Toasted Marshmallow Cookie Bars

A new updated version of these bars uses less butter, yields more bars, but doesn’t lose any of the amazing flavor. These are one giant chewy cookie in bar form with the occasional gooey marshmallow bite. You’ll have a hard time stopping at one.

So yes, this recipe was already put on my blog a few years ago. Buuutttt, I recently made these again, and I made some minor adjustments that made for a larger pan and less butter. I mean, I love me some butter, but I don’t like to have a whole pound of butter in one 9x13-inch pan. That seems a little excessive in my opinion. But maybe not? I don’t …

Toffee Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies

Buttery, soft and chewy cookies filled with chopped chocolate, espresso and toffee bits. Everything is so right about this cookie.

I feel like every time I make a new flavored cookie, it becomes my favorite. And this is coming from someone that honestly doesn’t eat a lot of cookies. Yes, I make cookies every week.

With that being said, there are a choice few cookies that I will go to first. Most of them revolve…

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate and peppermint come together to create a soft and chewy cookie perfect for Christmas. The cookie dough is rolled in peppermint, which creates a beautiful red, crackly crust on the outside. These are irresistible and perfect for this time of year.

To be honest, I really wanted to call these Christmas crack cookies. Buuutttt, I thought that might not be appropriate. You never know who you may offend these days, so I tend to play it cool and neutral. That’s partly why you won’t see any political posts. But mainly that’s because I hate talking politics with anyone. It can stir up..

Hello Fall! I welcome you with open arms. I am ready for cooler temperatures, brilliant colored leaves, and apples! We went on our annual apple pick at our usual orchard this past weekend. The day was perfect- the sun was shining down on our faces, and a cool fall breeze was blowing through the apple laden trees. We were so gung-ho that we picked around 140 pounds of apples. We always go a little overboard, but I must say, I love it! We are down to our last few jars of applesauce from last..
