Recipe 43: Cinnamon-Chocolate Macaroons

I’ve been blogging for a year! Can you believe it? I almost averaged 1 per week, which is pretty good!

This is my first holiday-ish cookie of the year. There are some weird ones coming up, but first, these!

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.

I thought these would be fun. They weren’t.  Continue reading

Recipe 30: Chocolate Mint Wafers

Happy 30th recipe to me! It’s crazy, considering before I started this blog, I’d probably only baked 30 times in my entire life.

This time I made Chocolate Mint Wafers. Although this is in Martha’s “Holiday Cookies” section, I wanted them now.

Why? Well, these are basically Thin Mints and those snotty little Girl Scouts aren’t selling cookies this time of year!

I omitted the nonpareils for a less-Christmasy look. Continue reading

Recipe 16: Hugs and Kisses Cookies

Valentine’s Day is approaching and there are a few related cookies in the app. I decided to start with Hugs and Kisses Sugar (and chocolate) Cookies.

Recipe 10: Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

It’s been DAYS since I last baked cookies. I felt empty inside before today. I’m sorry if I let any of you down. Please jump back on my train.

This satisfies my every desire:

EXCEPT for the walnuts. I decided to kick them out of this recipe because nobody likes fucking walnuts.  Continue reading

Recipe 9: Spice Stars

Since Christmas is only 2 weeks away, I want to make as many holiday cookies as possible. This time I chose Spice Stars.

More nonpareils! This would be my first cookie with a cutter. Scary.

Recipe 8: Lemon Wreaths

I promised you all that I would try something more difficult this time. Well, I did.

Those look like mini donuts (or if you’re cool – abbreviated as “dones”), but I trick you not, my friends. Those are cookies! Pretty cookies.

This recipe is the most difficult so far. Making rings and dipping in glaze and nonpareils? That’s stressful. Continue reading

Recipe 6: Chocolate Gingerbread Bars

Martha, what do you mean by “cookie”? Chocolate Gingerbread Bars do not look like cookies, but they look good!

I bet by the end of this I won’t care whether or not it’s a cookie. Continue reading

Recipe 5: Cranberry Coins

When I hear “cranberry coins” I always think of the can of jellied cranberry sauce that Dustin and I remove from the can (whole) and slice it into coins. This recipe was perfect for Thanksgiving!
