Ah, yes, my favorite time of year is right around the corner. If you loooooove Halloween, stop reading now because this is about to get personal. (But really, please don’t stop reading). Me and Halloween have a long sordid history. In the four years of blogging, I have told you tales of silly string and shaving cream attacks, sleepover scavenger hunt drama, costume issues, and passing on said costume identity issues to my poor child.

Whenever I bake cookies at home, I always sing the song, “It’s Cookie Time” from Troop Beverly Hills. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is right up there with Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead and High Fidelity. Yeah, I know, I like good and varied movies.
The first time I saw Troop Beverly Hills I was at a sleepover birthday party. We literally all stood up on top of our sleeping bags and did the Freddy along with Shelley Long. Then we went back to snuggling with our plush Troll babies with the little poof of hair and Puffalumps. BTW we were all maybe 12 years old. [Read more…]
I have been trying my best to not overwhelm you with cookie and sweets recipes this month. I think I have been doing pretty well.

It’s no secret I run a food blog and take care of Andy for a living. In order to have both of these jobs working cohesively, I have to do a bit of juggling. This means cooking while Andy is napping, corralled in the highchair, or under the care and supervision of another person.
The day when I was feeling a bit brave and Andy was feeling a bit clingy was when I decided to try and prep, bake, and photograph these cookies. I knew it would be crazy and probably take twice as long to bake, but I went for it anyway. With the holidays around the corner, I wanted to get as many recipes done in advance so I could actually spend time away from the kitchen when Mike is off from work and we have a bit of family time.
Confession: The story I am about to tell is 100% true. I seriously cannot make this stuff up! The story I am about to tell has nothing to do with these cookies. These cookies are soft like a muffin top (which I am trying to get rid of hahah) and covered in a lemony glaze. They are awesome. You should make them before you read this tale of mine because, once it is over, you are going to be laughing your butts off and forget all about them… Well, maybe I will remind you about the cookies again at the end.
