Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Is shortbread really that easy? Just butter, flour, and sugar? Wow! This opens up a whole new world of baking possibilities! lol The way you decorate them can elevate them, like dipping half in chocolate.

looking for recipe for molassis cookies that were flat and mom used egg wash for glazed top

looking for a recipe for a cooking that used crackers that aired this past week on wsbt


The hotel cookies are the best. I have made them several times and everyone LOVES them and wants the recipe. If you have someone in your house that is not a huge chocolate lover, seperate the batter and put less chocolate chips in. That is not me, that is my husband who requests less chocolate chips!

awesome!! thank you so much :)

The secret is using a drinking straw to make space for that oh-so-sweet jelly that fills the center! Top these with powdered or cinnamon sugar, and let the family get their fingers a little sticky!
