Pecan & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pecan & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies also known as “I Want to Marry You Cookies” are as good as they sound. Oatmeal raisin cookies are the butt of a lot of jokes – I make them too. I don’t hate the cookies, but they’re definitely not my favorite. But, these cookies with oats are actually delicious because they have chocolate chips and pecans! I can’t remember the exact source from the recipe I have, but I found this one via Pinterest and while it’s quite possible this is not the one I copied down to make these cookies, it looks close enough!

It’s my last day of work for 2018! It’s crazy how fast this year has gone by and I can’t believe Christmas is just days away. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know every year my mom and I make a ton of Christmas cookies. And I’m not exaggerating. We make hundreds of cookies and all different kinds! There are some that we make every year like sugar cookies, apricot cookies, rugelach, etc. and some we make some years and not others depending on what we’re in the mood to make. Usually every year we try out a new cookie too and this year I wanted…
I can’t believe Christmas is a week away! Have you finished your shopping? I think I’m done. Hopefully I won’t realize this weekend that I forgot someone. I still need to do some wrapping, but that’s about it. I think. Anyway, my next two or three food posts are good for the holidays. The rainbow cookies I’m sharing today are a favorite of mine. Unfortunately, I don’t have the exact recipe on me as I type this so I can’t give you exact measurements, but you can find recipes all over the internet. I’m still sharing this post despite not having the recipe on hand at the moment because Christmas…
Harry Potter Sugar Cookies
So remember when I bought the Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma? When I bought those I also bought Harry Potter cookie cutters. I’ve had a lot more success with the cookie cutters than with the pancake molds so far! For Thanksgiving I made a batch of sugar cookies with the cookie cutters. I decorated them with sprinkles in the colors of the Hogwarts houses. I know they’re not exactly the right shades of colors, but it’s the best I could do with supermarket sprinkles! With the exception of a couple of cookies where the imprint didn’t come out as deep and clear, they came out really good! I love…
Cocoa Crinkle Cookies
Who doesn’t love chocolate? I’m not a big sweets person, but chocolate I can do as long as it’s not super rich. Thankfully these scrumptious cocoa crinkle cookies aren’t too rich. My mom and I have been making these for a year or two now and they’re so good! We follow the Hershey’s recipe (here) but just cut down on the sugar – instead of 2 cups we use 1 1/2. While this recipe is pretty easy to follow and the cookies aren’t hard to make, it’s important to note that they are not quick cookies. The batter has to be refrigerated for at least 6 hours. It’s a good…
