Chewy Ginger Cookies

I needed an assortment of cookies for tomorrow’s luncheon, and since I already did lava cookies and brownies. I decided to make the third cookie non-chocolate. This recipe is based on one by Carol Walter, though I made a few changes — my favorite being the cayenne pepper. It adds more zip to the cookies, but […]

peanut butter sandwich cookies

The other day someone asked me if I thought 4 sticks of butter (1 pound) was too much for a recipe. Expecting to find the 4 sticks butter balanced out by 3 or 4 cups of flour and plenty of sugar, I took a look at the recipe, which happened to be this one – […]

ribbon cookies

Renee wanted to know how certain companies “ribboned” things like peanut butter, caramel and chocolate through cookies without the ribbons soaking into the dough. I really didn’t know the answer, but did some experimenting and came up with this. Remember, yesterday I was working […]

Chocolate Coconut Crunchers

Okay, I have one more and that is IT. Finito. No more cookies today. This recipe was a winner in the 1994 Bake-off contest. It was created by a former WAC named Betty, who used her prize money to buy a car which she named “The Chocolate Coconut Cruncher”. Every time I come across this […]

Giant Peanut Butter Cookies Two

Well, here we are, halfway through another Monday (at least in North America). I hope everyone had a good weekend. We stayed around the house, played a lot of Uno and Texas Hold ‘em, took my mom to Luby’s, took down the Christmas tree, watched movies…..all in all, pretty relaxing. Today’s not too frantic either, […]

not quite selmas cookies

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but for the past few days I’ve been completely obsessed with cloning Selma’s cookies. If you’ve never heard of them, they’re these big, fat, unreasonably large cookies loaded with chunks of chocolate and candy. Selma sells them from her website, but you can also buy them in Las Vegas and […]

This recipe was included in a Redbook Magazine interview with Giada De Laurentis. When I first saw it, I wanted to run to the kitchen and try it out, but I was on an airplane so that wasn’t possible. Now I’m home in my messy house with loads of laundry and a batch of these […]
