Can we just stop and take a moment and think about how amazing you all are?





The other day I posted about a nasty comment that I got on the blog and how I need to be more like a duck to just let things roll off my back.

First, I want to say that that comment upset me a whole heck of a lot more than I care to admit.  And isn’t that part of the evilness that is anonymity on the internet?  I know absolutely nothing about this person and yet I totally let them wreck my day.  It doesn’t even make sense.

On the other hand, I totally let the amazing comments that I got on that post MAKE my day.  I should say days, because they keep coming in.  I am blown away by people actually taking the time to read my blog.  And then someone mentioned how much she looks forward to seeing Wine & Glue in her email inbox and I was crying.

No lie.

So, thank you.  Thank you all for being you.  Thank you for being the reason that I can do this amazing job.  I get to stay home with my kids, I get to bake, I get to be creative, I get to take photos, and while it is harder than I think I have ever worked at anything . . . ever . . . I feel like I am living the dream.

Thank you.

And as a teenie tiny show of appreciation for all of you, leave a comment on this blog post and you will be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card.  Now through October 14th.  *CLOSED*Thanks for entering!

You guys are the best.

I should probably talk about this recipe, lol!

You guys these cookies are insanely good!  They are soft, delicious, and have the taste of apple and cinnamon with a little caramel baked right in the center of them.  I ate way more of these cookies than I normally do of blog treats and way more than I’m comfortable admitting!  These are great anytime of year, but super fun in fall.


Caramel Apple Sugar Cookies

Yield: Approximately 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar + more for rolling
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 TBSPs butter at room temperature (see note)
  • 1/3 cup apple butter (see note)
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 24 mini rolos


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined.
  2. Beat the butter and apple butter together until well combined. Add in the 1 1/2 cups sugar and beat until fluffy, about three minutes. Add in the vanilla and then eggs, one at a time.
  3. Slowly add in the flour mixture while beating on low. Beat until just combined, scraping down as necessary.
  4. Chill the dough for 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking pans with silicon mats or parchment paper.
  5. Roll the chilled dough around the Rolos, one for each cookie, to make a dough ball about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  6. Bake two inches apart for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies just turn golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for two minutes and then carefully remove them to a cooling rack until completely cooled. Store in an airtight container.


You should be able to push a finger into the butter easily but not all the way through. Apple Butter is found in the grocery store near the jelly.

    I love when readers see that nasty comment and they jump to your defense before you even do! They have our backs and it’s pretty freakin’ amazing. Just like these cookies. I want to make them, yet I know I’ll devour them if I do!

  2. says

    Yep, we totally have your back girl! I know negative and hateful comments can really bring you down (they bother me too), but just remember you’re above all that, and whoever it is that doesn’t have anything nice to say is their own punishment. Btw, I want these cookies SO BAD! Ugh, they’re perfect for this time of year. Can’t wait to make them! 🙂

    Love the recipes on your blog and look forward to each of your postings. Sorry that there are so many that have to leave nasty comments. You are right in letting it roll off your back. And these cookies look amazing!

    I always look forward to your Wine & Glue posts. The Caramel Apple Sugar Cookies look wonderful and will be on my weekend baking list. Thanks and keep blogging.

    These look so yummy! I can’t wait to make them. Also I have come to the conclusion that most people are mean and stupid, so please don’t allow a complete stranger that is mean and stupid to control your feelings and ruin your day. I have grown feathers down my back and thicker skin to help with this LOL!

    All the cowardly haters who post anonymous comments just need to shut up. If you’re scared enough of what you’ve written because you know it’s disgusting and you’re posting it because you’re angry about something else, then you suck. There. I said it.
    Don’t listen, Lisa. I love your blog, and I love reading everything you write.
    And these cookies are the bomb. Caramel apple is BRILLIANT.

    Don’t be a hater!! It all goes back to that person. They must be really miserable, to write such mean things!! Love, love, love your blog! I read it everyday . These cookies look amazing! Can’t wait to try them!!

    I didn’t know that “be a duck” was someone else’s mantra, too. My in-laws use it all the time! It’s unfortunate when you find yourself on the wrong side of someone else’s bad day. I work in the medical field and that’s my explanation for patient rudeness. I hope your hater reads all the outpouring of support for you and your site and apologizes (though they probably won’t.) Congratulations on creating something that makes you and others happy. That’s all you can really hope for.
