lemon cookies

Today’s cookies resulted from an attempt to use up half a box of lemon flavored instant pudding mix. I made a half batch using the 1.7 oz of remaining pudding mix and liked the cookies so much I went to the store for more lemon pudding mix!  I can’t wait to serve these to my […]

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 […]

In her entry, Betty says that a fellow staff member baked these for her son who was assigned war time duty in Vietnam and that the cookies ship well, age well […]

Lemon  Basil Cookies

I mentioned this recipe a few months ago, but at the time, my sage wasn’t doing so well and I didn’t have a basil plant. Now that the herb garden is in full bloom and I have some healthy sage and basil, these cookies were an easy choice. Janice Elder created this recipe for a […]

White Chocolate Chunk Lemon Cookies

by on February 20, 2008 · 8 comments


Today’s cookie is based on a recipe from Wendy Gaynor, who owns a cookie shop in New York City. It’s a variation on her “Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies” recipe, which can be found in this old Times article. But this is the lemon variation, and I got it from Lisa Ernst. Interestingly, Lisa doesn’t love white chocolate, but […]

Red White and Blueberry Cookies

Red White and Blue

I’ve been somewhat fixated on Midge’s cookies this morning. I liked them the way they were, but Carol’s idea of making them “Red White and Blue” inspired me to try them again with a slightly different dough. Here’s the second version. These are slightly less sweet and a bit thicker than the others. The cranberries […]
