Cookie little girl?

So far this week,there has been not a stitch sewn around here.  Instead my free time has been spent in the kitchen.  Baking Cookies....

Monday after work and dinner it was Lemon Crinkles This was my first time making this cookie recipe,I was intrigued by the ingredients,not to mention that lemon is a favorite of mine.  Although my cookies do not look as pretty as the ones in the link above,they are still pretty tasty :)

Tuesday evening I made Pumpkin Snickerdoodles This is the second time making these little gems,and they are just as good as the first time!  This recipe is a keeper for sure :)  The pumpkin is not at all over powering,but rather subtle.  This recipe makes around 4 dozen give or take a few,depending on how big you make them.

Tonight I made these Cran~Pistachio Cookies Again mine did not turn out pretty and plump like the ones pictured in the link above :(  I think that it has something to do with the altitude,or the amount of butter used.  Next time I am going to try using a half a stick less of butter and see if my cookies do not turn out so flat.  This recipe also yielded about 4 dozen.

They taste like Pistachio pudding to me,which is fine since I like it,and it is one of Mr. P's favorites!  Have you guessed that I have a bake sale coming up this weekend?  I am keeping one dozen from each batch and taking the rest to the sale.


  1. Lemon Crinkles sound so good. I love lemon too, as it's so refreshing. Good luck with the bake sale!

  2. Oh the cran-pistachio cookies sound so yummy! I am a decent baker and cook, and sometimes my cookies also turn out flat. I think it has something to do with the temperature of the butter, maybe a little too soft? But I'm no expert. I'm sure your cookies will be a hit! They are all a little different from the regular ones you see at bake sales. Good luck!

  3. Good luck with the bake sale--I'm sure your cookies will sell quickly!
