Chewy Oatmeal Scotchies

Baker Bettie Cookies, Holidays 7 Comments

Thick and chewy Oatmeal Scotchies are one of my favorite kinds of cookie! This is my recipe for the best oatmeal scotchies and they turn out just slightly crispy on the outside and really chewy and gooey in the middle. Use dark brown sugar for the most chew! Are you getting sick of cookies yet? I know the internet is flooded with them these days. Cookie recipes coming out from everywhere! I didn’t plan this well. I should have given these to you earlier and kept some other holiday recipes for later but, you know, you live and you learn. …

Ultra Soft Sugar Cookie Bars

Baker Bettie Bars, Cookies, Mini, Sweets 9 Comments

This is my definition of a perfect sugar cookie. Soft sugar cookie bars are incredibly fudgy, soft, and almost cookie dough like. Making sugar cookies in bar form keeps the edges soft and makes the perfect thick cookie to sink your teeth into.  I always get a craving for sugar cookies this time of year. But not just any sugar cookies. I want cookies that are indescribably soft and almost fudge-like. Cookies that border on tasting like cookie dough. I think I’ve actually only had those kinds of cookies a few times in my life. I’ve tried a lot of recipes …

Salted Caramel Pecan Diamonds

Baker Bettie Bars, Christmas, Cookies, Fall, Holidays, Sweets, Thanksgiving 9 Comments

My take on a pecan diamond is a salted caramel pecan shortbread! These cookies would work very well for holiday sharing as it makes a large amount of diamonds and they are incredibly delicious and hard to stop eating! The buttery flavor and crumbly texture of the cookie base contrasts so well with the salted caramel and toasted pecan topping!  A few years ago at Christmas my sister’s mother-in-law gave my family a tin of Pecan Diamonds. Essentially they are shortbread on the bottom and a layer of caramel and pecans on top. That little tin sat out in the …

Baker Bettie Cookies, Sweets 1 Comment

Thick and chewy cranberry white chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and orange zest. The cookies get slightly crisp on the outside & stay super soft and chewy on the inside.  I have a difficult time meeting new people. I’m not sure when that started because I don’t remember being a shy kid. Maybe I was. Possibly I was just less self aware than I am now. But sometime in my young adult years I started getting overwhelmed with the idea of new people and new places. The thought of going to party and not knowing the majority of people that …

Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies with Butterscotch Chip

Baker Bettie Cookies, Halloween, Holidays, Sweets 10 Comments

Intensely dark chocolate butterscotch cookies with espresso are chewy and soft and the perfect mid afternoon pick-me-up. Hershey’s dark chocolate cocoa powder gives these their intense dark chocolate flavor, however dutch processed cocoa powder could be used in its place. I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I’m sorry I’ve been holding out on you. When I had my cookie business, you know that one where I baked 6,000 cookies one Christmas, this was one of my flavors. I called them “The Pick-Me-Up”. They are ultra chocolatey and pack a good punch of espresso. And oh those …

Find out what the secret ingredient is in these perfectly thick and soft peanut butter m&m cookies! The texture of these cookies is incredible!  I have been hearing about people putting cornstarch in their cookies for some time now.

So I finally decided to give it a go, and of course, it does work! Surprisingly well. These  cookies turned out to be some of the softest, most dense and fudgy cookies I …
