Happy Galentine’s Day y’all!

I just can’t with the whole fancy, romantic dinner thing for Valentine’s Day. Take me to the mountains, give me tacos, give me margaritas and my heart is yours. But I CAN get excited about celebrating how great all the ladies in my life are. In true Leslie Knope fashion, you can bake all your gals these delicious, chewy, chocolatey brownie cookies. They’ll love you even more when you tell them they are gluten-free and they pair well with a rich malbec, a crisp rosé, a vanilla porter, or even a latte.

Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies 2


  • 3 cups powdered sugar (or 360 g)
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (or 92 g)
  • 4 large egg whites, room temp
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet (2 baking sheets if you have them and want to bake them all at once) with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set it aside.
  2. Whisk together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
  3. Add the egg whites, vanilla and salt and whisk until dough is smooth, shiny and thick (it will be thinner than most cookie dough, much thicker than brownie batter).
  4. Fold in the dark chocolate.
  5. Use a cookie dough scoop to portion out dough and place on prepared baking sheet(s). You should be able to fit 12 per sheet.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Tops should be crackled and shiny. Let cool on baking sheets. Store in airtight container.

Guys, today is very special. I’m finally sharing my secret recipe for sugar cookies. I’ve been making these sugar cookies since I was a little girl. The original recipe came from one of those old church cookbooks – you know, the ones with 5 versions of ambrosia salad. But over the years I’ve modified it to perfection.

Smores Cookies 2

Growing up, s’mores were my favorite part of camping. But we miss out on s’mores often here in Colorado. There are usually fire bans in place during peak camping season to help prevent wildfires. These cookies are a perfect substitute. Continue reading “Cookie Week: S’mores Cookie Recipe”

I’ve moved around a lot in my adult life. Often I realize that at some point, a certain possession I once had has been lost in the shuffle… and I can’t pin point exactly when. But this is not true for the church cookbooks that I grew up with. I have kept a close on eye on these over the years. Continue reading “Pumpkin Bars”
