Toll Hose Cookies

Summer’s here, and with that comes bbqs, summer parties and cottaging.  A few weeks ago friends of mine had a little summer solstice party in their backyard.  I thought it would be a fun idea to bring a hostess gift that everyone could enjoy, like my toll house cookies! This recipe comes from my dessert company Simply Sweet and they were my most popular cookie. I even sold the cookie dough in rolls to bake at home.

Now I’m sharing the recipe with you online!

It’s the Perfect Cookie!! These toll house cookies will be your go to cookie recipe, it’s even better than the beloved chocolate chip cookie with two types of chocolate, two types of sugar and pecans of course.

Happy Baking!

Potato Dill Quiche with Goat Cheese 

This potato and dill quiche with goat cheese is made using a classic pie pastry crust and is loaded with roasted potatoes, red peppers, garlic, goat cheese and of course fresh dill! The combination of milk and cream gives a richer and creamier flavour than the typical quiche recipe.
