Scottish Shortbread Love

scottish shortbread

In the realm of all thangs cookie-like, shortbread is my fav. I could eat shortbread, in any form, every day. NomNomNom. While Garry prefers traditional shortbread, I also enjoy this Dark Chocolate Shortbread, which I think makes an excellent gift. As is my habit of finding all things delicious to share here, I stumbled upon […]

Russian Teacakes With a Delicious Twist

Russian Teacakes

Are you like me and already thinking about what kind of cookies you’re going to bake for Christmas?  YOU ARE?!  This is why we’re friends! While I like to shake up my cookie rotation every year, there are a few traditional classics that get made no matter what.  Russian Teacakes are one of those classics. […]

Easy Peasy Cheesecake Pie!

Easy Cheesecake Pie

Who doesn’t love a recipe they can’t ruin? WHO?! This is one of them. Cheesecake pie is easy, fast and ruin-proof, not to mention delicious. I make this recipe a few times a year, more if someone requests it as their birthday pie. (what? you don’t have a go-to birthday pie? um, THIS!) It’s been […]

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars? Yes, Please.

Credit this post with getting a jump on your pre-holiday baking ideas, or to WOW! guests that need wowing, with a bar that tastes like pie.

A Taste of Summer

Buttermilk Lime Shortbread Bars

These bars were a huge hit with pretty much everyone I shared them with the first time around and I didn’t want the summer to pass us by before sharing the recipe again. I likey buttermilk. I am fond of plucking a lime from my tree to stuff into my beer. I adore shortbread. Combine […]

Homemade Peach Cobbler

Homemade Peach Cobbler

More cobbler, y’all! First there was this one, made with blueberries and strawberries. Today, there is peach…PEACH COBBLER! Nommy nom nom. Before we get started, I did use fresh peaches in this cobbler, unlike last time when I used frozen blueberries and strawberries. Fresh or frozen works, but because it’s summer and fruit is a’plenty, […]

Homemade Fruit Cobbler That Will Make You Slap…Wait…Don’t Slap Anyone

Fruit Cobbler

Oh, mah babies. THIS. This cobbler came out of my oven smelling of sweet summer fruit and light cakey droolgoodness. I had to remind myself not to take a bite until it had cooled enough so it wouldn’t remove the skin from the roof of my mouth. THE TORTURE! As a good Southern gal, I […]

Natural Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

Natural Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

That title is a mouthful, right? So are these cookies: What I mean to say, however oddly stated, is that I made traditional peanut butter cookies with non-traditional peanut butter, aka natural peanut butter.  You know, the stuff you gotta stir.  The stuff with two ingredients: ground peanuts and salt.  The stuff with no sugar […]

Manhattan Cheesecake Revisted

Manhattan Cheesecake

A couple of years ago, I wrote about our family love of Manhattan Cheesecake.  Our love hasn’t waned one bit and I thought I’d share the recipe again for anyone who missed it the first go around.  (on the off chance you don’t feel like baking, Cheesecake Pie is an ideal alternative.) This: People.  I almost […]

Lemon Cream Pie

Lemon Pie

Who loves lemon pie?  You do!  Me?  Meh, it’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but I’m a chocolate gal. So why even bother? What am I doing making anything but chocolate bombs this or chocolate lava thats? I bother because both my MIL and Girl love them some lemony […]
