Gingersnaps make me absolutely nostalgic. They take me right back to childhood and baking with my Mom We kids would kneel on a chair at the kitchen table so we could reach and we’d take turns dipping a glass in sugar and gently pressing down the gingersnaps before they baked.
If there’s ever a cookie that screams “Christmas” it has to be a White Chocolate & Dried Cranberry Cookie. And so I dutifully waited until after Thanksgiving to post these lovelies.
When I was little, I have very fond memories of making cookies with my Mom. Well, she made them and we pressed the forks into them to make a cross-hatch – and they were always peanut butter. But at my friend Lynette’s house, they made all kinds of things! And it seemed like they were always making something. But I really remember the Pumpkin Drop Cookies.
Monster Cookies are one of those cookies that I’ve mostly had from an assortment of big bakery boxes of cookies that always seemed to show up around work or school functions. You know the beat: Chocolate Chip Cookies, probably not as good as my Bill’s Chocolate Chip Cookies and maybe an Oatmeal Cookie, which usually are pretty good but pale in comparison to these Big Chewy Oatmeal Cookies. And then there are the Monster Cookies.
It might seem like my blog has a lot to do with baking, lately. I’ve been updating all of my Dessert Menus; organizing them properly and that means posting the results. So if you’re tired of multiple posts on Desserts, thanks for bearing with me. So I thought I’d reward you with a cookie, but not just any cookie. It’s a “Must Make.” These are Jacques Torres’ Chocolate Mudslide Cookies.
