I thought these Giant Ginger Cookies would make a fitting finale to this year’s cookie week. Wanna know why?
My sister-in-law gave me a jar of the most beautiful dark and flavorful plum jelly you’ve ever seen. It’s tart, full of flavor, and frankly, tastes fantastic with these almond Linzers. I debated about parting with it but finally decided the cookies were worth it.
I nearly drove to the nearest fast food restaurant in the pouring rain for a chocolate milkshake, that’s how strong the chocolate craving was. In fact the only thing that kept me from doing just that was the knowledge that there was a brownie mix in my pantry.
I almost didn’t post this recipe. Almost. My son, The Lizard, convinced me to do it, between bites. The thing is, this recipe didn’t turn out exactly the way I planned it in my head. But it tastes so marvelously, fantastically decadent, I knew I had to share it with you.
This zucchini is humongous. It’s the size of a small child. It’s as big as my leg. It’s the biggest zucchini I’ve ever seen in my life. And it’s sitting on my kitchen counter.
Two ripe bananas sat on the counter, like a challenge. “What will you make of us?” they screamed at me. And this is a cookie blog, and it’s been a while since we had a good creative cookie on here. Decision made.
The girls and I had fun figuring out what kind of cookie we could make with the ingredients we had on hand. I found a half bag of chocolate chips and a half bag of cinnamon chips, and The Hippie Chick suggested oatmeal cookies, and voila! A heavenly concoction was born.
Most of the cookie truffle recipes I’ve seen call for cream cheese. I decided to rebel, to stick it to the man, and use frosting instead. Yep, I’m a rebel. I’ll be going out for a tattoo any minute now.
People understand Snickerdoodles. They know what they’re getting. There are no surprises and no wondering if you have to pretend to have an allergy to one of the ingredients.
I love a good holiday. I love the comradery, the break from the daily grind, and most of all, the food. Oh, the food! Holiday food is the best, isn’t it?
I bet he won’t have any trouble finding these dark chocolate cookies. The kid loves chocolate. And cookies. This is why I deliberately made them on a day when I knew he would be gone all day. This way, I get to eat one or two before he discovers them.
Even with the 100-ish cookie recipes on this site, good old-fashioned packaged Oreos are still Robb’s favorite. I bought a package of plain original Oreos, and used half the package on this yummy Oreo White Chocolate Popcorn, and left the other half of the package for Robb to eat plain.
Whose big idea was it to have cake for every single birthday party ever? Nothing against cake, but I can think of about a dozen things I’d rather have. I don’t think there’s a single thing wrong with a birthday brownie, pie, cobbler, krispie treat, or fruit covered cookie.
I bought myself a new maxi dress, so I guess I’m ready for summer. Why does lemon seem so summery? Some fruits can feel at home in any season, but plain old lemon is a summer as it gets.
Do you ever wonder what white chocolate is? All I know is I like it. White chocolate is yummy. The puppy and I agree on this point.
