Food on Friday ~ Cookies

Life is better with fresh baked cookies in it.

In everything I’ve shared with you in Food on Friday, I haven’t posted much about baked stuff, mostly because I’m terrible at baking.  I have no idea why that is ~ but there you go.

On the other hand, I do like cookies, (except we call them biscuits here in England), and if I ever called at a friend’s house and they’d made any of the cookies / biscuits featured in this week’s Food on Friday, I guess I’d have to force myself and eat some / a lot.

From Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest we have some nice looking browned butter coconut chocolate chip cookies.  Tieghan says these are both delicious and easy, and I have no doubt that she’s correct on both fronts.  Anyhow I like both chocolate and coconut, and I like them better together.

Some more chocolate chip cookies, (why not?), this time Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower has a great recipe for soft and chewy cherry chocolate chip cookies.  Andrea says these cookies are a perfect snack for road trips, and as you all should know, I love road trips.

You know what?  When it comes to cookies you almost can’t go wrong if you add chocolate, and Amanda at Chez le Rêve Français has one of my favourite combinations with her chunky chocolate and hazelnut cookies.

As you might expect Dana, the Minimalist Baker has some very good recipes for cookies, and this recent post caught my eye.  So how about; vegan trail mix cookies (gluten-free + grain-free), would you like to try those?  I had thought of featuring Dana’s recipe for 1-bowl ginger cookies (gluten free) but thought you may like the trail mix recipe better.

A blog post about cookies would not be complete if it didn’t include a recipe for traditional Scottish shortbread.  So here, from Scottish-at-Heart.com we have the best Scottish shortbread recipe.  Although there are actually two recipes and a lot of other good information in this link.  And, if you’ve never had proper Scottish shortbread ~ then try some, right away.

I am really not certain how his would work in the USA, but here in England we also have savoury ‘biscuits’, and across the pond you may even call these biscuits instead of cookies.  Anyhow, from Petra at Food Eat Love I’m giving you a recipe for chilli cheese buttermilk biscuits.

And finally for this week, what would Food on Friday be without a recipe collection.  So from Baking Mad we have a whole bunch of cookie recipes, (they don’t say how many and I haven’t counted them), ((actually there are 57 recipes on this page, and that’s so cool)).  To go with a coffee I particularly like the look of the vanilla sugar cookies from Nielsen-Massey.

  2. I was once a ‘foodie’ and still enjoy baking – everyone’s favorite recipe is my chocolate chip cappuccino cookie – a basic chocolate chip recipe (it’s like the Mrs. Field’s cookie) but with espresso added. The coffee flavor adds a lot and counterbalances the sweetness. I had to mail them home for years. 🙂 These days I make biscotti a lot. The recipes you’ve shared here look great, so glad you shared! 🙂 (Alas, I have no pig emoji to place here!)

    1. I’m still fond of food….. cookies especially.
      Your cappuccino cookie sounds fabulous.
      Biscotti is nice, but I think I’d rather have your chocolate chip cappuccino cookies.
      ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Aaarrrggghhhh … of all the things I did not need to see … delicious cookies beckoning to me! I never met a cookie I didn’t like, and unfortunately, considering I am seriously insulin-dependent Type I diabetic, I am a very good cookie-maker! These all look delicious … I shall try just a bite of this one … a little taste of that one … oh and look! Shortbread! {drooling}. Thanks Jack! 😊 Hugs!!! ❤

      Don't worry about being a very good cookie-maker and not being able to eat them all, I can eat your cookies for you.
      Love and Hugs ❤ ❤ ❤

  4. I love baking, I’d open a bakery restaurant if I could. I am saving this cuz I want to make shortbread. Cookies are a specialty of mine, I mail them all over the place.
    When I in a place I can cook.
    I’m also not bad with the biscuit which I thought were scones only in a circle…..blueberry ones are the best! Ok, chocolate chip ones are. Cheese ones are even better!

    1. Cool, somehow it doesn’t surprise me that you’re a great baker. ❤
      Scones are something else here, more like American biscuits. We have scones with jam, (not jelly), and clotted cream. Yummy.
      Hugs Kris ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. My English neighbors made the sweet kind with raisins and some plain and delectable things called cheese straws.
        I’d mail you treats! 😍😍
