Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast CookiesBack in the 60’s Grandmother served cake or cookies to her husband for breakfast. Who knew? How lucky he was, I thought. Today an early morning cookie with coffee is pretty commonplace. It’s not a bad thing. In fact many cookies today are packed with a nutritional value that far outweighs the calories. Pair one of these wonderful cookies with coffee, tea or milk and breakfast is that easy.

Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

New version of the shortbread cookie. Cranberry fits, doesn’t it! What I like best about these cookies besides the deliciously buttery shortbread taste … they keep fresh longer, longer than many cookies … about 5 days. Not that they’ll last that long! But it’s a cookie you can make ahead. Like I have made here for my Thanksgiving crowd. Yes, we’ll have pies! But the days leading up to Thanksgiving we have to have dessert on those days too!

Apple Season Recipes

Apple Season RecipesIt’s Apple Season! Some of my favorite Apple Recipes for you to try. Make your own applesauce for the baked recipes with this ingredient. So easy. Just peel, core and roughly chop cooking apples. Place into your medium saucepan with a bit of water-just enough water to barely cover the bottom. Simmer until apples are applesauce consistently. Add a pinch of salt if you wish. No sugar needed. Perfect! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chips

Chocolate ChipsSometimes the recipe has an outcome you hadn’t expected. Good or bad! This time it’s somewhere in-between. The cookie flavor is lacking ‘though a tablespoon of vanilla is used, and all the nuts and chocolate chips can’t help. So … rather than sharing a recipe I doubt I will ever try again I’d like to share some of my favorite chocolate chip recipes.

Thanks neighbors for being my taste testers.

Fig Bars

Fig BarsSo if you like Fig Newtons you’ll love these! Are these a knock off? Nope! But the texture and flavor are similar. These are just better. I’m not just saying … I’m guaranteeing! My little fig tree only gave up enough for this recipe, and a few extra for a wine accompaniment. Use a cup … to a cup and a half for those who want a fully packed fig bar. Just amazing!

Chai Meltaways

Chia MeltawaysChai Meltaways says it all! Doesn’t that sound like the perfect cookie! It’s worth purchasing chai spice (rather than putting it together yourself) simply because the proportion and combination of spices is done for you & it’s a lot cheaper than purchasing all the spices you need separately. I’ve found King Arthur Flour is pretty reasonable with pricing and I trust their products. This has a 5-star rating. Check it out here. This cookie just has an amazing flavor and texture. I can’t wait to move on to cakes and muffins with this spice combination.

Fruit Bars

Fruit Bars

Very proud of this makeover. It’s a makeover for two reasons. I’ve used leftover cake crumbs, and secondly, this cookie is a cousin to a Hermit bar. This all came about while reminiscing with a friend about an old town bakery long gone. Their Fruit Bar, no confirmation by the owner, was whipped up with leftover cake crumbs. I’d never heard of such a thing … replacing flour with cake crumbs. I guess this is a practice in some bakeries. I say when the outcome is like this one, DO IT. Thank you Debbie!

Why is it when I have a great recipe to show off I can’t seem to get a great picture!
