    Holy food porn! I haven’t made squat. I have been bastardizing a box of brownie mix and made espresso brownies twice, because I ate half of them!

    You are amazing, as always!

    Lady, you are one busy baker! I’ve made Molasses cookies so far and that’s it because I’m not a big baked goods fan (with some exceptions). Crazy, I know :)

    Wow, you’ve been busy! The red velvet chocolate chip cookies look, and sound delicious. For Christmas I always make three things; pepperoni bread, holiday granola (just made it, SO good!) and chocolate dipped waffle cones! Stay tuned for a post about that last one. I learned how to make them when I worked at a local ice cream shop!

    OMG Jessica these alll look beyond amazing! I swear, your cookies are enough to un-vegan and un-glutenfree me for a day. I’d pay the price though…but seriously wow. The soft gingersnaps look soo inviting. I mean all the cookies do, but something about those. My grandma used to call what you call PB Blossoms “Hershey’s Kiss Thumbprints”. I grew up on those :) And the double choc ones…with mint too. Wow….

    :)

    i made your sin city cookies this weekend – they are SO good and SO easy. Mine didn’t come out as fluffy as yours, I think it’s cause I overloaded them with cocoa haha o well. They are SO good. When are you posting the red velvet choc chip cookie recipe??

    I helped a friend make some christmas cookies to give away (for librarians, secretaries, etc.).
    We made these chocolate crinkle cookies that were to die for and cracker jack cookies! So glad those were given away :)

    The baking is in full force… I always make cookie tins for the managers that my husband works with (he is a restaurant chef/manager)
    Here’s my list:
    Outrageous Oreo Brownies
    Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars x 2 (his exec chefs favorite – 2 pans indeed)
    Jam Thumbprint Cookies
    Gingerbread House
    Black Forest Almond Cheesecake Bars (my original recipe!)
    Ginger Molasses Cookies
    Melting Moments
    Chocolate Irish Cream Cheesecake

    This is SO my favorite time of the year!!!
