chewy, spiced browned butter molasses cookies

Here they are…  the chewiest, moistest, yummiest, spiciest, most delicious (I ran out of “est”s), browned butter molasses cookies ever.

I tossed out my Christmas baking list and made two big batches of these in the last two days.  They are that good!

Oh you guys.  I’m sorry this recipe is coming so late today.  I tried so hard to get it done last night, but my computer decided it hated me, right about when I needed it most.

So, it became wine-o’clock and time for netflix until my frustration wore off.  A little wine and a good night’s sleep does wonders for a computer-induced bad attitude!

almost sugar-free, no-bake style cookies (gluten-free)

I have to admit… I really didn’t know what to call these cookies. They remind me so much of no-bake cookies (fudgy, chocolatey, chewy, peanut-buttery, oat-y) but… they are baked!

Unfortunately, calling them ‘Baked Cookies’ just seemed silly.  So, ‘no-bake style cookies’ it is!

Whatever you call them, they are delicious, and almost even healthy!  (I won’t call them healthy, because they are cookies.  BUT, they have hardly any sugar, no gluten, no dairy…  it really doesn’t get much healthier than that for delicious chocolate cookies!)

easy, homemade microwave sweet potato chips

Microwave sweet potato chips?  Really?!

 

That’s exactly what I thought when I first heard of this!  I have been ignoring the concept, until I started intensely craving sweet potato chips today and decided to do something about it.

Usually I make sweet potato fries, in the oven.  They are delicious, but always lack the ‘crunch’ I crave.

I was so skeptical of using the microwave, as I’m not a huge microwave user in general, but the more I thought about it, the more it started to make sense.

Have you ever tried to microwave something soft and moist, like bread, cake or cookies?  And you know how hard and dried out they get if they stay in there even a few seconds too long?

Well, use that drying-out to your advantage for some homemade chips!
