20 minute Madeleine Cookies  

These classic French cookies are really easy to make, and the taste is amazing!  You can experience with this recipe by adding your favorite flavors, nuts, spices or extracts.

Sweet Winter Trees

Fun and a great alternative to the regular rice crispy treats. Sweet winter trees are great for parties and family get-togethers. The winter tree shapes with “snow” will put you into the holiday winter wonderland dream.

Cheese Cookies

They are simple to make and are super soft. You can use farmers cheese for this recipe, but sometimes farmers cheese is very hard to find so ricotta cheese will work great! The dough itself doesn’t have any sugar in it so the sprinkled sugar makes a bit sweeter.

Pizzelle Waffle Cones This recipe doesn’t require many ingredients, and doesn’t take a lot of your time. It’s a nice sweet dessert, with a waffle cone filled with cream.
