Thumbprint Cookies

A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend of mine visited for the weekend, and while she was here, she commented that I should make thumbprint cookies with my homemade strawberry jam. For those of you who are unfamiliar with thumbprint cookies, they are shortbread cookies with a little well in the middle, filled with … Continue reading

Cookies ‘n Cream Cupcakes

My older son, Jack, is five today! It’s bittersweet — on one hand, I’m so proud of the big boy he’s become and amazed by how much he’s grown in the last five years (and, let’s be honest, I’m also glad that he’s more physically independent now; sippy cups, Pull-Ups, and huge messes at every … Continue reading

Oreo Monkey Muffins

OK, OK, I know what you’re thinking: Didn’t you just make an Oreo cake? How many Oreo desserts can one family eat? Well, thanks to my husband’s intense love of Oreos, there can never be enough sandwich cookie-themed treats. For Father’s Day, I made my favorite — frozen Oreo monkey bars in muffin form. I … Continue reading

Easter Cookie Pops

Nutella Crescent Cookies

For Valentine’s Day, I decided to whip up these cute little Nutella pie crust crescent cookies — flaky, chocolaty little bites of heaven. I saw the recipe on my friend Marci’s Pinterest board the other day (feel free to follow any or all of my Pinterest boards!), and I knew I would be making these … Continue reading

Chocolate-Dipped Valentine’s Day Cookies

OK, so maybe I cheated a bit with these — they’re actually the same sugar cookie recipe I posted around Christmas, just cut into heart shapes, dipped in chocolate and adorned with sprinkles. But, I figured, why mess with an awesome cookie recipe? (Also, I’m feeling somewhat lazy this week.) These are easy, cute and … Continue reading

Amazingly Addictive Sugar Cookies

I’ve tried any number of sugar cookie recipes over the years, but have been disappointed in every one (and I’ve used many — dozens! — of recipes). I have high expectations of a sugar cookie: It can’t be too mealy or chewy, or too sweet and cloying. I need to taste butter, eggs and a … Continue reading
