Hashtag Pie, Oh My! Chocolate Chip Cookies Instead


I was looking for inspiration to fuel a stint of pie making.  I figured a quick search on Instagram, maybe viewing a lemon meringue pie or an apple pie would get my creative baking juices flowing.  Pie is just pie, right?   After all the definition of pie is a baked dish of fruit, or meat…

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


    I’ve always made my pb cookies with flour (See recent post for Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies).  I came across this recipe in my pile of ‘I should try these recipes’ (doesn’t everyone have one of these piles or drawers or binders….) and gave them a whirl. With only 7 ingredients and one bowl…

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies


Peanut butter cookies are always a hit and these are no exception.  With the holidays upon us this recipe would be a great addition to your cookie tray for the peanut butter lover in your family.

Chocolate Chunk Oat Shortbread


Today’s recipe is for sweet and chocolately shortbread made with the addition of toasted oats.  The toasted oats add nutty flavour and crisps up the texture.  The addition of chopped chocolate just makes the shortbread more delicious. With the holiday season fast approaching and the weather getting colder shortbread seems to fit the bill!  Although…

Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


The other day as I was standing over the counter licking my spoon clean from yet another dip into the Cookie Butter, or as some of you may know it, Speculoos Butter jar, I thought, hmmm, there must be a way to bake this cinnamony sweet goodness into a cookie!  Just like peanut butter or Nutella…

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…

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,…
