Cut Out Cookie Hearts

I didn’t get my holidays mixed up. Fuzz needed something edible and red for a school project and the first thing that came to mind was a batch of heart shaped cut-out cookies. In hindsight, I could have made red circles and called them “Rudolph Noses”, but that might have led to a conversation about […]

It’s a cold and windy day here in Austin, and after taking Lizzie for a long walk I was quite ready for a cup of coffee and one of these cookies. They’re so good! The recipe is a twist on a very old one from Southern Living. It’s a peanut butter cookie stuffed with Dove […]

Oat ‘n’ Toffee Grahams Recipe

oatandtoffeebars

This recipe is adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorites 2010 Cookbook, a supplement to the magazine. It’s a spin-off of one of my old favorites, Graham Cracker Toffee, but with the addition of a baked in buttery oat layer which makes the bars more “cookie-like” than candy and adds texture and flavor.
