Recipe: Mantlebrot

This Jewish staple is basically just almond biscotti but is that such a bad thing? I made this one with plenty of almond slices and dried cranberries but feel free to throw in your favorite dried fruit or nuts.

Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies

These were so good that I absolutely could not believe it. Please run, don’t walk to make these gingerbread cookies. The best part about them was that they were so delicious it was difficult to stop eating them and the second best part was that they not only held their shape when they cooked but…

Recipe: Peanut Butter Cookies

These are your pretty standard peanut butter cookies (with or without add ins is your choice). The great part about this recipe is that it is made of things you have laying around the house, comes together without a mixer, takes maybe 10 minutes to prepare, and it’s basically fool proof. Perfect for last minute…

Recipe: Lemon Thumbprint Cookies

These are a great treat of a cookie combining lemon curd and shortbread. They end up very cute with little cracks in the side when you make the deep well for the curd. If you love your sweet with a little tart this is basically the best cookie for you.  

Recipe: Lime Shortbread

This shortbread is super simple but like good bread it takes time without effort. You really need to chill the dough as long as possible if you want a good crumbly mouth feel and if you want to be able to roll the dough at all. I think it’s worth the wait since it bakes…

Recipe: Sugar Cookies

This is just a run of the mill sugar cookie recipe which I didn’t realize I had never posted one. These cookies came out near perfect but that nice sweet crunch that is sugary and buttery but not too rich or too sweet to be a turn off. The picture is when I dipped them…

Recipe: Gingerbread Center Sugar Cookies

These cookies do take a bit of work but not much more than your average cut out cookie. They have a really pleasing shape and the two different tastes make for a fun cookie experience that’s worth whipping up an extra dough for.

Recipe: Pinwheel Cookies

I made this recipe for a party and just when I thought they weren’t going to look alright they actually came out nice and actually delicious. I know these are all around Pintrest but they actually make pretty good cookies. I overcooked them a bit so don’t make my mistake! Be sure and chill before…

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s no nonsense and they cookies come out light and fluffy with just a little bit of chew to them. Best enjoyed while they’re still a bit warm (you can pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds the next day to get that just out…

Recipe: Graham Crackers

These crackers were so easy to make that I can’t believe I’d never made them before. The recipe calls for several fridge trips for these but I actually only let the dough sit initially in the fridge once for about an hour and they seemed fine (and less sticky than described). Definitely a make again…
