Tuesdays with Dorie: Spiced Pumpkin Jammers

These were a winner! My¬† husband was very skeptical when I said I was putting pumpkin filling in a cookie with roasted seeds on top. These actually turned into Spiced Butternut Squash Jammers because I came home from our CSA on Sunday morning with two butternut squash. The filling is with Butternut squash in place…

Creative Cookie Exchange: Lemon Ricotta Cookies

Cookies for breakfast! Crazy, I know.. but actually, muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls are all baked goods and really don’t vary that much from cake and cookies. Around here, any leftover baked good is typically a good option for breakfast! This cookie has another story though. I come from a very Italian family, and we’re just…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chunkers

All I can say is WOW. These were good. All chocolaty, with a tang from dried cherries and a crunch from the nuts. I think these Chunkers are going to make another appearance this month- scaled down to bite size for the dessert table at my bridal shower! Thank you, Dorie, for another fabulous recipe…

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Cookies

Ok- I’m late. Sorry about that. I had these made Sunday night but somehow posting them never happened and then the week started and we’ve been busy. These fell into a category of baked goods that I try to stay away from: peanut butter aka my epic and total downfall. They were a huge hit…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Crumb-Topped Apple Bars

I made these yesterday, on Tuesday, but ran out of room to post them. We’re full swing into apple season here inMichigan, so it was nice house several local varieties in these. I did make one tiny modification- I added cinnamon to my crumb. These were ever so good! Definitely on the list of apple…

Tuesdays with Dorie REWIND: Coffee Malteds

I’m not a coffee fan- in any form. Hot, cold, flavored- forget it. I did like these cookies though! I used ground Starbucks mocha peppermint coffee and regular malted milk powder. They were a huge hit here! And even better? Start to finish, clean up and out of the oven- in less than an hour….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Crash-O-Cookies

An oatmeal cookie stuffed with dried fruit and chocolate? Who can resist? I used dried cherries in mine upon realizing that I was out of raisins. They ended up more flat than they looked in the book, although I followed the recipe to the T. Oh well… these went over very well and everyone liked…

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter Blossoms

We’re winding down Baked Occasions by Matt Lewis in Baked Sunday Mornings, and this week’s recipe was another holiday cookie- the classic peanut butter blossom. I was expecting to like these since we make a family recipe of a very similar cookie every Christmas season in mass quantities. I somehow managed to pick up a…

#CreativeCookieExchange- Black Pepper Romano Herb Cookies

The word cookie here means “cracker,” or a cookie without sugar. I stuck to a pepper or rather, peppercorns that are stocked in nearly every person’s kitchen- freshly ground black pepper. I wanted to get more exotic, but this came during a busy week of traveling (we got home yesterday) and relied on ingredients already…

Baked Sunday Mornings: Exceedingly Chocolate Crinkles

These little chocolate cookies covered in powdered sugar hide a wonderful surprise- a gooey, brownie like, super chocolatey cookie bite. Needless to say, we’re in love with these, especially warm out of the oven. I wasn’t sure I would be able to get these made as we were traveling and drove from 10am until 5pm…
