Carrot Cake Pops

Carrot cake is probably one of my favorite cakes. The flavor and texture are perfect together! I’ve never tried making cake pops before so I thought this would be a great opportunity to try them out. I originally made these for Easter. Since I was already making other desserts, I wanted to use boxed cake…

Soft Sugar Cookies

Let’s face it, we all love sugar cookies because what’s there not to love about them? But sugar cookies are boring; they need more pizazz! To spunk up these sugar cookies, besides baking them extra soft, they also have a healthy serving of sprinkles packed in there, making them look delicious and fun. This recipe…

Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

I told you I wouldn’t forget about these guys! I was supposed to make these as part of my Christmas Cookie Line-Up, but they ended up getting neglected and I never got to them. I had already bought all the ingredients to make them though so I promised I would get to them and that’s exactly…

Pecan Snowballs

Snowball fight!! Not really though, trust me you don’t want to be wasting these snowballs. The only place you want to be throwing these is in your mouth. As I have mentioned before, pecans are my favorite and I especially like things with pecans in it. These are a perfect little Christmas cookie that you…

Chocolate Cake Cookies

Now when I think of chocolate cake, the first thing that pops into my mind definitely isn’t Christmas. One of my family members found this recipe on Pinterest and asked if I could make it for Christmas so naturally, I agreed. Although the name doesn’t sound like Christmas, when you take a bite of one you’ll…

Sprinkle Spritz

When all else fails, just throw some sprinkles on it! My original plan was to make Spritz Cookies because it is the only thing I’ve been wanting to do this entire season and I finally got my hands on a cookie press and it didn’t work!!! The dough was too thick and I had no…

Churro Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree you look sooo tasty! Many of you probably saw videos of this beauty all over Facebook and I decided to actually try it out. I’m not going to lie, mine doesn’t look exactly like the pictures, but does anything ever look the same in pictures?   Ingredients 2 sheets…

Cookie Cutter Sugar Cookies

When I think of “putting milk and cookies out for Sants” cookies, I think of decorated sugar cookies. Why would Santa settle for anything less than a cookie with his own face on it? But anyways… If you want to know the truth, I’m not a big icing or frosting fan, but I am a…

Christmas Cookie Line-Up

Christmas is only a few days away and that means it’s time to get baking! In preparation for upcoming festivities, I shall be spending my entire Saturday baking as many cookies as I can! Some are family recipes, some repeat recipes and some new recipes I’m trying out. A Christmas party isn’t a real party…

Christmas Decorating

Thanksgiving has past and it is officially “acceptable” to put Christmas decorations up, put peppermint in everything, sing Christmas songs and wear ugly sweaters. I’m not going to pretend I didn’t start doing that in the beginning of November though; my tree was up and the apartment was decorating before I even finished eating Thanksgiving…
