Tuesdays with Dorie! Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies

This was my first foray into the "cocktail cookies" section of Dorie's Cookies. And I think these cookies might be related to it's thinner cousin, the cracker. That being said- we were big fans of these. I used the correct type of goat cheese- chèvre (thank you Trader Joe's for having that!). But I couldn't [...]

Tuesdays with Dorie Chocolate Cornflake Haystacks

This is a rare occasion where I'm grateful for being a part of Tuesday's with Dorie. This particular recipe is one I would have skipped almost for certain. Nothing about it appealed to me. My fiancee? A whole different story. He was excited for these. (Anyone else excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 [...]

#CreativeCookieExchange Sunny Side Up Meringues

This is my first month of participating in the #CreativeCookieExchange, and as my fiancee pointed out- "Do you REALLY need another baking group?" But I couldn't resist the freedom this group gives me. All of my other groups follow along a book, and everyone makes the same  two recipes of the month. #CreativeCookieExchange gives my [...]

TWD: Salted Chocolate Caramel Bars

These were spectacularly good, but also incredibly messy and sticky! I slightly overbaked my shortbread, even though it was according to Dorie's instructions (on the low end) and with an oven thermometer in the oven since I found out via a frozen pizza that the electric oven in our new house is a whopping 25-30 [...]

Valentine’s Day Share A Heart Cookies…

...Nope. Not Hearts. I made these the weekend after Valentine's Day, and I just couldn't bring myself to make them into hearts. My various heart cutters have gotten quite a bit of use this month. I opted to use a shape from my cookie cutter tumbler...I'm not even sure what the shape is. Any votes? [...]

TWD: Rose Hibiscus Shortbread Fans

I was sooo thrilled we elected a shortbread this month. I received a new shortbread pan at Christmas and hadn't used it yet, but purposefully didn't pack it in hopes of making a shortbread before we moved and unpacked. Success! Plus, hands down, shortbread is my favorite type of cookie. Unfrosted: I didn't have any [...]

Rewind:Chocolate Creme Sandwich Cookies

Since I joined up with Tuesdays with Dorie in January after getting Dorie's Cookies during the holidays, I took the January Rewind week as an opportunity to make the Chocolate Creme Sandwich cookies that the group made in November 2016. Granted, I made the dough after we put in an 11 hour day working on [...]
