Chocolate Yogurt Cookies

I think I found my new favorite cookie recipe!!!

These. Are. AMAZING!!! If you have ever had a Ghiardelli Chocolate Pazookie from BJ’s restaurant, just close your eyes and imagine gooey, chocolate richness for a moment… yeah, that’s what these taste like. I almost cried the first time I took a bite of one of these!

The ingredients are super simple, not even requiring an egg. And they were super quick and easy to make. I know this all sounds too good to be true, so go test it and see for yourself!

(Note: I used French Vanilla yogurt that I had on hand, and our home ground flour)

Ginger Cookies!

I had to share this new cookies recipe that I found via Pinterest a few weeks ago… it is AMAZING!

I decided I wanted to find a cookie recipe on Pinterest to try out and boy am I glad I chose this one! It’s actually a Better Homes & Gardens recipe for giant ginger cookies. I tried making a giant one, but I like to stretch the dough and get more cookies from one recipe… even if it means they’re smaller.;) I made the dough balls about an inch big and changed the baking time to 9 min.

Colorful Snickerdoodles

Happy December!!!

Thought I would post one of my favorite cookie recipes to get you in the baking mood.:)

(If you’re not already!)

Last month I was making snickerdoodles and decided to roll them in colorful sugar and cinnamon instead of just plain old sugar. They turned out awesome! I did red and orange sugar for fall until the red ran out, then switched to yellow. The colorful sugar crystals are a little bit bigger than plain sugar so the dough would collect the sugar faster than the powdery cinnamon, but it still worked pretty well.

Cookie Painting!

I love brothers! Mine like to mess with projects that I’m working on, which can be annoying sometimes but they do give me good ideas once in a while.

I was decorating cookies the other day and had some food coloring laying around to color my icing with. I had a few cookies already decorated and set aside. Pretty soon someone was asking me if it was alright to “paint” one of the decorated cookies with some of the food coloring. I said it was OK and turned back to the cookie that I was decorating not thinking much about it. When I looked back at the cookie that was being painted I saw how nice the color was staying! I wanted to try it too!

So I did!

It is so hard to get colors like this in icing, who knew that I would learn about a decorating technique like this from a brother messing around! ;)

I will definitely be using this method of coloring in the future!
