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 32: Cream Cheese Brownies

According to Martha, brownies are cookies. I’ll accept that.

The app has 4 different brownie recipes in one, so you’ll see this picture again in the future. Today I chose cream cheese brownies!

I think you can guess which one is the cream cheese brownie. 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

Recipe 27: Lime Squares with Pistachio Graham-Cracker Crust

I decided to make a bar cookie today. The lemon bars were good and I’ve been eyeing these for a long time. I happened to already have pistachios on hand, so perfect timing!

Yum, right? Seemed easy enough.  Continue reading

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 22: Lemon-Glazed Candied-Ginger Cookies

Crap. I’ve been a bad baker/blogger. It’s been almost a month since my last post. I have baked one batch of cookies in that time, but was too [choose your excuse and insert it here] to post it.

I’ve been wanting to make these ones for a long time, but haven’t been able to find candied ginger. I looked in the spices, in the asian aisle, and in bulk. I finally asked a couple people at Market of Choice and found it in bulk with the dried fruit. D’oh!

Oh, the last ones I made had glaze like this? So what, who cares?  Continue reading

Recipe 21: Sugar-Rimmed Margarita Cookies

Finally! A recipe I don’t have to pretend to drop alcohol into!

This one is for all you lushes out there who love margaritas.

The glaze has tequila. Uncooked, full booze level tequila.  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 19: Chocolate-Molasses Cookies

As you know, Lindsay Lohan hosted SNL the other night. In celebration, Shannon and I had “Linsanity: A Lohan Evening.” We started by watching “I Know Who Killed Me” (Terrible. Still unsure if it was worth the $3.99 to rent. Okay, it was.) and baking cookies.

Clearly, we had to make something with powdered sugar, so we chose Chocolate-Molasses Cookies.

If you don’t get the powdered sugar/Lohan reference, go take a month away from the world and catch up on pop culture. If you don’t care to, get off my blog.
