Finally. A Christmas cookie. The ONE cookie everyone would notice missing if it didn’t make an appearance on our cookie tray. It’s that well-loved and embodies Christmas for us.

It’s pretty to look at, has plenty of sprinkles, and satisfies young and old alike. Last year I made another version of sugar cookies right before the Christmas season hit. It was one of those times where we just couldn’t wait any longer to enjoy a scrumptious cookie and a birthday celebration seemed like the perfect excuse.

So when I realized that we were in the midst of cookie swap and cookie eating season, I didn’t need to think twice as to which cookie to make. This recipe is as classic as it’s going to get. For all of the cookie purists and sugar cookie lovers out there, you will really enjoy the taste and texture of these.

They definitely taste a lot like Christmas! [Read more…]

Take 5 Cookies

Chocolate Cookies inspired by my most loved candy bar – Take 5.

Things are getting real. Thanksgiving is almost here and I’m preparing by munching on some fabulous cookies. Because no matter how busy things get, there’s always time to take a cookie break. And no holiday would be complete without them.

Right now I am just trying to soak in the excitement before the big day. Since the “eves” of holidays are one of my favorite parts of any special occasion, I already woke up giddy this morning.

One more night and I’ll be able to eat all the stuffing I possibly can. That’s right I am all about that stuffing. What about you? What are you looking forward to the most?

But in the meantime, I’m keeping myself occupied with these cookies. Because if we’re really being honest, nothing beats an amazing cookie. Especially stuffed with caramel, chocolate chunks, pretzel pieces and peanut butter chips.

You know you want one. [Read more…]

And so another fun weekend comes to an end. Between spending most of our time with friends and family all weekend long (it doesn’t get much better than that), my hubby found a couple of hours to put up our Christmas lights outside. We usually try to get that checked off of our list before the first snow fall, but weren’t quick enough this time around. Yep, it happened. Earlier last week we received quite a few inches of the white stuff and our surroundings looked and felt like a winter wonderland.

So naturally I couldn’t help but listen to Christmas tunes all week long. Can you blame me?! Saturday morning was no exception. And while my husband was installing our lights, the noise he made reminded me and our kitties of someone else who likes to make a serious clatter on roofs towards the end of December… and out of the sudden I felt the need to whip up a batch of cookies.

It was absolutely wonderful! [Read more…]

Welcome back, everyone! There is no time for small talk today. We have some cookie business to discuss.

I am sure you’ve come across skillet cookies aka pizookies on the internets over the last couple of months. I’ve been seeing them everywhere and even though I’ve been the proud owner of a cast iron skillet since May of this year, I stayed away from creating any types of dessert with it because I had an inkling it’d be dangerous. But I have to admit that’s the first thing that popped into my head when I purchased mine at a flea market while we were on a family vacation.

I actually couldn’t wait to put it to use once we got back. And boy oh boy, have I been loving it. While I’ve come to use it for pretty much every meal I prepare, I finally caved and made dessert last Saturday. While I am sure there were other options, I just knew I had to go with some kind of skillet cookie.

I don’t think you need an explanation as to why. All I have to say is, go get your stretchy pants on and start making this unbelievable treat! [Read more…]

Is there anything better than cookies that only take a couple of minutes to prepare from start to finish? Not in my world. Well, maybe there is. I have way too many feelings when it comes to chocolate for breakfast. Yes and yes.

I am blaming Trader Joe’s for today’s creation. If you still can’t get enough of pumpkin, TJ’s is your place. It’s the one store I look forward to visiting the most every week. Three words: All. That. Pumpkin.

From Pumpkin Body Butter (best ever), Pumpkin Croutons to Pumpkin Sea Salt Caramels. I love it all. And just when I thought it couldn’t get better, I picked up a box of Pumpkin Spice Granola. I am now unable to leave the house without a taste of it. I wish I was kidding.

It was only a matter of time before I ran out of conventional ways to enjoy said granola and incorporated it into cookies. Mornings never looked and tasted so yummey! [Read more…]
