Neapolitan Cookies #70

Wednesday, September 16, 2020
Neapolitan Cookies

This cookie was inspired by pastry chef Matthew Rice’s Neapolitan cookie, which I stumbled upon while searching Pinterest for the color pink. This cookie popped up, and I was intrigued by the pretty colors all rolled together. I headed straight to the kitchen. I used my sugar cookie (#6) as a base and came up with the version here. My children beg for this cookie, and it’s worth…

Cheesecake Cookies

This past week I was on Twin Cities Live for their 12 Days of Cookies that airs each year around the holidays. I made these cheesecake cookies, and wanted to include them here as well because they are so delicious. On the show I didn’t add the chocolate drizzle, but I made them again this weekend and liked the added touch. They are good either way (you could…

pan banging molasses espresso cookies

This recipe originally appeared in Bake From Scratch Vol 3, along with several other cookies recipes I contributed, and now is in the new Bake From Scratch Cookie Collection. Since I just finished the pan-banging chapter for my next book (coming out Fall 2020!), I thought I would include it here to celebrate. These cookies have the crisp, ripply edges and gooey, chocolate center my original recipe is…

pan-banging ginger molasses cookies

Saturday, December 9, 2017

If you follow along on Instagram, you know I’ve been working on a ginger-molasses version of my pan-banging cookies. I finally have the recipe for you, although I’m going to be completely honest – I’m so nervous to share it! I’m terrified you won’t love them as much as the chocolate chip version, so I’ve been obsessively  making them trying to get everything just right. I also know…

My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears, And true plain hearts do in the faces rest; Where can we find two better hemispheres, Without sharp North, without declining West? Whatever dies was not mixed equally; If our two loves be one, or thou and I Love so alike that none do slacken, none can die. -John Donne, The Good-Morrow This past week I found volumes A-F…

Hello! And apologies for the silence in this space. The quiet is a good thing – my summer has been lovely and busy; my family and I enjoying quality time together. So baking and blogging has been on the back burner for the better (that sentence had too many ‘b’ words and a terrible attempt at a kitchen pun, which means I’ve had way too much coffee today).…

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday, and survived the shopping madness that followed. After working retail for 10 holiday seasons in a row (with Black Friday and Christmas Eve always days I had to work), I can’t bring myself to venture out anywhere over the after-Thanksgiving weekend, so I enjoyed time inside my house, baking and reading. I have five books going right…
