Mint Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Don’t underestimate them. They might look a little Plain Jane on the outside but inside they’re stuffed with a mint chocolate truffle that stays rich and creamy long after these cookies are baked. Everyone loves food with a filling, right? Think Boston Cream doughnuts. (Yes, doughnuts. I refuse to jump on the donut train. It’s also […]

Fudgy Mint Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

I was a little bit bitter last Christmas. We started building our new house in the Spring of 2013, and I was actually thinking we might be in our new house by sometime in November. A few months later I decided as long as we were in by December 1, that would be fine. A […]

Triple Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

I have something to tell you, but I feel like you’re not going to believe me. These are the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. Not just the best cookies I’ve created, or the best cookies I’ve made from someone else’s recipe, or the best cookies I’ve ever eaten at a coffee shop or bakery. The […]

Hazelnut White Chocolate Truffle Stuffed Gingersnaps

It just makes sense that this recipe is inspired by my grandma, right? I mean, grandmothers are supposed to be all warmth and sweetness. My grandma is no exception. Growing up, gingersnaps were something we could only find at grandma’s house. For some reason, my mom never baked gingersnaps. My mom was a chocolate chip […]

Samoa Shortbread Bars

I don’t love shortbread. Generally, I just don’t like food that is hard. And shortbread is hard. I’d much rather be eating a gooey, slightly underbaked chocolate/peanut butter/butterscotch/white chocolate chip cookie. Or pretty much anything that is soft, gooey or chewy-in-a-good-way. I guess I get that from my mom. She is one to always knock […]
