Vanilla Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

 Is it grey and rainy where you are? This weather is what I would expect London to be like- except colder. Everyone rushing around, sloshing around in the sludge accumulating at various street intersections; white knuckles from clutching their jackets closed as the wind rustles their hair. But one of the best parts about cold and rainy  ...

Gingerbread Skor Biscotti

Gingerbread has the winter holiday season written all over it. It resides in the nooks and crannies of its bubbly texture, intermingling with the warm spices and sugar, and disperses into the air with each gentle snap of a bite. But I decided that this year I wasn’t just making gingerbread men or cake.  I was going to make gingerbread  ...

Dead-Easy Banana Chocolate Cookies

I went to the gym this morning. And that was about all I accomplished. When I was at University, I managed to workout 4-5 days a week no-problem.

Italian Polenta Cookies

These cookies are the perfect balance of sweet and buttery. And by that I mean, a hint of sugar, and lots of creamy buttery deliciousness. Don’t get me wrong, these cookies are extremely light on the tongue and they even melt in your mouth. The lemon zest adds a lightness that pairs beautifully with the slightly crispy cookie edge. They  ...

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

 When I was younger, I used to get frustrated with my chocolate chip cookies. I would follow the recipe so carefully, I knew not to over-mix the batter… and yet I still always ended up with really flat cookies. I always wanted ones that were slightly cakier and thicker, like in the windows of the various bakeries I had seen, and less  ...

Double Chocolate Dream Cookies

Cookies are one of my favourite treats- they’re perfectly portioned (large is a portion!) and can come in a variety of textures and flavours. But one particular kind of cookie always seemed lackluster to me: double chocolate cookies. You would think that a cookie with cocoa in the batter and chunks of melty chocolate throughout would  ...
