Lemon Meltaway Cookies

I love anything lemon, and this tea cookie is the best!

Years ago I made a cookie called High Tea Lemon Cookie. They were good but could have been a little more lemony and a little less crumbly or at least not fall apart before getting in your mouth. That recipe was made with 1 1/2 cups of cornstarch and to me not quite sweet enough.

My sister and I first put the High Tea Lemon Cookie in one of our cookbooks we did together (self-published so no longer around) 30 years ago. I’ve made that recipe numerous times […]

Nutty Toffee Peanut Butter Bars

Leftover candy put to use.

I have to admit that my first thought for a name of this bar was “leftovers” or “trash” but they are too good to be called leftover anything. I had candy left over from Christmas baking projects, Valentine’s Day projects and a ton off bags of candy I bought at “after Christmas” sale at the grocery. “Trash” because I should have thrown my candy away so I wouldn’t eat it; but who does that?

So with bags some Heath Chocolate bits, some mixed salted nuts and dark chocolate chips I just had to improve […]

Toasted Coconut and Lime Shortbread Cookie

🎶She put the lime in the coconut and “baked” ’em all up…

I’ve never heard of the guy that sang “Coconut”; (Harry Nilsson); but it’s one of those “worm” songs that after it gets in your head it is hard to rid yourself of those lyrics. So, when I first saw this cookie and made and tasted this cookie that song popped in my head and I knew I was going to make it again, and again, and again.

Baking is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen and I have made thousands, maybe even […]

Sable Cookies with Flowers

A beautiful floral tasting cookie.

These should have been handed out at “the wedding” last weekend as favors.

Don’t these cookies look like I robbed the little flower girls’ baskets at the royal wedding last weekend? Well I didn’t; they came from my yard.

My alarm was not set for 4:00 a.m. but my recorder was and once I was awake I turned it on and did a pretty quick catch up to the main event.

All of these flowers came from my yard except for the little in bachelor button flowers which were actually from some Bachelor […]

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Crunchy, coconuty, delicious, what more can I say.

I don’t talk about failures very often because I don’t have a lot of them. When I do make a mistake, I never make it again. Let me tell you what recently happened.

When we went to Austin back in February for our grandson, Frankie’s, first birthday celebration I took along some beautiful little caterpillar sugar cookies all decorated with green royal frosting, yellow polka dots along with eyes and even little mustaches. Four of our six grandsons were at the party and they loved the cookies (not sure if Frankie […]
