Butter Cookies w/ Eggnogg Cream Cheese Icing for Santa & Gift Guide

Butter Cookies w/ Eggnogg Cream Cheese Icing for Santa & Gift Guide

These butter cookies are Santa-approved because anyone who works hard all night long schlepping gifts around the world could use a hit of brandy, cognac or rum. Included the cookie list should be all Santa’s helpers. How many of you have ever stayed up all night long wrapping gifts and toiled in presents-planning before Christmas morning? We been-there-done-that and by 2 am a platter of cookies laced with rum is a welcomed treat.

We created these butter cookies with eggnog cream cheese frosting (spiked with »

Dark Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies with Holiday Stencils

Dark Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies with Holiday Stencils

For the first time in my life I think I had a chocolate hangover. Maybe it was eating three additional pieces of See’s candy before I went to bed that threw me over the edge. I’m the savory-girl. The girl that hovers over the holiday buffet table where the cheesy dips are displayed and quietly dips my crackers in the pool of yummy calories in between conversations. But to make it clear, I’ll never double-dip. My table side manners are always in-check.

Pumpkin & Flax Seed Good-Dog Treats

Pumpkin & Flax Seed Good-Dog Treats

This was a post which almost didn’t get written. You see, I’ve started to get a bit self conscious about over sharing. Not in that creepy “I feel the need to let everyone know what sort of bathroom rituals I have or funky positions we just tried” kind of over sharing. I’ll leave those to the uninhibited TMI peeps.

I’m talking about not wanting to be one of those who are so overly obsessed that they have to tell, and show, and tweet, and facebook »

Deep Dish Peanut Butter Cookies & Chocolate Ice Cream “Pizookie Style”

Deep Dish Peanut Butter Cookies & Chocolate Ice Cream “Pizookie Style”

It all began with the easiest cookie recipe that I’ve ever seen. 3 ingredients. Mix. Bake. Done. Talk about your minimalistic cookie recipes.

No creaming the butter. No folding or gently mixing. No gradually incorporating the flour. No flour at all actually. Just a “Wham – Bam – Thank you, Mam!” I just had to make these cookies to find out if they were any good or not.

Twenty minutes after pulling out the mixing bowl we were already sampling the first batch. Simply delicious.»

Peanut Butter Cocoa Cookies with Jam & Life Altering Moments

Peanut Butter Cocoa Cookies with Jam & Life Altering Moments

There are only a handful of things you come across in your life which change how you live everyday. An extraordinary person. Discovering a dream job. Having a baby or in our case, bringing home a puppy for the first time. Maybe a life altering moment which sends you in an unforeseen direction.

Or maybe it was something less dramatic. Something you picked up as a hobby or started learning for any number of reasons, but you found yourself deeply drawn into it. It quietly »

Chocolate Chip Cookie Showdown at KA Mixer Corral

Chocolate Chip Cookie Showdown at KA Mixer Corral

High noon at the KA Mixer Corral, and I was entering into a chocolate chip cookie showdown. For years I’ve known the Professional Pastry Chef chocolate chunk cookies to be one of the best cookie recipes, but Diane keeps bringing up how so many people love Alice at SavorySweetLife‘s chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Not that Diane is complaining about my cookies. She loves them. I think… (I know I love them) But she also knows how much we both strive to find the best and there is »

Cookies and Ice Cream – The Bonnie & Clyde Duo

Cookies and Ice Cream – The Bonnie & Clyde Duo

If there is a Bonnie & Clyde of summertime desserts, it would be ice cream and cookies.  Individually, they are a couple of trouble makers that may capture your attention for a moment.  A sexy little mischievous one and a handsome punk. But if you throw them together, unforgettable.

Most all of us feel a little guilty for loving them, yet their allure keeps drawing us in. But what is life without a some guilty pleasure?

We are always searching for our next Bonnie and »

Mystery X Cookies – Oatmeal Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mystery X Cookies – Oatmeal Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

don’t forget the milk

Rummaging through our kitchen’s “don’t know where else to put it” box, we pulled out this mysterious cookie recipe. It was written in a clean gracefully-looping woman’s handwriting with nothing more than very basic ingredients and instructions. Neither of us had a clue who had given it to us, but that’s not about to stop us from trying a new cookie recipe.»

