Chocolate Dipped Lime Cardamom Cookies

When it is hot out I find lime to be most refreshing. Even in cookie form, lime flavored treats seem to taste the best when the temperature outside starts to soar.  We are in the middle of a heat wave in the Dallas area, so I am all about refreshing at the moment.  Since I was making cookies with lime I decided to add a little cardamom to the cookies.  The floral citrus flavor of cardamom punches up both the flavor and the aroma of...

Golden Syrup Oatmeal Chip Cookies

It has been a little while since I made a batch of cookies, and it has also been a while since I used my beloved Golden Syrup.  Quel nightmare! So, when the inevitable cookie craving struck the other day I went directly to the pantry to see what was available.  I had already decided on Golden Syrup, and I had some fresh oatmeal, so that was going in.  I also had part of a bag of chocolate chips.  Things were looking pretty good for...

Butter Cut-Out Cookies

First, HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!  Second, I need to apologize to you all.

Brown Butter Sour Cream Cookies

So, I am not very good when it comes to grocery lists. I often forget that I already have something and end up buying it a second time.  This happened a few days ago.  While at the store, buying the ingredients I needed for some lovely Chicken Enchiladas with Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce (recipe coming up on Wednesday next week), I forgot I already had a pint of sour cream at home and bought a second.  When I got home and saw that I...

Orange Almond Chocolate Cookies

This cookie is not what I set out to make.    This was supposed to be a simple almond cookie.  I was craving almond cookies last week and decided to come up with a recipe that incorporated ground almonds into the cookie for some texture.  Things went astray when I saw a lonely orange sitting on my counter.   It only went further off track when I remembered I had a bag of chocolate disks from New York in my pantry.   These cookies are...

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love old family recipes.  I also love cookies. My mom makes some pretty fantastic oatmeal cookies.  They are my grandmother’s recipe, handed down on a butter stained note card, and they are lovely.  Crisp throughout with a hint of cinnamon and a lovely nubby texture makes them instantly craveable.  They are mom’s go-to cookie and the most frequent dessert offering at her house.  In fact, there is almost always a batch of...
