We all know Cookie Monster loves to eat cookies, but it turns out he's quite the baker, too! Cookie Monster's famous cookie dough recipe first appeared in Big Bird's Busy Book , from the 1970's. If you like a bit of nostalgia mixed in with your sugar and eggs, this recipe is for you: If it's difficult to read the instructions above, here they are verbatim: Ingredients 3/4 cup unsalted butter or margarine, softened 1 cup sugar 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking flour 1 teaspoon salt Equipment Medium-sized mixing bowl Measuring cup and spoons A fork Instructions 1.
By Lauren, on July 20th, 2012 I know, I know… it seems as though I’ve been posting sweet recipe after sweet recipe (with a little something cheesy thrown in); but you see, after what seemed like a long time during which sweets were unappealing during my first trimester, (what can I say, pregnancy does some strange things to your body!), they’re apparently back with a vengeance on my appetite’s menu. Sooooo if you’re a sweet freak like me, all I can say about my recent recipe post pattern is: you’re welcome.
I love Twix candy bars, but I'm not crazy about all the additives. This recipe is like Twix candy bar goes gourmet, but super easy to make.
Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by.
I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. These are one of Kev’s favorite homemade treats, and he usually asks me to make them at least once a week.
While I fully realize that most of my recent posts have been of the treat/dessert variety, I must continue in this thread because I would not be a good blogging friend if I didn’t share this latest cookie with you. With almost two pounds of chocolate hidden in their deep, dark depths, these cookies are not for the faint of heart. But oh my are they worth it.
Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies ~These are one of my favorite Christmas cookies.
If you like chocolate and toffee as much as I do you will love these! Caution: this recipe has a pound of chocolate in it and is very rich. Decadent might be an understatement. Word of wisdom….make sure you’re not wearing your skinny jeans when you make these;-)
