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 […]

I have been making these Butterball Cookies with my Christmas Cookies for decades now. These cookies are about as easy as it gets. I like to freeze them and take out […]

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. They don’t […]

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….. […]

Giant Chocolate Filled Cookie

I made this delicious cookie for my husband. Ok, so maybe I ate just as much as he did. I decided to try a giant chocolate filled cookie in my cast iron skillet. I wanted to make it taste different from the regular chocolate chip cookies that I usually make so I used milk chocolate chips instead of my normal semi-sweet chocolate chips. […]
