6 Years of Cookies and Bars

Cookies have been my favorite dessert recently. Well, other than ice cream… But I’ve definitely been on a huge cookie-kick. Here are some of my favorite cookie or bar recipes from the last six years.

1st year – Back in the early days of my blog, I was making a ton of cupcakes, and not many cookies. These Cinnamon Cookies were a huge hit when I took them to work. I also crumbled them up in some warm chunky applesauce, topped with some vanilla ice cream for a fake apple pie a-la mode. cinnamon-cookies

2nd year – Everyone has seen or made these Sugar Cookie Bars. I’ve made them quite a few times because everyone loves them and they’re so easy to make. Add some festive frosting and sprinkles, and you’re good to go for about any occasion. sugar-cookie-bars

3rd year – These Cookie Dough Brownies are a recipe I’ve made time and time again. They’re just so good. There’s almost more cookie dough frosting than brownie. Which is a good thing in my book. I recently brought these to work for a birthday celebration and people were wow-wed. cookie-dough-brownies

4th year – Of course, as a baking blogger, I had to make some French Macarons. For these chocolate ones with espresso frosting, I paired up with a baking buddy and we used Joanne Chang’s recipe. They weren’t as difficult as I had thought they were going to be and seeing these pics reminds me that I should make some more again soon. chocolate-macarons-with-espresso-buttercream

5th year – These Hot Chocolate Cookies were a pleasant surprise. I was expecting to just like them, but I absolutely loved them. I couldn’t get enough and have given them as gifts and donated them in online bake sales as well. hot-chocolate-cookies

6th year – I took my go-to chocolate chip recipe and funfetti-ized them to make these Funfettir Chocolate Chip Cookies. Another huge hit, which is no surprise given the recipe and the fact that sprinkles make everything better.

      Yep, those were the other ones I made in the last year! Every time I make cupcakes, I’m reminded how great they are, they just don’t excite me like they used to so I don’t think to make them. It could have something to do with my obsession with ice cream this summer though…
