Springtime Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

I get excited every season when the new baking products come out, and so far this year has not disappointed. Have you seen the new Nestle Springtime morsels? They come in 10 ounce bags and are a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips, yellow, and pink morsels (reminiscent of white chocolate). I substituted a bag into […]

Spooky Halloween Oreo Pudding Cookies

One of the things I love about Autumn are the variety of specialty snacks and baking goods that appear. On my last trip to Target, I couldn’t resist purchasing the orange creme centered Halloween Oreos and the Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate and orange colored morsels. So what to do with these delicious and eye-pleasing […]

S’more Oatmeal Pudding Chip Cookies II

I posted my recipe for s’more oatmeal pudding chip cookies back in July of 2012. Although those cookies turned out great, I feel there is always room for experimentation (which sometimes leads to improvement). This time, I used dark brown sugar in place of half of the light brown sugar, more vanilla extract, and miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips. […]

White Chocolate Semi-Sweet Pudding Cookies

        These cookies are based on my mom’s pudding chip cookies. The only thing I changed was the kind of instant pudding in the dough; I used white chocolate in lieu of the french vanilla.

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Brownies

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Brownies      Something very rare happened in my house a couple of weeks ago…I looked in my cupboard and realized I had no white chocolate chips in my house. You see, to me that is like looking in your refrigerator and realizing there are no eggs, no butter, or no […]

Mini Cookie Dough Ball Brownies

Mini Cookie Dough Ball Brownies A couple of days ago I posted a recipe for white chocolate chip cookie dough brownies. Those brownies had three layers: brownie base, cookie dough filling, and frosting on top. The recipe was delicious but got my wheels turning about other ways to make cookie dough brownies. After some discussion with […]

Zucchini Brownies

Over the summer I was given some zucchini from a friend. Being the sweets person I am, I looked for dessert recipes that incorporate the fruit. These zucchini brownies are, as my husband says, “the bomb.” They are extremely moist, thanks to the water that releases while baking at a high temperature. There are also NO […]

My Mom’s Pudding Chip Cookies

Pudding Chip Cookies      My mom has been making her pudding chip cookies since the 1970’s. She has baked at least two  batches a week for almost forty years…Since I majored in math in college, I was always interested in how many cookies she has made over the decades. I calculated this to be […]
