Nutella Krinkle Cookies from ascrumptiouslife.com

Today’s recipe is my cookie for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. This year I made  Chocolate Hazelnut Krinkle Cookies – a new take on a classic.  Last week I told you the saga about misplacing my  former sister-in-law’s recipe for the traditional Chocolate Krinkle Cookies and needing to come up with another recipe.  So I decided […]

I participate in two cookie swaps each year- the Food Blogger Cookie Swap and my own. This year I decided to make Chocolate Krinkle cookies for the food blogger cookie swap, but I couldn’t find my former sister-in-law’s recipe.

Based on the traditional Tollhouse recipe, the Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a basic for every cook. This version features big bittersweet morsels and pecans. I also changed up the sugar to brown sugar ratio a little from the original.

Sugar Cookies for Valentines’ Day

Sugar Cookies - great for Valentines or any time - from ascrumptiouslife.com

I’ve had this  sugar cookie recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum for years. Even though they are called ‘Sugar Cookies’, I like them because they aren’t too sweet.  Of course when you add the Royal Icing, all bets are off. During the holidays, it seemed that taking the time to make (and especially decorate) shaped cookies […]
