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 …

The holidays are a popular time of the year to make roll out sugar cookies.  It’s fun to cut out all sorts of festive holiday cookie shapes and decorate them to your heart’s content with a variety of colored frosting and sprinkles.  I bet it’s a holiday tradition for many of you to bake cookies with your family.  After all, the holidays are all about spending time with loved ones (and eating as many cookies as possible).

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 …

Snickerdoodles

If cookies were the nifty pictures on a calendar, the snickerdoodle would represent one of the Fall months for sure. I’ve been in a funk with recipe making lately and my husband told me that I was the happiest blogging about cookies.  He’s absolutely right.  So I made cookies. I’m all about cinnamon and other warm spices this time of the year and I instantly thought about snickerdoodles.  They are part sugar cookie, part cinnamon, and all delicious.  I’ve never made a snickerdoodle before.  I know, right?  With all the cookie recipes in my collection, you’d think this would have …

Oatmeal Cookies

Are you ready to meet the best oatmeal cookie ever?  Cue the dramatic music. 😉 I’ve made a variety of oatmeal cookies.  Some recipes were crap and you’ll never see those here (because I won’t waste your time).  Other recipes were great and I still like them for one reason or another.  For example, if you’re looking for a banana oatmeal cookie then the whole wheat banana oatmeal cookies are awesome. However, I had yet to find a good classic oatmeal cookie.  You know, the good old fashion kind with oats and raisins.  No cutting back on butter and sugar.  And …
