A lot of people put instant pudding mix in their chocolate chip cookies, but did you know it can also be used in oatmeal cookies? As in the chocolate chip variety, the pudding mix helps keep the inside soft and the outside crisp while adding a little flavor. For today’s batch, I used a combination […]

Vodka Cookies

These cookies were a last minute experiment to see what would happen if I put Tito’s Vodka in a batch of white chip cookies. As far as chemistry goes, I’m not sure the vodka really did anything, but it’s always fun to have a secret ingredient, and the cookies were definitely good.   The dough […]

White Lily Cookies

Last week I found a sweet deal on White Lily Flour –  two 5 lb bags for $7.00.  I put in an order and the flour appeared on the doorstep two days later.  Since then I’ve been tearing through the White Lily recipe database trying to determine if White Lily really is worth paying a […]

If you’re not tired of cookies yet (I’m not even close, unfortunately), here’s another recipe for you. It doesn’t quite fall into the healthy category, but with the oats and wheat germ, you could do worse. Plus, these are really, really good! They don’t look like much, but what I liked about the cookies were […]

Jumbo Peanut Butter Cookies with Brickle

I’m suffering from post-holiday malaise this week, so instead of apologizing for yet another peanut butter cookie, I’m just going to say that peanut butter was exactly was exactly what the doctor ordered (even though I do have too many peanut butter cookies here) and that this cookie is special.  Or at least I think […]
