Cheesecake Cookies

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 with chocolate

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).…

ice box sugar cookies

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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…

cranberry white chocolate rosemary cookies with decas cranberries

Sunday, November 20, 2016

I’m very happy with how these cookies turned out – they are a riff on an oatmeal cookie found in my book, and the rosemary adds so much flavor. They are a perfect addition to your holiday table – stacked up next to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, or piled high on a plate next to the tree, waiting for Santa. Decas Cranberry Products, Inc. just-released premium quality Cooking…

holiday cut-out cookies

Thursday, December 11, 2014

This past weekend the kids and I headed to my sister’s house for a cookie decorating party. It was really a few hours to eat cookie dough and spill sprinkles all over Auntie’s floor, but we all sure had fun anyway. This December has been rather odd for me; our house troubles are still ongoing (we are now currently gutting our entire basement and can’t run our furnace…
