Black Forest Chocolate Cookies

Our assignment this week for Baked Sunday Mornings was a batch of Black Forest Cookies. The Baked Boys took the classic Black Forest flavours and turned them into a cookie with lots of chocolate, dried cherries and white chocolate chips. Personally, I’m anti-Black Forest everything, and you can read more on that here, from when we […]

The Classics

Every part of my annual Champagne & Cookies Christmas party fills me with so much joy. I love spending the weeks leading up to it finalizing my baking list, stocking my freezer with treats, and then finally sharing them with all my friends. This is truly my favourite holiday tradition, and it just keeps getting […]

Pretzel Linzers

Smitten Kitchen has a new cookbook out! I’ve really tried to curtail my cookbook acquisitions over the last couple of years, but obviously I needed to have this one. I bought it when I went to see Deb on her cookbook tour back in October. She didn’t do an interview or Q&A like last time, […]

Chai Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, we all agree that Pumpkin Spice-flavoured things have jumped the shark, and everyone is over it. I propose that we now move on to Chai Spice in our baked goods! It’s still in the same cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg family, but with a few additions: cardamom, cloves, allspice and black pepper. I love drinking hot chai during the […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

We’re getting back to basics with this week’s Baked Sunday Morning recipe: the original Baked recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. I’m actually pretty partial to this peanut butter cookie recipe as my go-to, but I’m always open to trying something new. This recipe meets my main cookie criteria: slightly crispy edges, but soft and chewy […]

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringues

I can’t believe this is our last recipe from Baked Occasions! I also can’t believe it’s been three years since the book came out and I went to NYC for the launch party; truly one of the best days of my life! We’re finishing up the book with these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies. I actually […]

Peanut Butter Butterscotch Chips

I can’t believe we’re down to the last few recipes in Baked Occasions! Most of them are cookie recipes since the Baked Boys included a “12 Days of Cookies” section for Christmas, and we need to catch up. This week we mixed up these Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies, which are just a straightforward peanut butter […]

Old-School Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I already have an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that I love, but I was still looking forward to trying the Baked Occasions version this week. This is a pretty standard cookie recipe, with a few exceptions: Instead of adding the rolled oats whole, you grind the majority of them up in a food processor first […]

Levain Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

At the beginning of last year I declared it The Year of the Chocolate Chip Cookie on Planet Byn, and then promptly proceeded to make a grand total of two versions in all of 2016 (#typical). It may take me forever, but I’m still committed to this worthy cause of trying all the cookies recipes I […]

Linzer Hearts

I think I’m ready to declare that Valentine’s Day is my favourite baking holiday, or at least tied with Easter. There’s no pressure, no expectations, and if I can spread some love with treats, well that’s my joy in life anyway. I haven’t blogged my Valentine’s Day baking in the past, with the exception of these […]
