Any oreo fans out there? If so, I have a special treat for you, homemade oreos with a cookie stamp! Isn’t this just adorable? I don’t think I can go back to regular oreos anymore. These are so much better! And since I promised that during my second year of blogging, I will make more cookies, here they come!
I am currently hosting the event “Invite to a Coffee”, if you wish to learn more, feel free to check this post. The main idea is that you treat somebody to something homemade and let me know how that went. If you are still wondering what to make, this oreo is perfect for that occassion!
In case you didn’t know, I love cookies. Actually, I am a bit sad that in Germany you only eat a lot of cookies during Christmas, but once that is over, people forget about them. Sadly so. There are so many good ones! I love below cookies, but there are so many more I still want to make. Feel free to check out my cookie category for further inspiration.
Anyway, so as I was stating, I love cookies and I love to eat them all year round. Needless to say that I also love to bake cookies for baby showers. In case you didn’t notice, I am not so much the girly, pink and glittery type. That is not me. But for a baby shower I don’t mind a litte bit of cuteness. I mean, it is for a baby after all. Or to be exact, for the mom and for the baby shower attendees. Or however you want to call them.
So, how is your cookie intake? Are you already done with them for 2017? In case you didn’t know, Germans have a special name for the cookies you bake during the holidays. They are called “Plätzchen” whereas everyday cookies are “Kekse”. Does tell you something about how important cookies are during the holiday season, doesn’t it? Two words for cookies, the boring normal ones and the fancy ones for the holidays. And since I love cookies (any for that matter), the holiday season is perfect for a cookie monster like me. Welcome to the Chocolate Star Cookie. This cookie is the star of the sweet combination of vanilla and chocolate – in all its glory.
Let me introduce stained glass cookies to you. Stained what? Yes, you read right. These cookies are both, they are eatable, but they are also super pretty decoration. They will look extra pretty if you hang them in a window or put them on a branch. Because then you will be able to see through the stained glass. I think these cookies are perfect for the season and most definitely a thoughtful gift.
I had a little bit of chocolate pie pastry left. Originally I hadn’t planned to bake. But, you know, it just happened. So I decided to make these cute little chocolate raspberry stars. Thank God I have so many colleagues I can take my baked goods to, otherwise I would be about 200 pounds! Funnily enough, my colleagues loved them. Isn’t it interesting that the simple recipes are usually the best?
It is time for cookies! How about peanut butter & M&Ms? Perfect combination for me. Some color as a bonus. Remember, I live in the north of Germany, I need some color. So let’s have a look at these little beauties. They are soft, they basically melt in your mouth. If you love peanut butter, they are for you. Because, just in case super soft cookies are not enough, throw in some chocolate. Because peanut butter and chocolate are very hard to beat as the perfect combination. Do I need to say more?
Are there any cookie monsters out there? I for sure am one of them. I love chocolate chip cookies. The basic recipe. I really love the good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie. Plain, fresh out of the oven with a glass of milk and I am in heaven. I used to like the cookies from Subway. I loved them so much, I started looking for a recipe that would come as close as possible to the Subway recipe. Continue Reading…
Let’s talk about cookies. Cookies are my comfort food. Cookies are the best. I prefer them to a fancy dessert any time. I know, I am crazy, but cookies call me from afar. They remind me of my childhood. They usually don’t require that much time to prepare and they are easy to freeze, to ship, to make somebody happy, including myself.
I have a treat for you today. Think a very dark chocolate cookie with chocolate chunks and a surprise caramel center inside. Add some flaky sea salt and you got this price-winning cookie. I am not kidding. Sally from Sallysbakingaddiction.com actually won a baking contest with these cookies. It doesn’t surprise me, they are really and truly worth every bite!
I am a huge fan of cookies. If you say chocolate chips, I am in. If you say chocolate chips plus Nutella, you get me excited. Think of a cookie full of chocolate chips plus a soft center plus a swirl of Nutella. I can’t resist that combination.