S’mores on a Stick – Marshmallow Pops!

S’mores on a Stick – Marshmallow Pops!

Everyone has been giggling over Sunday’s adorable Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pops.  Although they are super cute (check out Katie’s too), easy to make, and very festive for the Christmas season, they aren’t my favorite.

Even as a kid, I was never a big marshmallow fan. At least in it’s normal solid state.  Marshmallows in the big colorful boxes of sugar, I mean cereal… Pass the cheerios, please. Rocky Road ice cream… Meh.   But marshmallows which had been made molten under the flame or »

Orange Marmalade Cookies with Orange Zest Icing

Orange Marmalade Cookies with Orange Zest Icing

Rarely does a new cookie recipe make it into our abode’s “must make” repertoire. With our household favorites being so loved (like the chocolate chunk, snickerdoodle w/ Viet cinnamon, and oatmeal rum raisin recipes), a new find has to be pretty damn good to pass up baking an old favorite. These orange marmalade cookies with orange zest icing are pretty damn good.»

Chocolate Crack Cookies from David Lebovitz, Ready for Dessert

Warning: These chocolate cookies are crack, just like the title and photo suggests (but it isn’t really the hard stuff in the photo.  Powdered sugar and palm sugar were the prop fill ins.)

Need your chocolate cookie fix?  Here’s a little something for you adapted from the latest book of the dessert masterDavid Lebovitz, “Ready for Dessert“.

David’s chocolate crack cookies are highly addictive chocolate bombs of ecstasy that he originally crafted in the kitchen of Chez Panisse.  He innocently claims the name comes from »

Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips

If you twisted my arm and pinched my nipples to force me to name my absolute favorite cookie as a kid, I would have to say “Chocolate Cookie with Peanut Butter Chips.”

Oh such fudgy, chocolatey sweetness rifled with little peanut butter bombs. I love these cookies, and yet for some reason never make them. I don’t know why. They may be a touch more work than the chocolate chunk cookies or my new favorite, the snickerdoodle, but not excessively so. They are certainly every »

Deep Dish Snickerdoodle a la Mode – Episode 2 of the Pizookie Files

In Episode 1, we introduced the dangerous pleasures of the pizookie, a deep-dish-baked cookie topped with ice cream.  The comments were filled with sweet tooth adoration,  a handful of guilty trembling, and a few expletives in excitement.  We had mentioned the unlimited possibilities of pizookies, and since the response was so ecstatic over the first pizookies post, we thought it would be fun to have a series, The Pizookie Files,  dedicated solely to the brilliance of pizookies.  It shall appear from time to time, here »

Snickerdoodle – Cinnamon Sugar Cookie goodness!

Snickerdoodle – Cinnamon Sugar Cookie goodness!

I had a brilliant idea. It was for another addition to our deep-dish-a-la-mode-cookie repertoire, aka pizookies. Aka Sweet Crack. However, there was one minor problem. I had no snickerdoodle cookie recipe for the dough that I wanted to use.   There were no snickerdoodle recipes in any of my go-to dessert cookbooks, no family recipes, no nada.

So I embarked on a little snickerdoodle cookie cyber research quest to discover the beauty behind these tasty cinnamon sugar cookies. I knew very well of how snickerdoodle »

Deep-dish Cookies a la mode – “Pizookie” Style

Deep-dish Cookies a la mode – “Pizookie” Style

Ok, enough teasing. The twitter followers got the inside scoop with the twitpics, but here’s the ultimate way to serve your favorite soft cookies, like our Chocolate Chunk Cookies ;)  If you are a virgin to this sweet tooth delicacy, let me introduce you to a pizookie.  A pizookie is cookie dough baked directly in a dish (just like Chicago deep dish style pizzas) then while still warm out of the oven, it’s topped with ice cream and immediately devoured.  A deep dish cookie.  Absolutely »

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Nothing brings unadulterated joy like a perfectly baked, warm, soft chocolate chip cookie.  The whole process of making the cookies; the smell of the chocolate, licking the finished beaters, using the edges of my finger to scrape every last bit of dough from the bowl, the scent of the cookies right before they are done in the oven, and finally to breaking into the still warm cookies, chocolate oozing and quickly swooping in with the other hand in order to not lose a drop of »
