This cherry pie cookies recipe was made with love for the February Creative Cookie Exchange. They’re going to give you the delicious taste of cherry pie in a cute, bite sized cookie.
Welcome to a new weekly feature, Saturday Sweets! This recipe for orange-carrot cookies with cream cheese frosting is from the Better Homes and Gardens Ultimate Cookie Book. See my review of the book here.
After pouring through the pages of The Ultimate Cookie Book, I really had a tough time deciding which cookie recipe to make first. Luckily for me, I didn’t have to make the decision, because I put it into my husband’s capable hands.
The good news is, out of the 500+ recipes in the book, Brian chose a cookie for me to make that has a tiny bit of a healthy edge. Yup, these delicious cookies have carrots in them!
That’s the good news, but the great news is that these cookies taste just like a slice of carrot cake. They’ve got a burst of orange, a nutty crunch from walnuts, and a thick cream cheese frosting. Hello delicious cookie!
This time of the year, I’m thankful for memories of family and food that I loved as a kid. For me, comfort food like my mom’s chunky applesauce and cookie recipes like these chocolate crinkles are a way for me to remember loved ones who are no longer in my life. This month, The Recipe Redux challenge is to take a favorite holiday recipe and give it a healthy makeover.
Perhaps unlike you, I grew up in a family that didn’t spend time in the kitchen baking treats. I’m not exactly sure why, but thankfully, my godmother loved to bake. Whenever I visited my godparents, there was usually a fresh batch of biscuits or a warm plate full of cookies or brownies around. Chocolate crinkle cookies were, and still are, one of my favorites, especially around the holidays. There’s something special about the chewy, chocolate loaded goodness that grabs my heart. The powdered sugar on my fingers and lips, falling down onto my clean shirt never bothers me one bit. It just makes the cookies taste that much better!
