Yep, this is the second cookie idea which I decided to manifest this week. Years and years ago I found a recipe in a magazine for pecan bars and made them for Christmas goody tins a couple times. They were tasty, but made in a jelly-roll pan. Perhaps readers are acquainted with the fact that … More New! Pecan Pie Cookies
My mother is excited by this news. She’s a big fan of my mini-teacakes and peanut butter and will be the first recipient and tester of the small batch of this cookie which I dreamed up yesterday. She will have to wait until U.S.P.S. delivers the goodies on Tuesday but still is sure that the … More Easter Bunny brings New! Peanut Butter Mini Teacakes
Because of the risks associated with socializing for someone my age and the country-wide measures finally being taken to flatten the risk curve, I find myself doing more of what I do to relieve stress: baking. Last night I was chatting with my mother on the phone and she mentioned that she’d finished off the … More New! Maple Mini Teacakes & Maple Butter Cookies
Stressed out? Try a nice brisk walk in the morning light and then bake the rest of the day. I’m calling it early St. Patrick’s Day gift pack for Mother and a couple other cookie testers. I was already on an “orange kick” a couple days ago when the decision was made after a phone … More New! Orange Pistachio Butter Cookies! Orange Minis! Mint Candy Brownies!

I decided to try it with my own butter cookie recipe and see what happens. Well, it worked and the cookies? … More New! Orange Butter Cookies
Valentine’s Day is this week and just when I was at the grocers thinking about which cookies to make and mail to Mother for the holiday, I saw that Hershey’s has a new offering complete with “Buy-Me” hearts on a pink package. I couldn’t resist as my thoughts went quickly to a new Snick even … More 2 New! Mocha Snicks with Lava Cake Kisses & Chocolate Mini Teacakes
I’m not embarassed. I like Russians. I make some type of Russian Tea Cakes every year during the Christmas bake, miniature in size. I’m very fond of Russian Tea Cakes and so are all those who find some in their goody tins. They have other names to other bakers. I must thank my cousin in … More New! Cinnamon Mini Teacakes
Who doesn’t want something chocolate and delicious in the Christmas goody box besides fudge? This year I made chocolate fudge with no nuts, but the brownies are another story. Rocky Road brownies are “just” brownies with added marshmallows, chips and nuts either in or on the cookie. Some folks like no nuts, some like walnuts, … More Rocky Road Brownies with Roasted Pecans
Making a short list of a few goodies to be made for a very short list of people this year for Christmas, I decided to add Spritz because it’s not only a tasty bite of buttery crispness, but one of those cookies which the children have fun decorating and so we did. It’s also a … More In the kitchen with juliyya: Spritz!
A lovely neighborhood merchant asked me several days ago what I would be doing for Thanksgiving. I just shrugged and said that I am alone. She told me that she invites some folks who do not have family and asked me if that included me. Nope, I have family, but my daughter lives in London … More New!
