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.

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!

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 I thought I would make a special post and share a recipe I originally made back in college.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!

Butter Cut-Out Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! This morning I’d like to share my Grandma’s butter cookie recipe. It’s another Christmas classic that is requested every year by at least one family member, much to my mother’s chagrin. I, however, always loved rolling out and decorating these cookies over the holidays. I have been known to break this recipe out for any sort of holiday and season.

Peanut Blossoms

Good Morning and Happy Monday! Today’s festive recipe will hopefully make the holiday baking bug start to bloom. That’s right, we’re making peanut blossoms today. These cookies are one of the few Christmas cookie staples my family make each year. The first dozen of peanut blossoms never lasted long because everyone wanted a cookie right out of the oven. The chocolate was perfectly melted over a wonderfully warm peanut butter cookie. What’s better than that?

Browned Butter Chocolate Bar Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to take a step back this week and just make some cookies. These are good for those cosy days that you really want to take some time out and make a little something sweet. From browning the butter to chopping up the chocolate, it’s all about slowing down. These have the warm kind of sweetness that caramel has from the browned butter.
