Chocolate Creamy Cookies

Dove Creamy Chocolate Cookies

I think one of my favorite things to make during the holidays are cookies!  I love cookies and there is nothing better than a good chocolate cookie.  In order to have  good chocolate cookies you need good chocolate.  I love Dove PROMISES®. I remember the first time I had them years ago when a friend brought them with her to a girl’s weekend at the beach.  The chocolate was so smooth!  We also had too much fun reading the little “promises” that you find on the inside of each wrapper.

Each Christmas holiday my girls and I along with other various family members and friends get together for a Cookie Baking Day.  We always try out a few  new recipes plus a list of all our family favorites.

Perfectly Pumpkin Gooey Cookie Bars

Pumpkin Spice Magic Cookie Bars

Today’s recipe is one of those recipes that have been around for decades. Your mother made them and probably your grandmother. Originally they were called a Seven Layer Bar because there were 7 layers of goodness in one bar cookie. Today we’re calling them Perfectly Pumpkin Gooey Cookie Bars. I’ve made a few tweeks to the recipe and only used 6 layers. I left the coconut layer out because I’m not a fan of coconut. To make the recipe quicker and easier I’ve used one of Pillsbury® ‘s new fall [Continue Reading...]

It is pumpkin season – if you doubted it just look on Pinterest.  So in keeping with the flavor of the season I decided I needed to do a Recipe Redo of my favorite pumpkin cookie.  I welcomed our new neighbors with a plate of these Pumpkin Cookies this week and she declared them the best cookies she had ever had! For many years I was not a  pumpkin lover but I have seen the error of my ways and decided I needed to embrace pumpkin! I think I have succeeded! [Continue Reading...]

Mud Hen Bars

Mud Hen Bars

Today’s recipe is  a Recipe Redo and one I have had in my recipe file for years – it is also in our “Best of the Best Family Recipes” cookbook because it is a keeper. I have no idea why they are called “Mud Hen Bars”.  When I googled the name I discovered there is a Mud Hen, New Jersey so maybe they were first made there.  A Mud Hen Bar is the perfect solution to any chocolate, marshmallow, ooey, gooey craving you may be having.!! It starts with with [Continue Reading...]
