The Best Things We Ate in 2020

In an atypical year for food, our staff got creative in the kitchen.

Espresso-Spiked White Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

These cookies have ground coffee and coffee liqueur to give them the perfect robust flavor. Walnuts add a nutty crunch and the white chocolate adds sweetness. Try these with a cold glass of milk or a fresh-brewed cup of coffee.

Apple–Oatmeal Cookies

These Oatmeal Cookies are the Yummiest, Chewiest You’ve Ever Tasted

As we continue sharing cookies in our Great Statewide Cookie Exchange this month, this time we turn to a commercial bakery that shared its secret for the yummiest, chewiest oatmeal cookies you ever tasted.

Want a not-so-sweet cookie? Try Piparkukas

Here’s another cookie from our Great Statewide Cookie Exchange, submitted from the Kansas City area. Piparkukas are Latvian Gingerbread Cookies, and we like them for snacks because they’re spicy but not overly sweet.

We love Christmas Cookies!

Our Missouri Life Ambassadors recruited talented home bakers from around the state who generously shared their favorite Christmas cookie recipes. Try out this delicious Chocolate Mint Cookie recipe.
