White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Some friends requested a batch of cookies made with white chocolate and macadamia nuts, but I have a lot of recipes and couldn’t decide which version to make. There’s my old favorite version which calls for one egg and 1 3/4 cups flour, and this one one, which is similar but has a second egg […]

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 […]

Fudge Brownies

Last week I posted a recipe for brownies that are delicious, but a little on the thin side. As an experiment, I decided to try decreasing the pan size to make them thicker. It sounds simple, but sometimes changing the pan size throws off the baking time and I wasn’t sure it would work. One […]

Caramel Frosted Cookies

Caramel Drops

These cookies were inspired by some I saw in a little coffee shop on the North Shore of Chicago. I have no idea what recipe they used, but the cookies were puffy, covered with caramel frosting, and had a drizzle of chocolate.    I created my own version yesterday morning, and the family gave them […]

Oatella Cookies

Today’s cookies are from my favorite issue of Food & Wine Magazine, the “Best New Chefs” issue – July 2014. I’m only familiar with Paul Qui, but I enjoyed reading about the others and like to pretend I will someday eat at their restaurants. Until then, there are cookies! These were created by Dagmara Kokonas […]

Fudge Brownies With a Shiny Top

Shiny Top Brownies

I made a batch of brownies this week and got the coveted shiny, crackly, top. Not that there’s anything wrong with dull-topped or frosted brownies, but if pulling out a pan of shiny brownies makes you happy, here’s some interesting info that came with a (different) brownie recipe in the June 2000 issue of Cook’s […]

Totonac's Vanilla

The Buttery Snickerdoodle Recipe from the back of the King Arthur Bread Flour bag has been calling my name ever since I pulled it out to make pizza dough. I love how bread flour improves the texture of certain baked goods. Alton Brown uses it in his famous chocolate chip cookies, Cook’s Illustrated recommends …

Hazelnut Chewies

I’ve been making these cookies for years, but in the past couple of months they’ve become a family favorite. Similar to meringues, but a lot quicker to make since you don’t have to dry them out for a long period in the oven, these chocolaty, nut and egg white cookies can be made with your […]
