Action Vietnam Cookies

I found this recipe in a book called “Food Writer’s Favorite Cookies” where it was submitted by Betty Bernard, Food Editor, Lake Charles Press. 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

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.

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. …

blueberry cookies

It’s Monday. I have a lot of things to do, but I’ll probably just play poker on Facebook. Just kidding. But I feel kind of blah and need to get up and moving, so here’s today’s recipe before I go do something productive. This was sent to me by my new baking friend, Midge, who […]

Cute little Brownies selling cookies

I was a little worried we’d be up to our ears in Girl Scout Cookies and that I’d have to make loads and loads of Ice Box Cakes, Thin Mint Crusted Pies, and Girl Scout Cookie Trifles. Not the case. Fuzz and her pal AK stood in front of Sam’s Wholesale Club Saturday night and […]
