Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

Nothing beats a simple, chocolate chip cookie. This is a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe that you can easily add to – this time, I added some chopped walnut pieces for some extra crunch and protein!

Ingredients

½ cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnut pieces

chocolate chip cookies with walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cream butter and sugars in a stand mixer until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add egg, then vanilla. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt then chocolate chips and walnuts, mixing until combined.

Roll into balls or scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheet and press dough down to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes (for softer cookies) or 12 minutes for firmer cookies.

I like softer, chewier cookies so 10 minutes is the perfect amount of time for baking. If you’re not a fan of walnuts, leave them out – or add 1 cup of chopped pecans or roasted hazelnuts instead.

Don’t forget the milk!

Pumpkin Almond Chip Cookies

Created by Almond Board of California

These airy cookies are the perfect match to a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. Their texture is tender and muffin-like.

For a crispier exterior, use all brown sugar and bake a few minutes longer. For a super-fluffy crumb, use pumpkin puree without reducing.

Ingredients

2 ½ cups (625 mL) flour
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
½ tsp (2 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) nutmeg
1 tsp  (5 mL) cinnamon or 2 tsp (10 mL) pumpkin pie spice
½ cup (125 mL) butter
½ cup (125 mL) almond butter
1 cup (250 mL) sugar
½ cup (125 mL) brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup (250 mL) reduced pumpkin puree or pumpkin butter*
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
½ cup (125 mL) diced almonds, toasted
1 cup (250 mL) chocolate chips

 


Directions

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt and spices and set aside.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, pumpkin and vanilla and mix until just combined. On medium-low speed, add flour mixture until fully incorporated. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in almonds and chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased or lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the back of a spatula. Bake at 350˚F (180°C) degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes six dozen cookies.

*Reduce pumpkin puree in a pan over medium heat, stirring frequently, for at least an hour, until colour becomes a deep brown. Packaged pumpkin butter may contain additional sweeteners and flavours, so adjust recipe to taste.

Deep Dish Chocolate Toffee Oatmeal Cookies (and a Sundae!)

by Amanda Goetz

The holidays may be over, but I am still craving comfort food. Maybe it’s from the trauma of having the kids home from school for two weeks, or the fear of the impending Visa card bill.

In any case, I can’t stop thinking about soft, chewy, warm from the oven cookies. Especially oatmeal cookies. I decided to throw in some toffee bits and chocolate chips that I had left over from my holiday baking and the result was ah-maze-ing!

These cookies can be made like regular cookies, dropped by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet, or if you’d like something extra special, try making them “deep dish” and cook them in a muffin tin! Top with a little ice cream and hot caramel sauce and you’ve got a real treat for the family.

Deep Dish Chocolate Toffee Oatmeal Cookies, chocolate oatmeal cookies

Deep Dish Chocolate Toffee Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 cups quick-cooking oats

3/4 cup toffee bits

1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325˚F.

In a large bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until combined.

Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon and add the eggs one at a time mixing in between to combine.

Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt and stir into the creamed mixture until well blended.

Add the oats, toffee bits and chocolate chips and incorporate.

Add about 1/4 cup of cookie dough to each cup in a well greased muffin tin.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until cookies are light brown and set.

Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

 

Cookie Sundaes

Place a warm cookie in the bottom of a bowl or on a plate.

Mix 2 tbsp Maple Syrup into 1/4 cup store-bought Caramel Sauce and microwave for 30 seconds to heat.

Top the cookie with a scoop of your favourite ice cream (vanilla and maple walnut are my faves) and pour the hot maple caramel sauce over top.

How to Make Christmas Magical for Your Kids

The Christmas season is the most wonderful time of the year… for many Despite some of the stress involved with all the preparations and family gatherings (and family politics), the holidays are exciting for kids. They have no clue what’s involved in making Christmas special but that’s why we run around like mad the weeks leading up to the big day – to make it magical for them. Every family does what it needs to do to make this time a memorable one. Kids bring joy and a new perspective to the whole Christmas season which is why we try so hard (including getting sucked into the whole Elf on the Shelf shenanigans – or not) to make Christmas as wonderful and magical for them as we can.

