Super Mario Mushroom Cookies (Snack or Die - Video Game Cookies)

Super Mario Mushroom Cookies (Snack or Die - Video Game Cookies)
A bit of pound cake with a brightly iced cookie top. These cookies are the same size as a mushroom, but taste better and are cuter to boot. Ingredients for making the mushrooms: 1 cup butter (two sticks) 1/2 cup pecans (walnuts or hazelnuts work as well) 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt Pound cake (a frozen loaf is fine) Black decorator's gel Red and green food coloring White frosting or white fondant Ingredients for Royal Icing: 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 egg white The cookies are a slightly less sweet version of the cookie used in the Koopa Shell Cookie. As with all things involving royal icing, there will be long drying times. To start off the cookies, beat together the softened butter and sugar until the mixture is fluffy and looks like mayo. Add the vanilla extract. Mix in the salt and flour until everything is well combined. Add the pecans (or whatever nut suits your fancy) and stir. Whew! Related:  Galletas

Watermelon Cookies 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, a website I used to own, several years ago. I did adapt the recipe a little bit over the years though. 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 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted 2-3 tablespoons milk green paste food coloring OR 15-20 drops green food coloring Instructions For the Glaze

Lemon Sugar Cookie Recipe Lemon Sugar Cookies I love all kinds of cookies, but traditional sugar cookies with frosting have never been my favorite. I am just not a frosting gal. (I am sure if you put a frosted sugar cookie in front of me, I would eat it, but they just aren’t my favorite.) I do adore Lemon Sugar Cookies-they are soft, chewy, and rolled in sugar. These cookies are simple, elegant, and perfect for spring. The recipe includes lemon zest and fresh lemon juice so the cookies have a delightful lemon flavor. Ring in spring with a batch of Lemon Sugar Cookies. Make sure you enter our giveaway to win a copy of Our Best Bites cookbook.

Chocolate Lovers’ Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies - Cook Like James Chocolate Lovers’ Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies These chewy fudgy chocolate cookies from Cook's Country will satisfy any chocolate lover who craves a brownie in cookie form. I use Callebaut chocolate, but Ghirardelli is also a fine choice. Three types of chocolate combine to deliver a deep dark rich chocolate cookie. The key to the fudgy texture of these cookies is letting them cool directly on the baking sheets.

Rolo Cookies Rolo Cookies We don’t buy candy very often, but when we do it is usually not to snack on, it is to bake with. Last week I bought Rolo candies to make Rolo Pretzels with Pretzel M&M’s.

If you want to create an extra sweet treat, try these chocolate cookies with a Rolo candy center.

Homemade Girl Scout Cookies: Thin Mints Thin Mints are the Girl Scouts’ best selling cookies – although Samoas, Do-si-dos and Tagalongs have their fans, too – when they have their annual cookie sale. Even though they’re a wonderfully tasty combination of mint, chocolate and crispiness, there are a couple of good reasons not to buy them no matter how tempting they seem. First, only a small portion of the cookie sales go to the troops, and as the prices rise, the cookies themselves shrink. I’d rather donate to my local chapter and know where the money is going. I’d much rather make my own. Once baked, they are dipped into a dark chocolate coating. The cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for several days, but like “real” Girl Scout cookies, they taste great when frozen and will last for weeks – if not longer – in the freezer. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder and salt. Dark Chocolate Coating 10-oz dark or semisweet chocolate 1/2 cup butter, room temperature

Homemade Oreos Lately, my husband has been getting me into a bit of trouble. You see, he’s my taste tester. He’s not afraid to tell me when something I make is awful (it has happened before… believe me!), so I know he’ll give me an honest opinion. A few times lately (including yesterday when I was working on this particular recipe), he has raved on Facebook about what I made for him. In this case, the homemade oreos that my hubby was taunting his friends with on Facebook were already spoken for… Most of the cookies were destined for the cafe at our church. These homemade oreos are easy to make. Homemade Oreos(Makes approximately 3 dozen) For the cookies: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened1 cup granulated sugar1 egg1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract2 cups all purpose flour3/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder1 teaspoon salt For the filling: Begin by preparing the cookies. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
