Brown Sugar Snickerdoodles

I received a copious amount of brown sugar from Dixie Crystals as part of the Third Annual Good Cookies Food Bloggers' Valentine's Event. The decision to craft a recipe around their generous gift, however, was my own. It's a terrific day to talk about dessert! Wait - isn't every day a good day to talk… Continue reading Brown Sugar Snickerdoodles

Cranberry Orange Scones

I'm starting to think I'll put cranberry in anything I bake these days. Cookies. Trail mix. And definitely these delicious cranberry orange scones!

Probably because they're soft, fresh, buttery, and can… Continue reading Soft + Fluffy Frosted Sugar Cookies

Red, White, + Blue Chocolate Layer Cake

I never was much of a baker. I could whip together a mean chocolate chip cookie when the mood struck and I do like an occasional sweet, but until lately, I never did a lot of baking. If I did bake, and didn't send what I made with Scott to work, it would just sit… Continue reading Red, White, + Blue Chocolate Layer Cake
