Nonfat Gingersnaps Recipe. When I lived in San Francisco, I used to stop at Whole Foods occasionally and frequent the salad bar.

Because I’m a big fan of cookies, I’d usually grab a cookie for dessert. It seemed like a sensible solution, at least to me. One day I noticed big, cushy-looking gingersnaps amongst all the other cookies, and picked one out. After finishing my salad, I took the cookie out of the slender brown bag and took a bite. The cookie was spicy, yet soft, but with a good, satisfying chew. Cookies tout chocolat à l'huile de coco.

No question. No hesitation. However, if you offer me a choice between, say, a brownie and a lemon tart? Mmmmmm… lemon might just win that match. I love the sweet tartness of lemon in baked goods.

You know what bugs me? Having to say that I was born in 19-blabla. That 19 – it bugs me. It says that I was born in the last century. When I was about 9-years old, or right around the time that I could understand the concept of numbers, this little old lady told me that she was born in 1896. For that reason, now, when I have to say I was born in 1978, I think that the other person (who always happens to be 23) is thinking, daaaamn! Which brings me to my story about my Chocolate Cake Ice Cream Truffles. Gingersnap Cookies Recipe.

Nutella. Speculoos/ Biscoff. Fraise. OREOS. Buttercream Blondie: Flirt With Desserts » Blog Archive » Biscoff Pretzel M&M Cookies. Sometimes I think it’s a small miracle that Biscoff ever makes its way into the mixing bowl. Seriously, how addicting is this stuff? I can’t even tell you how many times I pick up a jar with every intention of baking with it only for it to end up on a spoon… I finally managed to pry myself away from the jar long enough to make Biscoff pretzel M&M cookies with it this week and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.

It’s one of those recipes where you better get those photos fast because they’re going to be gone in a snap! Aside from a spoon, the other thing I love to pair with Biscoff is pretzels so it only made sense to add some pretzel M&Ms to the mix. You can add any type of M&Ms you wish, but I’m telling you – the salty crunch paired with the cookie butter is where it’s at! The most important thing to remember about these cookies is to make sure that dough is well chilled when they go in the oven to make sure they keep their shape & bake evenly. 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and a Giveaway.
