Chocolate-Pistachio Sandwich Cookies

Is it weird that I’m super into pistachios? Pistachios are not trendy. They are not “having a moment.” They are not on anyone’s pop culture radar. Bacon? Bacon is still the foodie’s darling. Salted caramel is still going strong. Macarons are the new cupcake, and cupcakes are the old cupcake, which is to say: still…

Moon Pie Pie

Say hello to Moon Pie Pie. No, that’s not a typo, and no, I didn’t keyboard-stutter. Moon Pie Pie is the name of the new dessert I came up with last week, a crazy cookie-candy-pie hybrid. See, it’s a pie…with all the ingredients of classic moon pies. Ya dig?  Silly name, serious taste. Get on…

Caramel Shortbread Squares

I’m not much for storebought candy bars, but when I do have my choice of the prepackaged stuff, I usually go for a Twix. I like the shortbread/caramel/chocolate combination (and let’s petition for a dark chocolate-only policy, thankyouverymuch) and I like how light and crispy the bar is, as opposed to some of its heftier…

Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

We bought our Christmas tree this past weekend! Now my house is officially 73% cheerier, 45% good-smellier, 26% baby-endangeringer, and 100% pine-needlier than it was before. I love, love, love walking into the front room and seeing our tree decked out with glowing lights and sparkling ornaments. If there was a way to hug the…

Sugar Cookie Pinwheels

Happy Halloween! You may be wondering why I’m sharing a Halloween cookie with you today, when you have next to no chance of actually making them on Halloween. Well, friends, it’s call “procrastination” and “poor time management.” Stick around awhile and you’ll find plenty of both. On the bright side, these sugar pinwheel cookies don’t…

Truffle-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the perks-slash-problems of having a job that involves making candy at home is that, at the end of the day, I end up with a lot of candy at home. (Duh.) It’s awesome because I love eating sweets, but it’s also dangerous, because: see above. Some weeks I do a good job of…

Mounds Cookies (Coconut-Filled Chocolate Cookies)

I have a killer cookie recipe to share with you today. But first, a short diversion. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard the Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe” about a million more times than you’ve ever wanted to. I don’t know what sorcery goes into making a fiercely annoying…
