Toasted Pecan Brown Sugar Cookies

Happy December!

Holy smokes it’s December guys… can you believe it!? I swear just yesterday it was October and now here we are approaching mid-December, and it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been around these parts to share a recipe with you lovely people.

Of course it most likely feels like “forever”, because it has been a long time since I shared a recipe with you guys. It’s been one of those months where I just bake everything on a whim, without writing anything down, all the while thinking to myself “yes of course I will remember this recipe…” And then being sadly disappointed when my memory fails me two weeks later. Note to self: MUST WRITE ALL RECIPES DOWN AS I MAKE THEM.

Jumbo Ginger Crackle Cookies

Few things get me more excited than when I walk into a new bakery only to discover that among their line up of gorgeous baked goods, they have giant, chewy ginger cookies for sale.

That probably sounds a bit strange to a few of you – that I could get so excited over something as simple as a ginger cookie; But if there is one thing that I simply cannot resist in life, it’s a good ginger cookie. No matter what the circumstance, if I sniff out a good ginger cookie in my travels, you better bet that I will be buying one – okay let’s be real, I will most likely be buying two or three. I will never pass up a good, crackly ginger cookie. Who’s with me on this?

Vanilla Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

You guys… Vanilla. Peanut Butter. Protein. Cookies. You just know it’s going to be a good day when your day starts with one of these bad boys, amiright?

I have to be honest – I have never been a big fan of protein powders. I think I have tried just about every brand / flavour available to me, and I have never been able to find one that I enjoy. I always find that they either just taste plain awful, or they taste okay at first, but then have a funky aftertaste, or a gritty texture or they are loaded with a bunch of ingredients that I’m really not comfortable putting in my body.

So when I tried Coast Protein Powders, I was absolutely blown away by not only by the nutritional info, but more so by how amazingly delicious they tasted. No weird aftertaste, no gritty texture. My life is totally changed.

Salted Double Chocolate Marshmallow Pretzel Cookies

I realized the other day that somehow I managed to go the entire summer without s’mores-ifying anything. So because I was pretty sure that’s a major faux-pas in the food blogging universe – but mostly because I love myself, and  I just really wanted chocolate cookies with a borderline excessive amount of chocolate, marshmallows, pretzels and sea salt in them – I decided to bake up a batch of these monsters. #selflove

PS. “s’mores-ifying” is not a word at all, but considering there isn’t a proper verb in the English language for the popular act of turning regular baked goods into delicious s’mores concoctions, I decided I would make one up myself…

Chocolate Espresso Sugar Cookies

There is something so special about the simplicity of a basic sugar cookie. Do you know what I mean? I often find myself fantasizing about their chewy centers, crisp edges, and crackly tops…

Such was the case this morning when I had a sudden hankering for a good sugar cookie – but not just any sugar cookie; One that is loaded with chocolate and packing a necessary dose of caffeine for a Wednesday morning. Such is the story of how these Chocolate Espresso Cookies were born. It’s a bit of a boring story, but that’s okay becayse these cookies are anything but boring.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Have you ever made homemade dulce de leche? It’s a game changer – and actually quite an easy game changer when you make it with a can of sweetened condensed milk.

To be perfectly honest, I can eat dulce de leche just straight from the jar. It’s that good. But pair it with a chewy chocolate chip cookie & you will be forever changed.

Is this chocolate chip cookie cake a little over the top? Perhaps. But if there is one thing I know for sure; it’s that if this cookie cake is considered wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

You can find the recipe for this Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake can be found on the Tastes of Lizzy T website

Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cookies

You guys… these cookies. I die.

I think you guys know we well enough now to know that I am a sucker for a cookie with a crackly top – like the very sight of crackly cookies makes me weak in the knees. So needless to say these cookies are pretty much what dreams are made of for me.

Crisp crackly edges, with a gooey, chewy, brownie-like texture on the inside; these cookies are simply too good to stop at one… or two, or three… okay you get the picture. So I basically ate a whole tray of these cookies – but they were beyond delicious so what’s the problem?

Giant Crackly Chocolate Chip Cookies

What exactly is it about giant, crackly topped chocolate chip cookies that makes them so irresistible ? Is it simply because at the end of the day we eat with our eyes, and the crackles are just so pretty that we can’t help but want to bite into them as soon as humanly possibly? Or is it because we know that lurking just beneath that gorgeous crisp crackle is a soft, chewy cookie, studded with ooey, gooey chocolate and an overall flavour that tastes like childhood?

I think for me it would have to be the latter explanation; nostalgia never fails to capture my heart when it comes to homemade treats.

Holiday Chocolate Bark Madness!

Okay so I may have gotten a little carried away with the Chocolate Bark this year… and by “a little” I mean a lot. It started off with just one batch of delicious bark, and then I just couldn’t stop thinking of all the different flavour combinations and all the different possibilities of deliciousness. Before I knew it, my kitchen counters were literally covered in different flavours of chocolate bark; each amazingly delicious in their own unique ways.
