• The Santa Chocolate Chip Cookie

    Cookies are a must make for all the time, but especially during the Holiday Season.  Good thing I know which cookie Santa prefers.   A little bit for Everyone … especially Santa For me a good chocolate chip cookie is a little crispy on the edges, soft in the center and loaded with tons of chocolatey goodness.   My families favorite chocolate chip cookies are these, but let me tell you after they have these cookies they might just change their minds. Not only are these cookies crispy and soft but they are also loaded with tons of yummy.  First I used semi-sweet chocolate chunks and then I threw in…

  • Lucky Charm Cookies

    Lucky Charm Cookies are the perfect last minute St Patricks Day treat!  They are not only super fun they are SUPER YUMMY!! Are you a Lucky Charm? I was strolling down eh cereal aisle the other day, remembering all the kid cereal I ate growing up.  Everything from Coco Puffs to Captain Crunch (I liked the one with berries) to Cookie Crunch… and then I saw Lucky Charms.  I LOVED the marshmallows in Lucky Charms so much.   The unicorn was my favorite one, but I was also a big rainbow fan as well.  As I was standing there reminiscing for a second it hit me… let’s put them into…

  • Iced Sugar Cookies

    These Classic Iced Sugar Cookies are a MUST MAKE.  They are super tender, topped with a delicious icing with hints of vanilla bean in each bite and fun sprinkles.  A perfect cookie for any Holiday or Special Occassion. No rolling here One of the things that annoys me about sugar cookies is having to roll them out.  Rolling pins and I don’t have the best relationship.  I tend to roll things too thin, or not thin enough…it just never seems to be right.  With these cookies though there is no rolling…that is one of the reasons why I love these cookies. I also love how tender they are.  Not so…

  • Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

    Sugar Cookies have never been better than these Gluten Free Sugar Cookies!  Yes… Gluten Free and they are AMAZING! The Great Sugar Cookie Debate… Are you a thin & crispy sugar cookie person or a fluffy and chewy sugar cookie person?  For me I like both.   My MeeMaw would make me her sugar cookies every time I would come see her (you can find the recipe here), and they were thin & crispy and SO GOOD!  Like super yummy, I would eat all of them and not share with anyone. On the other hand we had a family friend who would make more of a lofthouse kinda cookie with…

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

    It is pumpkin season and these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect Fall treat. Pumpkin + Chocolate = Must Make I am all about pumpkin anytime but when you throw chocolate to the mix… well I am ALL IN.  I love pumpkin pie spice (especially this Trader Joe’s version) and chocolate together.  I first fell in love with spiced chocolate when I made these Mexican Spiced Brownies several years back. I love how the spices really mesh with the bitterness of the chocolate and enhance each other.  I know that sounds very foodie but try it… you will see what I am talking about. Extra Chocolate… Please Can there…

  • Key Lime Cookies- The Perfect Spring Treat

    Key Lime anything is a must have in the warmer months… and according to the calendar it should start warming up soon.  That means it is time to celebrate that cute little green fruit! Key Lime Cookies for the Win! Pie is what most people, including myself, think of when they hear “key lime” but that is changing.  Don’t get me wrong I love a good pie, but they are also more involved to make.  These cookies literally come together in about 15 minutes and are ready to indulge in within a hour.  No chilling, no wait time to set up… mix, bake, ice and eat.  DONE! Yes… you can…

  • White & Dark Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Valentines is just days away and these delicious White & Dark Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies is a perfect Valentines treat… you could even call them Cupid’s Kiss Cookies if you want.  Load it Up with White & Dark Chocolate (& so much more) I love cookies that have texture and lots of flavor.  These cookies have all that and so much more!!  To make these cookies stand out a bit I used dark chocolate chunks, white chocolate chunks, M&M candies (Valentines variety), Sprinkles and a little extra sea salt.   When I say I am going to load up a cookie I mean it.  To add even more fun you…

  • Monster Cookies – The Halloween Version

    Monster Cookies are my new favorite Halloween treat.  I mean just how adorable are these little yummies?? SPRINKLES & MORE SPRINKLES I am all about a fun sprinkle for any and all occasion.  I have an entire section in my pantry dedicated to my sprinkle obsession.  My niece and nephew love them as well and want to decorate cookies almost every time they come over just so they can use them. For these cookies I went with a variety.  As seen above a traditional halloween blend of orange, green, black, purple and white and then a pink, green and white version as well for the purple cookies.  I also did…
