Gingersnaps are one of my favorite cookie recipes.  They keep well and have a distinct molasses and ginger taste, perfect for the Holiday season. This recipe is a family recipe that was handed down from my Great Aunt Tina. I don’t remember ever meeting my Great Aunt Tina, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy her cookie recipe!

The Creative Cookie Exchange blog theme for this month is decorated cookies. Originally I was thinking of making holiday cookies, but then I saw these adorable Chemistry cookie cutters, and I just decided to forget the holidays and go for a science theme.

These Chemistry Cookies are a simple shortbread cutout cookie made to look like Erlenmeyer flasks, beakers and atoms. I teach high school chemistry at a local homeschool co-op, so I love these perfect chemical treats. After all a lot of cooking is just chemistry in action.

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!

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.

These Brownie Sundae Cookies are a perfect mini dessert!

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.

Lately I’ve been making mostly mini-sized desserts – like these bite sized Lemon Tassies.

Small desserts are perfect for me, because I am trying to eat better and lose weight, but I can’t give up desserts completely! So small desserts let me have a little bit, but not too much.

Bite sized desserts are also perfect for a party, and are a great way to let guests sample a variety of treats. These tarts have a pastry crust filled with a sweet homemade lemon curd.

Rocky Road is a popular ice cream flavor, so it only makes sense it would make a delicious cookie too.  This recipe is just a standard chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe with the addition of almonds and marshmallows.

Maple Cream Cookies

The theme this week for the Creative Cookie Exchange is sandwich cookies – and I made these tasty Maple Cream Cookies.

Maple Cream Cookies - a delicious cookie with creamy maple filling sandwiched between two spice cookies.

The cookie part of this recipe is a mild spice cookie flavored with real maple syrup.  Maple is one of my favorite flavors, and although it is a traditional fall flavor I like it all year round.  Baking these cookies made the whole house smell delicious too.

To make a football shape I used a circular cookie cutter.  First I cut out a circle shape, and then used the same cookie cutter to go over half the circle and make it a football shape.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

I love the tangy taste of cranberries! These Cranberry Orange Cookies are a nice seasonal treat, and a deliciously different ways to use cranberries.

A friend of mine gave me this recipe last year, and I couldn’t wait to try it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find cranberries at the grocery store until the beginning of November, so I had to wait a while! The recipe uses orange juice concentrate to add a hint of citrus to the cookies, which really brings out the flavor of the cranberries.

Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookie Recipe

Working on the assumption that almost everything tastes better with chocolate, I decided to add chocolate chips to my Meringue Cookies this year. I like to make Meringues, because they are so simple and involve so few ingredients, and they melt in your mouth when you eat them.  They are also about as low calorie as you can get for Christmas cookies. The only drawback is my recipe calls for cream of tartar, which I only use a few times a year. So I usually have to ransack the pantry to find it, because it has invariably ended up all the way in the back underneath something.
