Cinnamon Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love experimenting with cookies. I’ve got my basic cookie recipe down by now, so that makes it very easy to just try different flavours and discover new favourites. A few weeks ago, I made these chocolate chips cookies with cinnamon and pecan nuts. I was really in the mood for something autumnal, so I […]

Cinnamon and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

The cookie urge got me again! I actually made these cinnamon and white chocolate chip cookies a little while back already, but I didn’t get around to writing up the recipe before now because it’s been a busy month. I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month and my goal is to write 30,000 words on […]

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes, I just suddenly get a very strong urge to bake cookies. This only happens with cookies, strangely enough. Never with muffins, pies, cakes… No idea what that’s about, but when it happens, I just roll with it. A few weeks ago on a Friday, I got the Cookie Urge again while I was at […]

Coconut Macaroons

I’m back! You might not have actually noticed that I was gone, but up until last week I hadn’t posted anything in over a month. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, since one of my New Year’s resolutions was to take a bit of a chill pill and be more relaxed about my blogging (and […]

Rolo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every once in a while I get the urge to bake cookies and it won’t go away until I’ve actually baked said cookies. So, that’s what I did this weekend! I came across the idea of chocolate chip cookies with a hidden Rolo (= caramel) surprise inside of them and that sounded so awfully delicious […]

Gingerbread Cookies

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I had a lovely day with my family, eating lots and lots of food – including these gingerbread cookies, which turned out to be a huge success. Definitely one to remember for next year! I hadn’t expected to make quite as many cookies as I did – […]

Decadent Three-Layer Brownies

These brownies are more commonly known as “slutty brownies” but I don’t like that name, so I went for “decadent three-layer brownies” instead. It’s still the same type of brownie, though: a layer of cookie dough covered by a layer of Oreos covered by a layer of brownie. I know. They’re as good as they […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

A little over a week ago I got an email from my thesis supervisor saying I passed my dissertation, and with a very good grade as well! To celebrate this, I decided to bake some cookies (yes, that is celebrating for me), and guys – they might be the best cookies I have ever baked. They’re […]

Crispy Cinnamon Biscuits

A few weeks ago, my favourite biscuits were on sale at the supermarket: cinnamon biscuits by a brand called Verkade (not sponsored, although I wish I was). They’re crunchy and sugary and cinnamony – they’re delicious. I don’t often buy cookies or biscuits at the supermarket, because I always figure they’ll be better if I make them […]