Here are some ways you can make Christmas magical for your kids this year.

How to Make Christmas Magical for Your Kids

Build a snowman.

If you experience a good amount of snow where you live, start the holiday season by heading outdoors and building a snowman together with your kids. Dress them warmly, carry some decorations and help them create a cute snowman. The experience itself will be something you are going to relive the next year and you will have made a magical Christmas for the kids.

Go see Christmas lights.

There are some neighbourhoods that go all out with Christmas lights. Remember the Griswolds?!?! Take the kids for a drive in the areas where you know you’ll have a magical light show. Every house you come across will be twinkling and sparkling with beautiful lights and decorations that turn the whole neighbourhood into a beautiful art of bickering lights.

Visit a Christmas Market.

Carry on with the outdoor activities by taking the family to an outdoor Christmas market.  Quaint shops, twinkling lights, hot chocolate and festive crowds will spark Yuletide joy all around! Here are some of the 50 best Christmas markets in the world. CNN also named their favourite 17 Christmas Markets and included the Toronto Christmas Market as one of the best in world. Canada’s Wonderland magically transforms into a Winter Wonderland full of enchantment and holiday cheer during WinterFest!

Engage the kids in Christmas decorations.

Kids love to decorate and this is the perfect time to let them take control of the Christmas decorations (to a point – little ones should likely stay away from glass ornaments!) Start a tradition of driving to a tree farm and choose your own fresh tree! Make it an afternoon with hot chocolate and Christmas carols. Go to the store together and shop for a new ornament to put up on the tree – make it an annual tradition.  Or if you’re crafty, allow the kids to create their own fun Christmas ornaments.

Write a letter to Santa or go see him.

Prompt your kids’ creativity flow by having them write letters to Santa. Let them tell Santa what they have been up to the whole year and tell him what they would like to have for Christmas. You can keep these letters and present to them as a gift much later when they are all grown up. In addition, take them to visit your local Santa. Some families like to visit early in December and use their cute snaps as their family’s Christmas cards.

Bake cookies together.

Spread the Christmas cheer by letting the kids join you in baking some cookies. Sugar or Gingerbread cookies are a fabulous choice because they can use their creativity to decorate them all by themselves. Then, put together some care packages and let your kids deliver the cookies to their neighbours and friends/family. What a great opportunity to begin teaching them the joy spreading Christmas cheer to other people.

Wear matching pyjamas.

On Christmas Eve, dress the whole family in matching pyjamas and let the excitement settle in! Throw on a favourite Christmas movie  – or a not-so-Christmas movie and snuggle with some hot chocolate. Make sure to snap some fun photos and videos as the kids await Santa Claus’s visit down the chimney.

Create homemade cards.

Instead of buying Christmas cards, you can let your kids showcase their creative side by creating DIY cards. These cards have a personal feel that will bring beautiful emotions to those who receive them. There are also some local charities that accept handmade Christmas cards to send to senior homes and those in the military – check your local legion or town hall for info.

Have a family photoshoot.

A family photoshoot every Christmas would be a lovely way to track your kids’ growth over the years and create a wonderful memento! Make the occasion even more enjoyable by dressing in ugly Christmas sweaters or standing in awkward poses.

Donate toys.

Teach your kids the kindness of giving by bringing a smile to another child’s face this holiday season. Shop together for a new toy, and deliver it together to a local toy drive. Make this an annual tradition so they can grow to love giving back.

How to Make Christmas Magical for Your Kids

Go Skating outdoors.

Bundle the family up in snow pants, hats and mittens and visit a local pond or outdoor rink for a family skate! Skating outdoors at night under twinkling lights and Christmas music playing in the background will make the season more magical for kids. Top off the evening with hot chocolate with extra marshmallows!

