I’ve already made 3 batches of these cookies (including the initial experimental batch) and it isn’t even December yet!

Vanilla Butter Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips

I don’t do much baking in the summer. I’m less inclined to heat up the oven (and in turn, my house) in the scorching heat. The temperature outside my home in Kentucky has been over 100 degrees for days now, unseasonably hot and record setting for this time of year. But sometimes the mood to […]

Bacon Molasses Cookies

Bacon Molasses

Is it true that bacon makes everything better? After making these cookies, I say the answer is a definitive YES. I borrowed this fantastic recipe from my friend Brian, whose Molasses cookies are legendary at the holidays.
