Day 14 – Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge

Let us be honest. Fudge can be tricky. If you are making what I like to call “real fudge,” you would never ever think to use marshmallow creme, but I am here to tell you that it’s NOT WORTH IT! Use the marshmallow creme! I beg you! If you don’t, trust me, you will get […]

Day 13 – Golden Rugelach

I’d be sad if many of you didn’t know what Rugelach was and where it originated from, but that is why we are here to learn new things and bake/cook fabulous dishes! Rugelach is an inspiring, yet challenging cookie that is so rewarding if done right. It has nutty, fruity goodness combined with a sweet, […]

Day 12 – Caramel Butter Bars

Caramel…Butter…Bars…What is not to love about that name for a recipe? I haven’t really taken a stab at caramel this year yet (for Christmas cookies that is). That’s because I have little to no luck with the stuff. I could go on and on about my experiences: about how the last time I tried to […]

Day 11 – Lusikkaleivat (Spoon Cookies)

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! […]

Day 10 – Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

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 […]

Day 9 – Double Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies

These double chocolate white chocolate chunk macadamia nut cookies are the perfect sweet treat for any time of day! 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 […]

Day 8 – Italian Lemon Drops (i.e. Lemon Anginetti)

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 […]

Day 6 – Pineapple Thumbprint Cookies

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 […]

Day 5 – Chocolate Ginger Snaps

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 […]
