These cookies are about as classic as you can get outside of chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Hershey’s kisses sitting atop a soft bed of pillowy peanut butter send so many childhood memories flooding back. They’re delicious both before and after the chocolate has set, and it’s so easy to eat a whole dozen all

If there’s a cookie to bake a double or triple batch of this season, it’s these peppermint mocha cookies. They’re the perfect balance of cocoa, sugar, and mint to make every day seem like a cozy Currier & Ives kind of winter day. They do have a refrigeration period, so unfortunately (or maybe it’s for

I’m not normally a fan of sugar cookies, but I made these by request for a family member, and I found that they really grew on me. The flavor is subtle, and the texture is incredibly delicate. Despite the delicious, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth feel of these cookies, they’re plenty durable and will hold up to clumsy

Christmas cookies are a huge part of this time of year for me. I’ve always been a big baker around the holidays thanks to the influence of my Nana and my mom, but now that I’m on my own, I’ve found more freedom to experiment with different recipes. We always had our staples of anisettes

If you’ve been around Apartment Eats for a little while, you might recall our apple butter post from last year. If you’ve been around even longer than that, you might remember our substitutions post from several years ago. Today, we’re going to put both of those posts to work with these amazing drop cookies.

Cardamom is one of those spices I have in my collection that doesn’t get used a whole lot. It’s very floral, incredibly pungent, and kind of medicinal-tasting if you use too much of it. I’ve made cardamom cookies before, and while I loved them, Hubby wasn’t as much of a fan. They were crumbly and

Sometimes, you need a chocolate hit first thing in the morning, but we all know the guilt that often follows decadent breakfasts. Worry not, I’ve got your back! These brownie waffles are delicious, fudgy, (admittedly kinda dense), and guilt-free! They’re also easy to make and, chances are, you already have most if not all of

I’ve had my sourdough starter for a couple of months now, and I’m looking for a change from our delicious banana bread (mostly because I’m out of bananas this time around, and Hubby wants his morning slice of homemade bread). I’m sure my bread machine is feeling a little left out since we started making

Late one night, Hubby and I decided we wanted peanut butter cookies. I didn’t feel like dealing with refrigeration, shaping, and all that other work that comes with cookies. So I took the lazy route and I made some dough instead. What’s better, I use banana in place of butter (you can sub the same
