Soft Orange Cookies with Orange Zested Glaze

We've been talking a lot about "girly" flavors at our house lately.  This is prompted by my husband's proclamation that mint chocolate chip ice cream is "girly".  Orange is also a girly flavor according to him (but cheesecake is not.  Don't ask me how that works.)

Anyways, I'm fine with that because it means I have two dozen of these all to myself; thank you very much.  Although it will probably shock you, I do believe in moderation.  Usually when I bake I sample a few bites and give the rest away.

Not these.

I have purposely lost count of how many I've eaten. (Although I am sick, and everyone knows you're supposed to have lots of Vitamin C when you've got a cold, so I'm pretty sure these cookies have lots of medicinal value.)

This is officially one of my favorite cookie recipes. These are soft and orangey and a bit floury (but in a good, filling, fabulously textured way).  I highly recommend them.

Annnnd... not to be snooty or anything.  But I'm a pretty good cookie judger.  I mean, I've been practicing for most of my life, so I think I'm a pretty reliable source. (Although if you're not female you might want to double-think this because husband didn't care for these much.  He preferred the Oreo Cheesecake cookies which totally weirded me out... I don't think cream cheese really belongs in cookies, you know?)

Anyways... try them and let me know what you think.

Happy Tuesday!

Chocolate-dipped Pretzel Peanut Butter Bites

If I had to survive on one food for the rest of my life, it would be chocolate covered pretzels. (I'm pretty sure there are lots of scenarios that would require me to choose a single food source, so I figured this out long ago.)

So really, how could I not make these?

This treat combines chocolate pretzely goodness with mini Reeses cups.  These are a bit time consuming because they are dipped, but they are worth it.
