Little bit of a mouthful there.
Once upon a time, when I was probably no older than in grade school and sadly, not a whole lot shorter than I am today, a friend of a friend of my mother’s presented her with a bag of peanut butter and chocolate candies that my mother and I, chocolate and peanut butter fiends, went ballistic over. Here in this plastic bag (that we kept in the freezer, a history of hiding foods I have no self-control around in the freezer long predates this site) were all of the awesomeness of Reese’s peanut butter cups but, a) larger and b) homemade. We had to have the recipe. No, we really had to have the recipe. We asked.
I made tiny gingerbread houses that are meant to be perched on the edge of a mug of hot chocolate. I had been thinking about those sugar cubes that hook on the rim of a teacup earlier this month, and I was also thinking about 3-D cookies and how they fit together and figured it would be pretty neat to make cookies that hang on the edge of a mug. I thought I was being so brilliant but it only took a few seconds to discover that a flat cookie on the edge of a mug has already been done .
I love peanut butter cookies but I'm pretty picky about them. They need to be soft and extra-peanut buttery and I've had a hard time finding a recipe that was able to deliver that.
Oh how I love a treat that can be whipped up in about 15 minutes. My boys and their buddies couldn’t get enough of these Chewy Oreo Bars we had as an after school snack this week. Sometimes my spontaneous recipe creations turn out to be the most fun, lol!
These are divine. Truly.
I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house. I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly.
These cookies are every bit as delicious as they look. You may have noticed that I have been in a s'mores kick lately.
I am in love with chocolate chip cookies. Some people say they’re boring but give me a plate of still warm chocolate chip cookies and a glass of Cruze Farm milk , a good book and a comfy chair and I’m in my own personal Shangri-La.
I know this seems like a bit of a cop out, seeing as last year I made those lime bars , but the name of these just makes you want one, doesn’t it?
“Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.” — Amos Bronson Alcott I do not often discuss the struggles I go through testing and re-testing recipes because I am not sure how interesting my development process is to you all. Some recipes come together with one try, but those are sadly few and far between.
