Puff Pastry Strawberry Coconut Cookies

These are super easy and quickly-done (provided you’ve made the puff pastry in advance or bought it) cookies that go well with ice-cream and fruit salad.

Marzipan-filled Honey Cookies

These are fabulous cookies. Every time my cake decorating projects require marzipan, I make a double batch, so I could use it also as a filling for the cookies. It’s not quite necessary to decorate or shape them into hearts… Continue reading →

Chocolate Wasabi Shortbread Cookies

Spicy, salty, chocolaty sweet, delicately sandy, but also crunchy… In other words – delicious cookies. I’ve already blogged about my love to this flavor combo. Spicy wasabi ganache I dipped the shortbread in is exactly the same one I used… Continue reading →

One Cornmeal Dough – Two Different Biscotti: Poppy Seed Wild Blueberry Candied Lemon and Sesame Biscotti

These are very different in taste, although they are made from the same cornmeal dough. I am cutting some corners here: Christmas is so close. One batch yields about a dozen and a half of each kind. But since biscotti… Continue reading →

Chocolate Matcha Poker Chip Cookies

These are actually easier to make than it might seem. The process is similar to forming the Checkerboard cookies, only here the core is a matcha-colored cylinder which is subsequently wrapped into striped dough (alternating chocolate and matcha strips), then… Continue reading →

Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Cookies

Finally, here’s a long ago promised post, part two of the DB challenge. The recipe (another Gale Gand’s) makes an enormous amount of cookies. It seemed a bit boring to make them all plain vanilla (by the way, there’s not… Continue reading →

Coconut Scones with Pineapple-Vanilla Jam

I went to our grocery market a couple of days ago searching for some nice berries (everyone seems to be blogging about such wonderful strawberries; I developed a strong craving). But the berries were very much so-so (it’s not the… Continue reading →

Yogurt Panna Cotta with Rosemary Cornmeal Cookies

In the large family of creamy desserts the panna cotta is the easiest and fastest one to prepare. It simply sets with gelatin; but what really matters is the quantity of the gelatin used. Too much of the last and… Continue reading →

“Heart To Give” Cookies

It’s a bit late, sorry, but I couldn’t find any time to post these before or on Valentine’s Day. The cookies were sent to my son’s class celebration party last Friday. But this post is not entirely about these cookies…. Continue reading →

Pine Nut Honey Squares (Rectangles)

I don’t just love the flavor of these nuts, I also respect their softness, their slicing cooperativeness. And there’s a significant benefit from the waste-free cutting – the less trimmings and shattered pieces you have, the slimmer you are (well,… Continue reading →

Cuccidati (Italian Fig Cookies)

Maybe not so photogenic, these cookies are amazingly good. There are a lot of similar recipes around, and I, myself, have tried about four or five of them. But I’m not in search for the perfect recipe anymore, I’m quite… Continue reading →

Chocolate Basil Crinkles

Basil pairs nicely with chocolate, well, at least in my opinion. The crinkles are not the only chocolate things I flavor with this herb. I like to flavor French chocolate ganache tart and pots de crème with basil, it is… Continue reading →

Tan Fingers

…which are basically the shortbread fingers or squares (if you wish to cut them like so) with a caramel-sort-of layer in the middle. According to Nick Malgieri, the cookies are very popular in New Zealand. I’ve never been there and… Continue reading →

Twisted Cookies from the Val d’Aosta (Torcettini di Saint Vincent)

These yeast-risen cookies are a cross between a bread stick and a caramelized puff pastry palmier. The cookies are crunchy – you can easily tell this by their look. But they are not that hard so deciduous wiggly teeth of… Continue reading →

Anise Pistachio Biscotti

These poor things were baked to be crushed into biscotti crumbs needed for executing another dessert (getting ahead of the story: which is delicious and being posted later :). But I liked the outcome enough to give them their own… Continue reading →

Pineapple Coconut Cookies

I posted the recipe of these cookies quite a while ago. But since then I’ve got a really pretty bowl to serve them. So, here they are – new photos of my old favorite cookies. Pineapple Coconut Cookies recipe…

Brownie Lollipops with Milk Chocolate and Caramel Sauces

This is a neat solution for kids parties. Wooden sticks as handles eliminate sticky fingers and minimize the mess. But watch for the double dippers! The brownie recipe is from Nick Malgieri’s “Chocolate”. The brownies are good, very fudgy, of… Continue reading →

Oatmeal and Coconut Raspberry Jam Bars

This is the recipe I often use when there’s a need in a quick and full-proof dessert. All ingredients are always in my (and probably yours too) pantry. It’s an absolute favorite among the children.
