Giant Batch of Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m sorry.  If you’re working on your new year’s resolution of eating healthy, this recipe is not going to make that easy.  I’m not sorry to be sharing one of our favorite recipes of all time however. While I was busy baking all sorts of cookies during the holidays for friends and family, my husband wanted to whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies, some to share with guests and some to indulge ourselves without feeling guilty for sneaking from the other piles of cookies that were really set aside to give away.  My husband only makes chocolate chip cookies in …

Almond Biscotti… Made Smaller

I love traditions, especially during the holiday season.   Every Christmas my baby sister comes over and we bake cookies and we always have a blast.  For the past 5 years we’ve made these almond biscotti.  I actually posted the recipe 5 years ago.   These cookies are THE best biscotti recipe I’ve ever made.  Just to show ya, it’s the only biscotti on my blog because no other recipe has come close to being as good.  They’ve set the bar for biscotti baking.  They are perfect in every way, except the size.  Every time we make them we think that they …

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cup Cookies

With only a few days left until Christmas, I’m in full cookie baking mode. My grocery lists consist of Ramen noodle soup and baking ingredients.  Don’t judge me.  😉  I blame my Ramen noodle obsession on the fact that I still have food aversion from being really sick a couple of weeks ago.  However, I do feel bad my husband asks me what’s for dinner and I have no “real” food to offer him.  It’s all for a good cause… cookies.  And who doesn’t enjoy a little college flashback with Ramen. I always make at least one peanut butter cookie every Christmas.  My peanut butter …

Chocolate Crinkle Kiss Cookies

Cookie baking season has officially begun! Usually I have multiple batches of holiday cookies in the freezer by this point in the season but I’m running a bit behind.  The past month or so has been pretty busy, which is why I haven’t posted in a while.  My baby sister got married last month.  It was a beautiful day. Then my husband and I spent eight glorious days in Turks and Caicos.  We stayed Seven Stars Resort, which is the same place we went to four years ago.  Obviously we loved it enough to return and for good reasons.  The …
