chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes

These may not sound all that exciting, but I always fall for the dessert surprise in disguise.  I was shocked to discover that both the cupcake and the frosting taste EXACTLY (IMHO) like chocolate chip cookie dough. They are supposed to be stuffed with cookie dough balls, but if that’s too much for you, they are equally delicious without.  Really, they were much, much tastier than I had anticipated. Highly recommend to any chocolate chip cookie dough fans!!!

double white chocolate and pretzel peanut butter cookies

Have you ever had white chocolate melted into your cookie dough before?  Because I haven’t, and it was amazing.  I absolutely love the texture of these cookies – moist and chewy, but also almost crumbly.  I hope I’m using the right descriptive words.  Let me just say that these are genuinely delicious and a new favorite.  Another fabulous salty/sweet combo, sure to satisfy both cravings.  Make them nice and big, and then have two or three with lots of milk on a Sunday afternoon.  That’s what I just did, and I’m a happy, happy girl.

chocolate covered cherry cookies

The moment I saw these I knew I had to make them.  Chocolate covered cherries in cookie form?  YES!  They were festive, different, easy, and delish.  Fun new twist for a cookie exchange this season.  Here’s the only thing, personally I would much prefer a fudgyer (that does not look right, is that a word?) cookie, so next time I’m going to try these cookie/brownie recipe from my Marshmallow Brownie Bites.  That’s just me, but I still found every bite of these very tasty and really enjoyed sharing them!

pumpkin whoopie pies (with maple cream-cheese filling)

PUMPKIN!!!  I’ve made a lot of pumpkin treats this fall, but haven’t had the time or patience for good photos.  These whoopie pies were so fun (not to mention super moist and full of flavor), I took the recipe from brown-eyed baker and then threw a few butterscotch chips into some, chocolate chips into others.  All were tasty, but chocolate was the favorite.  But then again, when is chocolate not the favorite in any given situation?  (Nevermind, chocolate ice cream, not a favorite.)  Anyway, give these a try, see what you like best.  If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you’d be just fine without any chips at all.

oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies

More cookies!  Don’t worry, I’ll change it up next week when I’ve got a birthday, can’t wait to try a new cake recipe.  (Haven’t decided on one yet, so I’m open to any ideas!!)

But as for these, I’d been drooling as I watched them circulate the blogosphere for months!  Couldn’t wait to try them, but I had to get my hands on some double stuff Oreos first.   You know, I’m not a big fan of the plain, ol’ Oreo cookie (there are so many other things I’d rather have for the calories), but when they are paired with something else, magic happens.  Bring on the Oreo cheesecake, the Oreo dirt dessert, and of course the cookies-n-cream ice cream  and shakes.   See?  Magic!!

I finally got to make these to share at my boys’ cub scout meeting.  (They just started and they are all so cute by the way.  What a great excuse for me to try a new recipe every week!) I knew they’d be so fun for kids, and who else could handle this much sugar than a bunch of high energy 8-10 year old boys?  Needless to say, they were a hit.

everything cookies

First, sorry for the LONG delay since the last post.  Ashley and I have both been in transition.  She between jobs and apartments (although still in Brooklyn), and I across the ocean.  My family is finally starting  to settle back into life in the states (Northern Virginia to be exact), as plain ‘ol Americans.  Anyway, despite our best efforts, we’ve both still got what surely qualify as tiny kitchens.

OK, explanations and apologies over, now on to the treats!!!  I know, I know, these cookies aren’t quite as flashy as our usual posts, but TRUST ME, they are so worthy!  I absolutely love the consistency, unlike anything I’ve had before, it must be the combo of oil and butter, doesn’t that sound healthy?  But who cares?  Trust me, they’re worth every bite.  And besides, they’ve got oatmeal, cornflakes, and nuts… all good things!  I’m sure it all balances out in the end.  I found these over at Lovin’ From the Oven over a year ago, and despite the glaring absence of anything chocolate, something about her description made me want to give them a try.  So, so glad I did.  If you need a little change from your favorite chocolate chippers, definitely make and share these cookies.  Yumzo!
