Crunchy chocolate cookies!

Today's cookie was.....

SUPER CRUNCHY lol.... It has a sort of crumbly texture.... Perfect for your tea in the morning, or if you're like me, hot chocolate. This sturdy little cookie will pack easily and surely make it in one piece on a cross country trip... And it will be soon. It will also be making its way across the street and a few hours down the coast line to friends in Southern California.

Buttery Pecan Crisps

Hey all! 

Today's cookie was a buttery pecan crisp! It melts in your mouth and you can taste the butter Mmmm and who doesn't like butter!? Tonight was super cold, so it seemed only natural to make a cookie that would fill the air with its heavenly aroma.... Toasted pecans and butter coming together for this delicate little treat.

Blackberry Macaroons [real]

Hey all!

I have had this obsession with berry fillings lately... this is a blackberry filling. I tried to color these lavender, however as you can tell its a very pale lavender at best... Next time around i'll go add a drop or two more to the batter, which is white and when it cooks you assume it will come out the same color... but when you bake you ALWAYS loose color _-_ oi vey! So... in true form they lost color, and I burnt them a bit, WHICH IS REALLY EASY TO DO(if you didn't know haha) and they lost even more color... Next time around it should be better... Also did you know free handing macaroon shells is a skill all it's own, all my shells are different sizes... I swore they looked the same on the pan.

Pumpkin Pie Macaroons [real]

Hello everyone!

I made some pumpkin pie macaroons this year... I was feeling the Thanksgiving spirit and got to work on something new but still screamed holidays! I came up with a filling that tasted just like a pumpkin pie cloud.... THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT MACAROONS... and I was SO worried that they would not have feet (that's the little bubbly part at the bottom) However to my surprise they rose! I was ecstatic!!!! I suppose the thing I haven't mentioned is that, I have been reading anything and everything about macaroons for MONTHS, and sadly that's not an exaggeration. I heard so many scary stories about messing them up that I didn't want to fail at something so beautiful and delicate.

All and all it was a success and I'm glad I got over my jitters and went for it, now I feel like I caught a bug; I'm hooked! What macaroon can I make next!?
