I discovered not too long ago that people either love or loathe carrot cake, which I find surprising since carrot is one of the few cakes that I actually enjoy. Having said that, I ordered a slice of carrot cake from a bakery once and I learned that day how painful and cruel life can sometimes be because I bit into it and found a raisin.
Today, I wanted to re-blog a recipe I reviewed way back when. I think September just feels right for these cookies. Maybe it’s that back-to-school season that has me ready.
Royal icing is an icing that is great for decorating cookies, it dries hard so you can stack the cookies and even ship them. It is smooth, pretty, and easy to color any color you want.
There is really no way to turn down cookies made with buttermilk. Maybe it’s the acidic quality of buttermilk that breaks everything down, and makes it soft and flavorful and amazing, I don’t know. And I don’t care, as long as I have some buttermilk baked goods in the house.
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.
I’ve been noticing lately how many of my stories begin with the phrase, “So I went to Costco….” So, I went to Costco and came home with a giant box of strawberries. Gorgeous, sweet, juicy strawberries. I wanted nothing more than to bake with them.
Since the neighbor and long time friend of the Hippie Chick was having a birthday, we wanted to celebrate with something, well… fun. And, obviously it’s more fun if it has the word “fun” in it. Or if it has Oreos. And so I used both.
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.
