Today I’m sharing another Rerun with you, in cookie form. The Benne Wafer Cookies Recipe that I posted way back in 2010 is an oldie but a goodie. A real sweet goodie. Benne Wafers are a traditional southern cookie made with toasted sesame seeds, otherwise known as benne. These cookies are nutty and sweet and oh so perfect! Try to eat just one. It’s not an easy thing.

This Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Recipe has been dancing around in my head for a while now after enjoying a delectable strawberry cake last spring at a local cafe. This one, made with a fresh strawberry puree mixed into the batter, just beckoned to be covered with a Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
Once again the holidays flew by without getting around to everything on my baking list. So, over the past couple of weeks, the baking bug has hit and I’ve done a little catching up on making a few old favorites as well as trying some new treats too. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are certainly an old favorite. I know I’m not alone when I say that. Chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that’s hard to beat, don’t you think?
The nice folks from Pillsbury invited me, along with several bloggers, to create some great new cookie recipes for the holidays. I took the opportunity to enlist our teenage daughter to help create these Marshmallow Creme Filled Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies. They were easy and fun. Although they may look at little complicated, they’re quite simple. Really! The most difficult (if you can call it difficult) thing is planning extra time for chilling in between steps.
