I can’t live without (_______)

These hazelnut chocolate cookies from Trader Joe’s! This was truly a last minute impulse buy while looking for Pepper Joe Joe’s.  I had to stop myself from eating the entire box in one sitting.  The cookies are light and crispy without being hard and crunchy and the filling was nice a creamy.  I felt so…

Ginger Molasses Cookies

Back when I had my little cookie business edith + ethel, ginger molasses cookies was on the menu. I must say, they’re one of my favorites. I would make tons of ginger molasses cookies for gift boxes during the holidays.  That was back when I was a stay at home mom, and had slightly more…

Lemon Tea Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Lemon tea cookies with lemon glaze might be my new favorite cookie. I bought a huge bag of lemons from Costco the other day. I needed the zest for another recipe (making limoncello, coming soon), but had a ton of lemons left over that I needed to use. I’ve already tried lemon bars, and wasn’t…

Blueberry and Cream Cookies

About a week ago, I made blueberry cornbread, and bought way more blueberries than necessary for the recipe. I froze some for later use, but I still had a container that was on its last legs in the refrigerator, and needed to come up with another recipe quick. Blueberry and cream cookies. I’ve wanted to make…

Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whenever I see a recipe, article, or headline that reads “The best…” I raise an eyebrow. Is it really the best? While poking around on Bon Appetit’s website the other day, I saw a link in the sidebar that read “Could this recipe be the greatest chocolate chip cookie ever?” I of course, clicked on…

Levain Bakery

I spent just over 48hrs in New York and I knew that Levain Bakery had to be one of my stops. I’ve heard so much about their cookies (and the lines) and I needed to see if they lived up to the hype. Levain Bakery is located on the upper west side tucked away in…

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie

Now that I’ve put edith + ethel (my little cookie business) to rest, I’ve been in the mood to bake cookies just for myself.  I wanted a classic chocolate chip cookie, with a little oomph. I thought about pretzels or nuts, but a settled on a caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookie.  Mmmm caramel stuffed chocolate…

Black and White Cookies

I love black and white cookies.  I mean, I really love them.  But I don’t need a fancy one from a bakery.  My favorite are the ones you buy at a bodega.  I’m pretty sure I was addicted to them when I lived in New York.  I’m surprised that I haven’t tried to make them…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ah, cookies.  I love whipping up a batch.  I always seem to have the ingredients on hand, the batter comes together in minutes and really, is there anything better than a fresh, warm cookie straight from the oven?  I was craving a warm cookie the other day, and 20 minutes later I was sitting on…

Snickerdoodle

I can’t believe I haven’t posted a recipe for snickerdoodle cookies until now.  I’ve been making them for years and have tried many recipes, but this one has recently become my favorite!  The snickerdoodle for me is like eating cinnamon toast in cookie form.  It’s sweet, slightly crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy…

Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies

It’s the day after Christmas and Miles is on a plane to spend the rest of the holiday with his dad.  He’s been flying solo for years now, but I never get used to it.  A mom is always a mom 🙂 For a going away present I made him a batch of chocolate-dipped sugar…

Whiskey and Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ah, cookies.  It’s time to get back to cookies.  And boozy desserts, so naturally when I saw this recipe for whiskey and rye chocolate chip cookies, I had to try it for myself.  Every time I see a recipe out there, I always have a “why didn’t I think of that” reaction. I’m beginning to…
