Stuffed Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Cookies

Hoho-HOMG!!! These cookies are SOOOOO good! And I am NOT exaggerating.  Talk about rich, decadent, fudgy pure chocolatey deliciousness. Oh and of course festive fun! Don’t these cookies remind you of Christmas? I was probably deprived as a child…I’ve come to grips with that now….but I don’t think I had my first bite of red velvet cake until I was in college.  Growing up my family preferred pound cakes and pineapple moon cakes definitely nothing too sweet. Sugar was going to rot out all my teeth my dad used to tell me….Ha if he only knew what I’d grow up loving…cookies!! So, when I discovered Red Velvet and more importantly cream cheese icing, I was in love!

Soft & Chewy Brown Butter Snickerdoodles with Caramel Bits

I can still remember the first time I tried brown butter.  I was watching an episode of Anne Burrell’s Secrets of a Restaurant Chef (love her!) where she made a brown butter tilapia dish look so amazingly delicious and most important easy to make, I just had to try it….and my life was forever changed!!  If you haven’t tried brown butter, you truly haven’t experienced all life has to offer it is SO good! It’s one of the simplest and easiest ways to add the most delicious deep rich & intense nutty caramelized flavor to your dish.  Even the smell of the butter browning sends your taste buds into high gear salivating at the flavor. It’s seriously out of this world! Once I tried it I knew I had to use it in a cookie.

How to Decorate Snowflake Cookies

If anyone knows me, they know I completely SUCK at decorating.  And I don’t use the word suck lightly.  It’s something that I only recently decided I wanted to learn.  I love baking cookies, eating cookies, creating new cookie recipes, experimenting with cookies….so I guess it’s only natural I should learn how to decorate them. So, it is now actually one of my goals for 2014… To become a better cookie decorator. Watch out royal icing I’m coming for you!  For a while I really didn’t have a ton of interest in learning to decorate cookies because most decorated cookies never tasted that good and if I’m going to eat a cookie it better taste good…right? But then I saw these Hello Kitty macarons from Crumbs and thought, “who cares?! these are so freaking cute they could taste like rocks and I would LOVE them…plus I wouldn’t want to eat them because they are so freaking cute!”

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…it’s not really Christmas without Chocolate Peppermint Cookies….what are we barbarians? I love all the peppermint flavors that come out this time of year.  Mint chocolate chip is definitely my favorite ice cream, York peppermint candies are one of my all time faves and as disgusting as it is I can eat a whole bowl of the mint melts they used to leave out at the Chinese restaurants…do they even do that anymore? I seriously love those mint melts.

Fugdy Salted Caramel Snowball German Chocolate Cookies

Every year from November 1st through January 16th ( my birthday…wink wink 🙂 I refuse to step on the scale and rock the active “on my way” to the gym look with my oh so comfy stretchy yoga pants.  What’s the point? It’s the season of indulgence and I am all about indulging and in this case ignorance is sooooo bliss.
