Cookie Dough for Preggies!

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. 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.

Fake Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes Ever have one of those "Ah-ha!" moments? I happened to me yesterday when I was lamenting the price of those very convenient Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes. I remember when they used to only cost $1.00 each in Walmart and now they're $2.50 each! Anyway, I usually just tell myself that I can make cookies from scratch anytime with the plentiful ingredients of my pantry, but then it came to me...Why can't I make cookie pre-mixes and keep them in ziplock bags for use at my convenience? So, I've come up with recipes for four of my family's favorite Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes. Fake Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookies: 1 Cup Flour 1/4 Cup White Sugar 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Salt 3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips Mix together and store in a quart size ziplock bag. Fake Betty Crocker Sugar Cookies: 1 1/2 Cups Flour 3/4 Cup White Sugar 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Salt Mix together and store in a quart size ziplock bag.

My FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie I have experimented with countless recipes searching for that perfect chocolate chip cookie. The characteristics of the perfect cookie are a very personal matter, and here are my preferences: texture: chewy w. medium thickness --- everyone has their preference, and this is mine! chocolate to cookie ratio: 50/50 --- I really enjoy having a lot of chocolate in every bite chips vs. chunks: chunks --- I like sizeable pieces of chocolate in my cookie. type of chocolate: bittersweet --- I like using Valrhona 61% extra bitter nuts or other add-ins: NONE!! With the above criteria in mind, this recipe is the closest I've come to experiencing CCC perfection. - Don't substitute the pastry and bread flours w. - Hand chopped chocolate chunks, NOT premade chips - I will purchase a hunk of the best bittersweet chocolate that I can afford and hand cut them into chunks. - Chill the cookie dough at least 24 hours (I let my dough sit anywhere from 2-3 days) before baking.

M&M Cookie Pie I wish I could say that I was away on some terrific adventure, or that I have been so inspired to create magical dishes that I have been too busy in the kitchen with a knife in one hand and a spatula in the other to blog anything.... but, no. I have been just busy with life-things. Adult things, really. Like going to work and being super busy everyday, apartment hunting (which may be as much fun as bra shopping- ack), and thinking a lot about packing, cleaning, and making a giant Goodwill donation trip- but not actually doing any of it.Oh, I'm getting stressed just thinking about it.Cookie pie, anyone? Part of my birthday package from my mother last month included a large stack of mail, and a container of M&M's shaped like the great state of Texas.Awesome.I wanted to make cookies, but I didn't want to make cookies. Preheat oven to 325* Cream butter and sugar. *FAQ's*- "No white sugar?"

I hope you have chocolate chips handy They’re cookies. They’re brownies. They’re brookies. Whatever you want to call them they’re good. They combine the taste of a chocolate chip cookie and with the texture of a moist brownie. Well, I had them for the first time the other day. Sometimes I wonder where I’ve been and how I could have gone this long without tasting easy treats like this. Here’s all the ingredients. If you follow the directions in the recipe, you combine everything by hand, but I decided to use my mixer and let it do all the work. Look at that beautifully thick batter. Spread it all out in a 13 X 9 pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Cool and cut. These are from the first batch. These are from the second batch and slightly… just slightly, more cakey when you sink your teeth in. At first I thought it was just a difference in baking time, but Lori also made a batch using a mixer without knowing that was how I made mine and both of ours came out the same. She likes the mixing by hand method better, too. M&M’s maybe.

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies Who doesn't love chocolate and cream cheese and cookies? Okay, if you just answered with "not me" then I don't think we can be friends. Seriously.

I won't tell if you won't.

They are totally worth it. OH!

Recipe for Sugar Cookies Oct 3 Welcome to Unsophisticook! I'm always cooking up something new, so be sure to subscribe to the blog to receive FREE updates sent right to your inbox. While my favorite cookie is one of these chocolate crinkle cookies, every cook should have a good recipe for sugar cookies in his or her repertoire. This particular recipe produces a cookie that is a standout on its own, with a buttery, just-sweet-enough flavor. Give it a light dusting of granulated sugar and enjoy their tender yet chewy texture as is. Or it's also the perfect base recipe for cut-out cookies since it holds its shape well and doesn't have a lot of rise while baking, giving you a nice flat surface to work with while decorating. While this sugar cookie dough can be a bit on the sticky side, chilling it well should solve any issues when working with it. Just scoop out the dough and roll it into a smooth ball. Then use a flat-bottomed ramekin or glass to flatten each cookie to about 1/2-inch thick. Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies

My alarm goes off every day for work at 5 a.m. and I dream about the weekend when I get to wake up naturally and sleep past nine. Of course, once I wake up and realize I have lots of errands to run, lessons to write, and cookies to bake, the guilt kicks in.
