wondra-cookies

I hadn’t planned on having a sugar cookie baking marathon this week, but I was tired of chocolate and felt like experimenting. Specifically, I wanted to see if using Wondra in cut-out cookies would make a difference.  The answer?  Well, I think it was yes! So what is Wondra?   I remember it as the flour […]

Black and White Cookies

Here’s a recipe for all the Black & White Cookie lovers out there who don’t have time to bake from scratch.  This one starts with packaged sugar cookie mix, and if you’re skeptical, that’s all the more reason to try it. I wasn’t sure I’d love these since I’ve grown accustom to scratch Black & […]

Trefoils Covered in Chocolate

Girl Scout Cookie Season is in full swing here in Austin, and last I heard they’d extended it until March 2.  If you haven’t bought a box yet, I recommend the Samoas and the Trefoils.   I’m also curious to know whether any of you taste a difference in the cookies since Girl Scouts of Central […]

Black and White Cookies

A few weeks ago Fuzz and I took a quick two night trip to New York to visit friends and do some exploring.  We usually stay Downtown or near Grand Central, but this time we stayed on the Upper West Side, which turned out to be the perfect location.  We were a block from The […]

Jif Salted Caramel Hazelnut Flavored

If chocolate and mocha flavored hazelnut spreads weren’t enough, Jif’s introduced a new flavor. It’s called “Salted Caramel Flavored Hazelnut Flavored Spread” and it is fantastic! I obtained mine via a free sample, but I hope to see it in the grocery store soon so I can buy another jar. Especially since it’s the key […]

Frosted Cupcake Top Cookies

Cupcake Top Cookies

The tops are the best part of a muffin, and in my opinion the same goes for cupcakes.  Of course a good “stalk” is the mark of a great baker, but let’s face it — the top still wins. And it was that line of thinking that that led me to this cookie. It’s a […]

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bar Cookies

Here’s a recipe for anyone who likes chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake. That means everyone, right? Well maybe not, but I have a feeling these will disappear quickly at a party. Not that you have to wait until there’s a party to make them. This recipe is based on an old one from Pillsbury which […]

Chocolate Pecan Meringues

Mergingue Cookies

My sister-in-law mentioned Forgotten Cookies the other day, and now I’m kind of obsessed with them. Plus, I discovered a new addition — Saltines. I saw the technique of adding crushed Saltines to meringue pie crusts recently, and figured it would work in cookies. The crackers perk up the texture  making it crispier and firmer, […]
