Spiced Cranberry Orange Cookies

A holiday combination of cranberry and orange in a cookies form spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and a touch a white chocolate.

 Christmas is less than a week away. These cookies are perfect to make.
Normally during the holidays I make at least one recipe that has the great combo of cranberry and orange.
As I was baking them in my oven at my house smelled like heaven with the spices, orange and cranberry.
I make the cookie dough the day before I baked them so the orange zest infused into the cookie dough.

You can say that these cookies will be a hit at any holiday party or dinner because who doesn't like cranberries or orange.

Peppermint Bark Cookies

A Christmas favorite turned into a chewy and gooey chocolate chip cookies with semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and peppermint bark chunks.

Christmas is less than two weeks away. This year has gone by really fast.
Why not make these cookies for a holiday party with all the chocolate and peppermintiness that almost every loves.
My niece and nephews love the little peppermint chocolate disks and the little chocolate mints you get at restaurants so I know they will love them.
The holidays aren't the holidays with out one treat, peppermint bark. It is a super easy to make and only needs three ingredients.
These cookies are so gooey and chewy even after being fully baked and are a really big hit with my family.
I let the cookie dough sit for over a week. The flavor sit and get better the longer you let it 'marinate'.

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls

Mashed sweet potatoes in a slightly spiced dough rolled with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg then covered in a sweet cream cheese icing.

This week sweet potatoes will be made into a casseroles with tons of marshmallows. Never been a fan of that at all. 
Make these cinnamon rolls with sweet potato in the dough. It might be intimidating to make cinnamon rolls at first.
 I felt like that years ago and I finally made them and haven't gone back. They are so easy to make.
Fresh rolls and canned tasty way different. You can make them ahead and freeze them.
I know marshmallows are great but who doesn't like a cinnamon roll with a thick gallop of cream cheese frosting.

Pumpkin Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins

Pumpkin, mini chocolate chips, chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella) and all the warm spices such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and all spice in a muffin.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, exactly two weeks when I publish the post, I will be posting two more recipes that you can make for your family for that day.
These muffins have pumpkin, Nutella and tiny chocolate chips in them, don't have the tiny one that's okay. They are a party in your mouth.
With pop of all the spices, swirl of Nutella and little nuggets of chocolate.
The muffins are super moist, I do not like to hear that word either but that is what they are.
To give the muffins more hazelnut flavor, I used hazelnut flavored coffee cream. Its not a major flavor but just a hint.

Also if you are not a huge fan of the chocolate hazelnut fan you can swirl chocolate spread or mix in a little chocolate in small more batter.

Cookie and Cream Cheesecake

A cookies and cream cheesecake with a Oreo cookies crumble folded into a sweet vanilla bean cheesecake batter with a Oreo crust.
Today is a my birthday! Every year since I'm not much a regular cake eater and cheesecakes from the store just taste manufactored. I make my own cake.
So this year I made myself a Oreo cheesecake since Oreo cookies are one of my favorites.

This is a little different from your typical Oreo cheesecake. I didn't just fold in cookie crumbs. I made a crumble like you would make for a coffee cake.
Instead of getting nothing but dark chocolate cookie in each bite you get pops of it inside the creamy cheesecake filling.
I let the cheesecake sit in my fridge for over 48 hours, it was so hard not to cut into it, but the longer you let a cheesecake sit the better. That's how I feel.
