Sugar Cookie Bars

Oh hi, baby brain. I thought you only existed during pregnancy, but you seem to be back in full force now. Or is it just officially “mom brain,” aka my new life? As someone who tends to have her head in the clouds a little bit anyway (spacey, creative, however…

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

Have you ever thought “I wish I could eat a sugar cookie AND a cinnamon roll at the same time?” Me either. So, these are the answer to the dreams we didn’t even know we had 😉 These cinnamon roll sugar cookies are insane. Seriously, they’re the perfect holiday treat…

S’mores Cookie Dough Bars

Happy Tuesday! This past weekend I was in Phoenix for wedding planning and dress shopping. A recap post will be up later this week! So for now, let’s focus on these beauties: a s’mores and cookie dough mash up. Let’s face it: I don’t usually have the patience to take step-by-step…

Pumpkin Cake Mix Cookies

Aka “sometimes we just need life to be easier” cookies. Like when you wake up before your 4:45 a.m. alarm for the gym (why?) and then you hit your head on the squat bar and end up with a big forehead bruise. Or, when you spill coffee on your keyboard at work…

But when I pointed it out to her, my mom immediately suggested this alternative recipe…

Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies

Remember when I said I couldn’t stop eating these chocolate snickerdoodle cookies? I was not even exaggerating: I had to start giving them away to get them out of the house!  They are perfectly soft and crispy and fluffy and chewy and chocolately and cinnamony…. all at the same time.…

Engagement + Cookies

Before talking about Oreos and such (I know, how could I delay such an exciting conversation?), I want to share our engagement! Ryan proposed to me on a trip to San Diego last weekend. We’ve been together more than three years, and we’re excited to make it official! Now, for the cookies! Because a celebration…

No-bake coconut blueberry truffles

Has anyone else seen the cakes with a flag inside on Pinterest? I mean, seriously?! They are so cool. But, let’s be real: Anything I’ve tried like that has been a huge disaster. The cake I attempted with different colored Christmas “ornaments” inside? Laughable. But it was a delicious blob – and…

Mini Coconut Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas

Happy June! It’s been a crazy busy couple of weeks, but really, I’m never too busy for cookies. Priorities, people 😉 And these cookies are a must-make. They’re sweet summery goodness: an eat-by-the-pool after some delicious BBQ kind of treat. I adapted my go-to sugar cookie recipe by adding coconut extract, coconut…
