My recipes and I can now be found @
I have been busy in the kitchen creating a wide variety of Holiday recipes from Thanksgiving dishes, Breakfasts for a crowd and of course Christmas cookies! These cookies turned out wonderfully and my family truly enjoyed all of them. These cookies were all extremely popular when I posted the pictures on facebook and people were begging for the recipes and so I am posting them here on the blog.
I was actually SHOCKED when my husband called the Almond Vanilla Bon Bon cookies:
Chocolate Heaven and said he'd rather eat these than chocolate chip cookies any day!
To a normal person that may not seem like a big deal, but my husband is a Chocolate Chip Cookie Monster through and through! Nobody messes with his chocolate chip cookies, they have been his favorite dessert for most of the 20 years of I have known him other than maybe a few chocolate cheesecakes that have really won him over so I was very happy with the result of these little cookies!!
I have to admit that I struggle with my addiction to sugar, I know I need to quit eating the stuff and I've come a long way using more brown rice syrup, stevia and natural sweeteners but even still, too much is too much. However, over the holidays I just enjoy baking and have a wonderful time creating in the kitchen and I just have absolutely no desire to give up on enjoying some of my Christmas candies and cookies!
My kids had so much fun decorating the little gingerbread bears we made!!!
Hubby was on my Naughty list that night though!
I was busy mixing up this wonderful batch of rich, dark gingerbread and asked him to pick up a few things from the store....including a gingerbread man cookie cutter! So what happens, 10 minutes later when he gets to the store......He Forgets! Seriously? Here I am with this beautiful gingerbread cookie dough and no cookie cutter!
We had to improvise......hearts and cupids....nope......leaves and acorns......not gonna work!!
I do have candy canes and an angel, however the angel has such tiny sections that the cookie dough always tears and they look terrible! So we finally settled on the teddy bear! They were little cookies but they were yummy and very cute!
What can I say about chocolate crinkle cookies, they are just YUMMY! They are my daughters favorite so she was thrilled the night I made them. I made a small recipe though so there weren't many to go around. Since I have been making desserts every night I figured I needed to make SMALL batches so nobody end up on a binging frenzy and ends up with a tummy ache!
*** I cannot find the gingerbread recipe!!! If you want the recipe I will post it as soon as I find it, just post in the comments below to let me know if you want it. Thanks.
Gingerbread Cookie Recipe Found!!!
This little cookies are very DARK and RICH gingerbread, the flavor is NOT light so be aware of that. If you want you can reduce the spices if you like more bland gingerbread. My kids LOVED these and they have sensitive palates.
Delicious! Dark and rich
