Chai Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 […]

Milk & Cookies Cake

Milk & Cookies Cake

My favourite thing to bake lately has been cute little 6″ birthday cakes. This is no doubt due to the endless cake decorating videos I’ve been watching on Instagram (faves: @chelsweets,  @whippedcakeco, @bakingwithblondie, @karleeskupcakes). Making mini versions has been a great way to practice a few specific things (i.e. using a bench scraper to get smooth […]

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 […]

This week for Baked Sunday Morning, we’re baking Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Cookies. They’re actually supposed to be Chocolate Cinnamon Chipotle Sugar Cookies, but I wasn’t too keen on that. I have enough problems with mixing chocolate and cinnamon together, so I just left the chipotle powder out. The dough for these cookies was easy to […]

At the beginning of the year, I declared it the YEAR OF CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES on Planet Byn. In keeping with my kitchen procrastination tendencies, it then took me four months to try another recipe, but here we are. For my first venture outside of My Favourite, I went with a Cook’s Illustrated’s Perfect Chocolate Chip […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Derby Cookies

Derby Cookies

The Kentucky Derby has pretty much zero significance in my life. I think I watched it once, but it didn’t involve a big floppy hat or a mint julep which, in my opinion, are the two most appealing parts of this holiday. For Baked Sunday Mornings this week, the Baked Boys are running with the bourbon […]

After almost six years of blogging, it’s finally time to talk about one of the most important issues of our time: what makes a good Chocolate Chip Cookie? Before we get into that though, it must be stated that a warm, homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie is 100% one of the simple joys in my life. […]
