S’mores Cookies

s'mores cookies with marshmallows and chocolate chips

The original concept for these s’mores cookies was something Chef Baby came up with called “vanilla explosion cookies”, which involved lots of vanilla extract plus vanilla chips. But then I told him vanilla chips do not exist (although white chocolate chips are kind of like vanilla chips, but white chocolate chips are terrible in my…

Salty Cashew-Coconut Cookies

I wanted a cookie that reminded me of a PayDay bar because those are one of the best candy bars ever invented. And in fact you could probably use roasted salted peanuts here in this recipe just fine but I haven’t tried it because I’m a FANCY GIRL NOW and my peanuts are cashews. (Actually,…

Fresh Cranberry Cookies

Fresh cranberry cookies with oats, pecans, chocolate chips and fresh cranberries kind of remind me of the best muesli cereal, but in a cookie form

These cookies are HUGE. I mean, seriously. Okay, not as huge as a cookie cake, but that’s like a whole ‘nother thing. That you get at the mall. That’s covered in icing and probably they misspelled your name. In fact, cookie cakes SUCK compared to these giant cherry chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are perfect.

Memorial Oatmeal Cookies

James’s memorial service is tonight. I’m making food for it today. He loved cookies; I think, because he himself was kind of like a cookie.
