Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F and grease a cookie sheet or an 8x8 pan and set it aside. Then, add the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl and whisk them together.

Step 2

Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients and mix the butter in with your hands (similar to how you'd make biscuits). The texture should be like thick sand.

Step 3

Take the dough out of the bowl and put it onto a greased cookie sheet. I prefer to wrap the dough in cling wrap first to form a log, which makes the dough easier to handle. Now, spread out the dough evenly on the pan. You can also opt to sprinkle sugar on top of the dough to give it an extra touch of sweetness.

Step 4

Place the cookie sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. When finished baking, take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes. While still warm, cut the cookies on the pan and allow them to cool. All that's left now is to share the cookies with friends or eat them all by yourself (I'm not judging).

Snacking Vs. Night Eating Syndrome

Have you ever found yourself secretly eating large amounts of food at night, even though you weren’t really hungry to begin with? Did you feel guilty afterward, only to repeat it again the following night? This type of behavior could be a sign of a serious condition that affects more than 1.5% of the population.

Night eating syndrome (NES) is a type of eating disorder that was originally described in 1955 and is now part of the DSM-5 list of feeding and eating disorders. While this condition does occur more commonly in individuals who are obese or overweight, this isn’t always the case. Night eating syndrome is characterized by the following behaviors:

  • Delayed circadian pattern of food intake
    • 25% of food eaten after the evening meal
    • Lack of desire to eat in the morning
    • Skipping breakfast 4 or more mornings a week
    • Waking in the night to eat 2 or more times a week
    • Memory of evening and overnight eating the next day
    • Belief that eating is necessary to be able to sleep
    • Eating at night despite not being hungry
    • Lack of control over eating behavior
    • Eating large amounts in one sitting
    • Delayed sleep onset or frequent waking 4 or more nights a week
    • Insomnia
    • Depression, especially in the evening
    • Anxiety
    • Guilt and shame nocturnal eating [1]

    There are multiple factors that may contribute to the development of night eating syndrome, some physical and some emotional. Genetics, problems with the sleep-wake cycle, and abnormal hormone levels are all believed to play a role. Obesity and a history of mental health issues or substance abuse may increase the likelihood of developing NES as well.

    Just like most other eating disorders, treatment for night eating syndrome includes a combination of therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, nutritional support, and strategies aimed at changing beliefs around eating and sleep.


    4. Popcorn Snack Mix

    For those that prefer a savory snack late at night, popcorn is a great, satisfying go-to. Combining popcorn with pistachios and semi-sweet chocolate chips makes this a healthy late-night snack that won't derail your day of mindful eating.

    Nuts (pistachios, included) are a great source of healthy unsaturated fats, according to the Mayo Clinic. Unsaturated fat is not only filling but may even benefit your heart health by helping to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Not to mention, eating nuts has been associated with lower levels of inflammation in the body.

    What are late-night wedding snacks?

    These snacks are similar to the classic wedding appetizers and hors d'oeuvres&mdashthe main difference is that they're served toward the end of your wedding reception, instead of during cocktail hour or dinner. Your late-night snacks should also be small and fairly easy to grab and go, allowing guests to continue mingling or head straight back to the dance floor. Bite-sized foods and party foods, like mini hot dogs, slices of pizza, french fries, and doughnuts are some of the most popular wedding finger food ideas, but this is an opportunity to get creative and serve any snack that you simply can't do without on your big day.


    Amy Schumer (and Son Gene!) Make Her Ultimate Late-Night Snack In Preview of Her New Cooking Show

    Amy Schumer is on her way to becoming an incredible chef.

    Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, the new cooking show starring Schumer and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, is coming to the Food Network on May 11. The pair shot all eight episodes in their home and each is filled with humor, good food, and special guest appearances from the couple&aposs son, Gene.

    "Watching Amy and Chris is intimate, real, fun and just great TV," said Courtney White, President, Food Network in a press release. "The nanny holds the camera, as Chris makes incredibly delicious food and Amy&aposs sharp wit delivers laugh out loud moments all the way through.

    In a sneak preview clip from the second episode, the pair make some of their favorite late-night treats — fried rice, chicken wings, and peanut butter cup cookies.

    While Fischer does most of the cooking, the Trainwreck star does help out in small ways, from putting the cookie dough on the pan to turning off the oven timer. As with every beginner chef, there are some mishaps too, like accidentally taking a huge bite out of the log of raw cookie dough — oops.

    Fischer isn&apost the only one serving up good recipes though. Schumer shares her ultimate late-night snack: buttered Matzah with salt.

    "Spread a nice, thick layer of butter — cause be real with yourself, you&aposre already having butter. Live your life," she says.

    Along the way, Schumer learns a few cooking techniques, like the chiffonade cut, a slicing technique used on leafy veggies and herbs. Fischer chiffonades a shallot and parsley, which become the start of a wing sauce. By stirring together the shallots and parsley with salt, lemon juice, and plain yogurt they create a mouthwatering sauce.

    Schumer seems thrilled to finally learn how to make wings. "Knowing how to make wings is so exciting to me," she says. They enjoy wings as a family often, and now Schumer can pitch in and help!

    One thing Schumer is already an expert on is cocktail making. She crafts the perfect Moscow mule to go with their meal. If you&aposre really trying to impress someone, she thinks this meal is the perfect way to do that. Bon appetite.
