Tiny One Bite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Baker Bettie Cookies, Mini, Sweets 2 Comments

One bite chocolate chip cookies are the most perfect tiny soft chocolate chip cookie for eating by the handful or drenching in milk and eating with a spoon, kind of like homemade cookie cereal!  I have a real problem right now. I CANNOT be in Target without gravitating toward the baby section. And I CANNOT look through the baby section of Target without inevitably buying several baby items. Have you looked at baby clothes lately?! THEY ARE TOO CUTE! Before you get all freaked, I’m not pregnant! But my sister is! And I am so darn excited to meet the …

This Salted Caramel Skillet Cookie is so incredibly easy to make and nobody will ever know it is grain free, vegan, and refined sugar free! The salted caramel sauce serves a dual purpose of the base for the cookie and also a decadent sauce to drizzle over the top!  I originally published this recipe as a guest post for the blog Fork & Beans in July 2012.  You may or may not know that in my real world job I am a private chef for someone with a very long list of food allergies. It is a fun challenge, to say …

Bourbon and Thyme Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Baker Bettie Cookies, Frozen, Sweets 2 Comments

Bourbon and thyme oatmeal raisin cookies are packed with brown butter, old fashioned rolled oats, and raisins soaked in bourbon. These cookies take the classic to a whole new level. Smash some good quality vanilla bean ice cream between two of them for a truly gourmet treat.  This recipe was originally published in the July 2014 Edition of VRAI Magazine.  In January of 2010 I was all moved out of my college apartment and on the road, making the long drive from Lawrence, KS to Austin, TX. I had taken an internship at the state hospital in Austin in order …

Basic Shortbread Cookies

Baker Bettie Basic Recipes, Cookies, Holidays, Sweets, Valentine's Day 3 Comments

Basic shorbread cookies are one of the easiest cookies you can make! This old-fashioned recipe only calls for 5 ingredients and results in deliciously buttery and slightly sweet cookies! This dough can also be used as a tart crust or the base of a cheesecake!  Is it weird that shortbread cookies are my favorite kind of cookie? Of all the cookies in all the world, I  have yet to find a cookie that I enjoy more than good basic shortbread cookies. They are just so buttery and crumbly with just the right amount of sweetness. Just perfect. I made these …

Cookie Dough Cookies

Baker Bettie Cookies, Sweets 5 Comments

Cookie dough cookies are the dream cookie! Baked cookie on the outside and cookie dough in the center!  I have this same dilemma every time I make cookie dough for cookies. I get to the point where I’m ready to bake the cookies and I just about can’t put the pan in the oven. I go back and forth with myself. I taste the raw dough and think, “These cookies are never going to be as good as this dough!” They rarely are. What is it about raw dough that just always tastes so much better than it’s baked version of itself?! …

Homemade Oreos with Raspberry Filling

Baker Bettie Cookies, Mini, Sweets, Valentine's Day 3 Comments

I have figured out the texture of an oreo for a homemade version! A rich chocolate crunchy and crumbly cookie with a creamy but stiff filling! These are so much better than the store bought version. Keep them plain, or add freeze dried raspberry powder to give them a pretty pink color and to add tartness to the filling! Happy Valentine’s Day!  You guys! I have been the worst blogger ever! It has been almost two weeks since I’ve posted a brand new recipe and I’ve had this one photographed for over a week and just haven’t been able to …
