Gluten Free Brownie Cookies

Gluten Free Brownie Cookies

Christmas is when I bake the most. Every weekend, it's a new cookie recipe I like to try. And these days, I find myself reaching for my gluten free brownie cookies over and over again!  These brownie cookies are fudgy in the center and slightly crisp on the edges. They pack a huge chocolate flavor and have that umami note that make it my (and my family's) favorite cookies EVER! I love brownies. And cookies. So the idea of combining both brownies AND cookies into an easy-to-make recipe, is for me, the embodiment of Holiday baking πŸ˜‰ 

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

I recently saw a recipe for stained glass cookies made with hard candy or boiled sweets. They looked so pretty, but because I'm not a huge fan of those candies, I decided to make my own stained glass Christmas cookies using hard caramels instead.  I chose regular-flavor hard caramels, as well as coffee and lemon flavored ones for a more "grown-up" twist on this recipe. The result is a less transparent cookie for the opaque caramel, but that tastes infinitely better in my opinion! πŸ˜‰

If you love Earl Grey tea as much as I do, then you'll LOVE today's post! ☕πŸͺ My daughter and I made these Earl Grey cookies for our tea party last week , but I'm thinking this is going to become a regular treat in our house! These Earl Grey flavored cookies are shaped like a teabag and dipped in melted chocolate (YUM!), so I'm thinking they'd be perfect also for a garden party, baby or bridal shower brunch too.

Before we get with the tutorial, let me come clean with you. Cookie decorating is not my forte. In fact, I'm slightly scared of them. There, I've said it! Yes, sugar cookies decorated with royal icing scare the heck out of me! No, and I don't have some weird phobia about cookies...it's just that I am not patient at all, and think there are sooooo many steps to decorating cookies that I get bored and don't even bother.  I prefer to oooh and aaaah other people's creations, and so for my parties I often seek the help of the amazing professionals out there.

Christmas Lights Cookies Recipe with M&Ms

Christmas Lights Cookies Recipe with M&Ms

I ♥ cookies, but am no cookie-decorating doyenne, so when Mars asked to bake some Tasty Table Lights cookies using  M&M'S® Chocolate Candies Holiday Blend , I jumped at the chance! I mean, how cute to these look?! So yummy too! Not to mention easy to make, so even a child could do it! ;) These cookies would also be great for a cookie exchange party, and I can see them becoming a favorite tradition in our home for the Holidays! ;)

A Bright & Colorful Summer Party Fiesta

A Bright & Colorful Summer Party Fiesta

Fiestas are not only reserved for Cinco de Mayo. I personally, would have a fiesta any day of the week. Tacos, pinatas, Margaritas....the lot! So when my friend Gillian sent over her stunning party photos with a fiesta theme and get this, PINATA COOKIES (!!); I actually did a little dance. It's a softer take on the usually bright Mexican inspired theme. It has pastel colors and warm summer hues with a  stunning watercolor cake, and I reckon it would be PERFECT for a seasonal wedding, bridal shower, dinner party or girly birthday!
