Almost Homemade-Fruit Pizza!

I had a Relief Society activity last week and we served fruit pizza.  They were so yummy and they looked so beautiful!  There were extra cookies and frosting…so I volunteered to take the plain cookies home.  (I know…that was nice of me…right, hey, everyone else took the fruit cookies home!)  I froze the cookies and the frosting and saved them for our Sunday dinner!fruit pizzas Continue reading

cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I went shopping the other day at a little specialty grocery store called, Meiers Meats & Fine Foods, in Highland, Utah.  They always have such fun little treats, cookies, breads, and cute gift ideas…as well as wonderful meats!

I picked up a bag of mini cinnamon chips and just could not wait to try them out in some cookies!  You can buy cinnamon chips at most groceries stores in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips.  

I tried these out on my husband, who was skeptical at first, and then ended up loving them.  Then I tried them out on a granddaughter that thinks there in nothing better than a Snickerdoodle cookie and she also was hooked on these!

This recipe is from On Sugar Mountain and it has the addition of cornstarch, which she says will keep your cookies soft and fresh for a longer time.  I don’t know if that is true because these cookies did not last long enough to find out!  :)Cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies Continue reading


Valentine M&M’s Cookies

I must really have Valentines on the brain this week, because this is the 4th Valentines post this week!  

There must be love in the air here!

Today I have these yummy M&M’s Valentine cookies.  This recipe has been in our family for a long time.  The name of these cookies on my recipe card is:  “Leora’s Chocolate Chip Cookies”  This is a nickname that I have had for my sister for a long time, I don’t really even remember where it came from, but I remember saying “Leora” in a mocking tone every time I called her that!  Some things just never go away, do they? 

Anyway, here is my version of these yummy cookies:

This is just a basic Toll House Cookie recipe that you bake as pan cookies, so that is why they are so easy!  I used butter in these to give them that rich, buttery flavor!
