would have been 26.  Lisa made him a carrot cake with “warm spices and no nuts”, which makes […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It’s been a while since I posted a good oatmeal raisin cookie, so here’s one I made today using some Indonesian cassia cinnamon — and a lot of it! I used a whole teaspoon and a half, but the cinnamon wasn’t overpowering at all. Maybe because Indonesian cassia is just not a very strong cinnamon? […]
