Guest Post: Peek-a-boo Ghost Cookies by SweetSugarBelle

6190420882_4c775e316e

Today is an exciting day for me, because one of my most talented and hilarious food blogging friends is guest posting!  Callye, known in the foodie world as SweetSugarBelle, is who I like to title the Cookie Decorating Queen.  If you haven’t run across her blog yet, head on over there now and say “hello!” […]

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

6168097359_3dc8d10439

I made these cookies the other day when searching for a recipe that would remind me of fall (amid our 90-degree temperatures) and included ingredients I already had on hand.  When Mrs. M.O.B. declared that these cookies taste just like autumn, I took her words to heart and chose to make them.  I was hesitant […]

Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies

6122958840_cdeee0d334

Are you like me?  When asked to bring a dish to a get-together, and the host doesn’t request something specific, do you try with all of your might to pick a recipe that goes along with the theme of the rest of the dinner, no matter if a theme is intended?  Even when you really […]

Graham Crackers

5910799135_e97494e805

You can call this part two of a three part series of posts.  Yesterday, I shared with you a Roasted Marshmallow Ice Cream and today, these homemade Graham Crackers.  Can you guess where I’m going with this yet? ;)  If not, you’ll find out tomorrow! This recipe is unbelievable and I only wish I found […]

Father’s Day Sugar Cookies and a Gift Packaging Tutorial

5842050049_14ab8b8879

I’m excited about these cookies and the following tutorial.  Recently, I discovered a fun way to package my sugar cookies so they can be hand-delivered or safely mailed.  Just by picking up a few items at the dollar store and then using other things I always have on hand, I am able to create a […]

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

It’s no secret how much we love our cookies here in the Pennies household.  I wish I could tell you how many variations I have bookmarked, but I simply can’t count past my ten fingers.  ;)  When we want a quick and easy dessert, cookies are usually the way we go. Often, I get the […]

Bridal Shower ‘Tushie Cookies

5756979159_d5eb001e7f

Almost two weeks ago we attended one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve witnessed.  The ceremony and reception were both held outdoors in the foothills of the gorgeous mountains that surround us.  About a week prior to the wedding, I made these cookies as a party favor for the bride’s lingerie shower.  I wish I […]

Big and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

5724517667_762f73b137

Even though yesterday was National Chocolate Chip Day, I made these cookies last week as the second recipe to try out of my new cookbook.  If I didn’t know I was going to be devouring other sweets at our church’s Newcomer’s Dessert, I would have made these again yesterday in a heartbeat to celebrate the […]

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

5629319409_d35268058c

It wasn’t too long ago that these cookies went viral around the food blogging world.  When seeing them pop up on blog after blog, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to give them a try.  The verdict?  Honestly, they weren’t my favorite.  Just a tad bit too much for me.  But, […]

Sugar Cookie Hearts

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and you might be on the search for a treat to bring to work, school, church, the neighbors, etc.  If you’re looking to impress, these are the choice for you!  Would you believe me if I told you that these cookies are extremely easy to decorate?  It only takes 3 […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

5369393062_73b1054778

Yes, this is another cookie recipe.  I told you I’m addicted! Not much to say about these because they are just this recipe with chocolate chips instead of raisins.  Ben declared these as his favorite cookies the night I first made these.  (Here’s a hint: He says that about every cookie I’ve made lately!)  Flattering, […]

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

5352469079_54c1740ce3

Earlier this week, Ben came home from work and told me we were invited to a friend’s to watch football and eat pizza.  Whenever we go somewhere for dinner or a party, I never like to arrive empty handed.  The catch?  Ben told me this at 4:15 PM and we were expected to be there […]

Chocolate Haystacks

5318280295_95800a0ce2

This is not the first recipe post of the new year you want to read if you have made a resolution to start eating healthier.  I’m not one to make new year resolutions, so in a sense I’m rebelling and trying to drag you down with me.  :)  These cookies have been in my family […]

Peanut Butter Blossoms

5275939659_c553451a2a

Peanut Butter Blossoms are such a classic cookie that most people make only during the holidays.  Can anyone tell me why?  I’ve been hunting for the reason that these aren’t enjoyed all year long!  There isn’t a seasonal ingredient in the recipe, so I’m baffled. One reason I do not make them all year long […]

Christmas Crunch Cookies

5268312444_99b1b8c713

I’m.so.tired.  This week has been a busy yet very fun week.  Saturday was Judah’s first birthday party (so fun!), Monday we had a Christmas party to attend, Tuesday we hosted the college girls for a Christmas baking night and last night we hosted the Ugly Sweater Christmas party where we ate the sweets we baked.  […]

Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies

5243457428_2e0f6b9bef

These next couple of weeks I’m predicting you’ll see quite a few sweets posted here.  I’ll admit, it’s not only because I’m making them for holiday parties or gift baskets, but partially because when winter hits my sweet tooth enhances.  The other day I was thinking about how I haven’t been using a couple of […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies

5222469531_8b8dbb19e5

Tempt me with any chocolate and peanut butter dessert and I’ll most likely give in.  Who can resist such a winning combination?  If you are also on the chocolate peanut butter bandwagon, try biting into a soft chocolate cookie and being surprised with a peanut butter filling!  Ooh-la-la! I made these for our friends’ son […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops

5096073052_4bbe153e55

These darling sweets are no exception to the pumpkin and chocolate combo…delicious!  They were originally posted as cookies, but I couldn’t help but think of muffin tops every time I ate them.  They are cakey, more like muffins, rather than like cookies. I made these on the larger scale so that they resembled muffin tops, […]

Snickerdoodle Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches

5082655234_618cdc1eb0

Snickerdoodle Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches might be too long of a title, but I wanted to capture its every essence.  :)  Earlier this week when I posted the recipe for the Pumpkin Ice Cream, I promised to share how I used it with another favorite treat.  Here it is!  This was in my mind all […]

Snickerdoodle Cookies

5056457788_9dd1fd5446

Snickerdoodle cookies have always been something I’ve enjoyed, but never thought about making.  I’m clueless as to why!  These are probably one of the easiest cookie recipes I have ever encountered.  We’ve been enjoying them all week.  They are also great for freezing and then popping in the microwave for a few seconds before devouring.
