Bombshell Blondies ((or Double Chocolate Salted Blondies))

This is one of those recipes that can be called so many things and, although all of the names are pret­ty great, none of them com­pare to the utter amaz­ing­ness of that first bite. Choco­late chunks mixed with a salty, brown sug­ar-rich dense, chewy, moist, cakey — brown­ie-like cook­ie bar is a real threat to your pant’s size. Trust me. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer — ((no bake)) cookies??

I few weeks ago I can across one of the cutest Christ­mas cook­ie ideas I think I have ever seen — when I viewed this Pin of Pin­ter­est. At first glance, I could tell these bright red cook­ie balls were not dipped and with that lit­tle detail, my curios­i­ty was peaked. I pro­ceed­ed to click on the Pin and scroll through a slew of cute pho­tos until I came across the recipe. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Mini Birthday Cookie Sandwiches, with Homemade Birthday Cake Buttercream

Sigh. Gra­cie did it. She went and added anoth­er fin­ger to her age — and to make mat­ters worse, that par­tic­u­lar fin­ger is on her sec­ond hand.  Well, and I didn’t even men­tion the tri­fec­ta of heartache :: she lost her first tooth ((twice, that is a sto­ry for anoth­er day)) too! All this gib­ber­ish is code for Gra­cie turned 6. And with that mile­stone, my heart lost a lit­tle piece of itself.

There must be 2 types of moms, well maybe 3: Con­tin­ue read­ing

Triple Ginger Sugar Cookies with Crystalized Ginger Buttercream 

My plan for this cook­ie recipe was engi­neered as I munched on one of my favorite Trad­er Joe’s trea­sures: the Triple Gin­ger Snap. You may won­der how, out of all of the TJ’s won­ders and con­fec­tions, a gin­ger snap could ever be a favorite. Well, it is real­ly all about it’s supe­ri­or­i­ty over all oth­er snaps. With the tri­fec­ta of gin­gers ((pow­dered, fresh & crys­tal­lized)), your socks are offi­cial­ly blown off a few bites into the first snap; at the very moment you real­ize you are pick­ing bits of sweet, pep­pery can­died gin­ger out of your teeth.

Creme Brûlée Bars

While meal plan­ning for our year­ly fam­i­ly vacay at the lake, I began day­dream­ing about dessert pos­si­bil­i­ties. I knew right off the bat I would be mak­ing these Cheese­cake-filled Choco­late Chip Cook­ie Bars ((and they were SO good)). But I was torn over the next dessert — Table Rock in July needs Con­tin­ue read­ing

Cheesecake-filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I have been search­ing for a yum­my new bar cook­ie recipe and recent­ly came across this recipe on Pin­ter­est and knew I had found “the one”. I love the tra­di­tion­al brown sug­ar & but­ter rich choco­late chip cook­ie. But, I instant­ly became obsessed with the idea of stuff­ing clas­sic cheese­cake between two lay­ers of cook­ie per­fec­tion!? Real­ly, it wasn’t a mat­ter of “IF” I would actu­al­ly make this recipe — but “WHEN”.

Giant Chewy Ginger-Spiced Cookies ((The Recipe of the Year))

Yes, this lit­tle cook­ie recipe is indeed the “Recipe of the Year” (RotY). Not this year, but of 1998. In 1998, Bet­ter Homes and Gar­dens declared this cook­ie to be their RotY in Novem­ber. At the time this cook­ie was crowned with such an hon­or, I was liv­ing in Dal­las, had com­plet­ed my Master’s and was well in the stride of work­ing as an Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­tist.… oh, and I was sin­gle.

Giant Triple Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This cook­ie recipe is one of my all-time favorites. It makes a per­fect­ly giant, fudgy, gooey, bak­ery-style cook­ie. I have found that choco­late choco­late chip cook­ies can be a lit­tle “flat” tast­ing — but my ver­sion of this recipe ((found on Pin­ter­est)) has been proven to deliv­er that deep choco­late punch a cook­ie this beau­ti­ful is expect­ed to have.
