Levain Bakery Copycat Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie

So with that came trips to City Hall to get a business certificate, sending numerous emails to photographers to ask to assist and/or second shoot for them for weddings coming up this summer, spending time at banks to make up a business account, etc etc. So unfortunately this blog has once again gone by the wayside.

Snickerdoodles with Spice and Everything Nice

As we are now a little over a month into the fall season, I am all about trying to make comfort food recipes. To me, one of the best sweet comfort foods is a cookie. As I am trying to make a new recipe every week to challenge my cooking skills, I made the very popular snickerdoodle cookie. I got the recipe from the blog Averie Cooks, which by the way is an awesome blog with a lot of recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Super easy recipe to make, I would say this is probably the easiest cookie recipe I have made other than the traditional chocolate chip cookie. The secret ingredient in this is cream of tartar, something I never would have guessed you used in these cookies. This is a great snickerdoodle cookie recipe, I highly recommend it. Recipe here
