Little did I know these would KILL my Christmas spirit. Ugh.  Continue reading

Recipe 55: Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Bars

These might seem like they’re meant for the holidays. That’s because they came from the Sugar and Spice section of the app.

Recipe 44: Gingersnap Cookies

I’m watching a Christmas movie to get me in the mood to write this blog. It’s not a good one, but I’ll take what I can get.

This was my first time making gingersnaps (surprise). Let’s see how it goes.

Recipe 38: Chocolate Moose Cookies

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:

Recipe 32: Cream Cheese Brownies

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 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.

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

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.

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

2 separate recipes in 1? Martha, you crazy! Or is it me that’s crazy for going for it?
