I already know this Valentines Day is going to be a good one, because I get to celebrate it with my blog buds! We’re back!
Someday I’m going to come up with a fantastic Key Lime Pie recipe. In the meantime, I really want that sweet lime flavor in a cookie.
Over the years, I have taken my mother’s long-time favorite sugar cookie recipe, and perfected the details. While the recipe itself is heavenly, it is the process that makes them absolutely perfect.
Eating a few bites of that eggnog shake really made me ready for winter baking. I came home and immediately dreamed up these eggnog cookies. Come check out all the cookie week cookies and enter the giveaway!
Have you ever made cookies in the waffle iron? Granted, you can only make 4 cookies at a time, but they cook quickly, and you don’t have to heat up your oven. And the kids think it’s such a novelty to eat cookies that look like waffles. What can I say? I aim to please.
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.

The passing of beloved Aunt B was the final excuse I needed to bake chocolate cookies. Well, I never need much of an excuse to make something chocolate. Let me rephrase. It was the final excuse I needed to make the family recipe. Oh, hooray for family recipes that are chocolate!!
This chocolate cake recipe is fast, easy, and made in the microwave. Who knew microwave cake could be so delicious?
These pink cookies are so fun to dip in vanilla frosting. The cookies get their pink color from maraschino cherries, and the frosting is made a little thin, to be the perfect consistency for dipping.
These chocolate brownie cookies think they’re all that and a bag of chips. And the Marshmallow Creme Frosting is so full of itself.
