Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

For today’s gratitude: I am grateful for my family. I have a loving, wonderful family and many fond memories of childhood. Chocolate chip cookies were one of my favourite childhood treats. I remember making cookies with my mom and my sister, and eating indecent amounts of cookie dough. My mom would disappear to the pantry, […]

Chocolate Almond Biscotti

Biscotti–“twice-baked” cookies–go great with afternoon coffee. Biscotti are easy to make at home, keep for several days in a cookie tin, and are very adaptable. Here, I’ve followed this hazelnut biscotti recipe from Smitten Kitchen, but I substituted almonds for hazelnuts. Chocolate Almond Biscotti Ingredients 2.5 cups white flour .5 cup cocoa powder 1/4 tsp […]

They are have a buttery, sandy texture, with soft bits of chocolate embedded throughout. My cookies crumbled a lot while cutting them into slices. However, I […]

Chewy Gingersnaps

Gingersnaps are mandatory Christmas baking. They taste like Christmas, smell like grandma’s house, and are the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee. These gingersnaps are delicious – not too gingery, just the right amount of molasses. They are very light in colour, however, much lighter than what I think of as being more […]

Chocolate Candy Nut Cookies

These cookies are delicious, packed with chocolate, M&Ms, and walnuts. I followed a basic chocolate-chip cookie recipe, but substituted M&Ms and walnuts for some of the chocolate chips. Chocolate Candy Nut Cookies Adapted from Smitten Kitchen Ingredients 2 cups flour 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 cup melted butter 1 1/2 cups sugar […]
