Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good Chocolate Chip Cookie? I can’t take credit for this recipe because it is the Nestle Toll House Cookie Recipe. This recipe has been my favorite since I was a kid. Back then, when my Mom would make these, I always took four cookies and wrapped them in foil. I hid them in the freezer and […]

M & M Cookies

I came up with this M & M Cookie recipe many, many years ago. The cookies come out of the oven perfect every time. I bake them on parchment paper which keeps them from spreading out to thin.  I like to use the red and green M & M’s because these cookies are part of my Christmas cookie tradition. There is […]

A lot of people put Hershey Kisses in their peanut butter cookies but I make these cookies for Christmas and the chocolate stars are a Christmas tradition in my house. […]

Whoopie Pies

I drive to Amish Country twice a year and NEVER come home without Whoopie Pies. I decided it was time to make my own. They are more of a cake like cookie, not a pie. I researched the name and there is only speculation where they originally came from. It is believed that they have been around since the 1920’s. Whoopie Pies […]

Lemon Cookies

Do you like the flavor of lemon? I find it strange how I didn’t care for lemon when I was younger and now that I’m older I do. I wanted to create a recipe for a Lemon Cookie that you could really taste the lemon. So many times I have tried lemon baked food and you can barely taste the lemon. I didn’t expect this recipe […]

Thin Mint Chocolate Cookies

Paper airplanes and large balloons. Who knew that in a world of technology that the grandchildren would play for hours with only paper airplanes (that we made) and balloons (that my 6 year old blew up). The paper airplanes were a big hit as they went soaring across my living room crashing into anything in their path. Now the balloons….. […]
