My Experience with Making Meringue Cookies

Traditionally, meringue cookies are shaped like Hershey’s kisses, except with a lined texture. I had attempted to shape them that way. In fact, I went to Michael’s Arts and Crafts to buy a tip that would create the standard shape for meringue cookies. I had planned to make these as a birthday gift for oneContinue reading “My Experience with Making Meringue Cookies”

Oreo, Oreo, Oh, Oreo… Pops!

It’s like eating cookie dough… except that there are no raw eggs or flour. You just crush them and blend them with cream cheese. You could do this by hand, although I would recommend using a food processor… not just to save time, but also for better quality. I would have also included my ownContinue reading “Oreo, Oreo, Oh, Oreo… Pops!”

In mid-December, I demonstrated a virtual cookie decorating lesson for my friends. As you can see in the picture I took, I did polka-dots, a snowman, a sunflower, rainbow stripes, a rose and a basketball. The rose and basketball don’t really look accurate. But, hey, I tried. So, here is the first tip: when mixingContinue reading “Cookie Decorating Techniques You May Want to Try”

Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies: Dairy-Free & Delicious

They were chewy, sweet, and chocolaty. They had vegan butter and coconut oil as well as dairy-free chocolate chips. And they were not only delicious, but they were also irresistible. My family could taste the coconut, although I could not. They did not enjoy the cookies as much as I did. But I could notContinue reading “Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies: Dairy-Free & Delicious”

Healthy and “Happy” Chocolate Chip Cookies

If only my cookies ended up as good as the ones above, taken from Pixabay, a public-domain image website. Obviously, I don’t know how these taste. However, I wanted to share my experience on a recipe where I substituted for healthier ingredients, but, unfortunately, failed. Although substituting works most of the time, sometimes it sadly doesn’t. IContinue reading “Healthy and “Happy” Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Spectacular Spiral Cookies

It’s chocolate and vanilla dough rolled together. When you slice it, you should get spirals. Of course, not all the cookies will have perfect spirals, or even anything resembling a swirl. As you can see in the picture, there are no cookies with whirls. This was just a portion of a picture from my collegeContinue reading “Spectacular Spiral Cookies”

Trick or Treat with This Sweet Skillet Cookie

Ah, the gooey, chewy, skillet cookies–who doesn’t love them, especially when warm and topped with ice cream (which I didn’t use since I didn’t have any in my house)? Well, I used a recipe that was rated close to 5 stars, and had the best rating compared to the other recipes I found on Google.Continue reading “Trick or Treat with This Sweet Skillet Cookie”

Cookie “Dough” Balls and How I Made Them

Have you ever eaten cookie dough? I used to, even though I wasn’t supposed to. Luckily, I never got sick. But there is a way to make cookie “dough”. And no, I don’t mean the mysterious stuff ice cream parlors use. I mean crushed cookies and cream cheese. That’s right. You can use store-bought cookies.Continue reading “Cookie “Dough” Balls and How I Made Them”
