Day 4: Half Moon Chocolate Espresso Cookies

For the fourth day of our 12 Days of Christmas Cookies, we celebrate with a chocolate chip cookie dipped in spiced espresso chocolate. It's an indulgent spin on the good ol’ chocolate chip cookie.

During the holiday season we tend to be a bit more decadent than usual. Maybe we put a little extra butter on the roast chicken, or add a splash of brandy to an otherwise standard black tea, or perhaps we indulge in a bit more pie than would be considered appropriate the rest of the year. Thinking along those same lines, I decided to create an extra delicious cookie recipe that toed those same lines of richness.

Day 3: Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's day three of our 12 Days of Christmas Cookies and today we get a recipe from Jocelyn Brubaker of Inside BruCrew Life.

I have been testing some new cookie recipes this month to see if we could add a new favorite to our top ten Cookie list. One of my favorite candies during the holidays is a chocolate covered cherry. I wanted to include that idea into one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes. With a few tweaks and changes, this delicious cookie happened.

Day 2: Caramel Corn Crunch Cookies

Today we get a special recipe from Shelly over at Cookies & Cups. Her recipe merges a couple of her favorite things: cookies and caramel corn. Not only is it very creative, it's sure to be a hit on your holiday cookie platter.

I love cookies. That's no huge secret. And caramel corn. Not a secret either. So I decided that it was high time to squish them together. Plus, we’re knee deep in “Cookie Season” right now and if ya aren’t baking, ya ain’t livin’!

This year I have teamed up with Challenge Dairy and have enjoyed every minute of it, and this month I wanted to create a cookie that would be buttery and lovely but also delicious and different!

A Little Thanksgiving Fun

As a 103 year old company, you would think we've seen it all. People express their love for butter in many different ways, but rarely is it as entertaining as this video done by The Holderness Family. It's lots of fun, and we hope it puts you in a good mood for the upcoming holidays.

Sweet Potato Soufflé

As a child, Suzanne had an extreme dislike for sweet potatoes, but all of that changed the day she tasted this light, creamy and very decadent casserole. She's been making it for years and wanted to share it with you for the upcoming holidays.

One Thanksgiving, I was invited to my friend Kirsten’s mother's house for dinner. I can honestly say her mom has to be one of the best cooks I have ever met. She had made a beautiful roasted turkey, complete with all the trimmings, including a wonderful smelling side dish. Yep, it was a sweet potato casserole!
