Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Hey there, friends! Long time, no see, eh?

My apologies for our sporadic schedule lately- My original plan was to get ahead on blog posts before the pre-finals work hit me, but then… well, it hit me. Then I got to settle down and enjoy the holiday break with my Nana! It was just the two of us this year- well, us and her dog. What can I say? My family’s tiny and very spread out along the East Coast. No complaints here, though! We had a very fun time doing what we do best: Eating and sleeping 😉

Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies

Is anyone else obsessed with Nutella? It’s the only food my best friend and I regularly argue over. She hates it, but I can’t get enough. There’s something to be said about a chocolate-y, hazelnut-y spread that passes for breakfast!

If you love Nutella as much as I do, you have to try this recipe. I promise, it’ll make all of your Nutella-Cookie dreams come true. Aaaaand it comes together in 20 minutes. Just sayin’ 😉 The quicker I can get these in my mouth, the better.

Best Ever Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cinnamon-y, toffee-y, and absolutely delicious!

Raise your hand if you LOVE oatmeal cookies. No? Just me? Well, I promise, these cookies will change your mind in an instant.

How about this:  Raise your hand if you’ve ever been tricked by a raisin, thinking it was a chocolate chip. Has there ever been a betrayal worse than that of a raisin posing at a chocolate chip? I think not.

Frosted Chai Spice Snickerdoodles

It’s finally feeling like fall here, and that calls for celebration! In cookie form, of course. That’s what this blog is all about.

Is anyone else obsessed with chai tea? I am. I have a dwindling stash of chai Keurig cups, but I adore Starbucks or Port City Java’s chai tea. I’m a chai fanatic.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls

Hey, all! Long time, no see!

I missed you guys on Friday! Unfortunately, last week I was swamped with work and couldn’t get a recipe out on time, and I didn’t want to post anything that I wasn’t 100% sure would taste as delicious to you as it is to me. Quantity over quality, after all.

Edible Cookie Dough for Two

Sometimes it’s better than actual cookies.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever snuck a bite (or two) of cookie dough when no one was looking.

If your hand isn’t raised, you’re either lying, or lying. Let’s face it, we all know how bad cookie dough is for us, but it’s just so freaking good, we can’t resist! I certainly can’t (it’s truly amazing how I survived to adulthood), and that’s why we’re lucky recipes like this exist. What a time to be alive!

Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Cookies

Sweet dreams are made of these (Who am I to disagree?)

Some food combos are obvious. Chocolate and peanut butter, mac & cheese, and bacon and pretty much anything. Some combos are surprising. Fries and milkshakes, oreos and peanut butter, and pineapples and teriyaki chicken.

And some combos are so simple, yet so amazingly brilliant that you can’t wait to eat them all as soon as you stop asking yourself “Why didn’t I think of this before?!”

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I run a food blog. Crazy, right?

In case you weren’t aware, the title of my food blog is Cookies and Caitlyn. Why? Because I love cookies more than life itself. The recipe that started me on this baking journey over five years ago was a chocolate chip cookie recipe. More on that later… Continue reading “Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies”
