I've mentioned before how my grandma used to bake walnut oatmeal raisin cookies for my grandpa every week. She stored them in the freezer in a plastic container with a lid, each layer separated by a piece of waxed paper, and they tasted every bit as good as when they were fresh baked after a […]

How an Italian cookie became a Polish family tradition is beyond me... So I scoured the Internet for a pizzelle recipe and using several different sites created one that sounded like […]

Oh my goodness -- it's a good thing the second tray of these Toasted Almond Crisp Cookies didn't turn out, because I cannot. stop. eating. them! I started with this Lace Cookies recipe, thinking I'd like to substitute toasted almonds for the pecans. After toasting the almonds and readying my dough ingredients, I realized that […]
