Easter Bunny Butter Shortbread Cookies With Lemon Drizzle

Easter Bunny Butter Shortbread Cookies

EASY EASTER SHORTBREAD   The best memories I have of baking especially at Easter is coming into the kitchen after school and smelling and seeing what my mom had baked. My favourite cookie that my mum would make is the butter shortbread cookie which I will share with you here today.These butter shortbread cookies are super easy to make and decorate and are far better to make homemade vs store-bought cookies. My mum used to make these amazing double shortbread cookies which are two pieces of shortbread loaded with jam in the middle and icing on top. We always used to fight over those when we were kids just because they were doubled up and stuffed cookies. After moving to Canada I had to get this shortbread recipe from mum so I could bake it with my kids, which is actually my grandma’s recipe. I love lemon and so does my family which is why I created this shortbread cookie with lemon drizzle. My youngest Rhia is the helper to decorate the cookies even though she eats more than the actual decorating. Of course there is always a fight to see who gets to finish off the lemon drizzle icing or to have […]

Mr.CBB’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls have been a tradition in Mrs.CBB’s family ever since she was a little girl. She would help her grandmother make these peanut butter balls covered in chocolate, so delicate for the Christmas Holidays. When her granny no longer could make this recipe for peanut butter balls she passed it down to Mrs.CBB who has made them ever since. Now we have made them together ever since we’ve been married. We have made a few changes to granny’s recipe by adding in some green cherries and vanilla although it really is a no fail recipe. The great thing about peanut butter balls recipes are that they are a no-bake recipe and budget friendly. So if you don’t happen to have an oven to bake and wanted or needed to bring a Homemade Christmas Treat to a party you could easily make these on the stove top. I warn you it can get a bit messy when melting chocolate for dipping the Peanut Butter Balls sometimes called buckeye balls candy. Alternatively you can switch the recipe up and instead of peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate you could make white chocolate covered peanut butter balls instead. You could […]

Mr.CBB’s Family Holiday Snowballs…Mmmm

Mr.CBB's Holiday Snowballs On A Tray

These Holiday Snowballs are going to melt in your mouth and you will be sneaking them one by one when no one else is looking. It’s so hard not to because you can’t resist the taste and they keep calling out to you. At least that’s what happens to me. I pop one in my mouth and instantly you hear, Mmmm, Mmmm. I’m like an 8 month old child trying new flavours for the first time. It’s now December and with the festive season upon so is baking Christmas Cookies and this Holiday Snowball recipe is an easy Christmas cookie recipe. It’s pretty much no fail and really no effort at all to make. They are actually very budget friendly and the kids can help to make them as well. If you remember from reading the previous Grocery Game Challenge- Ho, Ho, Ho Holiday Treats, I gave you a full run down of what I was going to make each week in December for the upcoming festivities. The goal is to finish them all and it’s a lofty goal for us but we will try. Mrs.CBB has been making these recipes compliments of her grandmother for many years as Holiday Baking is […]
