The Sugar Scientist: Cannoli-oli-oli (Daring Bakers) The November 2009 Daring Bakers Challenge was chosen and hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives.

The Sugar Scientist: Cannoli-oli-oli (Daring Bakers)

She chose the Italian Pastry, Cannolo (Cannoli is plural), using the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Allen Rucker; recipes by Michelle Scicolone, as ingredient/direction guides. She added her own modifications/changes, so the recipe is not 100% verbatim from either book. I had mixed feelings about this months DB’s challenge. On one hand, I looooove cannoli (every time we are in an Italian restaurant or pastry shop, my father and I have to share a cannoli). On the other hand, I detest frying in my current kitchen.

But, since I have already missed my maximum number of passes for DB challenges, I forged ahead. As far as the cannoli, they were delicious, but oh-so-rich. Hot cocoa cookies.

Double chocolate cookies with a peppermint patty surprise

A few nights ago I felt a strong urge to make these peppermint-chocolate cookies when I got home from work. I saw the recipe in Rachael Ray's EveryDay magazine and fell intensely in love. And that was before I bit into them. Then. I bit into them.. The gates of heaven opened up, music began to play, I danced in perfect circles, until...I needed another bite. (adapted from: Rachael Ray's EveryDay magazine) In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together on low speed: Strawberry Shortcake Cookies. I have a problem.

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies.

I kind of love strawberries. In a normal day, I will consume: a big cup of Dunkin Donuts strawberry shortcake coffee, wild strawberry-flavored water, a small bowl of fresh strawberries, sometimes frozen, because I'm weird, sometimes with strawberry yogurt, cuz that just seems more healthy, more strawberries snuck throughout the day when no one's looking because I'm convinced I'm starving, & sometimes, if my own wiggling isn't enough, strawberry Jello. So it was only a matter of time really before strawberries found their way into my cookies too. I immediately fell in love with the idea of these and was so, so excited to try them.

Reese’s Chocolate Cookies. Tuesday, December 6, 2011 Reese’s Chocolate Cookies I saw this recipe for Reese’s peanut butter chocolate cookies on King Arthur Flour and immediately wanted to make them.

It uses mini Reese’s peanut butter cups! Everything is so much cuter as minis. The original recipe has peanut butter in the chocolate cookie dough.

Lookie at my Cookies: Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

I am convinced peanut butter and chocolate were made for each other, like Charlie and Claire on LOST–I’m only on Season 2 right now but someone please tell me they have gotten together. I find that a lot of my baked creations involve these two perfect ingredients because they are two of my favorite foods…they actually might be my MOST favorite foods. Needless to say, the combination of flavors when peanut butter and chocolate meet is heavenly. Salty meets sweet, mmm delicious. Lofthouse Style Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies. Lofthouse Style Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies I knew I had to have a great recipe to kick off the 12 Days of Christmas Treats 2011, so I’m starting with one of my absolute favorites!

Lofthouse Style Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

You know those soft Lofthouse sugar cookies that pop up in grocery stores around all the holidays? The kind with colored icing and sprinkles? Hidden Candy Cane Kiss Cookies. One of my favourite holiday cookie recipes that I discovered last year was Recipe Girl’s Candy Cane Kiss Cookies – they look so cute with the red and white swirled Kiss in the middle, and the chopped up Kisses throughout the cookie give it an amazing peppermint flavour.

Hidden Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

This year, I decided to switch them up a little by hiding the Kiss inside the cookie. Though it hides the pretty swirls, it adds an element of surprise when you bite into the cookies and discover a delicious Candy Cane Kiss inside! These are the perfect holiday cookie because they’re nice and small, taste like a festive candy cane, and have a pretty sparkle from rolling them in sugar. Candy Cane Biscotti.

Time for Mint Creme Oreo Stuffed Fudge Cookies. Sweet Pea's Kitchen - StumbleUpon. Homemade Oreos. I almost never repeat recipes. I have soooo many recipes bookmarked and dog eared that it just doesn't make sense to bake the same thing twice.

This recipe is the exception. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. Oh. My. God. If you could take perfection, roll it in a ball, and dip it chocolate, this would be it. Mexican chocolate-chip cookies from LA's ink.sack.
