Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies; Christmas Cookies

I’ve been baking cookies since I was a child.

I’ve baked lots and lots of all types of cookies – drop cookies, cut-out cookies, rolled cookies, pressed cookies, fancy cookies and simple cookies.

I’ve baked them on dry baking sheets, buttered baking sheets and oiled baking sheets.

This is the first time I have baked cookies on parchment paper.

How could I have been so, so, so….. ignorant? stuck in a time-warp? foolish? glutton for extra work?.

Baking cookies on parchment paper, for those who have never done it, is so easy and works like a dream.

No more buttering the baking sheet, using a spatula to get the cookies off, washing the baking sheet and doing it all again.

Just slide the paper with the cookies off the baking sheet and repeat.

Maybe I thought the extra work was to stave off the guilt of eating all the cookies….

Foolish woman!

Now, for some of my other favorite cookies…..

This is the current list, subject to change without notice.

Caramel Icebox Cookies

A recipe from my grandmother: Make dough, shape into 2 logs and refrigerate. When you get the urge, slice and bake. The recipe calls for almonds….
I don’t have almond trees, I have walnut trees. I use walnuts.

Caramel Icebox Cookies


These are so light they hardly qualify as cookies – which means one can eat a lot of them as they have almost no calories. Trust me….


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk

With both peanut butter and oatmeal how can these not be good for us?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk

Ginger Chocolate Chunk

All of my cookies are ‘chocolate chunk’ rather than ‘chocolate chip’. I can’t get chocolate chips so I buy big bars of chocolate and smash them with my trusty ‘chocolate hammer’. You can see it on the plate of chocolate chunks. Naturally, I have to eat any leftover chocolate.

.The hammer also works well for ‘chopping’ nuts.  Put them in a sturdy bag… or have dogs to clean up the bits that hit the floor.

Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookes

All of these cookies freeze well.

And keeping them in the freezer also makes it just the tiniest bit harder to snack indiscriminately.

Happy Christmas Cookies!

  1. I discovered the joys of parchment paper about 15 years ago when helping out with events where we were cooking for 100+ people. I learned alot during those years of working as a team. I use parchment paper weekly – saves up on cleaning – and like you – if I can reuse it depending on what I cooked – more power (one more tree saved 😉 ). If I have time this week while I’m off work – I maybe giving a few of your recipes a try – of course – the folks that will be receiving these are all Type 1 diabetics like myself – hooked on insulin – but heck – gotta have some yummy sweets at Christmas – if I croak 2 months earlier due to consumption of these – well – I’ll have a big smile of satisfaction on my face 🙂 Merry Christmas Kate!!!

  2. Love all of your cookies and, yes, parchment paper makes a difference. Happy Holidays Katie. I love visiting here and hope someday to meet you in France. You are always an inspiration and good for a chuckle with the dogs antics and the home renovations. Your home is beautiful. I assume there is not much left to do. Right?

  3. Since I have a psychotic oven….parchment paper is a life saver. I can’t tell you how many cookies I’ve thrown out over the years. I use it on just about anything I put on a baking sheet, including fish and chicken.

  4. The Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies look just the thing to accompany my Triple Ginger ones. Parchment paper and foil have saved me many hours of toil over the years. When we lived where supplies of them were not available, there was always space for some in my suitcase. That was when each piece was used again and again if possible.

  5. Kate, apparently I’m a little slow LOL

    Anna, yeah, the insulin goes up around here, too – but only a little. I mean, one can replace toast with cookies, right? LOL It’s only 1 week out of 52….

    Penny, not much left,,,, and then all the bits LOL

    Zoomie, I don’t know why it took me so long… baking was so much easier this year.

    Phoenicia, have faith 😉

    Stacy…. oh, fish – I can use it for dish, too! Thanks LOL

    Gill, Triple Ginger…. I think I need that recipe….
