This weekend was the 48 Hour Film Project and I wanted to feed my team. The challenge was selecting something that was relatively simple. I chose these:


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 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 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!
