BUNNY COOKIES/ Chocolate Bunnies



Who likes Chocolate?   Me ... Me ! No little boy or girl can resist chocolate especially at Easter. I think it’s one of the best things ever, don’t you? The chocolate bunny was my favorite and I saved it for last. Here’s my version in cookie form. It’s a perfect addition to the kids’ Easter baskets along with their chocolate eggs and jelly beans. I hope the Easter bunny brings you all sweet things!

BUNNY COOKIES/ Sugar Bunnies



Peeps….move over! These Sugar Bunnies are hopping down the bunny trail. You know the popular, pastel-colored, marshmallow, sugar goodies that fly off the grocery store shelves this time of year? Peeps take me back to Mrs. Maloney’s second grade classroom, about the time I first tasted one of those gooey delights. Peeps signified Easter, spring, tulips and daffodils in bloom. No more wool coats, mittens and stocking caps, instead jumping rope at recess, riding bicycles after school, and playing baseball with the neighborhood kids. It also meant the May pageant, church carnival, end of the school year and summer were soon to follow.

My version of peeps had to be bunnies. At Easter when I was age 11, my older brother returned home from college with a fluffy, white bunny with black eyes and nose, and gray ears and tail. At Easter, my classmates would get cute little chicks or bright yellow ducks with orange-webbed feet. Unlike my friends whose chicks and ducks would mysteriously disappear a week after Easter, we kept our bunny as a pet. So, in remembrance of Easy I whipped up these adorable bunny cookies. Look and see how simple these are to make. Now, tell me about your Peeps memories?

BIRTHDAY CAKE COOKIES/ Legal

Age 21 . . . yippee!

These cookies were made for my nephew’s 21st birthday. He is a college junior and a fantastic guy. [Check out his sports blog here.] As with all my nephews he is very special, brings me great joy and I'm very proud to be his aunt. Many wonderful experiences lie ahead in the years to come, but for this milestone I made cookies with whimsical polka dots to remind him to never lose his inner little boy.

“The great man is he who does not lose his child's heart.

In this season when everyone is Irish, my wish for each of you can be found in this Irish Blessing.


May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.

A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES/ Irish Twist



Usually, I’m a purest when it comes to the traditional chocolate chip cookie; no white chocolate, no milk chocolate, no butterscotch chips, only semi-sweet chocolate chips and definitely no nuts. But in March everything has a touch of green, so I strayed and added some Irish to America’s favorite cookie for St. Patrick’s Day. These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies add color along with a burst of mint in each bite. The batter tastes great too! So get in the spirit of the season where everyone is Irish and bake a batch for your St. Pat’s Day celebration!


Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
2¼ cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
½ cup Butter, softened
½ cup Crisco Shortening
¾ cup Sugar
¾ cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1¼ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
¾ cup Mint Chips

In a separate bowl mix Flour, Baking Soda and Salt. Set aside.
Cream Butter, Shortening, Sugar, Brown Sugar and Vanilla.
Add Eggs one at a time. Gradually add flour mixture.

Stir in Chocolate Chips and Mint Chips.
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from oven when slightly golden on edges. Cookies will look underdone. Makes 5 dozen.
