Nope, that is not a picture of cookies. I know. I normally don’t forget to take pictures of things I baked, but this time I did. So I am leaving you with hungry eyes today. And I’m sorry if now I’ve gotten the song in your head — for those too young to recall (I’m… Continue reading Cookie Season 2016: Green Tea Shortbread Cookies
The posts on Cookie Season 2016 continues with white chocolate chip cranberry oatmeal cookies! I normally don’t bake anything without chocolate (sorry, white chocolate doesn’t count), I don’t put dried fruits in my bakes, and when it comes to oatmeal cookies, I usually pass! But I have gone against all three points because these cookies… Continue reading Cookie Season 2016: White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
Seven years ago, I made these really awesome chocolate crinkle cookies for Cookie Season 2009. Remember how I said that this blog was meant to be a repository of recipes that I can refer back to on the interwebs, so I can access recipes I loved so long as I had access to a mobile… Continue reading Cookie Season 2016: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Favors for a 60th birthday party… No other words today. I am tired.
For a very long time now, I’ve been using a cut out butter cookie recipe that was passed to me by my mom as my “go-to” butter cookie recipe. I’ve even sold these cookies in various shapes and decorations (mostly for baby showers and other things baby-related). The recipe originated from Wilton, and I think… Continue reading Green Tea Butter Cookies
I really wish I had the foresight to name my blog “I Love Food” instead of “A Girl Bakes In New York” when I first created it. I originally intended for this blog to be only about my baking, but as time goes on, as with any other hobby, one finds that the passion morphs… Continue reading Love for Mobile Eateries and PB Cookie Sandwiches
Inspired after visiting Richard Blais’s one day only, pop-up Pork Inspiration Café (a partnership with some of America’s leading pork producers and the charity, Feeding America) to promote the use of “the other white meat” this past Thursday (and to help those in need, donating one serving to a local food bank for every meal… Continue reading Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
A couple of months ago, I was asked by my sister’s best friend from way back if I could come up with an idea for favors for her older sister’s baby shower. Having come from working on 2 wedding cakes, our heroine was feeling a little cocky and thought that this was going to be… Continue reading It’s a Boy! No, It’s A Girl! Wait, We Don’t Know Yet!
I am not a vegan. But since I learned about vegan glitter cookies that required no baking (and even attempted them myself — blog post later), I suddenly developed a fascination with vegan baking. Especially when my friend and I were walking down St. Mark’s and stopped inside a vegan bakery, where she bought (among… Continue reading Gluten-Free, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies: No Animals Were Harmed in the Making of These Cookies
When I first heard of Mexican wedding cookies, I immediately pictured a wedding reception in Mexico, full of cheery guests dancing, drinking and laughing, the Mexican Hat Dance playing in the background played by a Mariachi band (I don’t know where I get these images, either) a tray of these cookies sitting on the dessert… Continue reading Mexican Wedding Cookies
