almond butter shortbread with chocolate and sea salt

Cookies will always and forever be my favorite treat to bake. Even when the flavors are new, the process is so familiar. They allow me to extend my creativity but still feel secure in the creation process. I have made shortbread more times than I can count, and pecan sandies (icebox cookies), which follow a…

earl grey shortbread cookies

I grew up in a tea-loving family. My parents have a tea drawer in the kitchen and I, the only tea drinker in my apartment, have enough tea to fill a drawer of my own. We don’t mess around when it comes to a good cup of tea. I didn’t try coffee until I was…

lemon poppy seed coconut macaroons

Coconut is a divisive ingredient. I am obviously strongly on team coconut, but a few members of my family are vehemently opposed to the contentious ingredient appearing in any recipe. I get it, but I will forever continue to make coconut goodies for the good of the rest of us ;) Sometimes I can hide…

milk chocolate cadbury mini egg cookies

I am so excited to share these Cadbury mini egg cookies today! I recently learned that Cadbury mini eggs are not as revered by everyone as I think they should be. Some people (cough, Will) think they are gross and merely nostalgic, and when I brought them up in another crowd people thought I was…

dark chocolate chunk espresso shortbread

In the past few weeks, it seems like everyone on the Internet has been making Alison Roman’s salted butter and dark chocolate chunk shortbread cookies. Cookies are my favorite baked good to make because of their versatility – there is always a twist, an addition, a substitution, or a tweak that can create an entirely…
