• “Cookie Dough”

    Okay… who is with me on the hunger… all… day… long? I mean it must be boredom? Stress? Right? Any which way… I keep eating chocolate chips… by the handful. But what I really wanted was cookie dough. And perhaps it would be nice if it had some redeeming qualities like healthy fats… I knew I could cobble together some kind of grain free treat with the remainder of my bag of almond flour… this frozen “cookie dough” hits the spot! Make them small so it’s just enough sweet, and don’t skip the extra tablespoon of coconut sugar at the end, it gives it that small crunch that real cookie…

  • Best Ever Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

    I finally mastered the perfect dark chocolate buttercream frosting! Not too sweet (yes, that is a thing), perfectly chocolaty and smooth! Super simple and very easy. This batch will frost a two layer 9 inch cake or 24 cupcakes with a little leftover… and you know what? You can freeze buttercream frosting! Seriously! Pop that bit of leftover frosting in the freezer for when you have a frosting emergency… that exists right?           Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • Cashew Butter Cookies (Paleo!)

    Remember those seriously easy peanut butter cookies that only had three ingredients? Well why can’t they be cashew butter? And while we are at it let’s make them paleo with coconut sugar instead!     I started with Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for Salted Peanut Butter Cookies and made some simple swaps. Super easy, low maintenance recipe,  but I recommend using a mixer because nut butter can be hard to stir!           Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • Graham Toffee Candy

    Graham crackers smothered in vanilla toffee & dark chocolate with a sprinkle of pecans… I really struggled to name this recipe… it is not a cookie. Is it bark? Is it candy? Is it the so called “Christmas Crack”? Let’s not limit this to Christmas because it could (and should) be made all year round… so let’s call it Graham Toffee Candy! I was playing around with the “Christmas Crack” that is all over Pinterest and thought “This would taste so much better with graham crackers… and maybe pecans”.  I was right! The candy here is a ridiculously easy vanilla toffee that is divine! You could swap in butterscotch chips…

  • Coconut Macaroons

    Coconut Macaroons. I think I first started making these for my in-laws for Passover early in our marriage. The first time I brought them my husband’s grandparents jubilantly stated that these were the best macaroons they had ever had. Ever. Coconut macaroons were their favorite cookie so they knew what they were talking about. Now I make them for the family for any holiday. They are so simple with only 5 ingredients and come together quickly.   I also think they make the perfect holiday “snowball” cookie and they make their way on to our Christmas Cookie plate. (Try our Gluten Free Roll Out Sugar Cookie for you Christmas Cookie…
