Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate Filling

Sandwich Cookies close up

I was asked to make a dainty tray for church and so I am thinking “What to do?” First I thought Whoopie Pies because that was on my mind for a while. But I also wanted to make a mix of things, not just one. Besides, I had some things left over.

Instagram Cookies


Last year a friend asked me to make some snacks for her. She opened her own photography studio with some friends of hers. It was a Grand Opening and she wanted me to make some sweet snacks for the party. I made Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes, Raspberry Cake Pops as well as these Instagram Cookies.

Pumpkin Spice Autumn Sandwich Cookies


The other day I thought about what to make for Autumn. My mind wandered around my kitchen and what type of tools and things I have there. I know there a bunch of things for Halloween, but I am not there yet. However, I wanted to make something, something that’s not pie for that matter. Finally, I remember that I have leave cookie cutters, as well as a pumpkin and acorn. They are originally for pie but great for cookies too. Now all that I had to decide for was a recipe.

Banana Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

Browsing Facebook or Pinterest can lead to some interesting discoveries. One of those was this particular recipe form Two Peas & Their Pod. Bananas, pudding, and chocolate chips in one recipes? Yes please!!! Especially since my husband is a fan of “banana everything” (his words).

Peanut Butter Cookies

When most people think about North America/USA/Canada and cookies they think Chocolate Chip Cookies. I love them myself but I also love variety, so Peanut Butter Cookies seem to be a good way to switch it up. Unless you are allergic to peanuts, in that case you should stay away from them. Fortunately, neither am I not my husband allergic and so I baked some last night. My husband is a little cookie monster, having cookies in the cookie jar is a must. I promised for ages to make some more but never had the time.

Helene’s Easter Cookies

May I introduce to you: Helene. She won the Easter Giveaway Contest and was quite excited about the cookie cutter from the beginning. They arrived in New Zealand on time and she sent me a pictures of her cookie. So I asked her if she would be so kind to write a guest post for the blog. She had the same thought and was happy to write something for me. Here is her thoughts on baking, cookies and blog entries.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – Husband favourite

The chocolate chips are hiding.

There is one more Easter treat I will share with you, however, first I have a classical cookie for you. (I know that Easter baking is a bit late now but a) I was busy and b) I am not one of those who bakes a month beforehand.) This is the first cookie I ever made in Canada. Basically, my husband urged me to make them, he’s a fan, major fan. As he said while I made them: “Best cookie evaaaa!” Love my hubby, he has his real funny moments once in a while. The Oatmeal cookie is another classic I shall say in North America. My husband likes his with chocolate chips.

Play Dough Cookies

It is March, which means ins some parts of the world spring is on its way. Well, here in lovely Saskatoon spring will have a later appearance, we still have snow everywhere. Actually, we had a snow storm the other day but we hope warm weather is on its way. If you don’t have the colours outside you should make sure you have them inside, on your plate, or in your hand for that matter. These lovely cookies are the perfect opportunity and so much fun to look at.

German Gingerbread

Gingerbread angle, any shape as long as it’s fresh.

This recipe concludes, for now, the Christmas Cookie bake off. In total I made 10 recipes and I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did when making them. I think there will be one or two more cookie recipes later on but this is a good base for your Christmas. So, with further ado I present the German Gingerbread recipe.

Now you might say “Gingerbread is Gingerbread, where is the difference?” Well, the other day I got gingerbread man cookies in a cookie exchange and they were good but different. (Thanks Melissa for making them for us.) The ones I got were flatter than I am used to and more crunchy. I haven’t really compared recipes with the maker of said gingerbread men so I can not give any details about that difference. Check out my recipe and be the judge.
