Chocolate Teaser Cookies

How stinking cute are these pinwheel cookies? I know pinwheel cookies aren’t new, but you won’t believe how not-new they really are. I found this recipe while trolling through a 1980s edition of Southern Living cookbook! And Pinterest thought it had found something innovative. Advertisements

Heath Bits Toffee Cookies

Is there anything more decadent than a chunk of Heath toffee? Yes, there is! These cookies! I absolutely love toffee. The caramelized flavor of molasses always puts me in the mood for fall. Since fall is just around the corner, I figured it was time to whip up a batch of my toffee cookies.

Graveyard Dirt Cookies with Peanut Butter

#faustbakes #halloween #cookies

Cookies have never been my specialty. I have very few recipes for cookies, and the ones I do have are strict classics–chocolate chip, oatmeal, shortbread. My sister is a fantastic cookie maker, so I’ve never needed to be good. These babies, though! I am so proud of these little clumps of dark chocolate dirt. These… Continue reading →

Titanic Sugar Cookies

Titanic sugar cookies! #faustbakes

What none of you Internet friends of mine know that my real world friends know too well is that I am obsessed with sunken ships. Especially Titanic. I’ve seen every film adaptation of its sinking (even the dreaded “Titanic II”), and don’t even get me started on how many times I’ve seen the James Cameron adaptation! I… Continue reading →

Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies with Jam

Just as a warning, these cookies are unbelievably addicting. They have a soft, buttery crumb that melts in your mouth. And that sweet, fruity center! The combination is a perfectly tart cookie that I dare you to eat just one of.

Granbaum Sugar Cookies

I’m not sure if “Granbaum” is the actual name of these cookies (and after several Google searches, I think not), but they taste so good, I don’t think it really matters. Granbaum sugar cookies are a soft, almost chewy, subtly sweet cookie that really shines with a big dollop of buttercream. They’re a holiday staple… Continue reading →

Cookie Soldiers and Candy Dippy Egg

Happy day after Easter, everybody! You know what I love more than holiday candy? Holiday candy on sale. The day after a holiday is the best day for hitting up those candy aisles, filling your cart to the brim, and inducing a sugar coma for less than $10. It’s awesome. Easter candy is a little… Continue reading →

Sugar Cookie Layer Cake & Edible Cookie Dough

It’s birthday season in the Faust house, which means I’ve been busy in the kitchen! I love this time of year, when all the birthdays in the family clump around the same months. I think I’m at my most creative about now. There’s nothing more depressing than having the same dessert, night after night, and… Continue reading →

Galentine’s Day Waffle Fries Bar

It’s February, and while for most that means Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, for me it means Galentine’s Day is coming! Galentine’s Day is a celebration on February 13 where girls get together and wallow in their love for one another. I heard about it for the first time on “Parks and Recreation” and… Continue reading →
