Linseed Cinnamon Cookies

If you never tried a linseed cookie before, you are here for a treat. Linseed or flaxseed cookies are something I never tasted before. Recently, I got this beautiful book, written by Paulina Abascal, a popular pastry chef from Mexico. The recipes in this book are easy to make and the pictures are beautiful and inspiring. Here is where I found the recipe and wanted to try it really bad. Linseeds (or flax seeds) are very high in Omega 3, protein…

The Best Chocolate Chip And Walnuts Cookies

The Best Chocolate Chip And Walnuts Cookies

I am pleased to introduce you to a new chocolate chip cookie recipe. Perfectly soft inside, perfectly crunchy on the outside and perfectly delightful, after you try these cookies once, you will never look for another chocolate chip cookie recipe again. During my chocolate chip cookies research, I found out that the recipes out there aren’t that different at all from each other. A little more flour, a little less brown sugar, semi sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate, these little…

Polvorones Con Limon- Traditional Spanish Christmas Cookies

Polvorones are traditional Spanish crumbly cookies made around Christmas time. You are not going to find them all year around in Spain, unless you buy them from the shops that sell souvenirs for the tourists. Traditionally, these crumbly delicious cookies are made with lard and a combination of almond flour and all purpose flour. Polvorones have usually different flavors like almond, lemon, cocoa, coconut, cinnamon etc. The recipe I am sharing with you today has lemon flavor. When visiting Spain,…

Jam Crescent Pastries(Cornulete cu gem)

I always loved these delicious crescent pastries, popular in many Eastern European countries. I already have on my blog another version of them, made with a different type of dough. There are many recipes out there and I have to say that most of them are great. The dough on the first version of these cookies on my blog  is made with farmer cheese(or ricotta). It is a very old recipe that goes well for a lot of pastries. It uses…

Banana Walnuts Chocolate Chips Soft Cookies

These banana walnuts chocolate chips soft cookies are one of my favorites cookies so far. I am personally not a big fan of crunchy cookies, but I do love the "cakey" or the chewy ones. I also do not like sweets that are very sweet, as I grew up back in Europe with sweets that had more flavor than sugar. If you are with me on this one, and you do not like things very sweet, these are the cookies…

Trail Mix Cookies- Vegetarian, Gluten Free Recipe

Trail Mix Cookies- Vegetarian, Gluten Free Recipe

Who wants cookies? Especially if they are vegetarian and gluten free? Raise your hand! Few days ago, I received some nut butters samples from this wonderful company Once Again Nut Butter. The company makes organic, gluten free certified, non GMO products that are delicious and affordable.  I tried peanut, cashew, sunflower seed and almond butters. All of them are delicious, but sunflower seed butter was my favorite. (Read the review here) The samples came with the cutest raccoon ever, which…

Rum Raisins Cookies Recipe

This recipe of rum and raisins cookies is very close to my heart. While I was growing up, I remember that this recipe was made in every household as a quick sweet snack. My mother used to make the cookies all the time, so they taste like "home" when I make them. The cookies were also available for purchase in every pastry shop or bakery in Bucharest. This cookie is as traditional for Romanians as the chocolate chip cookie is…

Chocolate Cookies with Earl Grey Ganache

If you never tried chocolate and Earl Grey tea together, you missed a lot…I did too, as it was for the first time when I made these Chocolate Cookies with Earl Grey Ganache. Rounds of chocolate sugar cookies are joined together with Earl Grey tea ganache, which adds the citrus taste and perfume of the bergamot orange to the filling. You have to use milk chocolate as bittersweet or dark chocolate would overpower the tea. The cookie dough is formed into…

Coffee Flavored Sugar Cookies

I discovered these coffee flavored sugar cookies during my vacation in Romania last year.  I just loved the cookies. I had no idea these simple sugar cookies flavored with coffee could be that good. I always thought that sugar cookies are pretty boring and I was not quite into them. Since I discovered these cookies, I fell in love with them. If you make this recipe, share it with the hashtag #thebossykitchen on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so we can…

Almond-Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

The cool weather is settling in slowly but surely in Minnesota. So far, we had a long fall, but as we are approaching the holidays, the snow and the wind chill are taking over the Twin Cities.  It feels good to bake when it snows and cookies are always perfect with some hot tea or my favorite Turkish coffee. These shortbread cookies are reminding us of the holidays, with their orange hint from the orange zest and also their chewy and crunchy…
