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.

Cocoa Ginger Cookies with Matcha Buttercream

img_6007

I love matcha. I am always up for a good matcha latte, smoothie or ice cream; I just love the fresh, subtle green tea flavour it brings to the table. Of course my absolute favourite way to consume matcha is when it’s been added to a homemade baked goodie of some sort – particularly when said baked goodie includes chocolate in some shape or form, because chocolate & matcha are pretty much a match made in flavour heaven.

So when Aiya America Matcha reached out to me to partner up for a recipe post with their Cooking Grade Matcha – I couldn’t wait to bake up something chocolatey & delicious with their matcha!

Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Lately it seems like I find myself facing very serious baking dilemmas on an increasingly regular basis. Do you ever have this problem? Baking dilemma problems?

Now by baking dilemmas, I don’t mean the question of “to bake, or not to bake?” – because let’s be honest, when faced with that question, I will always very emphatically choose “to bake!”

No, no for me, my baking dilemmas are more a consequence of my ridiculously indecisive nature, which usually makes it near impossible for me to decide exactly what it is that I actually want to bake in a given day – or more importantly, what I want to eat.

Typically my baking dilemmas go a little something like this… “should I bake cupcakes or a layer cake?”; “vanilla or chocolate?”; “pie or cobbler?” “scones or muffins?” … you get the idea.

Recently during one of my episodes of said baking dilemmas, I was debating whether I should make cookies or brownies – and having a seriously hard time. I mean can you blame me? Honestly, sometimes it’s just pure torture trying to decide between two options that are each so delicious.

Then suddenly it hit me, that there was no good reason for me to have to choose – so I didn’t and the result; These Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies… Best. Decision. Ever.

I’m so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to get the recipe for these Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies! Click here and get the recipe!

Butterscotch Stuffed Brown Butter Skillet Cookie

IMG_9460

I don’t know about you, but when I take a tray of fresh cookies out of the oven, I can usually only wait all of about five seconds before feeling an uncontrollable need to eat one immediately.

Some might say I have absolutely no self control, {and that’s definitely part of it}, but I prefer to think of it as just having good sense. Because I mean honestly, there really is nothing quite like warm homemade cookies, that are still ooey, gooey, fresh from the oven. Are we on the same page here….?

Alright then you’re going to love this recipe just as much as I do, because essentially it’s a giant cookie that you can eat straight out of the pan, while it’s still hot from the oven…. aka the best damn thing ever. Oh and did I mention that its a cookie that is made with brown butter…? So yeah, it really is just the bees knees 😀

I’m so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to share the recipe for this Butterscotch Stuffed Brown Butter Skillet Cookie! So if you are about ready to lick your computer screen like I am, pop on over to their website via this link here and get the recipe! 

Happy baking lovelies <3 <3

Happy Tuesday friendlies! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start and that wherever you are in the world, it is as sunny and beautiful as it has been in Vancouver the last couple of days! I’m super excited to share this cookie recipe with you all today, so bear with me while I share a little story…

Alright so, acouple days ago I was perusing the bulk foods aisle at the grocery store – because this is pretty much my aisle of heaven, and where I spend a lot of my grocery shopping time– when I noticed something amazing… Macadamia nuts were on sale! Say whattt!?!?

Now I don’t know what the situation with macadamia nuts is in other parts of the world – but here in Vancouver, sales on macadamia nuts basically never happen; like it’s pretty much unheard of – so you can understand my excitement when I noticed they were on sale.
