Minty Mocha Brownie Crunch

Which part of the brownie do you like the best?  Is it the soft middle or the crispy edges?  I love the crispy edges the best.  The harder and the crunchier the better.  I decided to try and make a thin crunchy brownie for St Patrick's Day.

Fill the Cookie Jar with Healthy Pumpkin Unbakes

Fall makes me think of leaves turning colours, cooler weather (although we haven't had too much warm weather here), pumpkins, apples and bunny hugs.   September brings fall and it is also Health awareness month.  So why am I talking about fall and health because it is Fill the Cookie Jar time and I am bringing health and fall together.

Fill the Cookie Jar with Chocolate Almond Shortbread

Diamond, Flowers and Chocolate are the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.  Although I can't give you diamonds.... I will give you some chocolate with maybe a decorated flower or two to fill your cookie jar this Valentine's Day... The catch is that you have to make them yourself but they are worth it if you like a chocolate cookie with a crunch that melt in your mouth.

#Cookies, Cookies and more... Triple Chocolate Chip Biscoff Cookies

We are having a Cookie Party on Foodie Friends Friday starting tonight at 9pm EST.
I hope you will all join us with your favorite cookie recipes.
I can't wait to see what you will bring.

So in honour of this party I decided to make my own cookies.
I was looking for a recipe to make for a bake sale that my hubby had to bring baking for this week and found this wonderful recipe from Isabelle at Home.  I love Isabelle, not only because she is Canadian but she has a wonderful blog and wonderful recipes.  You have to head over there and check them out, her post will make you want to come back for more.
This recipe had biscoff and as we always have biscoff in the house, I knew we would have the ingredients.  My husband goes through a jar a week.  Biscoff and chocolate chips, were could a person go wrong. 
I had sent the couple leftover cookies that I didn't pack for bake sale with my hubby and he sent me and email yesterday saying "So can u make some of the cookies made yesterday again?  They taste very goooooood!!!".  I made a second batch just for him... But remember to check the temperature of the oven.  I thought I had turned it to 375 but it was closer to 400 so a few got burnt.  But the cookies must be gooooood as he is even eating the burnt ones :).
Yesterday afternoon I got another email from hubby that he received from one of the guys at the bakesale ~~" Your cookies were a huge hit- we had a few people come back to buy more after getting one."
These are one good cookie.  Thanks Isabelle for the recipe!

Triple Chocolate Chip Biscoff Cookies


3/4 cup biscoff spread
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cream
1 egg
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup white flour (King Arthur Flour)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla (I used Mimi's Magic Apron Vanilla Extract)**
2 cups chocolate chip or broken baking chocolate ***

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cream biscoff spread, butter, brown sugar, cream,egg and vanilla together.  Add flour, baking soda and salt until just mixed.  Stir in chocolate.  I used my  pampered chef cookie scoop and dropped them on the cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes.  Mine didn't flatten out like Isabelle's did.
*** for the first batch of cookies I use 1 cup milk chocolate Ghirardelli, 1/2 cup semisweet Ghiradelli baking chocolate, broken in pieces and 1/2 cup Ghiradelli white chocolate broken in pieces.  For the second batch I use 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips, 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup white chocolate pieces.
** I won Mimi's Magic Apron Vanilla Extract and love the flavour.  It also makes me believe that my mom is baking right beside me as my mom's name was Mimmie.

I even broke down and had a cookie, although I am not supposed to have one as I am on a no sugar, no grain, no legume program right now.  But they smelt so good I just had to try them.

I used my pampered chef cookie scoop and dropped them on the pan

Enjoy.
