Browned Butter and Bacon plus delicious chocolatey goodness….
I found under the “On his day” thingy on Facebook, a recipe I posted several years ago for bacon and chocolate chip cookies… so I decided to try it… however, instead of following the recipe I had found, I modified my own cookie recipe and this is what I got… which I have been told is delicious. Continue reading
For some bizarre reason I feel compelled to perfect a cookie recipe. The bizarre part is that I don’t really eat cookies very often (except Ginger Snaps.. see that post for details…)
Long story short, I like baking stuff and taking it to my friends (this is how I buy all your love, obviously…) And cookies are delicious. Seriously delicious. Continue reading
People like cookies. It’s a fact. Even those with gluten issues. This is a variation of the easiest recipes EVER… the regular recipe has only 3 ingredients, but I decided to chocolate this up a bit… My ex husband has celiac disease and he was coming over to visit the kids and so I made some gluten free cookies AS I AM THE NICEST EX WIFE IN THE WORLD. Continue reading
I have a real thing for Ginger cookies. In fact, I made a whole bunch of cookies recently and then couldn’t get to sleep because I ate about 6 Ginger cookies and the sugar kept me up. So, yeah, parents who say that sugar doesn’t wire a kid up… YOU ARE WRONG. Continue reading
I made the cookies using shortening and margarine and butter. Because I was filling the cookies with caramel, I used shortening as it has a higher melting point so I thought it would hold the caramel better. Cookies were good, however…. RE-made with butter and they are much better (because I love butter.) Use whichever suits you! I’ve tweaked the recipe… this is the best version yet. Continue reading
So I decided to make some cookies. For some reason I became somewhat obsessed with putting caramel into cookies and wanted to try some stuff… and… ended up making a boatload of cookies.
These ones are chocolate chocolate chip with caramel inside and sea salt. I made these using “golden shortening”… in the States they call it butter flavoured, but in Canada you can’t say that. Blah blah blah. Continue reading
One of the things I’m doing with my baking is remaking recipes (sometimes, not all) to be vegetarian or vegan and many of the desserts I’ve modified to be low sugar.
I have a vegetarian niece, a vegan sister, a lactose intolerant daughter and a boyfriend with diabetes. So, in some recipes I’ve offered modifications. THIS is the delicious result of modifications… and I must get them out of my house as soon as possible or I will eat them ALL. Continue reading
Marc Thomas was diagnosed as diabetic last year and so I’ve tried to do some low or non sugar stuff. My sister is a vegan and my niece a vegetarian so I take that into consideration at times. And my daughter is lactose intolerant (which means she TRIES not to eat it as it’s not great for her but still sometimes does….) ANYWAY, I’ve been making these cookies for years and they are scrumptious. Needless to say, the full fat omnivore version is the tastiest (IN MY OPINION) however, they are very good with substitutions… Continue reading
I remember putting it aside as it originally had butterscotch chips in it and my husband at the time (that makes it sound like I’ve had a bunch, doesn’t it? All Liz Taylor like and stuff. Hmm I doubt she baked much…) ANYWAY, he loves butterscotch. Can’t remember if he liked these cookies though… Continue reading
