Molasses Crinkles

These sweet and spicy cookies are perfect for the holidays to serve at home or give as gifts. I was greatly surprised when my boys requested these over and over again since they are not the spice in my dessert and snacks, kind of kids.

Confetti Stuffed Cookies

Aren't these just the most amazing cookies to celebrate with?  They would be perfect for New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day (little hearts), St. Patty's Day (green clovers), Halloween (with little spider sprinkles), Christmas (trees and holly) and even a baby shower reveal with colored gems!  So many possibilities!

Butterscotch Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started out with good intentions of making biscuits and somehow, along the way, I made Butterscotch Cookies!  They were great as they were but I know my boys and they are not fond of butterscotch.  However, I can put dark chocolate chips in anything and they will gobble it up.  I think I’ll try them in cornbread just to see if my theory is true .  I'll let you know.  ;)   Eat these as they are or add oats, nuts, dried fruit, cinnamon sugar and/or dark chocolate.  Just make them and get raves about making the best cookies ever!  One of my twins told me,  "Hey Mom, they didn't even need milk!"  My oldest said to me, “When I have children, I’ll bring them over at Christmas to eat the best Grandma cookies!”  ~heart warm and subtle smiles~  That’s why I write Recipes For My Boys, so they will have their favorites … forever.

These are so rich!  You only need a bite...yet, you keep going back for more!  Layer the toppings or mix them all together.  However you top it, it is intensely full of deep, sweet flavors!

Dark Chocolate Graham Cracker Brownies

My youngest just came home from the hospital last night after staying there 3 days from an asthma attack.  The whole time there, he wanted brownies.  This morning, I made these really easy fudgy brownies for him.  I know he will be happy to share with the rest of us.  Enjoy them out of the oven while they are soft and gooey or let them cool and they are chewy outer covering and fudgy inside.  Either way, I know you will love them!  Use different flavor graham crackers, chips, dried fruit, nuts .... for a variety of new brownies.  I am thinking quite a few ways to enjoy them!

Molasses Crinkles

I made these Molasses Crinkles using blackstrap molasses.  We love the taste and the added benefits of iron, minerals and vitamins supplied from it, however minute, are a bonus!

Frozen Oreo Ice Cream Pudding Cake

I know you want this!  I can see it all over your face.  Come on…admit it!  There you go, I knew you would.  ~smile~  I’ve changed an old dessert to a “healthier” version.  Healthier, but by no means healthy.  Big difference so eat sparingly.  Or, eat like a piggy and diet for a month to make up for it.  ~big guilty grin!~  This makes a lot!  It is a huge frozen dessert.  You can make it in smaller pans or even cupcake liners as very cute and easy to handle dessert for the children and adults alike!  Go ahead…make someone people happy!  Enjoy

Chunky Banana Nut Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Spice Cookies

Yes, you read it right!  These cookies are great!   At least my boys think so.   Dark chocolate, spices, bananas and nuts.  You can add dried fruit, too, if you wish.  With flax seed, wheat germ, wheat and soy flours, and of course oatmeal...what's not to love!   I bet you could even get away with eating these for breakfast, I did!

Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these yummy cookies yesterday. They are made without flour and if you use oatmeal instead of whole grains cereal, you will make them gluten free. Today when I checked, there were only 2 left.  I’m hiding them since there are 3 boys and I wouldn't want anyone to get their feelings hurts.  Guess where they can be found.  Winking smile  These made just shy of 3 dozen…you can make them a little smaller if you need more.  That’s probably a good idea if you have hungry cookie monsters like I do.  I also have another, no flour, Peanut Butter Cookies I made earlier this year that my boys also gobbled up.  Yep, they love peanut butter!  Make some of these thin, chewy, peanutty, chocolaty cookies for your cookie monsters and a little extra for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.    <3 and hugs!

Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown brown sugar, make your own brown sugar
1/2 cup whole grain hot cereal, or quick oatmeal, uncooked….make instant oatmeal
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F  Stir baking soda in with sugar.  Mix peanut butter and with sugar until incorporated.  I used a fork, you can use a mixer to make it easier.  Stir in beaten egg.  Add  dry cereal stir well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Roll into walnut size balls, place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until turning brown around the edges.  Take out of oven when done.  They will be soft.   Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 – 2  minutes.  Transfer to cooling racks.  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free

Each Tuesday this summer means my twin 5 year old boys are going on dates to the movies.  ~smile~  I'll be honest with you...I'm a Mom that takes food to the theater.  There is just no reason to charge 3 dollars for a bottle of water or 6 dollars for a soda (I drink way to many diet cokes).  The food is ridiculously priced as well.   The exception is a large popcorn.  I can divide it 5 ways and refill it for free on the way out for us to munch on later.  Most Tuesday mornings you will find me bustling about the kitchen making a snacks to take with us.  This morning I was out of flour, all flour.  I remembered this one my precious Mama would make for me oh so many years ago.  ~smile~  I made them and added mini chocolate chips to the tops before putting them in the oven.  They are sweet, I think I will reduce the by half next time I make them.  My boys loved them and I hope you do, too! <3 and hugs!

Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free
makes 2 to 3 dozen bite size cookies

1 cup peanut butter, your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup, more or less, chocolate chips, optional
1/4 cup, more or less, oats, optional
1/4 cup, more or less, peanuts or pecans, optional

Stir both sugars (start with half of each and taste, adding more if you wish), egg and vanilla together.  
Add chocolate chips, nuts, oats or whatever you wish, if you want to.  Start with 1/4 and adding a little more if desired. 
Pinch dough and roll into a quarter size ball for bite size cookies and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.  
I pushed the dough slightly and added mini chocolate chips on the top instead of in the dough.
Bake for 5 minutes, turn and bake another 2-5 minutes depending on size.  
They are done when brown on bottom and light brown around edges. 
Put on cooling rack immediately out of the oven.   
Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!

Peppermint Dark Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

I decided to make peppermint dark chocolate cookies for my oldest son's class.  It's the last day of school before spring break starts, YAY!  St. Patrick's Day is Saturday, so I wanted to make something special.   I looked through the pantry and found cake mixes.  Yep, easy cookies are in the making for me today.  They take a little bit of time but so worth the smiles.  Update.....they were a hit with the children at school, and home!  ;D

Filled Sugar Cookies and Afternoon of Fun!

Pin It
Banana Nut Cookies

Yesterday, we started our day by going out to eat.  While the food wasn't the greatest...being together was.  After brunch and a quick trip to the store, seems we do that far too often, we came home only to leave a few minutes later.  I took the boys to the playground.  They had fun sliding, swinging and climbing.  I had fun watching, taking pictures and feeling so blessed that I must have looked silly walking around with a continuous smile on my face.  ;D  SEE!

We came home to find a huge container of our Son In Law's delicious spaghetti sauce!  We absolutely love it and consider it a treat when it is given to us.  I cooked fettuccine for the pasta and a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan topped it off.  A salad of romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers and a little parmesan.  Toasted slices of a baguette, I topped some with garlic butter while Reid made pizzas out of the others.

For dessert we had cookies.  I used sugar cookie dough and added fillings.  The Boys Loved Them!  We added peanut butter, chocolate chips, junior mints, peanut butter and chocolate chips, a candy bar and my favorite...banana nut!

Super easy to make.  All you need is...

Sugar Cookie Dough and Whatever filling you want.  A dab of this, a sprinkle of that.

For all cookies.......

Flatten a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough.  Add your desired filling.  Fold over.  Add a little more dough if needed to completely seal.  Roll into a ball.  Place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.   Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven. Cook 5 minutes, turn pan around.  Cook an additional 3-6 minutes, checking after 3 minutes.  Cookies are done when edges start to turn golden brown.  Keep on 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet before you transfer them to a cooling rack.  I know you can't wait for them to cool...go ahead and eat them warm, I won't tell.  ~smile~
As always..My oven cooks different than yours, please adjust time accordingly.  

For the banana nut cookies, I sliced bananas.  Sprinkled with lemon juice , optional, and brown sugar.  Chopped a few walnuts.

For the candy bar...Cut to fit inside the cookie.

All others...just fill, fold and roll.

To a tablespoon of sugar cookie dough, flatten out and add filling.

Fold over, add a little more dough if needed, and roll in a ball. 

The sun is trying to peak through.

Chocolate Covered Chocolate Cherry Cookies

I found a lot of old recipes I had forgotten about last week and hope to share them with you very soon!  This is a twist on a cookie one.  The cherry is supposed to be pushed in the  cookie dough some of it still shows and you cover it with chocolate.  I hid the cherry in my cookie.  The boys love it...hope you do too!  <3 and hUgs!
Chocolate Cherry Cookies

1 1/2 to 2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp baking soda 
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup margarine (half a stick), room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 to 2 tsp vanilla extract
1 10 oz jar small maraschino cherries
semi sweet chocolate, either chips or baking squares

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Stir dry ingredients and set aside.  
Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.  
Beat in egg and vanilla.  
Beat in flour mixture a little at the time.  
It should be  a stiff dough, add more flour or cocoa, if you need to.  
Put in fridge to chill a bit.

Drain cherries, reserve liquid if you wish for a later use, and make certain they are dry.

Take cookie dough out of fridge.  
Put a light coating of oil on hands, or spray them, make a small ball...flatten with palm.  
Put cherry in middle of dough, fold over to seal.  
Roll into a ball and put on an ungreased cookie sheet.  
Bake for 8-10 minutes.  As always, my oven cooks different than yours.  Adjust time accordingly.  

Cool on rack.  While cooling...melt chocolate 2 squares or half cup at the time according to directions.   
Dip  cookies in or drizzle over.
 ENJOY!!!!  <3 and hUgs!
