The booze in these cookies is cooked for about 15 minutes with sugar to make a thick Guinness syrup, which adds just a hit of richness and flavor to the cookies.  If you don’t know what the secret ingredient is you would never guess that is is Guinness.

Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Andes candy has always been a Holiday favorite of mine. When I was a child my mom kept a bowl of them in the living room during the holiday season, and I always loved to sneak into the room and grab some of the green foil packets!  So naturally now that I am older I like to use the candy in cookies for Christmas.  I have made this before by cutting up the Andes mints, but this year I noticed you can now buy bags of the Creme De Menthe candy for baking.  That is much easier than cutting up a bunch of them!

Pumpkin Date Cookies

Pumpkin is one of my favorite fall flavors to cook with. It adds color and flavor to a dish and takes a recipe from ordinary to extraordinary. Last year I made tasty Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, and this fall I wanted to try out a new Pumpkin Cookie. I came up with this recipe for Pumpkin Date Cookies.

This recipe uses pumpkin and apple sauce in place of most of the butter, so it is very moist and chewy.  The insides of the cookie have a cake like texture.  I added dates and pecans along with spices to give the cookies a nice burst of flavor.

Maltese Figolli Cookies

Maltese Figolli Cookies - Traditional Easter cookie from Malta featuring lemon flavored dough with almond paste filling and chocolate Easter Eggs on top

Spring is the perfect time to try new and different recipes, so I welcomed the challenge to find a new holiday cookie from somewhere exotic to make this spring. After searching I found these traditional Maltese Figolli Cookies,  which are tasty pastry filled with almond paste.

The cookies are made with a buttery, lemon dough that is rolled and cut into spring shapes. Before baking a small amount of almond paste is spread onto a cookie, and an identical shape is placed on top. I used purchased almond paste, but you could make it from scratch.

I love the holiday time  – but it can get very stressful, because there is so much to do, and so little time. Just today my husband was asking when the rest of the holiday decorations will be up – and I don’t know! It is on my list, but there are other things that need to happen first. So I am always looking for ways to reduce stress and save time during the holidays, which is why I love these easy to make cake mix Red Velvet Cookies.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Bars

White Chocolate Pumpkin Bars | Pumpkin Treats | Easy Recipe for Pumpkin Bars | Chocolate Pumpkin Bars

Pumpkin and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combinations, and to make these White Chocolate Pumpkin Bars I used white chocolate instead of dark chocolate for a totally different taste!

White Chocolate Pumpkin Bars - Layers of white chocolate swirled with pumpkin for a delicious combination of flavors.

These take a little effort to prepare, because you have to make two separate batters and swirl them together for layers of white chocolate and pumpkin. But the result is worth the effort! The white chocolate layer is more cake like, and the pumpkin layer is more dense and chewy, for a great combination of tastes and textures.

Banana Walnut Cookies

I love banana bread, and these Banana Walnut Cookies have all the delicious banana bread flavor. Plus they are dairy free and gluten free, so they are great to make for those with food allergies.

Brownie Sundae Cookies

These Brownie Sundae Cookies are a perfect mini dessert!

Brownie Sundae Cookies - Chewy flourless brownie cookies topped with ice cream, chocolate sauce and a cherry. A delicious summer mini dessert baked in Mason jar lids.

This dessert has flourless Brownie Cookies as a base.  The cookies are a family favorite, because they are so big and chewy.  But the batter is very thin and runny, so it spreads all over the cookie sheet.  So I had the idea to use Mason jar lids as a mold, so that the batter would be contained and the cookies would be perfectly circular.
