I used to be a shortbread purist. I would only ever make pure, simple, unadulterated shortbread cookies until one day I was introduced to the wonder that is Mrs. Millard’s Toffee Shortbread.
These walnut cardamom crescents opened by mind to the aromatic wonders of cardamom. It was not a spice I had paid much attention to until I made these cookies and then I was hooked.
These spiced chai tea snowflake cookies are light, aromatic, and will fill you with the warm and fuzzies with every bite you take. They get just a hint of sweetness from their decorative iced snowflakes, and pair perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee.
What do you get when you take a buttery shortbread cookie and smother it with rich caramel and milk chocolate? Heaven…Although I’ve also heard them referred to as Twix Cookies.
There’s no better way to spend a cold, rainy afternoon, than cozying up with a warm blanket, a pot of tea, and a side of these delicate yet fragrant Earl Grey tea cookies.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Wouldn’t it be great to get drunk off of chocolate?” Well then, these boozy chocolate bourbon balls were made just for you!
Chocolate crinkles, also known as crackles, have been a staple in my Christmas baking for a long time. I love the way the dark chocolate of the cookie contrasts against the dusting of white icing sugar.
I believe the original name of this recipe refers to these cookies as “big soft ginger cookies”, but I prefer to call them ginger sparkles. Their thin, sugary coating makes them glitter in the light, making them not only beautiful, but delicious!
The holidays are upon us, and if you know me at all, you’ll realize what that means. It has nothing to do with being festive or merry, or taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of the season. It means it’s time to bake an obscene amount of cookies. Seriously. A ridiculous amount. In a single weekend.
These holiday rice krispie treats are simple, fast, and loaded with childhood nostalgia. They were one of my favourite treats growing up, and even though I’ve made them dozens of times, I still have to look up a recipe to remember what ratio of marshmallows to Rice Krispies to use.
