If you’ve ever heard of kitchen sink cookies, they have a little bit of everything baked into them. One might call these pantry cookies because it was the pantry that I went searching for something inspired. What I found was a leftover bag of chocolate chips, a jar of peanut butter and some oats. Any one of them would make good cookies but why limit my choices to only one when I could have them all? So I added a bit of each to my mix and the combination was a resounding YUM!

Joe loves this time of year because it’s the time of year that I bake cookies. He loves all sweets but cookies are his favorite. I’ve been making these peanut butter cookies for several years now from a recipe I found in a Penzey’s spice catalog. There are some great recipes in that catalog! I love big chewy cookies and these cookies virtually bend, they are so soft.

The wait is over! My homemade Vanilla Extract and Vanilla sugar that I started in August is finally ready. I waited 8 weeks and it’s finally time to try it out.

And I have several cans of Macadamia nuts that Joe and I brought back from Hawaii saving for a special occasion. I think unveiling the Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Sugar is pretty special. The cookies turned out pretty good too!

It’s hard to describe but you get a bite of sweet and then a bite of crunchy saltiness chasing behind. I kept thinking it was that it was like the first time I sipped a sweet margarita in a salty rimmed glass. If you like sweet and salty things, this is the cookie for you. Continue reading

I’ve been craving cookies, maybe more like I crave baking cookies. The kitchen is my sanctuary on cold winter days with the oven warming and the aroma of fresh cookies baking. And what’s better than a warm cookie and a glass of milk to lift your spirits. I decided I’d just go with what I could find in the pantry since I didn’t want to go to the store. When I spotted the oats, my decision was made . . . Oatmeal Cookies.
