Buttery, tender and delicate, these snowy melt-in-your-mouth cookies get their light sweetness and powdery coating from twice being rolled in powdered sugar. I have made snowball cookies every year at Christmas for many years. Almost everyone I know loves them (except my husband!), so I often make them for other occasions such as birthdays, pot […]

Triple Chocolate Fudge Cookies

September 16, 2012

Semi sweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and cocoa combine to give these moist, chewy cookies a rich depth of flavor that goes well with a cup of cold milk or cup of hot coffee.

They are incredibly easy and very quick to mix and bake. The bars are crisp without being crunchy, and have just the right […]

Rolled Sugar Cookies

February 12, 2012

I love this rolled sugar cookie. It’s light and flaky, and delicately flavored with just the right amount of sweetness. I make them for nearly every holiday – Valentine’s Day hearts, St. Patrick’s Day shamrocks, Easter bunnies and chicks, Springtime flowers, Autumn leaves and Christmas snowflakes. The dough whips up in no time and only […]


Chocolate Thumbprints

January 6, 2012

They are adapted from Marta Stewart’s recipe. Her version produces too few cookies and too much filling, and the ingredients are listed in […]
