After School Sweets #tbt

The school bells rings in less than a week. We’d better take our after-school snack game up a notch! One of our Loaded Oatmeal Cookie Butter Blossoms will definitely not be enough to feed our hungry students. Better make a double batch, ummm make it a triple! We hope you a wonderful start this school year!

Sweet Spring?

What’s up with this weather? Yesterday it felt like summertime and now we’re back to winter. Guess we can’t hang up our parkas yet. One thing we never hang up is our aprons because Saturday means baking anytime of the year. And anytime is a great time to get creative with our standard oatmeal cookie recipe. Our Butter Brickle Oatmeal Cookies have just become our new favorite way to change things up. Maybe they will be your’s too!

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Make the above recipe except substitute Heath Brickle for Heath Bits and leave out the chocolate and frosting. Sprinkle with sea salt (optional).

City Sweets

We have had a lot of fun being tourists in our city. From riding the streetcar to trying out hip downtown restaurants, the city has been our favorite destination. Lucky for us the city offers lots and lots of sweets. In particular, one day we sampled a delicious cookie at quaint little downtown cafe. So delicious, in fact, that we knew we’d need to have another one soon. Good thing we love to bake because Ultimate Sea Salt Cookies are what you will find in our oven this Saturday. With a little bit of salt and a lot of sweet they’re the perfect way to reminisce about our wonderful adventures in our very own city.Ultimate Sea Salt Cookies

Recipe:

Follow the recipe for our Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies, except replace the M&Ms with butterscotch chips and sprinkle with sea salt before baking. YUM!
