Chocolate Sugar Cookie & Nutella Sandwiches

Chocolate Sugar Cookie & Nutella Sandwiches

Apparently it’s Valentine’s Day this Friday. So I made us cookies. Adorable, mini, heart shaped cookies filled with nutella. And by us, I really mean my book club friends that I met with last night. But that’s okay, because these cookies are so simple you […]

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Mint chocolate is one of my favorite combinations EVER. Like mint chocolate chip ice cream? Best flavor out there, as long as it’s the green one. Everyone knows that the white mint chocolate chip ice cream isn’t nearly as good. The peppermint Luna bar? The […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before we talk about these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, let’s talk about our feelings. With the start of the new year, I’ve been thinking about how 2013 was and about what I hope 2014 will be. It’s a lot to think about. I moved to […]

Butter Cookies: Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

Butter Cookies: Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

I love cookies. I think it has something to do with the fact that when I started baking, I baked cookies. I used the little pouches at first so they were semi-homemade but somewhere along the line I transitioned to all homemade. My mom baked […]

Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Please believe me when I say you needed to make these cookies yesterday. But you can make them now and then I’ll forgive you for the delay. I’ve made these cookies 3 times and each time they disappear like lightning. First, I made them when […]

Nutella Stuffed Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nutella Stuffed Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Naming cookies is hard. You don’t want too long of a title but you also don’t want to leave anything out that might pique people’s interest. Like Nutella. That’s an important component of the recipe. Brown butter is also important and definitely different from softened […]

Drömmar: Swedish Dream Cookies

Drömmar: Swedish Dream Cookies

I have another Swedish recipe for you today. These ones are a little different than the lussekatter, pepparkakor, and the chokladbollar. These weren’t a cookie that I was raised baking often or that are attached to a particular holiday. I don’t remember the first time […]

Salted Brown Butter Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Salted Brown Butter Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

It’s funny. With a baking blog, sometimes I have ideas that have been stewing in my head for weeks at a time and then other times I have ideas that I will promptly start to bake about 1 hour after having the initial thought. There’s […]

Salted Caramel Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Salted Caramel Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best 7 words I’ve heard this week: Salted Caramel Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.I wish I was lying when I say that I ate these cookies for dinner last night and for breakfast this morning. 3 cookies for breakfast on a Friday – good […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with Sea Salt

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with Sea Salt

In all the years I have been baking cookies, I had never really baked them as a bar. I don’t know why, but I sure do know that I was missing out all of those years. Maybe it was partial laziness that I baked these […]

Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies

Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies

Big news. I’m moving to Los Angeles on Sunday. Am I all packed? Not at all. Have I started? Sort of. Am I attempting to procrastinate however I can? Yes. It’s not like I’m procrastinating with un-worthwhile things (is that a word? it is now). […]

“Pepparkakor” aka Swedish Gingerbread Cookies

“Pepparkakor” aka Swedish Gingerbread Cookies

This time of year is conflicting. On the one hand, I could live without the cold, the miserable weather, the really short days, the feeling of never being quite warm enough. On the other hand, I love the christmas lights everywhere, I love the holiday […]
