Cookie Dough for Preggies! I was craving cookie dough today. Not really cookies, but just the cookie dough. Of course, I knew that I wasn't supposed to eat dough with raw eggs in it, so I lucked out when I found this recipe for cookie dough for ice cream. It didn't have all the extra ingredients that are important when you're going to cook the dough, stuff like baking soda. And it was eggless, and super simple to make. I made a few adjustments based on the reviews (and doubled it in the process), and am pretty pleased with the results. Eggless Cookie Dough 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup butter, softened 1/4 tsp. vanilla 1/4 cup milk 1 cup flour Pinch salt 1/2 cup chocolate chips In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar and butter until smooth. It's a bit wet right at first, chilling helps it to harden and get a better texture.

How to Make Peanut Butter S'Mores Turnovers Peanut Butter- S’Mores Turnovers I’m not much of a camper. My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too. When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Story telling, snuggling in blankets, singing songs and roasting marshmallows for S’Mores seem to be recurring favorites. Here’s the How To: Thaw out a box of Puff Pastry, and cut along the fold lines to make 6 large rectangles. Layer 1/4 of a whole graham cracker, a piece of milk chocolate bar and a spoonful of peanut butter on one side of the Puff Pastry. Wet the edges with water (dip your finger in water and gently touch along the edge), fold over the filling ingredients and press edges together.
Group Recipes. We ♥ Food. Ice cream sandwich recipes The cookies The first thing you’ll need to do is decide which cookies to bake. We chose to make four different kinds of cookies: traditional chocolate chip, chewy brownie chunk, peanut butter and oatmeal chocolate chip. Bake your cookies, allow them to cool and then place them in the freezer so that they’ll be firm when it's time to squish the ice cream between them. The ice cream To make the sandwiches with homemade ice cream: Line a baking dish (or other flat dish with 1 1/2-inch sides) with plastic wrap.Make your favorite ice cream flavor in your ice cream maker or with the plastic bag method.Pour the ice cream into the bottom of your prepared pan and spread to evenly fill the pan (1/2 to 1-1/4-inch thick).Press another sheet of plastic wrap on the surface of the ice cream.Chill until very firm (ideally 24 hours or more).

Cake & Ice Cream Sandwiches When we made our yummy Cake Mix Waffles, I knew they'd be perfect for ice cream sandwiches. We got the great taste combination of cake and ice cream, but because we made our "cake" in the waffle iron, we didn't have add any more heat to our summer day by turning on the oven. They were so easy, I really don't even need to give directions, but here they are: 1. 2. 3. 4.
Would a pie by any other name taste as sweet? Yes – if it’s Apple Slab. Apple Slab. Fairly rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? I doubt anything I’ve ever baked has a less compelling name. But truth be told, it wasn’t the name that attracted me. It was an email from a reader wanting to re-create something his grandmother had made decades ago. And since I’m a complete sucker for old-time recipes, I took the bait. This reader – I remember his name was Frank, though unfortunately I’ve long since lost his email – recalled “an apple pie baked in a rectangular pan, with a thinner than normal layer of apples and a white glaze on top.” Hmmm, shouldn’t be hard to figure out. Which I did fairly easily, simply by Googling “apple pie rectangular glazed.” Kind of. So many recipes, so little time… Apple Slab had to wait its turn. Hmmm, speaking of Bienenstich – there’s another one waiting in the wings. Even when you work in the King Arthur test kitchen, there’s STILL not time to bake everything on your “sounds good” list. Yup, that was it. The result? Fold in half… Unfold. Cut.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes My ultimate weakness is a chocolate chip cookie. My friend Katie knows this and “pays” me in her famous cookies for things like taking family pictures of them or a ride to the airport. Money never tasted so good. So it didn’t surprise me that I fell in love with these cupcakes. I will warn you that they were a little work since I did it all in one day but the original recipe comes from Annie’s Eats and she said she usually splits the steps up over a couple of days. recipe update April 2013 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes Ingredients For the cupcakes: 3 sticks unsalted butter (1 1/2 cups), at room temperature 1½ cups light brown sugar 4 large eggs 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon salt 1 cup milk 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips For the filling and frosting: Instructions Preheat the oven to 350° degrees.

Crockpot French Onion Soup Since I gave you a 14 hour recipe yesterday, I figured today we’d make it a little shorter. You know… like 9 hours. But! This time you can just throw it in a big pot and forget about it. And drink beer while you’re at it. I can’t believe there was a time in my life that I didn’t think I liked onions. And even though I used to think I didn’t care for them? I still ordered french onion soup anyway. All I could think was… sign me up for that! For years after, I ordered french onion soup… and only ate the bread and cheese. I liked that set up. Then, as I’ve detailed before – much like his Diet Mountain Dew habit, my husband developed an addiction to caramelized onions and asked for them on everything. Caramely onions? After all, if there was any vegetable for me to learn to love, it had to be the one filled with sugar that softened and sweetened easily and almost tasted candy-like at times, right? So hopefully by this point I don’t have to do any convincing and we can let this cheese do the talking.
