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? […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s been a while since I posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe. In fact lately I’ve been kind of stuck on the New York Times recipe. It’s consistently good, and I usually have bread flour around, so using two kinds of flour (bread and cake) is convenient. I thought I was all set in …

Specifically, I wanted to see if using Wondra in cut-out cookies would make a difference.  The answer?  Well, I think it was yes! So what is Wondra?   I remember it as the flour […]

Jif Salted Caramel Hazelnut Flavored

If chocolate and mocha flavored hazelnut spreads weren’t enough, Jif’s introduced a new flavor. It’s called “Salted Caramel Flavored Hazelnut Flavored Spread” and it is fantastic! I obtained mine via a free sample, but I hope to see it in the grocery store soon so I can buy another jar. Especially since it’s the key […]

Cupcake Top Cookies

The tops are the best part of a muffin, and in my opinion the same goes for cupcakes.  Of course a good “stalk” is the mark of a great baker, but let’s face it — the top still wins. And it was that line of thinking that that led me to this cookie. It’s a […]
