Homemade versions of Girl Scout cookies I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house. I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly. But, I have many friends with daughters in the Girl Scouts, and the Thin Mints are just so yummy. My 7-year-old didn’t even realize there was any other flavor of Girl Scout cookies than Thin Mints. When one of my friends asked him what kind of cookies he wanted to buy from his daughter he said, “You know. One reason that Girl Scout cookies hold such a spell over many people is that they are only available for a limited time.

Watermelon Cookies ~ Recipes by Amanda's Cookin If you need a fun and colorful dessert for a picnic or cookout, try these delicious watermelon cookies! This is a simple sugar cookie dough that’s been dotted with miniature chocolate chips, then rolled in a colored glaze to finish them off. I’ve actually made these many times and published them on Familycorner.com, a website I used to own, several years ago. I did adapt the recipe a little bit over the years though. I made them again just the other day and they were polished off in no time. Here’s the step by step instructions. Just a quick note. Cut out circles with a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Use a dough scraper or a sharp knife to cut each circle in half. Gently press miniature semi sweet morsels into each semicircle. Bake for 6-8 minutes, checking after 6 minutes (mine were perfect in 7 minutes). Place cookies on cooling racks, excess glaze will drip through onto the wax paper. Ingredients Sugar Cookie Dough Plus 1 cup miniature semi sweet morsels Glaze Instructions For the Glaze

Pulse about 8 graham crackers in a blender or food processor to get your graham cracker crumbs. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and graham cracker crumbs.

Press half of the dough down into the greased and/or lined 8×8 pan (I doubled it and did a 9×13). Lay the chocolate bars over the dough. Then spread the Fluff over the chocolate. Press the remaining into sheet with your palms and lay the sheets over the marshmallow (as shown). Enjoy!

This recipe is adapted from a cookie recipe I found over at FoodNetwork.com. I made the cookies and they tasted great, but they just didn’t have much visual appeal. So I thought I’d make them into bars instead, and I like them much better this way! I also added chopped walnuts and eliminated the cloves that the original recipe calls for. I recommend using Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips in this recipe because they’re a bigger size than other brands and they’re so smooth and creamy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars There is a deli near my house that makes the most amazing chocolate peanut butter bars. I have been trying to come up with a copycat version of them for some time & this recipe is pretty much it. I thought they would be a great dessert to make for the bake sale, as chocolate/peanut butter desserts are very popular & these are super simple & don't require any baking! To begin, grease a standard sized brownie pan with non-stick cooking spray & line the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang {for easy removal}. 2 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar, a 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter, & 1 3/4 cups of smooth peanut butter. Beat until smooth, then dump the mixture out into the pan, and press down into the bottom, making it as level as possible. 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, and 8 ounces of bittersweet chocolate {chopped} in a double boiler, or heat-proof bowl set over simmering water. Stir occasionally to combine.

GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND BAKE!: PASTRY Last night, I decided to make one of my favorite cookies. These little pastry swirls are so delish! I usually use my favorite pie crust recipe, which I have previously posted, but I decided to try a pastry recipe by the Barefoot Contessa. This recipe calls for lots of butter! Pastry: 2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup granulated or superfine sugar 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 1/2 pound (2 sticks) COLD unsalted butter, diced Directions: Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Divide your dough into two equal parts. Keep one half covered in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator. About 1/8" thick I still have some rolling to do! You can use any jam or preserves that you like. I used Strawberry Huckleberry jam. Don't use too much, or it will be difficult to roll, but don't be stingy either! Roll up jelly roll style. Don't roll too tightly, or all the jelly will roll right on out! Be generous!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies I’m betting that many of you have felt my adoration for fall in my recent posts and I am also guessing that many of you feel the same way. I mean really, what’s not to love about fall baking? If you are not as pumped about fall baking as I am, these incredible Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies will make you a fall baking lover in no time. Using canned pumpkin excites me the most about fall baking, so you can imagine my utter dismay when I learned that there is possibly another pumpkin shortage this year. Luckily I am randomly frugal and picked up a stockpile of canned pumpkin that was on sale last year after Thanksgiving. Yes, I said randomly frugal, meaning I have no qualms about shelling out the big bucks for fabulous boots and bags, but I clip coupons and refuse to pay over a dollar for toothpaste or shaving cream. After hearing of people hawking canned pumpkin on EBay, I decided to do a little research. This Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie recipe is simple and really packs some amazing pumpkin flavor.

Almond Chocolate Toffee Brittle Recipe | Cookie Recipes A few Christmas’ ago, my sister was telling me about these cookies she made for a cookie exchange using saltine crackers.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many. The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb - the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. Notes for flaming strawberries:Any alcohol below 80 proof will not ignite well. Shaina made a margarita version of this on Babble Food. Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Yield: About 20 cupcakes [click to print]Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
