Cookies & Bars Recipes

Gingerbread Men

A lovely Christmas time treat.

Cranberry Pecan Bars

These make a lovely snack at the holidays and are one of my favourites. Tart and sweet at the same time.

Christmas Casserole Cookies

A dead easy christmas cookie to make that is a blending of coconut and pecans.


Lovely, crunchy, cinnamon cookies.

Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

Traditional dairy ingredients can be substituted for the dairy-free alternatives listed. I've made these without the chocolate chips and they turn out just fine, too.

Orange Marmalade Cookies

Delicious light and fluffy cookies. A must for any orange marmalade lovers out there!

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Light and crumbly shortbread with mini chocolate chips are fab!

Gobsmackers (aka Mayonnaise Cookies)

Crispy yet moist and tasty, bring these to the office just to see the expressions on their faces after you tell them what's in them, but don't tell until after they've tried them! These are our family's favourite cookie and so easy to make with the kids.
