I’ve got the Perfect Homemade All Butter Pie Crust to share today! Makes baking pies this season a delicious experience!
I shared this photo on Instagram a few weeks ago. It’s not perfect, but it shows what kind of fabulous dough this recipe makes
This recipe is in my Cookbook, however I’ve updated a few steps so I thought I’d share it!
Happy Christmas week!!

My Bakery Style Ginger Molasses Cookies make the perfect cookie for gift giving this Holiday season!
One of my favorite cookies of the season are by far ginger molasses cookies. One little secret….stick them in the freezer. They stay chewy, chilled and beyond fabulous. That’s how I eat these babies straight from the freezer. Maybe I’m a weirdo, but trust me
Stock up on molasses, you will be making these cookies over and over….and over.

I’ve made these fun white chocolate dipped Nilla Wafers with my boys a number of times over the last few weeks and just have to share them….even though it’s a no brainer recipe. Sometimes it’s nice to see you can jazz up a cookie and make it fun and festive for a last minute Holiday party!!
You would have thought I just baked a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies after I made these with the boys and their friends. They were gone as fast as I put them out!

Oh my gosh….10 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? Are we ever really ready? Ha! I love this time of year so much, craziness and all.
Why is frosting so good? Well I guess because it is mostly butter and sugar, ha! I am in love with this peppermint crunch frosting. It is good enough to eat right from a spoon or use it to frost your favorite baked goods. It’s really good with graham crackers too!
Break out some butter and be prepared to fall in love with this recipe!
I am thrilled to be partnering with Fisher Nuts to bring you a new Holiday treat. I’ve created for you my Candied Pecan Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Covered Oreos. They make the perfect gift for family and friends. All of my favorite flavors wrapped up in one festive cookie.
This is a great recipe to get your kids involved in helping. They love adding the pecans and candy cane pieces to the cookies.
Hope you enjoy!
My Salted Caramel Crunch White Chip Cookies make a perfect cookie for every sweet tooth!
What a pleasure partnering with Stacy’s Pita Chips to highlight their new Limited Time flavor, Salted Caramel. My family has been munching on these the last couple weeks and can’t get enough! It’s the perfect amount of sweet and salty that makes for the best snack any time of the day. Stacy’s spends 14 hours on each batch of pita chips to be sure they are perfect. That’s some love!
I had my boys help me prepare this new cookie idea and they declared it their new favorite cookie. I am positive this will be a family favorite in your home too. Just in time for your Holiday baking!

My Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch Cookies make the perfect Holiday cookies for your family and friends!
There’s just something about peppermint and chocolate that are so perfect for Christmas. Kind of like peanut butter and jelly. They just go together like magic.
I won’t apologize for all of the peppermint recipes you’ll see this month, because it’s just too good of a combo to pass up this month! Sit back, get in the kitchen and bake some amazing cookies!
