Does your mouth start to water when you look at these cookies from the M&T Spotlight page? Because mine definitely does! Caramel, white chocolate, and chopped pecans all in one cookie? Yes, please.

Sometimes a tasty treat is just what you need at the end (or in the middle) of a long day, you feel me? I spotted these Nutella Cookie Bars from Food Fanatic at the Make and Takes Spotlight and have been waiting for an excuse to whip up a batch, maybe I don’t need one! […]

Yes, we’re onto the letter R and how fitting to make something fun using Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for our Holiday ABC series. There a lot of reindeer cookies out there, so we spiced these cookies up a bit by using mini candy canes for peppermint antlers. Supplies for Reindeer Cookies: sugar cookie dough – […]

This month is bound to blow by and my thoughts are 100% occupied by Thanksgiving. We are planning out our Thanksgiving menu, and the aftermath. I know that most people don’t think about the leftovers, but I do. For one thing, I need to have posts ready to go to help others use up their […]

Jam-Filled Pie Crust Cookies

by Lindsey on September 19, 2012

We’ve been baking a lot of pies lately. My youngest daughter came up behind me when I was rolling out pie crust and asked if she could get out the cookie cutters. I remembered being a little girl and loving the pie dough scraps that my mother and grandmother would lay in a pan and […]

My daughter just started first grade (and in case you couldn’t tell, her little sis was so excited, well until she realized she was now alone all day), and while I feel bad that I’ve been talking about it so much, I also feel like so many people can relate, offer advice, support, etc that […]

I scored a fantastic deal on some dried blueberries a few months ago.  I bought a bunch to eat on cereal and salads. But what I really wanted to make with them was cookies.  There’s a cake we like that combines blueberries, lemon and white chocolate together in a magical way. These are the cookie […]

Remember when I made Mango Chocolate Chip Bread? Well, I fell in love with the combo, so I decided to make Mango Chocolate Chip Cookies. Best decision ever! The sweet chunks of mango brighten up the classic chocolate chip cookie. I probably ate an entire dozen of these cookies all by myself. I figured it […]

I love chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies, but my husband is allergic to peanut butter so I usually end up eating the entire batch all by myself. Probably not the best idea, especially since swimsuit season is right around the corner. So instead of the making the traditional no-bake cookies, I replaced the peanut butter […]

by Marie on April 12, 2011
