Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate! These are a chocolate chip cookie of another color, that’s for sure. Either way, I made these and everyone that tried them went nuts.

You may have noticed that I have been in a s'mores kick lately. First with the cookie dough pops, then with these cookies. I also plan to make additional s'mores themed treats this weekend.

Colorful Spiral Cookies

Impossible! I was naturally drawn to these because of the bright, eye-catching swirl, not to mention the jumbo sprinkles-encrusted edges! If anything, these should be the SB mascot, because they are everything I love. Bright, happy, buttery and delicious. Also versatile! Another thing I love about these is that they are SLICE and BAKE. I won't go much into preparation here, because that's all in the recipe, but here are some pictures to give you an idea of the process.

I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house.

Homemade Girl Scout Cookies

I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly. But, I have many friends with daughters in the Girl Scouts, and the Thin Mints are just so yummy. My 7-year-old didn’t even realize there was any other flavor of Girl Scout cookies than Thin Mints. When one of my friends asked him what kind of cookies he wanted to buy from his daughter he said, “You know. Girl Scout cookies,” with a confused look on his face. One reason that Girl Scout cookies hold such a spell over many people is that they are only available for a limited time. Whether you’re looking to create a healthier version of the cookies that you like so much or you want a way to get your fix during the off-season, try your hand at these recipes for Girl Scout-like cookies. Tagalongs – Baking Bites has a recipe for these peanut butter patty Girl Scout cookies.

Decorate Cookies

It’s one of my favorite times of year again – cookie decorating time! Sure, you can decorate cookies at any time of year (and I do), but there’s something special about decorating holiday cookies. Last year, my very first blog ever was about decorating cookies, so this blog is special in that I feel like I’ve come full circle. It’s been a great year, and I’ve loved every minute of it.

Looking back at that first blog recently in preparation for this blog, I can see many changes. As we prepared for a cookie decorating blog this year, Janet, our designer, said, “You know, that title just doesn’t make sense any more.” Hmmm, what else has changed since last year? Speaking of cars, this year my daughter is old enough to get her learner’s permit.
