For my choir’s winter concert, we had to bring baked goods for our audience to enjoy during intermission and after the concert. Each of us was tasked with bringing a dozen cookies. For those who didn’t have time to make something to bring and didn’t want to just go out and buy something from the

Today’s cookies are a trial for a classic Italian cookie cake that I will be making later this month for our choir’s Christmas concert.

That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE!

She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods).

Now, it’s time to go way back to a celebration that may seem familiar in some ways, though it is often forgotten as a niche practice in the shadow of the flashier, more popular holidays.
