So, I feel like I owe an apology. I’ve said some things I now regret. Back in January I said some really hurtful things. Now I need to apologize, and I hope you will forgive me, oatmeal raisin cookie. On my Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies post, I said some mean things about the oatmeal raisin cookie. Now I feel bad. I called the oatmeal raisin cookie boring and less successful than other cookies. I hope oatmeal raisin will forgive me.
Each month I have made a dessert featuring peanut butter. I’ve posted about Easy Peanut Butter Fudge, No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, and 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. Far be it for me to stand in the way of you all receiving another peanut butter dessert. This recipe is yet another peanut butter cookie. However, it is far different from the normal cookie. It contains a wonderful ingredient which adds intrigue. If you are looking for a delicious peanut butter cookie with a little hidden pizzazz, you have come to the right place.
You know I’m a dessert fiend. No need to go through this again in great detail. If I had to rank desserts, it would go: cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and then pies (with other desserts thrown into the lineup as well). I wanted to focus on a cookie for this blog. My favorite cookie would have to be chocolate chip. I have made Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies on here before. Both of these recipes rock. So I wanted to add in another chocolate chip cookie recipe that is slightly different and still low in calories.
Sometimes life can be complicated. You know what makes life uncomplicated? Easy recipes! I see no need to over-complicate recipes. I am a definite fan of simple, easy to follow recipes. And I know, some recipes just seem too easy. For example, this post highlights a classic cookie with minimal ingredients. How can you possibly make a delicious cookie with only 3 ingredients? There must be a trick. This has to be a trap, right? There is no need to make recipes harder than they need to be.
In general, I’m a fan of soft cookies over crunchy cookies. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before. Anyway, soft, fluffy cookies are just delightful. I am not generally a fan of fruit in cookies. However, this cookie may be a delicious exception. This cookie is a great mixture of soft, cake-like texture and a nice pop of blueberry. Oh, did I mention it has a cream cheese glaze? There’s that too.
Happy February everyone! Also, happy Super Bowl Sunday! I will be posting some recipes this week from our Super Bowl snackingpalooza, but for now, I wanted to post something different. Have you ever seen recipes that are “copycat” ones, such as: copycat Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, Twinkies, Olive Garden bread sticks, etc.? Well this one post is similar to a copycat post. It’s just slightly different, but the flavors are the exact same. No bake Twix cookies. These taste like a Twix bar, but better.
Have you ever eaten a food and wondered where it had been your whole life? It was almost a food epiphany really. Well, I had that. I was making cookies (yes, I made cookies twice this week don’t judge me) again, only this time was different. As I was making them, I thought they looked and smelled pretty good. Then, I baked them. Then, I ate one. My world exploded into colors I’ve never seen before. These are really, really good. If you’ve never had a cookie like this, you’ll wonder where it has been your whole life.
Merry Christmas Eve! Hard to believe it is that time again. In my quest to make simpler desserts around the holidays, I came across some posts about vanilla wafers being transformed into cakes. You may have seen these across Pinterest or on the boxes of vanilla wafers at the store. They seemed very easy, and this fit the bill of easy desserts to make before Christmas. I’m so glad I gave these a try!
If you’ve read some previous posts, you may think I’m an innovative thinker in the kitchen, way ahead of my time with culinary exploration. Or you think I’m weird. I have tried some interesting recipes, and they came out so delicious (see Chocolate Silken Mousse and Caramel Cheetos). So, I’ve made another interesting recipe this week. It may scare you because it’s a bit out there, but it’s one of the most delicious cookies I have ever had.
I am the soft cookie’s biggest fan. I love soft, chewy cookies. I prefer soft cookies far more often than crunchy cookies. There is just something about biting into a soft cookie and having it melt in your mouth. I have already posted about some other cookies this month, but there is one classic cookie recipe that I have not yet shared. Just in time for the holiday baking season: the best soft sugar cookies.
