    Crackled Sugar Cookies

    The perfect sugar cookie: a delicious chewy middle, matched with a slightly crunchy edge.

    Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    IMG_0345_thumb2

    Adapted from Epicurious, these recipes are one of my reader’s favorites! They combine savory and sweet flavors together in one delicious treat! I highly recommend these cookies for even the most discerning tastes. They are both sweet and savory while still having the wonderful “goo factor” required for the best chocolate chip cookies, in my humble opinion.

    Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles

    cinco_de_mayo_059 (640x480)
    These vegan cocoa cookies have a kick of cayenne pepper and are finished with a sweet dusting of cinnamon and sugar.  They are crispy and crackley on the outside with soft and chewy centers. If you like spice, you will love this cookie!

    Open to international readers.

    Fudge Meringue Cookies

    IMG_3665_thumb[3]

    Light and gooey fudge meringue cookies! They are amazing.

    Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Apple Brownies

    IMG_7943 (640x470)

    This is not your simple brownie. Sautéed apples and peanut butter bring these brownies to a whole new level. Warning you might eat the entire bunch. *Can be made without the apple.*

    Open to international readers.

    Gluten-Free Vanilla Chocolate Chip Muffins with Cinnamon Sugar Topping

    IMG_6489 (640x480)

    Delicious light vanilla muffin base with chocolate chips.  Topped with cinnamon sugar and baked for a golden sweet crunch.

    Open to international readers.

    Homemade Granola Bars

    IMGP6659 (640x427)

    These homemade granola bars are almond butter-based and are made of good, whole ingredients. They taste decadent, pack a protein punch, and are great for breakfast, snack, or a pre-workout source of fuel. The winner can choose the add-ins: such as dried fruit, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, raisins, etc — up to four! That, or I can choose.

    Spiked Mocha Chip Cookies

    cookies26_thumb

    These cookies are light but chewy and have a strong mocha flavor with a hint of liqueur in the background.

    Chewy Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

    IMG_1634 (480x320)

    Ingredients: Organic butter, organic evaporated cane juice, Baker’s unsweetened chocolate, cage free organic eggs, organic all purpose flour and Reese’s peanut butter chips.

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies

    Cinnamon_Toast_Crunch_Cookies(1) (640x427)

    Although I’ve made a lot of cookies, these are my new favorite! They find that balance between crunchy and chewy and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch inside, along with the butterscotch chips, puts them over the edge. When served with a cold glass of milk it’s like eating milk and cereal and cookies and milk all at once.

    Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles

    truffles

    They are chocolate covered balls of Oreo and peanut butter deliciousness. I can make them regular flavored if the winning bidder doesn’t like peanut butter. They are made with cream cheese so they are not vegan.

    Open to international readers.

    Wren Cake

    IMG_1534

    It is a super moist (it has a box of vanilla pudding in it) yellow cake flavored with Irish Cream liquor.

    Magic Cookie Bars #1

    magiccookie (250x250)

    Crispy Almond Wafer Sandwiches

    One dozen delicate almond wafers filled with sweet buttercream frosting shipped on dry ice for ultimate freshness. Winner can choose up to two of the following flavors: Plain (almond with vanilla buttercream – pictured), Rosemary/Lemon zest with vanilla buttercream, Lavender with vanilla buttercream, Cocoa with orange blossom buttercream, or Mocha with chocolate filling. Made with all natural ingredients. Wheat free. Contains dairy, eggs, and almonds.

    Open to US and Canadian readers.

    Coconut-Oat Macaroons

    macaroons (640x480)

    These cookies retain the lovely flavor and chewy texture of a typical macaroon, but are lower in fat thanks to the addition of rolled oats. Vanilla bean paste contributes the aesthetically appealing black vanilla bean flecks, a touch of almond extract adds depth of flavor, and a bit of salt provides a nice counter balance to the sweet maple syrup.

    Giant Snickerdoodles

    Light and fluffy with a hint of vanilla and lemon.

    Open to international readers.

    Sugar Cookie Bars

    Sugar_Cookie_Bars_022 (640x427)

    Sugar cookies in bar form, simple as that!

    Woohoo, super excited to bake! I have the fudgy meringue cookies up there, and they are fantastic! They look super chocolatey but are actually really light and airy, thanks to the meringue.

    Happy bidding!
