pecan-butter-cookies-creativecookieexchange

And we are back, yes we are and this time we have the most delicious and sweet cookies inspired by all things Autumn. Yes, the flavors and smells of the most amazing season of the year.

For you today I made a different and easier way to make your cookies fo this season. Perfectly bake and flavor with warm cinnamon and crunchy pecans. These cookies are the best options when you need to make a bunch for a party or a gathering with friends.

I bake the hold batch of cookies on a single cookie sheet, to make it easier and fast for me and for you, I was actually in a little hurry and I need to experiment a little with my cookies, you know sometimes you have to. But the end result is very delicious, just keep in mind that you must cut the cookies when hot, otherwise, it can be too difficult.

Gimme Jimmy’s Cookies #Freshness #Review

Thanks to Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies for providing me with a tin of cookies for my review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Gimme Jimmy's Cookies #Freshness #Review

I got a delicious tin of Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies and let me tell you, this is one of the best cookies I have tried. The challenge for us, taste the freshness each day. So we need it to eat one each day to see how everything was going, my job is so hard :).

On day one, I just could not resist eating about 3 with my cup of coffee and my girls definitely enjoy them too. The only downfall I have is that some of the cookies were broken, but either way, we eat them all.

GJCookies #review

By day 4 the cookies were still fresh and delicious, one key element is to keep the cookies in the original tin, this will keep them with zero expose to any element that can make them soft.

By day 7 most of the cookies were gone, but the freshness was still there, I kept some for more time and let me tell you, the cookies were delicious, fresh and full of flavors.

#GJCookies #review

I really want to encore you to buy and try Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies. Check out their website for more information and here are their social channels.

Mini Sandwich Cookies with Hazelnut Buttercream #mixinmoments #ad #CollectiveBias

Do you love easy to make and ready to use baking mixes? I do too and on this occasion, I want to share with you a wonderful product that is not only super easy to use but also perfect when you are creating a delicious dessert with the kids.

Okay, let me give you more info, Nestle Toll House is launching a new product line and this will make your life super easy when it comes to baking. This line of baking mixes is perfect for easy and fast dessert and at the same time you can get super creative while making it.

#mixinmoments presentation

For example, my girls love to bake with me and I always try to have on hand easy shortcuts for them to help them to make the perfect dessert. The baking mixes are perfect because they can make different flavors and at the same time created a completely different dessert out of them.

And we love to make so many different things, like these sandwich cookies, my inspiration for this recipe is simple, my little one, she is 7 and love cookies so much, and I always have some for her to eat after dinner, but I want it to make something different, and because my freezer is full I just want it to recreate the classic sandwich cookies. The firts thing on the list is go to Walmart and buy as many as we can of the baking mixes, we want it to stock up our pantry with all the mixes to make as many combinations as we can, and that way invite some friends to try our cookies.

#mixinmoments baking mixes

Ok, for the cookies I use my new favorite NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Cookies & More Cookie Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, oh my, they are so soft, deliciously sweet, and so much chocolate flavor in every bite, and to complement these cookies a soft and perfect hazelnut buttercream, so creamy and I’m sure you will love this combination as much as we do.

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

This month we want to inspire you with some spring flavors. Ok, let me be honest, here in San Diego, doesn’t look like spring, is gloomy and cold, but what I do when the weather is a little different is too simple, I bake cookies, and lucky for me this month the #CreativeCookieExchange theme is all about spring.

I love how the smell and flavors bring the best of the season and how incredible delicious everything tastes. It is just perfect in so many ways. My favorite flavors in spring are a lemon, and orange, so fresh and so bright, you can make anything with this two flavors and it will taste just perfect.

And you can’t believe what happened to me today I totally forgot that the cookies were baking and Oh No! a hold batch of cookies is burn, but luckily for me, I save the rest from disaster. The bad news is that I can’t send cookies to my friends.
