These are just good and chewy cookies.

I have no history lesson on the snickerdoodles. I don’t care where they came from.

They’re addictive and damn delicious.

I keep coming back to these. It’s that tiny bit of almond extract that gives them a nice depth of flavor. Then there’s the salt and the cinnamon-sugar crust and the chewiness…

Or apple crunch cake. Fantastic and totally for fall.

The pandowdy is a layer of apple pie filling topped with a buttery, sugar-crisp cake layer dotted with toasted nuts.

It’s based on my mom’s old pandowdy recipe — the kind that takes pie filling, a boxed cake mix and butter.

This fruity beast is delicious in all the right ways. Read the rest of this entry »

I wish I could give these a glowing report. Or a story. A nice story that ends with balmy temps and a nice beach and an ocean of oatmeal happiness.

Nay. It is not to be.

Don’t get me wrong — these were good. Really good.

These are basically a hybrid of two oatmeal cookie recipes I snagged from Greg Johnson’s Oatmeal CookieBlog, the Coffee Cake Cookies (my husband’s favorite cookie…ever) and the Better Than Grandma’s Oatmeal Cookies (one of my favorites).

I thought — I’ll combine them. Get the best of both worlds. Read the rest of this entry »
