Bursting with orange flavor and boasting an incredibly chewy and melt-in-your-mouth texture, these orange glazed orange cookies are about to become your new favorite! This post is for my sister, Sarah. Don't worry, the rest of you guys can read along. You see, when Sarah got married a couple of years ago and moved to Israel, I went from seeing her almost daily, to seeing her...once or twice a year. And then she had a baby, but I didn't get to meet my adorable niece until she was about ten months old. It was tough...missing all of her early milestones. Phone calls, photos, even videos - it just isn't the same. It's a big world, and even with technology making it smaller, family … [Read more...]

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies on OvertimeCook

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies are perfect for fall: soft and cake-y cookies with cream cheese filling in the middle! I don't have much to say today. Or maybe I have too much to say?

I love hearing from all of you, seeing pictures of the recipes you're making from this blog, advising you on menu plans, etc. And it leaves me wondering...are you all exhausted too? Do you feel the burnout yet? Or does the thought of having your freezer stocked with all the holiday food you could ever need keep you going?

Flourless Carrot Walnut Cloud Cookies

Flourless Carrot Walnut Cloud Cookies are soft, chewy, spicy and perfect for Passover - or year round! I have to admit, I'm posting all these passover recipes, but in my head...I'm in denial. I don't like cooking for passover. I don't like baking for passover. Pesach desserts are seriously not my thing. I always felt like there are only so many ways you can combine the few basic ingredients to form a new passover dessert. Then I came up with these cookies. Carrot cookies are totally different than the usual pesach treats. The texture is light and airy, the flavor is delightful...These are the cookies that made me rethink my hatred of passover cookies! If you're planning your menu … [Read more...]

Pecan Pie Hamantashen are a perfectly delicious twist on the traditional favorite.  Don't hate me people, but we're kinda going into Purim mode here. I know. I know. I don't want to face it either.
