This is one of my FAVORITE desserts. I have been making this recipe for the past 20 years. I found it long ago in a Betty Crocker Cookbook when I first began to teach myself how to cook. It is a simple, classic staple for fall….. and a MUST HAVE for Thanksgiving.
Warm Apple Crisp
An All-Time FAVORITE of mine! A must have for Thanksgiving too! This recipe is good for 1-9x11 dish OR 2-9" pie's in crust. Can be used or without pie crust.
My boys are spoiled. I love tweaking and trying new things, and I love that they let me test all my concoctions out on them. haha Something new almost every night. Tonight’s new treat….. a twist on the plain chocolate chip cookie. Tonight I decided to add 1 tsp of Almond Extract to the mix, and WOW, was it ever GOOD! It gave it a bit more depth and flavor. No one knew what I had added….. they just knew that this cookie, tasted different. Better! hahaha So, this one was a winner! If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
Chocolate Chip Cookies with an Almond Twist
A delicious chocolate chip cookie with an added extra depth.
I don’t know about you guys, but one of my FAVORITE cookies happens to be Oatmeal Raisin. Unfortunately for me they are not a huge hit in my house. I can not explain to you the level of sadness I feel in my heart over this. HAHAHA Normally I don’t make anything my family doesn’t like or won’t eat. However, this time I was bound and determined to find a way to bake an oatmeal cookie that everyone would love and enjoy. This recipe is it. SO good that even my son’s best friend who loathes oatmeal cookies, also LOVES this recipe! So, let’s get on to making these phenomenal cookies!
* 1 cup butter (softened)
* 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
