Reese's Pieces cupcakes!

I love peanut butter, so by extension, I also love Reese's Pieces - both for eating and for baking! They are probably one of the most versatile candies to use in baking - they go well in cookies, with Nutella or with chocolate chips. I've made them in brownies as well (although I didn't get a chance to blog that creation).

Peanut butter cup cookies

I guess April must be my own personal cookie baking month or something. So far, of the five recipes I've posted during this month (including this one), four of them have been cookies. Must be a sign that it's been a busy month - cookies are a lot quicker to bake than baking, filling, and icing cupcakes!

Coconut mango mochi cupcakes

Thai food seems to be a pretty popular choice for when my company orders lunch and for a good reason. Who doesn't love pad thai, curry, and - best of all - mango sticky rice for dessert? After the third or fourth helping of mango sticky rice in about a month, it suddenly hit me that I could take these flavors and put them into a cupcake!

Puffy snickerdoodles

And as promised, here's part two of my Friday night cookie extravaganza: snickerdoodles! I baked these at the same time as I made my caramel gingersnaps and I've been bringing these cookies to every weekend activity so far - but there are STILL cookies leftover. Which is not a bad problem at all to have!

Soft chewy caramel gingersnaps

It's a Friday night and what do I do? Get a friend to come over and BAKE ALL THE COOKIES! We couldn't decide between two recipes that I wanted to try, so like any normal baker would do, we made them both.

Brown sugar cookies

So a lot has happened since the last time I baked n' blogged - HIMYM ended, Game of Thrones started, I went golfing and hiking, and somehow, with zero knowledge of basketball, managed to produce a bracket that predicted the winning team.
