So normally each year I make a huge batch of iced sugar cookies, but this year I’m not sure if I’m going to get around to making any! They are sooo time consuming and although they are delicious I might focus my efforts on slightly easier to whip out cookies, seeing as I have an almost 6 months baby. 🙂 So far I have made chocolate chip walnut, ginger, and cinnamon coffee cookies! They all turned out soo yummy and I might need to make some more before Christmas gets here! Check below the photos for the recipes, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Linked here -> Chocolate chip walnut cookies the only thing I do different is I make them smaller, about the size of a golfball and add walnuts, and seasalt sprinkled on top before I bake( I also normally bake only 12 minutes to get that nice undercooked cookie)
The second two recipes I got out of this awesome magazine! There are so many more great recipes it is well worth purchasing your own copy!
Ginger cookies, I made the mini ones 🙂
Cinnamon coffee cookies- seriously amazing! Think coffee flavored snicker-doodle 🙂
Happy Monday, ciao bellas!
Most days I allot myself a little time to sit down and blog, read a book, or maybe edit photos. During this time I like to prepare myself a coffee (generally iced) and a couple small cookies. I love making my own stuff but I have opted for buying a premade ice coffee, since my time while baby is napping can be short, so I just want to pour and drink! 🙂 Pictured below is my favorite premade iced coffee and I like the unsweetened kind and add my own sugar and cream to taste.
My favorite cookies at the moment are little ginger snaps I bought at Ikea, and I am almost out!! (excuse to go to ikea? 😉 ) I also love the Milano milk chocolate cookies, and I like to bake cookies, but I don’t do that all the time because I will eat them allll day long if I make fresh cookies!
..Speaking of fresh cookies I actually do need to make some dough this week because Saturday I am getting together with my friend and fellow blogger Katie to have a little cookie baking “party”. We are both going to pre-make a couple different cookie doughs we want to try and than get together and bake them and ice them if needed! I’m hoping to make enough so that I can bag some up as little presents to give to neighbors and friends! Wishing you all a happy Wednesday, ciao bellas!
It was rainy and dreary today and I was supposed to walk with a friend but due to weather she invited me over for hot coffee and muffins instead. My friend lives right down the street so I bundled up in a cozy sweater got Kai ready and packed him into his sling, grabbed an umbrella, and headed out the door! As soon as I got outside and I saw how beautiful our Japanese maple looked with its red leaves, some on the tree some on the ground, I knew I needed to snap a couple of photos with it!
Once I got there she told me to get some coffee from the pot… But did I listen, nope I picked up the French press and poured the little bit of coffee from it into my cup, added some sugar and cream, and took a big swallow….. Ice cold coffee hit my mouth, haha! Turns out I grabbed the day old stuff instead of the fresh pot of coffee, oops( day old cold coffee does not taste good)! I quickly got some fresh coffee and a hot muffin and everything was better. We had a lovely visit chatting out about life, babies, and babies 😉 ! Life is good, I hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday, ciao bellas!
I forgot to post this yesterday, but I wanted to share a photo we took last year to announce our pregnancy and the photo we took this year!
