• 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.    …

  • Browned Butter and Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

      How did y’all celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day? I made three batches of chocolate chip cookies this weekend and I made this recipe twice! On a side note, we ran out of clean spoons, that’s how much taste testing happened over here.     On an even further sidetrack, I go back to work today and I’m not jumping up and down excited about having to wake up to my alarm. But I do have cookies for the hubby and I to share with our coworkers to make our transition a little bit easier.     These are currently our favorite chocolate chip variety and the hubby requests them anytime I…

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

    As I’m typing this post I’m realizing this is the third chocolate chip recipe I’ve posted. I think it’s safe to say that we have a slight chocolate chip obsession at our house! When I made this over the weekend the hubby said that he had forgotten how much he liked it!   For the longest time, I wasn’t a fan of cookie cakes, I thought most of them were hard and bland. But after trying several recipes without success, I found this one and didn’t look back. This cookie cake is soft and chewy because of the brown sugar, cornstarch, and extra egg yolk.     One of the best things about this…

  • Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

    If there is one cookie I associate with my childhood, it’s this one. Every time we wanted to bake cookies my mom would pull out her stained recipe card for Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies. While the original is still classically delicious, over the years I’ve made a couple of updates. One of the most noticeable updates was to cut the recipe in half.     My favorite part of these chocolate chip cookies is definitely the cinnamon. Cinnamon is one of those spices that I buy in bulk. I also like to mix it up and add multiple types of chocolate chips. I always use semi-sweet and dark, but for the third kind…
