What is your favorite part of The Holiday Season? Yes, the family time is what we are obligated to say and it is truly the best part. But I guess what I am asking is what is your favorite Christmas tradition. Is it the gift giving? The gift receiving? Christmas dinner traditions? Watching the kids eyes light up as they open gifts? Desserts? Whatever your favorite traditions, there is always room to add more. It is even better to make them easy traditions that look like they are more complicated than they actually are.
Meringue cookies only seem to show up around the holidays. I am wondering why that may be? Is it because they are tough to have set up properly? Well, this is a very simple recipe that will bring these delicious cookies to your table in a matter of minutes. That is right, it uses three ingredients and doesn’t require any whipping or baking. I am going to try these for the husband’s Christmas party!! Happy baking. Do you have a Christmas party you need to bake for this year? Try some of these fun recipes out!
The best Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches I have ever had were at Disneyland. They were so good because the cookies were hot from the oven and they were still able to get the ice cream on there in those perfect circles. Maybe, it had to do with standing in Sleeping Beauty’s castle at the time, or the 95 degree day.
I have tried to duplicate those cookie sandwiches in the past. My cookies are amazing but I can never get the ice cream just perfect. Now I can. This is a great hack to get those perfect ice cream cookie sandwiches. I would never have thought of this myself. I’m excited!
This is the perfect snacks for a perfect summer day. You don’t need to limit yourself to vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookies either. Try some other combinations too, like sugar cookies and sherbet. I don’t think I can wait for a hot day to make these, I want one right now!
What are some combinations of cookie and ice cream you are going to try? Tell me in the comments so I can try them too. My new favorite flavor of ice cream is ‘The Tonight Dough.’ So good!
Use cookie cutters for cutting cookies only. No. Be a rebel. Use them on everything and make your life better. So much better. That’s what this roundup, featured at Smosh, did for me. I’m inspired and so excited to feature it here today! Excited! Ecstatic! Exuberant! It’s the best. Really.
This is a simple Idea but one I’ve never used. Everything from vegetables to mozzarella can take on a new and fun shape thanks to cookie cutters. These would be be perfect if you have a picky eater. Fun shaped food always tasted better…
Using cookie cutters for crafts is a brilliant idea too. I love the ideas of using them to write shapes on cards. I’m sad I didn’t know abou the frozen whipped cream in time for hot chocolate season this year. The pancake one is my absolute favorite. Now I can branch out from my traditional mickey mouse ears. Fun!
I want to try these but mostly I just want to gobble up some delicious cookies. I’ll probably start with these classic peanut butter cookies from Land O Lakes. Yummy!
What pretty cookies! Pretty delicious! You don’t have to make these cookies in all the colors of the rainbow but it really does look like a colorful bouquet if you do! I can’t wait to try these. They will be a welcome change from my ‘cookie press’ cookies. I’m sure my family will appreciate something new!
Don’t worry if your not Julia Child, there are detailed instructions to follow (written and video). One thing that the tutorial doesn’t mention is the total time needed to make these crunchy, sugary, cream cheese cookies. My guess is 1.5 hours. If you consider mixing (10), chilling (30-45), sprinkling, cutting, and candies (20), baking time (10-12 per batch), cooling (15).
Those are only guesses from sugar cookies compared to some sugar cookies I made last summer. These look beautiful! So do these ones from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Yum, sugar cookies! Get the recipe here.
I always have paper plates. So I have no excuses for not making these! I would never turn down cookies of any kind but receiving them in a gift box like this would make them even more sweet. I wish I’d known about this before I delivered Christmas cookies! You need 5 minutes, some tape, a pair of scissors, maybe a ribbon, and of course some delicious cookies. I need to start baking cookies for the neighbors! Check out this delicious recipe from the Cooking Channel here…
The quickest way to my heart is with chocolate and caramel. These thumbprint cookies from All Food Recipes make me swoon! It’s probably because they have a caramel center with a chocolate drizzle and a pecan coating. Yum. Theses are the grownup version of the cookies we used to make when we were littles. Oh we’ve come a long way from just sticking Hershey’s Kisses on cookies.
There is a science to cookie baking. Follow the recipe exactly and every once in awhile the perfect cookies will emerge from the oven. But I want to know how to get those excellent treats every time. Lifehacker has some techniques and hints on the ingredients that will get the right results every time. I am a chewy-crispy cookie kinda girl myself and now I know how to get that every time!
I love sugar and spring! Tonia from The Gunny Sack came up with a brilliant cookie idea that combines both my loves and I had to share it! Flower pot cookies are such a cute idea. Add together sugar cookies, chocolate, cream, oreos, and cute little paper flowers to get the cutest cookie out there!
Easter is just around the corner and there and are so many delicious treats to look forward to. Today I want to show off the designs of Amber Spiegel and tons of other bakers. This round up of cookies has so many wonderful ideas. The designs are full of beautiful purples, yellows, greens, and blues. So beautiful to see and even better to eat I am sure!
