Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Despite being insanely fattening, Peanut Butter is a wonderful thing. One of my friends (who shall remain nameless) loves the creamy stuff so much that she has been known to duct tape the jar shut to avoid eating it.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

White Chocolate Chip Cookies For those of us who don’t fall under the “white chocolate lover” category, sometimes white chocolate can offer a lovely little alternative to regular in cookies and other baked goods.

M&M Confetti Cookies

M&M Confetti Cookies I think I’ve found it: the perfect chocolate chip cookie. I don’t know if its the technique, the ratio of ingredients, or the M&M chunks…but something about these cookies is perfect. They are not too thick. They’re soft and chewy.

Microwave Caramels

Microwave Caramels

Chocolate Chunk Cookies--Sherry Yard

Chocolate Chunk Cookies–Sherry Yard

Chocolate Chunk Cookies *Recipe by Sherry Yard* Once again the perfect chocolate chip cookie alludes me. But with every cookie recipe I try, I can’t help but think-”is there really such a thing as a bad one?” Sure, not everyone is earth-shatteringly delicious, but none of them are ever bad. I’ve had Sherry Yard’s adorably...
