Sugar Cookies to Decorate

Ok, I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve always had the problem of finding a sugar cookie recipe that doesn’t spread out. One that I can mess about with, make shapes and decorate without worrying about it spreading out or being too soft and falling apart. Well, I finally found one.

Awhile back, I was in the depths of Pinterest and I happened to pass a recipe that sounded decent, so I attempted it, mostly following the recipe. I ended up changing it slightly, and got what I consider the best sugar cookie for decorating. Although it isn’t the sweetest, it’s on the floury side, I like it because it doesn’t spread out and it isn’t too sweet for icing. Therefore, for my purposes, it was perfect. Since finding the recipe, I’ve used it a few times and finally took photos to post it here. Recently, I made them for Gage’s birthday party (will be posted in the next couple weeks).

Cherry Meringue Cookies

Hello! This past New Year’s Eve was a big one for me, I had my now boyfriend’s family coming to my house for dinner and dessert and had to think of some sort of celebration dessert that would make tons of servings that everyone would love. My head, of course, flew first to my favorite bar recipe of all time, my cookie bars, but the only problem I could see was the amount of butter and the limited portions for our guests. And for at least three teenagers being there, that just wasn’t going to cut it. So, I took a chance and decided to go the ‘new’ route. If I didn’t have a good recipe that made tons, why not find/make one?

I’m not quite up to the entire making your recipe from scratch quite yet, as I am still exploring the basics of some cooking skills. This being said, if I see a recipe,there is a 95% chance I’ll base it off the recipe and call it good enough. This past New Year’s was a perfect example of that. I decided on these RASPBERRY confetti cookies, but I didn’t have some of the called ingredients, you know, like raspberry jello. But they turned out well so therefore, mission accomplished.

Minnie Mouse Oreo Pops

For Salem’s party, we also had some fun treats like these Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops as well as Bow Pasta Salad and later, the Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes.

These pops were super easy in theory, but a little harder to actually make. They tasted delightful though.

Banana ‘Cookie’ Bars

Hello! The other day I was expecting company, so I decided it would only be right if I baked some sort of good. Of course, my first idea was my quick and delicious cookie bars. I begin to start the recipe and preheat the oven when I realize, we are out of butter. Of course, cookie bars cannot be made without butter, can they? So I decided to try. I used only banana instead of the butter and continued making the recipe. Not sure what to expect, when this beauty of a cake-y cookie came out, I was delighted. No one could stop eating these, and it’s probably more than half the fat my cookie bars are. Of course, that likely won’t stop me from making either again.

Here is the cookie bar recipe copied and pasted and changed slightly to be banana ‘cookie’ bars. 🙂

Cookie Bars

Hello everyone! How has your weekend been? My weekend is flying by. Yesterday my family asked me to make dessert because we were having company over, so I decided on cookie bars. I could have sworn it was only 12 when I had tied my TARDIS apron and was ready to bake them but no… It was already 3. Do I just take random naps and not remember them? It’s starting to seem that way…

Okay. Back to the recipe… This recipe is a simple sugar cookie recipe turned into cookie bars. The recipe is not quite mine, I got it from Pillsbury and slightly altered it. Original recipe can be found here.

Egg-less Cookie Dough

Happy Easter(ok… it’s a bit late)! To celebrate, I have created a recipe for homemade cookie dough and even made truffles. These are super easy and my first no-bake recipe. My favorite part of these are how easy they are to make them a different type of cookie dough by just using this cookie dough ‘base’ recipe. They will be

This recipe has the full-fat goodness of cookie dough. Of course, there are quite a few substitutes you could do to make it slightly healthier.

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am still continuously cooking… I may or may not have made cookies despite it being Passover and I’m not allowed to eat anything that rises… Unfortunately, I’m not very good at remembering not to eat bread and baked goods… So of course, I made cookies. These cookies are just how I like them, nice and crispy or warm and soft when they are straight out of the oven. My favorite part is the fact you can always play around with them. Add mini chocolate chips… Or swipe a little bit of nutella in the batter and some white chocolate chips and you have chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips. There are endless ideas and you already have a base recipe. Assuming you enjoy crispy cookies as much as I do… If not, I will post a recipe for chewy cookies some other day. For now, we shall enjoy the crunchy goodness of this sugary treat.
