My Thoughts:

I was browsing through some cookbooks at my local library a few weeks ago and came across this cookbook in the new section. The cover spoke to me and I had to grab it. My family loves cookies and I’m always interested in trying some new recipes and was I ever surprised!

This cookbook has over 80 different cookie recipes. The author covers the basics, frostings, equipment, and includes helpful tips. There are tons of beautiful photographs too. What surprised me? There are some gluten free recipes in here too which is exactly what I needed! There’s even a dog biscuit recipe for your pups. This is pretty much a ‘something for everyone’ cookie book.

We ended up making a handful of cookie recipes from the book. Here are a few below with our reviews of each recipe.

Jude and Franklin’s Favorite Dog Biscuits:

What dog wouldn’t love some homemade peanut butter and pumpkin treats? These were so easy to make and my kids loved helping make them. All it takes is six ingredients! Dogs love pumpkin and peanut butter and they make the whole house smell wonderful when cooking.

We only had cat shaped cookie cutters which worked out perfect. Our dogs love cats!

They loved these and could barely wait.

Speaking for my dogs, I’d say this recipe gets:

5*****


Giant Funfetti Cookie Pizza:

I’ve never had luck with cookie pizzas. Most times they just don’t come out soft enough. This recipe is a new keeper.

This giant funfetti cookie pizza is in the sprinkle chapter, no surprise. It calls for 2/3 cup sprinkles!

I cooked this on a pizza stone because I don’t use pizza pans much and usually end up using cast iron. I wasn’t sure about that, so we went with a stone. It turned out perfect!

We ended up using 1/3 cup of sprinkles in the recipe and then added on some more for decoration.

I used a 1M wilton tip as suggestion in the recipe for the icing. I had to sneak a bite of this! It was delicious and there wasn’t anything left of it!

This recipe also gets:

5*****


Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies:

Cookies with only five ingredients always catch my attention. These are made with mainly peanut butter! I even used Skippy crunchy natural peanut butter which isn’t recommended, and they still came out perfect.

These were delicious and I didn’t feel guilty eating a few because they’re gluten free. This recipe gets:

5*****


Pistachio Cookies with Chocolate Chips:

Chocolate chip cookies with pistachio pudding and pistachios? Yummy! I love pistachios and these turned out pretty good. They weren’t as sweet as I expected, but the sugar content is a bit lower that a standard cookie recipe.

The cookie dough has a light green hue to it. So cool! I wish we would’ve made these for our holiday cookie gift tins this year.

We liked these a lot! Even the kids devoured them. This recipe gets:

5*****


Overall, this book is awesome! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. It would be a great gift for anyone who likes to bake and it’s written with easy instructions, perfect for a novice baker. I’m buying this one for sure. 5*****

    I taste tested all but the peanut butter/pumpkin dog treats, lol, and I can honestly say they were all scrumptious! I liked the pistachio chocolate chip cookies best because they were made with less sugar. It’s nice to have cookies and not be the one to have to make them. Thanks for the cookies Jen! Great post! 🐦

      1. LOL! I randomly found her when I needed a strawberry buttercream recipe for Kayley’s 2nd birthday cake 🙂 It was so delicious that I had to try more of her recipes! They’ve been so yummy, and no, I can’t eat the stuff either now, hahaha!! Wonderful to dream though….Hugs!!

    1. I hope you got a chance to bake today! I’m a little behind responding to comments and apologize.

      I did find out that there are recipes on Sally’s blog. You’ll have to let me know what you bake! ❤🍰

  5. Goodness this all looks so good. As soon as I get myself a decent baking tray, I’m going all in for making my own cookies, haha!
    My favorite thing to make is bread pudding, though. Old bread, vanilla sugar, sugar, milk and eggs = YUM! Sometimes I throw in some chocolate or apples as well. It’s delicious. 😀

    1. Oh my, I can’t say that I’ve ever had bread pudding! It sounds delicious though. 😀 Will have to look up a recipe. My only issue is not being able to have gluten, so I have to watch it. ❤ Thanks for sharing!
