Pilgrim Hat Cookies

I have one dessert that has been a tradition in my house for about the past three years. I wish I had found the idea when my boys were little, but it was just in time to make for my grandkiddos. Everyone enjoys them, no matter their age. The original recipe comes from Taste of Home. PILGRIM HAT COOKIES 1 cup vanilla frosting (I use store bought or homemade) 7 drops yellow food coloring 32 miniature peanut butter cups 1 package fudge-striped {Read More}

Cake Mix Cookies

Be your own creative genius by using a basic recipe for cookies that uses a cake mix. You choose the flavor cake mix, add the eggs and shortening plus your choice of add-ins (1 to 1 and 1/2 cups). The variations are endless. Think white cake mix with red M&M’s for Valentine’s Day or chocolate cake mix with mint chocolate chips for St. Patrick’s Day. Then of course there’s the variety you could make with peanut butter chips or toffee {Read More}

Oreo Balls

Oreo Balls have always been my go-to dessert for parties or gatherings. After making 400 for our wedding favors, I thought I would never make them again, but that didn’t happen because, before I knew it, they were being requested by family and friends. These don’t rank high on the healthy rating scale, but they sure are easy to make and delicious! 1-16 oz package Oreos, crushed 1-8 oz package cream cheese, softened 1 package of chocolate almond bark optional: {Read More}

Better-For-You Oatmeal Cookies

I grew up on cookies made from Better Homes and Gardens recipes. That old pink gingham cookbook was a staple at our house. Times have changed and my family is more health conscience. I wanted to present an old-fashioned favorite without all the unnecessary fats and sugars. So I tweaked that old book’s oatmeal cookie recipe. One of the joys of being an adult cook is that if you don’t like raisins, as I don’t, you simply omit them! The {Read More}

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies
