Recipe 26: Coconut Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

I made cookies for a Salad Bar Potluck at work (I know), but I thought a cookie with fruit fit the theme.

Cherry is a fruit. Coconut is a fruit, right? And sugar is a fruit. Okay, I promise I’m not dumb.  Continue reading

Recipe 20: Lime-Glazed Cookies

Another log cookie. Hmph. As you may know, I am not a fan of log cookies. It’s been a long time since I’ve made one, so I guess it’s time. This one also wants you to flatten the sides, so it’s not going to be weird when the knife does it anyway. Here we go.

Mmmm….lime. Tart city right here. If you love lime, you’ll love these cookies.  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!

Recipe 4: Mocha Slice Cookies

Today’s recipe comes from the McCormick free Sugar & Spice recipe add-on to the app. Brennan was in town for a couple days and wanted to bake with me. We settled on this one because it looked good and pretty simple.

Recipe 3: Glitter Ball Cookies

I went to Starbucks yesterday and they had all their holiday stuff out. I want everything! I probably said, “ooh, I NEED this” 15 times. Ask Megan.

I know that last week I said I was in the holiday spirit, but now I really am. So I rushed home from work, queued up A Very She & Him Christmas on Airplay and started making Glitter Ball Cookies (with creamy ginger filling).

I’ve wanted to make these since the day I bought the app, but didn’t want to jump into something too complicated, too soon. The “glitter” freaked me out. The “sandwiching” freaked me out. I’m on recipe 3, the first 2 were a success, so I went for it.

Recipe 2: Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies

Okay, people. I had a lot of fun forcing all my friends to read my blog. I got lots of views and the people who tried my Peanut-Chocolate Chip Cookies loved them. I’ll admit, I got a little cocky. I was ready to make a gazillion more.

So today I decided to make Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies. They didn’t look too difficult and it was time for cocoa. Glenn Coco.

Yum, right?! Continue reading

I can’t bake. (I think)

Ever since I heard about the Belkin Chef Stand + Stylus, I wanted it!

So today I bought one. I also bought the Martha Stewart Makes Cookies app for my iPad for $4.99. Spendy for an app, right? I justified it by saying I’d bake and blog my way through it. So you, my loyal follower(s), you depend on me. I have to keep it up or you’ll shrivel up and die. I know how it is.

I’m not a baker. I’m lazy.
Wait, let me back up. In middle school, I got the highest grade in my home ec class “Baking and Boxers” (we baked and sewed boxer shorts).
High school rolled around and I lost my gift. My friend Jaydra and I baked, but we used the “we suck at baking” excuse. Our food was no treat.

I like my iPad, I like cookies, and I want to be cool. So, here I go.
