I adapted the recipe a bit and came up with Tangerine Walnut Biscotti. You can find the recipe below. I changed the obvious of the tangerine and the walnut, but I also used whole wheat flour and the crunchy big demerara sugar!

  1. I am entering your giveaway.
    It would be great to win a Country Crock cookie package.
    My favorite cookies are Peanut Butter.
    Thank you for having this giveaway!!!!!!!!

  2. I love frosted sugar cookies. Thankfully, I only make them a few times per year. Otherwise, they would be part of my regular food pyramid!

  3. Breakfast Takealongs, a recipe from an old Quaker Oats booklet. They are made with bacon, cheese, wheat germ, raisins and nuts (optional) – great for brunch or road trips!

  4. Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site
    mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Thank you!

  5. My favorite cookie is Emmy, s Dump Cookie. It is my friend Emmy, s.

    Start with a basic oatmeal cookie recipe. Then and all different kinds of chips and nuts.

  6. For Christmas I always make 12 kinds, the consistent ones are: 7 Layer Rainbow Cookies, Rugelach, Gingerbread, Chocolate Chip, Cran-Orange, Triple Chocolate, and Chocolate Mint. The other 5 vary year to year with changing interest and time.

  7. My favorite cookie recipe is good ole fashion chocolate chip cookies:

    ½ lb unsalted butter (2 sticks)
    ¾ cups granulated sugar
    ¾ cups brown sugar, packed
    2 eggs
