Almond Butter Cookies

These Almond Butter Cookies remind me of both shortbread and sugar cookies. They’re rich and buttery like shortbread. They also have a nice sweetness, a chewy center, and crispy edges like some sugar cookies I’ve had. Since they have almonds and almond butter in them, that makes them healthy too, right? 🙂

Frosted Yogurt Sugar Cookie Bars

Butterscotch Cashew Blondies

Here’s a yummy blondie recipe for all of you butterscotch and cashew fans! These blondies are thick and chewy, with lots of buttery, butterscotch flavor! Very rich.

Peanut-Caramel Crispy Treats

I’m a fan of crispy treats and I like to experiment making them with different add-ins. I love the sweet-and-salty combination of peanuts and caramel, so I made these Peanut-Caramel Crispy Treats, and they are so good! They’re made with salted peanuts and a bag of Kraft® Caramel Bits, so you don’t need to unwrap any caramels, which saves some time!
