Skinny Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

skinny sugar cookies2 003

  You can bring these cookies to a a Holiday party and not let anyone know they were Weight Watcher Cookies. Believe me, no one will know the difference! They tasted like the sugar cookies my Grandma would always make but with less butter. Butter is my favorite baking ingredient to work with and when I bake, I don't want to leave that out! The blue frosting color I made, almost reminded me of the Disney Movie Frozen. Make them for that too. Theyre supposed to be snowflakes. Parden my ...

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

chocolate peppermint cookies 016

Yesterday, was baking day. Made some Chocolate Peppermint Cookies, Pumpkin Cupcakes, and caramels. I'm STILL in a baking mood after all that. The caramels still need to be dipped in chocolate and they were made for a picture re-take from last year. It's my favorite caramel recipe. We went shopping at Sam's Club tonight and boy did I ever do something stupid. The guy at the check out said our card was expired. No it wasn't, my Mom and I got a shared membership there this summer, how can it ...

Peppermint Oreo Icebox Cake

peppermint icebox cake 031

Remember the Oreo Icebox Cake that I made? I took that same concept and made a Peppermint Oreo version. Have you tried the peppermint Oreos yet? Mmm think those are my favorite oreos ever. I've been looking for the candy cane ones and can only seem to fine minis. Then Trader Joe's has the Candy Cane Joe Joe's, those are fantastic and would be great in this. This time, instead of putting the oreos and cool whip into an 8x8 pan, I used a bread loaf pan so that it would look taller and a little ...

EggNog Cookies

roasted acorn squash 047

This weekend,  I was in a Holiday baking mood. Everybody is making Thanksgiving sides and dishes, but I just want to go straight to the part where we make Christmas cookies and baked goods for friends and family.   These cookies were so good, I had to stop myself from eating them and drinking a whole container of eggnog by myself.  Is anybody else really happy that eggnog is back? What is your favorite eggnog? We like to get Southern Comfort eggnog, but since I am watching my calories it's Cass C ...

Candy Corn Cookie Pizza

Candy Corn Cookie Pizza 002

It's National Candy Corn day on October 30th, did you know that? Candy corn is everybody's favorite candy right? I guess it depends on the person because I've seen a lot of facebook pages ask whether or not they like candy corn lately. Some hate it, others love. It's kind of like cilantro. You either hate it or love it. At least candy corn doesn't taste like dish soap. I had to stop myself after eating one slice of this pizza! It was so good with some ice cream on top. Do you know why I ...

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

chocolate chunk cookies 013

These chocolate chunk cookies have browned butter and chunks of chocolate in them. Another great recipe from Ree Drummond. I did couch to 5k a while ago and decided I should start running again. That program now has an app for your phone which is pretty nice. It prompts you when to start running and when to start walking. The original couch 2 5k downloads had techno music playing in the background and today, I was forced to listen to the sounds of traffic coming from the Interstate. That made ...

Almond Raspberry Macarons

raspberry almond macarons 009

  After MANY fails of trying different macaron recipes, I was browsing pinterest today and came across a step by step page that showed you how to do everything. You do not know how many times I have tried making these before. I'd be so disappointed  when the cookie didn't turn out and get their famous little bottom they're known for. They were still good and I would still eat them. The key to making macaron cookies like these is to let the batter rest before you bake them. The first b ...

Cookie Dough Balls

cookie dough balls 040

  Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! In honor of today, I went to the grocery store and got some chocolate chip cookies. I remember when we used to be able to go there and get cookies for less than 15 cents. Not any more. Now you have to spend almost 3.00 for a container of them. The chocolate chip cookies weren't enough, so I decided to go home and make some chocolate chip cookie dough balls. If you're craving just the cookie dough and are afraid to get sick from the raw eggs, ...
