Egg Nog Cookies

We made these for Christmas a few year’s back, and loved them then, but hadn’t made them since. I’ve been trying out new recipes since then, but decided to make these again today. They’re super easy, and taste just like egg nog!! The holidays are nothing without egg nog right?! So why not in a cookie!! If you like egg nog, then definitely give this cookie a try, I’m sure you’ll like it as much as we do 🙂 I can’t find the exact recipe I have, but this one is the closest I found online…

Holiday Baking Part II

So…since the Pumpkin Cream Cheese bars were less then stellar, taste wise for us, I continued on the hunt for another bar recipe!! I came across this Chewy Peanut Butter Brownie recipe, and thought…how can you go wrong with peanut butter right? Never!! These were ridiculously delicious. Super peanut buttery flavour (mind you I doubled the peanut butter measurement :D). To describe it best, it tasted like a brownie shaped chewy peanut butter cookie. OMG doesn’t even cover it. Totally omnomnom-worthy!! If you love PB as much as we do, you’ll definitely love this recipe. It’s easy to make and bakes in about 30mins. This one’s definitely a keeper, for a quick sweet treat any time of year, and may be added to my holiday baking this year!!

Got The Holiday Baking Bug!!

On Monday I had the urge, to finally make some Christmas Spritz cookies. I’ve never made them before, so I thought I’d do a test run. They turned out pretty good!! They’re buttery and melt in your mouth…very omnomnom-worthy 🙂 I will have to bake them a few minutes less next time though, as 7 minutes seems too long for these particular cookies. I’ll also have to double up the flavouring, as I didn’t taste it at all. Otherwise, this recipe is a keeper!!

Another test run I did on Tuesday, was for this recipe, for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars. I was really excited to try these, as the combination sounds super nummy!! Unfortunately, for me, it just didn’t cut it. It wasn’t as flavourful as I thought it would be. I may try these again, in an 8×8 pan, instead of the 9×13 I used. For now though it’s in the maybe pile, and I’m still on the hunt, for a dessert bar recipe to make for Christmas!!

Baking Season is Here…Hooray!!

As Christmas creeps every closer, my baking bug kicks into over drive, and my mind races trying to figure out what to make this year. I came across a Fudge Crinkle cookie recipe, and knew I had to give it a try. Now, being the naive baker that I apparently am, I had NO idea that you could use cake mix to make cookies. I…KNOW…I was like ‘whaaaa?’ too!! You definitely can, and the cookies that come out of it, are super nummy!! They’re soft and not hard or crispy (unless you overbake)…BONUS 😀 The photo above is from the first batch I made, for my hubby to take to work, as gifts for his bosses and friends. They came out good, but the second batch I made for Christmas baking gifts for family, looked MUCH prettier with the use of ganulated sugar. I TOTALLY recommend rolling them in granulated sugar – hands down. I also added 1/2 a cup, of peanut butter chips, to bump up the numminess factor 😀 They’re also REALLY quick and easy (only 4 ingredients) to make too, so once you’re used to making them, you’ll be munching on them within 15-20mins…omnomnom.
