Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I was worried that we wouldn’t have enough desserts for Christmas. Don’t laugh! I worry about serious things like this. I’m glad I was worried enough because while I liked the mince pies I made I’m more of a chocolate dessert love than a fruit dessert lover.

Christmas Funfetti Shortbread

It was my job this year to bring dessert for Thanksgiving. I brought a pumpkin pie but I also brought these Christmas Funfetti Shortbread Cookies. It felt appropriate that as we finished Thanksgiving dinner that we started the Christmas season by eating cookies and decorating my sister’s Christmas tree.

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let’s pretend that I’m not posting cookies with black and orange chocolate chips in December. Yet again time has got away with me and I have a huge backlog of posts. I never seem to be ahead of schedule.  Thank you Pinterest for making me feel bad. I don’t have any amazing 12 Days of Christmas planned. I managed to make it into work without slipping in the ice and falling on my bum. Now that’s a win!

Pumpkin Spice M&M Cookies

Pumpkin Spice M&M Biscoff Cookies

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Hard to believe that this is the first time I’ll be having Thanksgiving on American soil since 2000. I was a junior in high school that year and just got my learners permit. That makes me feel really old now. I’m easing myself back into the tradition this year. I’m going to my sisters house in New Hampshire. We’re getting up a dawn and driving over there from Connecticut on Thursday morning. I’m keeping my fingers crossed it doesn’t snow too hard.

Salted Caramel Macaroons

Salted Caramel Macaroons

This is the second recipe that I made from The Macaroon Bible. I made this right after we moved into our new house. I had my Kitchenaid and one baking sheet and that’s about it. I had to wait about two months for the rest of our stuff to arrive by boat. I hate getting used to a new oven. Our oven in London was a sleek giant German one (massive compared to the average British one). The oven in the new house is a regular electric GE one.

Pumpkin Spice Macaroons

Pumpkin Spice Macaroons

These macaroons are delicious but before I get to them I have to tell you that I’m so excited my sister and I are going to watch a taping of Maury Povich next week! I’m a huge lover of trashy TV. Talk shows, stupid girly shows, weight loss shows, I love them all. I’ve never gotten into The Real Housewives Franchise but I have always been a fan of Maury. Back when I was in college Maury wasn’t on in the UK yet and my friend would record episodes on a VCR in the US (how old do I feel now!) and bring them back for us to watch in her dorm room. We’d watch episodes of Maury and Cheaters after Countdown.
