Recipe 42: Mocha Madeleines

What the hell is a madeleine? That’s a weird-looking cookie, I thought.

I found a madeleine pan at TJ Maxx and got ready. If you know me, you know how much I love coffee, so this was perfect.  Continue reading

Recipe 41: Italian Polenta Cookies

Polenta. I can’t say cookies come to mind when I think of it. Whatever you say, Martha.

It felt good to bake again. I went almost 3 weeks! I’ll never do that again.

This one required a piping bag, which I’ve had bad luck with. Here it goes!  Continue reading

Recipe 40: Chocolate-Almond Crackles

Wow, Mom, it’s been too long since I’ve updated! This post is old news because I made them in September for our company picnic. Sorry.

Before I begin, I have to say that this blog is now officially natemakescookies.com! Tell all your friends!

I made friends with another dessert blogger, Carrie at cookiecarrie.com. We decided to send each other some goods and this is what I decided on:

Our HQ for the weekend had all the ingredients except white chocolate, so this was perfect!  Continue reading

Recipe 35: Pecan Sandies

Another nutty cookie comin’ atcha. Don’t fret, though. These aren’t nearly as offensive as walnuts.

These looked decent and also looked quick. I had the premiere episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to watch and didn’t want to spend all night baking!  Continue reading

Recipe 34: Peanut Butter Surprises

I’ve been eyeing these ones for a long time and it’s finally time to bake them!

SURPRISE! There’s peanut butter in the middle of them! Martha is such a trickster. Continue reading

Recipe 33: Gluten-Free Hazelnut Shortbread

Did you miss me? I’m so sorry I’ve been away for so long. I made this recipe on the last day in my house (more on that next time), so this post was delayed by all my moving activities.

 

I made these ones for the birthday of a co-worker who is gluten intolerant. It started off rough. Continue reading

Recipe 31: Chocolate-Dipped Macadamia Cookies

This may be the fastest back-to-back baking I’ve ever done! This time I made another chocolate-dipped cookie, but only because I needed one with macadamia nuts.


Kristina helped out with this one because we have a co-worker, Randi, who is moving to Hawaii, so this batch is a going away present! Too bad it doesn’t also have pineapple. Continue reading