See a Christmas musical or play.

The theatre is always a good idea any time of the year but during the month of December is much more magical! Book tickets to see a holiday-themed play at your local theatre, or a large musical production in the city. This month I took my mother and niece to see Bend it Like Beckham – The Musical in Toronto; not a seasonal show but the magic of live theatre still put us in the holiday spirit! The musical was fun and entertaining with feel-good dance numbers, moving songs and heart-warming family moments.

Halloween Oreo Pops – Jack O’Lantern and Jack Skellington  

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. I love decorating the house, figuring out costumes, and seeing all the kids out trick-or-treating. I also enjoy making fun Halloween cookies and cupcakes for the kids. As a Rogers ambassador, Ignite TV has an adorable app for Halloween that includes an Arts & Crafts section featuring some fun and easy recipes. Inspired by the recipe which originally appeared on Delish, I created my own Halloween Oreo Pops.

I had to adjust the recipe slightly as white chocolate doesn’t melt very well. Instead, I opted for melting wafers you can find at a bulk foods store as they are easier to work with (I went to Bulk Barn). Here is my recipe:

Halloween Oreo Pops – Jack O’Lantern and Jack Skellington

Ingredients

1 cup white chocolate melting wafers

1 cup orange chocolate melting wafers

1/4 cup dark chocolate melting wafers

16 Oreo cookies

4-5 spearmint gummy leaves

16 lollipop sticks or paper straws

Toothpick

Halloween Oreo Pops Jack Skellington Jack O'Lantern Cookies

Halloween Oreo Pops Jack Skellington Jack O'Lantern RECIPE ~ amotherworld.com

Method

Fill a pot about 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and fit a stainless steel mixing bowl into the pot. The bottom of the bowl should not reach the water with a few inches in between.

Add the white chocolate wafers and stir until melted.

Take the Oreo cookies and pierce a lollipop stick or paper straw (press flat) into the Oreo cookie filling. Using a spoon, pour melted chocolate over an Oreo pop until covered. Allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place onto a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Continue to dip 7 more cookies.

Cut spearmint gummy leaves into thin slices. Melt the orange chocolate wafers. Before cooling, place a spearmint gummy leave as the pumpkin stump.

Place dipped cookies in the refrigerator to cool for about 10 minutes or until set.

Melt dark chocolate in a bowl. Using a toothpick, design faces on Oreo pops. Place back into the fridge to set.

Use the same idea and use green melting chocolate to make Frankensteins and witches!

Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Loaf

It’s that time of the year again… everything pumpkin spice! I love September; school is back in session, and we are enjoying the abundant harvest. Pumpkins will be appearing everywhere… so it’s time to make pumpkin loaf!

Pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, pumpkin loaf, pumpkin cookies… it’s all about that pumpkin. This is a healthier, gluten free version of pumpkin loaf. It uses olive oil and coconut palm sugar instead of butter and regular white sugar.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Loaf

Ingredients

1  1/2 cups gluten-free flour  – I use equal portions of almond meal, tapioca, brown rice and sorghum flours – Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free All-Purpose Baking Flour is a good option. Substitute for regular flour if gluten tolerant.

2 eggs

3/4 cups coconut palm sugar such as Big Tree Farms Organic Coconut Palm Sugar

1 tbsp vanilla

½ cup extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil

1 ½ cups fresh pumpkin puree

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 teaspoons Pumpkin Spice

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup chocolate chips, or dairy-free chocolate chips such as Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini-Chips, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free + Soy-Free, Vegan + Paleo

Gluten Free Pumpkin Loaf Recipe | amotherworld

Directions

Blend together the eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla and olive oil in a stand mixer. In a separate bowl, mix the flours, cinnamon, nutmeg. Stir in pumpkin puree and blend. Add walnuts, chocolate chips (optional).

Pour into parchment lined loaf pan.  Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes to an hour.

Enjoy!
