Mandelhoernchen: Chocolate-Dipped Almond Horns

First things first: MAKE THESE. Just do it. Put it on your list. You won't be sorry. 

Mandelhoernchen: Chocolate-Dipped Almond Horns
Now to clarify, I am not German. I don't think we have any German heritage. I do like beer and pretzels, but that's about it. I mention that to clarify that I really don't know what I'm talking about here as far as these being authentically German.

Mandelhoernchen: Chocolate-Dipped Almond Horns
Mandelhoernchen. Almond Horn Cookies. My first encounter with these was in Chapel Hill, NC when my aunt and uncle took us to this wonderful German Cafe and Bakery. I'm not kidding when I say that I wanted one of everything in that place. (It's called's actually in Durham.)

Conversation heart cookies...they're some of the simplest cookies to make, and some of the cutest! The personalization you can do with these is unlimited. (I could have added saying to cookies all day. So many sayings, not enough cookies.)

As much as I love the large cookies, I'm really smitten with those minis, especially "QT." Get it?

Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Soft-Baked Snickerdoodles

Helloooooo, Trader Joe's Friends! Happy Saturday!

trader joe's soft-baked snickerdoodles review : part of a weekly review series of tj's desserts and treats
Today, we're reviewing Trader Joe's Soft-Baked Snickerdoodles. I'll be honest, when I picked up the box, I didn't notice that they were labeled as being "free of wheat, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, and soy." Hmmm.

A 6-ounce box of cookies costs...I'm not sure. I can't find my receipt, but I'm going to say $2-3-ish.

Take a Little Pizza My Heart ... Valentine Cookies

take a little pizza my heart, decorated cookies for valentine's day!
I love these cookies on so many levels. 

A. I love pizza.
B. I love love.
C. I love hearts.
D. I love a cheesy valentine pun.
E. I love cookies. (That goes without saying.)

take a little pizza my heart, decorated cookies for valentine's day!
The inspiration for these cookies is threefold. I found a cute valentine at Target (birthplace of cookie ideas) that said, "You have a pizza my heart." After seeing that card, Janis Joplin was on repeat in my head...and she hasn't left..."Take another little piece of (pizza) my heart now, baby..." And third, I remembered Callye's brilliant pizza cookie tutorial.

It was the trifecta of cookie inspiration.
