• Turtle Chip Cookies

      Welcome back for recipe #2 of Sam’s Christmas Treats the 2017 edition! We are staying with the theme of Chocolate and Caramel that started with the  Twix cookies I posted last week. Have you tried them yet?     The holiday baking section at my grocery store sucked me in and I left with these Caramel chips and some peppermint bark chips, but that’s a recipe for another day. Now these caramel chips say new and not limited edition, so fingers crossed they carry them year round.     These cookies start with your basic chocolate chip cookie ingredients like butter, sugar, and lots of brown sugar. If you can’t…

  • Twix Cookies [Chocolate and Caramel Shortbread Thumbprints]

    Tis the season for baking cookies. Lots and lots of cookies.   It’s time for Sam’s Christmas Treats year two! I am very excited about the recipes I have to share with you this year. Today is recipe #1 and it’s inspired by one of our favorite candy bars. These cookies start with a soft and buttery shortbread cookie that has a puddle of creamy caramel and is topped with milk chocolate.     The cookie is made from six ingredients that should already be in your kitchen. I know just using the egg yolks sounds wasteful, but don’t throw out the whites, save them for your next omelet.  …

We’re combining simple ingredients and a couple steps + chilling time to make cookies that are perfect for any fall or Halloween themed party!

These cookies are made with white chocolate chips and topped with candy corn and are perfect to satisfy your…

  • Spring Cookie Dough [DO Edible Cookie Dough Copycat Recipe]

      I know there are a lot of cookie dough options here on the blog and all I can say is my hubby is obsessed with cookie dough and I’ve caught the bug. Now don’t get me wrong, I still love a good chocolate brownie or key lime pie, but sometimes you need something simple like cookie dough.   Are you a cookie dough lover or hater? Now before you leave me a comment about how it’s not safe to eat cookie dough, raw eggs, and all of that jazz. Today I’m talking about edible cookie dough. That is cookie dough that is specifically made for eating raw and does not…

  • Cookies and Cream Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

    Y’all, I am so excited to share these cookies with you today! Variations of these Cookies and Cream cookies were all over the internet last year, I saw them on at least 4 different blogs. I knew if that many people were talking about them and loving them that I needed to try them too!     You start with a basic cookie dough batter and sub cream cheese for some of the butter and instant milk powder for some of the flour. These changes make the cookies moist and rich. I’ll admit that I had some reservations about putting store-bought cookies, even though they were Oreos, inside my homemade…

  • White Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles

    Today I’m sharing the second recipe for Sam’s Holiday Treats. These White Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles started with a traditional Snickerdoodle made from the recipe I grew up enjoying every Christmas and then we add the magic ingredient…white chocolate chips and you have our new favorite way to enjoy Snickerdoodles!     Traditionally Snickerdoodles are made with cream of tartar. I don’t know about you, but I never have cream of tartar on hand and I bet you don’t either. So I’ve used baking powder to replace the cream of tartar and baking soda the recipe originally called for.     Soft, chewy, and covered with a tasty cinnamon and sugar mixture. These…

  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    I have a confession to make…I like raisins and I love Oatmeal Raisin cookies! I feel like you either love raisins or you hate them and my husband, who is the main taste-tester around our house, doesn’t like them. I guess that’s just more proof that opposites attract.     I’ve been craving Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for months and the raisins that have been sitting in my pantry have been mocking me. I finally had the chance to make some over the weekend and I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. The recipe for these cookies is based off of an Oatmeal Cookies recipe from my husband’s mom. I changed up a few…

  • Oatmeal Creme Pies

      I have a love of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies that goes back to my childhood and I was so excited when I found this recipe. While these cookies aren’t an exact replica, they definitely satisfy my Oatmeal Creme Pie loving sweet tooth.     These Oatmeal Creme Pies are soft, chewy and have just a hint of molasses. Two tender oatmeal cookies are filled with a delicious and buttery creme filling, turning them into Oatmeal Creme Pies. Instead of a marshmallow filling, we use a simple creme filling consisting of butter, cream, and sugar. This is good news for you marshmallow haters out there. Yes, sis, I’m looking at you.    …
