    Chocolate Chippers ~ The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies…so far

    I made a batch of these delicious cookies recently and fell in love with them all over again. They are definitely our favourite chocolate chip cookies. About 20 years ago, in the school yard, a kind mom shared some of her freshly baked cookies with me, while we waited for the kids to come out. They were fantastic and I told her so. She was eager to let me know that the “secret ingredient” was a packet of Instant Vanilla Pudding powder. I have no idea where she got the original recipe from but I can tell you that adding the vanilla pudding makes some pretty darn amazing cookies! Alas, it…

    Chewy Choco Chips + Nuts Cookie Bars

    Here’s one that’s an oldie but a goodie as they say… I tore this recipe out of a magazine back in my teenage years, when I first started taking a liking to cooking. So, it’s been around for a good 35 years. Yikes! My sister and I had a few recipes for cookies and bars that we learned to make on our own, like this one. I remember baking them often because they were pretty easy for a newbie baker with not a lot of kitchen skills or fancy tools. The bars were not very pretty, often with overcooked edges and definitely not picture worthy. But they were chocolatey, chewy,…

Let’s get this virus situation under control, so we can enjoy what’s left of our short summer. Now on to the cookies… Here’s a recipe for deliciously spiced cut-out cookies. These sweet treats are light tasting and hold up well to going for a dunk in your morning coffee or tea. Don’t let the modest, unpretentious…

    Austrian Holiday Cookies

    I heard Christmas music playing the other day while shopping… It always feels a smidgen too early to me if it’s before December 1st, but this year, with this ongoing pandemic situation, I am happy to start the festivities asap. It seems a lot of people feel the same way, so let’s get this holiday season under way already! Time to start sharing some of my favourite cookie recipes and get baking. Simple homemade cookies such as shortbreads, sugar cookies and slice and bake are pretty easy to make. And they are so worth the extra effort. Make them in November, then freeze them in Tupperware containers and you will…

    The Best Lemon Crinkle Cookies

    Happy boxing day friends☺️ This is not an instant pot recipe… And it’s not my own creation either. But these cookies, that our friend Mara teased us with at work last week, were soooo delish that I had to get the recipe! I have since made several batches. I might be addicted…they really are so good! For my work colleagues, these were the cookies that I brought in for the potluck. I got many requests for the recipe, so here you go! Happy baking😊 Here’s  the link to the original recipe (which I followed to the letter, except that I omitted the yellow food coloring) LEMON CRINKLE COOKIES from Cooking…
