    UPDATE – This Gingerbread Cookie post is from several years ago but I just love the pics, and the memories and everything about it so I just had to repost it.  I also love Gingerbread cookies so there is that too. ************************************************************************ This past weekend I got to watch my niece and nephew for a night and making cookies was on the menu for sure.  Not too long ago I was at World Market and found this great pack of sprinkles that had a little bit of everything from cinnamon dots to metallic sprinkles and everything in between. My little helper is the BEST EVER Anytime I can get my…

  • Salted Brownie Cookies

    Salted Brownie Cookies are everything you need in a cookie that you didn’t even know you needed. Brownies + Cookies = Everything Salted Brownie Cookies are everything you love about brownies but packaged in a cute little cookie.  They are rich, fudgy, chocolate yumminess with the perfect hint of salt and crackle crust.

    Easter is TOMORROW & Cadbury Chocolate Chips Cookies are the perfect treat.  I don’t know about y’all but the great “Quarantine of 2020” has really thrown off my calendar and time frames in general.  I just realized I never posted these amazing cookies for your Easter (at home) Celebrations.  Good thing is they are super quick to make!!

  • Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Chocolate Chip cookies are my down fall and these Brown Sugar ones are a must.  If there is one close by you can count on me to try it.  I am always on the search for the BEST Chocolate Chip cookie, and while I have some favorites (such as these) I am a BIG, BIG fan of this recipe. Can there be too much chocolate? In my opinion there can never be too much chocolate in a cookie.  To make these cookies something super special I used 2 types of chocolate, dark and semi sweet chocolate.  I love the bite of the dark chocolate and the smoothness of the semi…

  • KETO Snickerdoodle

    OK y’all I am obsessed with these cookies… like OBSESSED!  Each bit is a little bit sweet with the perfect bit of cinnamon making these cookies SOOOO GOOD! Keeping it KETO Growing up I remember having snickerdoodles all the time, but as an adult I kinda forgot all about these little jewel of a cookie and then last week I was so sweetly reminded of them.  I have some sweet friends and one of them asked me if I could make him some cookies.  His favorite he has had of mine so far are these Molasses Sandwich Cookies but I asked him what else he loves and he said Snickerdoodle,…

  • Cranberry Pistachio White Chocolate Shortbread

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE shortbread.  Anytime there is a shortbread option on a cookie platter that is the one I go for first.  There is just something so decadent in each buttery bite. So much yummy I am a happy girl with just a plain shortbread (like this one), but for the Holidays I decided to amp it up a bit with a little extra something.  To start with I wanted a little something tart and pretty so I added in one of my favorite holiday tasted, dried cranberries.   Next for a little crunch I went with another favorite, pistachio’s.  I love how they taste and how they look,…

  • Spiced Molasses Sandwich Cookies

    I have a new favorite cookie… Spiced Molasses Sandwich Cookies!  Trust me… you will LOVE them! The perfect blend The cookie itself is quite sweet, especially with the course sugar, but the pumpkin-butter buttercream is the perfect balance.  It is just a little sweet with a good bit of spice making each bite the perfect balance.   If you are planning on just eating the cookies and not making them into sandwich cookies you could leave off the sugar until right when you bring them out of the oven.  That way the sugar is just on the top and not on all sides. Sugar options When I roll cookies in…

  • Pumpkin Butter Cookies (KETO/Low Carb Friendly)

    Happy Fall!!  I cannot believe it is almost October!  To celebrate I made KETO friendly Pumpkin Butter Cookies and they are AMAZING! The perfect Fall cookie One of my biggest fears going on KETO was missing out on the sweets.  To be honest I do not have a big sweet tooth but I do like a little something sweet here and there.  A couple of friends suggested I make “fat bombs” immediately and I did and I love them (I will post a recipe for those soon) but the last few days I have been craving a cookie or cake…specifically pumpkin cookies or cake.  Thankfully I adjusted a favorite recipe…
