As we’re moving in to cooler weather it seems to be time to put the popsicles and ice cream aside—ok, maybe not too far though—and make room for some warm baked bars and cookies! And while you don’t want to be making/eating endless amounts of cookies (ok, you do, but probably shouldn’t), I like this line of thought—if you only have sweet treats as often as you can make them at home, you probably won’t overdo it. Not many of us make a fresh batch of cookies every day! Homemade is definitely best—you control the ingredients and skip all of the yucky shelf stable chemicals! Here are a few that David and I love to make! (click on pictures to go to the recipes.).

Also, remember to get your free downloadable kitchen art print from Fried Dandelions’ birthday! This download will be free through Monday, 9/30 and then it will be found in my Etsy shop.
^^^ Salted Sesame Cookies with Chocolate Chips—these are some of my favorites—the salty bite makes them a perfect treat for adults, and the chocolate chips keep them kid friendly too!
^^^ Homemade Graham Crackers—a kid favorite!
^^^ Chloe Coscarelli’s Ginger Molasses Cookies—delicious, and easy to make too!
^^^ These Peanut Butter Oat Bars have a fig jam filling with a hidden veggie inside, but you’d never know! Delicious and healthy!
^^^ Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies—made fun with the addition of brightly colored sprinkles!
^^^ Spice Cookies—these are my very favorite cookies in the entire world. My mom used to send me a box of them every Valentine’s day when I was in college. But they are equally delicious any day of the year. I dare you to eat just one!
^^^ And who can eat all of these cookies without some milk? Try my Mexican Chocolate milk!
Which cookies will you be making this weekend? I’m torn between the Salted Sesame Chocolate Chips and the Chewy Ginger Molasses cookies! Tough decisions.
I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment on my facebook wall or send me an email at email@example.com.
