Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Today I have a recipe that’s I have been wanting to make for a good while. Chocolate and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this cookie doesn’t disappoint. The cinnamon chips gives the cookies a warmth fitting for the colder months coming up or for a holiday cookie platter. I slightly altered my recipe for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, which resulted in a cookie that was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Earl Grey Shortbread

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! We are officially in autumn and I am ecstatic to welcome back my favorite season. If you are looking some subtle-tea in your cookie to pair with a delightfully warm beverage, do I have a recipe for you! Admittedly I was hoping for a bit more of the earl grey to pull through, but I think it works out well for these cookies. They provide a welcome twist to the classic shortbread and goes well with a strong cuppa.

Pumpkin Pasties

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It’s already halfway through September and I am so so ready for fall, despite the current weather hanging onto summer with all its might. I’m the kind of person to make pumpkin foods year-round, so it’s nice when it’s seasonally appropriate. If you’re looking to dive into the leaves of fall, try out these pumpkin pasties. The crust is nice and flaky and the filling is rounded out well with a medley of spices. It’s all topped with a sugar and spice mixture to give it an extra crunch. I recommend listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks while making these. It ads a certain, dare I say, magic to the whole experience.

Lemon Crackle Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Here is a little recipe to brighten up your morning. I wanted to make one more summery recipe before going fully into fall mode and using cinnamon with reckless abandon. I wanted to squeeze a bit of summer into a crackle cookie before it completely went away and I’d like to think I accomplished that. These cookies are soft, not too sweet with a bit of tartness. If you want a quick lemon fix, look no further!

Sprinkle Layer Cake

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! It’s good to get back in a baking groove again. To celebrate doing this whole writing recipes and posting them thing that I’ve been doing for a year, I decided to make a triple layer funfetti cake. Turns out I let the cakes cool a smidge too long and opted not to grease my pans. Don’t be like me, grease your pans and you’ll have a smoother time baking this than I did. All baking mishaps aside, this it a cake that is a deliciously vanilla cake that is ready to party.

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Marshmallow Creme Frosting

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Though the flavors happening this week aren’t necessarily summer appropriate, I thought they’d spice things up a bit. It was a fantastic excuse to make my apartment smell like cinnamon. Not only that, but you get a bit of nutmeg, ginger, and clove to round out the pumpkin spices. To balance out the spices, I decided to pair it with a sweet marshmallow creme frosting. If you are looking for some creme cheese frosting, might I point you to the one in the Pumpkin Cutout Cookie recipe I posted in the fall?

Blueberry Muffins with Oat Crumble Topping

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Another Sunday morning classic I had growing up was blueberry muffins. Whether it was out of the packet or from scratch, having muffins for breakfast was a berry welcome treat. Blueberry muffins weren’t always a clear favorite for me. Don’t get me wrong, I always liked blueberry muffins but they weren’t always my favorite. Overtime my tastes changed and blueberry muffins became my number one muffin flavor. This probably has something to do with how great they were at Iowa State. This recipe was my attempt to achieve something like it, but with some edits.

Nutella Stuffed Sugar Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! It feels good to be back making recipes again. I thought I would make a special post and share a recipe I originally made back in college. Though technically back then I didn’t use recipes, I think I was able to make something just as sweet. No matter if or how you celebrate Valentine’s day, it’s a wonderful excuse to have a bit of fun baking and share with the ones you care about. If you are looking for a dessert with a warm, chocolatey center to melt that special someone’s (or your own) heart, look no further!
