Ultimate Butterscotch Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies

ButterscotchPretzelCookies

Can we talk about favorite things for a second? One of my absolute most sought after snacks the last couple of weeks have been Pretzel Crisps. I am hooked and can’t get enough! It all started one lovely fall morning whilst strolling through Costco. I usually try to avoid little stops at their various stands with free samples to try. I know better… so I thought. With lunch just around the corner and knowing that I would be home within the next 15 minutes to grab something wholesome, I had just about sidestepped every possible temptation. Thinking I was in the clear I averted my eyes from my targeted checkout lane (which was about 20 feet away from me), when I perceived and spotted Pretzel Crisps. Thanking the lovely gentleman who handed me the tiny cup and taking my first bite, I immediately knew I had made a mistake. I ended up leaving the store without purchasing a bag of my new discovery, but couldn’t stop thinking about them. Needless to say, I returned a week later and purchased a bag of Dark Chocolate Crunch Pretzel Crisps. Don’t you just love the name? Waiting an entire week to make my return, I couldn’t help but dream of recipes that would feature the “reinvented pretzel”. Get ready for an overload of mouthwatering pictures showcasing Ultimate Butterscotch & Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies! [Read more…]

Oreo Cookies

This week must be the week of copycat recipes here at Deliciously Yum! We kicked off the week with Chicken and Gnocchi Soup – inspired by a popular restaurant favorite. Today we’ll take a look at Homemade Oreo Cookies.  Oreos are one of my favorite store-bought cookies. They are perfect for dunking into a tall glass of milk and who doesn’t like to take them cookies apart to get to the luscious cream inside? Do you enjoy the whole cookie or are you a twister like me? I tend to savor my food and always try to make it last as long as possible. Now that you developed a craving for Oreos but might not have any on hand, here’s how you make them. [Read more…]

Caramel Stuffed Cider Cookies

I am such a sucker for all things containing caramel. Caramel seems to make everything better and more scrumptious. It surely enhances the taste of most treats and causes ultimate gooeyness, which is the icing on pretty much all delights. Buttery goodness and a luscious brown hue are irresistible. When I came across these cookies, not a single doubt remained in my mind that I had to give them a try. This is not your average cookie recipe – it contains a special ingredient which I will tell you about in a second. On this beautiful fall day (around these parts anyways), you deserve a cookie that will make your palate sing.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s Cookie Wednesday! I know Wednesday has been dubbed “Hump Day”, but I prefer Cookie Wednesday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the middle of the week than with a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie. The perfect reward to get you through the next couple of days. This recipe is my go to. We’ve been making them ever since I can remember and I never felt the need to look for a different cookie recipe. These are my husband’s favorite… he asks for them at least once a week and is the happiest guy when he spots a fresh batch in the cookie jar. They come out perfect every time. I like my cookies to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If you prefer a slightly crunchy cookie throughout or a chewy cookie without any crispiness whatsoever, this is the recipe for you. You simply adjust the baking time and voila. [Read more…]

Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is finally here. My first blog post. I can’t express what it feels like to finally start sharing and connecting with all of you. I truly hope that you will enjoy this little space of mine where I plan to share our lives, hope to inspire you, and simply share my love of cooking and baking. I hope you hop on for the ride and know that I couldn’t be more grateful to have you stop by to check out Deliciously Yum! I already like you. Seriously. Thank you!

 Now…

Onto these delicious cookies I mentioned above. It was difficult to decide on what I would feature as my very first recipe. When you totally and completely love food and if you are or know someone who can never make up their mind or changes their decision every 5 minutes, you can begin to understand what it felt like to finally come to a decision. Let me tell you how I landed at these fabulous cookies. Sweet treats and baked goods are my very favorite thing to create. I truly love to enjoy decadent desserts and I believe there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying an occasional lip-smacking-stomping-your-feet-on-the-floor indulgence, i.e. not a health food. While you will certainly see truly good for you recipes, both savory and sweet, you will also encounter food purely based on taste and cravings. I’m striving for a good balance, and I believe this cookie recipe represents both sides. Yummy dark chocolate chips, quick-cooking oats, and all your cookie staples make for a chewy cookie.
