Heaps of Halloween candy after tonight? Don’t just throw it in the freezer or stash it on the highest pantry shelf and slowly dole it out. Or (gasp!) throw it in the trash when the kids aren’t looking. Bake with it! We’ve got two different takes on a blondie: one for fruity candy and one for chocolate/caramel candy.
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.
It’s all things strawberry this month, but if you don’t have access to fresh strawberries, don’t fret. Delectable strawberry treats can still be had with these cookies that utilize freeze dried strawberries and strawberry jam.
