Sweet and Salty Cookies


Besides being deliciously sweet and a little salty these cookies are a great way to use up some of those ‘little bits’ of the sweet and salty items hanging around your kitchen. My quick to be devoured cookies contained a Wunderbar, some sea salt Caramel baking bits, salted peanuts and a few dark chocolate chips….

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Biscotti


  Butterfingers in a biscotti you ask?!  Superb I say…with the addition of crunchy peanut butter these cookies are amazing. While my friends were shopping for the essential food items to keep us going for our next few days of vacation in Florida, I headed straight for the baking aisle!  Never mind about fruits and…

Brownie Cookies


I have never met a Brownie I didn’t like.  Whether cakey, chewy, marbled, full of nuts or not, a Brownie is always a great sweet treat option. I’m not sure whether I can honestly say these  brownie cookies surpass the allure of a big Brownie square calling out to be consumed but since these cookies…

Triple Peanut Butter Cookies


These easy to make cookies have everything a peanut butter lover could ask for, peanuts, crunchy peanut butter and just in case you felt they were lacking in the ‘peanutty’ department,  some chopped up peanut butter cups. I doubled the recipe since I knew a single recipe wouldn’t last longer than 2 days in my…

Chocolate chip cookies never go out of style.  The choices are seemingly endless.  Whether you like your cookies chewy, crispy, large, small or with ad-ins like peanuts, oatmeal or chopped chocolate bars, recipes abound. Today I’m sharing an Oatmeal Chocolate Caramel Cookie Pizza recipe.  This makes one large round you cut into wedges once cool….

Classic Lindt Shortbread


This simple shortbread recipe is from the 2016 Lindt Holiday magazine. With only 5 ingredients, which you probably already have on hand, plus some Lindt chocolate, you will be able to bake these up quickly.  I had a 300 gram bar of Lindt Dark chocolate so I used the individual squares to top my shortbread….

Sweet ‘n Salty Cookies


At times I like a little sweet to eat and at times I need the salty hit of a chip or pretzel. Sometimes I need both and I’m never sure which to eat first.  Should I follow the sweet with the salty or start with the salty and finish with the sweet or go sweet,…

Perfect Pumpkin Biscotti


If you’ve been following along for a while you know I’ve been testing pumpkin biscotti recipes.  They abound! My issue with most of them is with the addition of pumpkin puree the cookies become too cakey and loose the ‘crispness’ of a true biscotti.  Pumpkin adds so much moisture and really not a whole lot…

Double-Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti


This recipe is straight from the Ghirardelli site.  Light, crisp and filled with toasted  hazelnuts this biscotti does not disappoint.  Although I’m not usually a fan of chocolate biscotti (did I just say that?!) as I often find the biscotti taste just too one dimensional, the chocolate in this recipe adds another layer of flavour,…

Keep or Weep?!


Friday was a ‘Weep’…if you have been following my blog for any length of time you would know I do watch a bit (or a lot) of reality t.v.  Of late, I have been tuning into the renovation shows, you know Love It or List It, Flip or Flop, that type of thing. They have…

Oatmeal Chocolate Caramel & Macadamia Nut Cookies


These extremely delicious cookies are what you get when you combine macadamia nuts and chocolate caramel drops with some oatmeal and a few other basic cookie ingredients. These beauties started out in my mind as simple oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  After a look in my baking cupboard (you know, the one where items seem to…

Cookie Cravings


Oh me, Oh my, I’m torn on which sweet and delicious recipe to share this week.  There is the Supersized S’More Cookies, made with graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows and chocolate chips I made earlier this week.  On the other hand, there are Cookies and Cream cookies I made last night after spending over $5 on…
