This is another one of those cookie recipes that I just had to try. I’ve had them before, but I’ve never actually made them. Since this year we have decided to make every cookie imaginable, these were of course at the top of our list! I didn’t realize that they would be so easy though! …

With this recipe, I have decided to take a page out of my own cookbook and use a recipe of my own! This recipe is derived from my Oatmeal Whoopie Pie recipe, but I’ve excluded the “whoopie” part. Don’t get me wrong, the oatmeal whoopie pies are fabulous, but they just don’t scream Christmas and …

This is your classic chocolate chip cookie amped up about 5 million notches. We had to do your traditional chocolate chip cookie, but I wasn’t about to go with the standard recipe. Of course there had to be some kind of nut involved, and why not just reverse it completely; and go with a chocolate …

We all know Zach’s hatred for lemon, but for some odd reason he loves lemonades and limoncello. I try to solve this mystery everyday, but get no where. I’m under the impression that he just PRETENDS not to like it. I’m not sure why he would do this, but this is the furthest I’ve gotten …

This is another recipe that was inspired by my mom. Although they are a tad different, the general idea remains the same. You can basically look at this recipe and call it a sugar cookie with an indentation in the middle. These cookies were again, a bit of a gamble, and although they are absolutely …

It wouldn’t be the holidays without whipping up something that snaps. I think I’m going to avoid gingerbread men and women this year, and just go with an untraditional gingersnap made with love and TONS of ginger and chocolate. What’s so special about these cookies is the perfect balance of ginger and chocolate. One doesn’t …

I’m going to hand over the content for this cookie over to Zach. Because this is his family’s recipe and I have no idea what the history and tradition is behind it! Better for it to come from him, so here he is!! These chocolate drop cookies have been a long-standing tradition in my family, …

It’s been, what I would call, a lifetime of tradition in my immediate family for baking cookies around Christmas time. As far back as I can remember, my mom has been the eyes and ears of this operation: always making sure she made our personal favorites and always making sure there were more than enough …
