We’ve been periodically sharing family recipes from home bakers on the blog. This delightful cookie comes from Joy Zbinden and is her grandma’s recipe; her dad was partial to them being made with raisins. We hope you enjoy them just as much as we did. We all know that family recipes are the best, because they have that additional unspoken ingredient: love.
We are reviving an old bonus recipe to become a permanent blog post, because we figured everyone needs more cookies in their lives. We show you how to take a basic cookie recipe and swap out different flours and sugars as well as add-ins like baking chips, dried fruit, nuts, flavoring extracts, etc.
This month has been about easy recipes to feed the family as you head back to school, or back to online learning, or back to still working at home, or maybe even going back to work. Whatever it may be, quick, easy, or make ahead is key as most of us have been stuck at home a lot, cooking way more than usual. And while you may roll your eyes at homemade pizza as easy; using make ahead flatbread dough, a convenient sheet pan shape for everyone to have their own personal portion, and store-bought toppings means that pizza night can indeed be relatively easy.
