** Excuse me for the bad picture and also please note that OXO has not asked me or contacted me in anyway regarding this post. I am not getting anything for my mentioning of this container. I just wanted to share something that works for me.**
I still have not figured out a really cute way to picture cookies. I am not sure what my problem is but the picture never comes out right so I decided this time around to show you the cookies in my new cookie jar. This is the new OXO 5 qt cookie jar that I bought a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I would just put the cookies in some Tupperware and the cookies never stayed fresh so I knew I had to get something that was airtight especially since we seem to always get a small ant infestation once a year as well and would not want to see ants on my cookies.This jar keeps the cookies fresh, I tested it last week with a batch of chocolate chip cheesecake cookies (sorry no pictures) and I don't think I will ever see any ants so I am very happy with my purchase.
This time around I decided on making some Orange Creamsicle Cookies that taste exactly like orange creamsicle ice cream. These are light and moist and slightly sweet, exactly what I expect out of a cookie. I don't like hard cookies at all (another bonus of this cookie jar is that the cookies do not get hard, LOVE IT!).
I found this recipe over at Sprinkled with Flour which came from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. I will let you click over there for the recipe.
I will work on getting better cookie pictures and baking more sweets for you soon.
