Cookie Madness is a collection of recipes I’ve tried over the years. The original goal was a cookie blog, but these days I post recipes for brownies, cakes, pies, ice cream, cupcakes and other sweets. My new favorite way to bake is gluten-free, so I'd love for you to check out some of the recipes made with flours other than wheat. The fastest way to find recipes is with the search tool, but you can also browse the Recipe Index. Thanks for visiting!

Check out recipes that readers are loving. I'm not always good at updating this, but here goes. The Chicago Public School Cookies and the Subway Copycats are still favorites, with Donna Kelce's or "Mama Kelce's" cookies joining their ranks. You'll know why when you try them. Making Burnt Basque Cheesecake in a loaf pan is popular right now, as is using white cake mix for Red Velvet. I'm excited to see people trying Luby's Butternut Brownie Pie (which is nothing like brownies, btw) and pleased to see the Fluffy Cheesecake recipe working in so many kitchens.

Presidents Day, but they're not as fun as October through December. But here are a few more recommendations anyway.
