Well the pin I found is perfect for those moments when you would kill for a fresh cookie but don’t have the time for a full batch of cookies!

Tips

#1: Start with 40 second then if not done put in for 20 seconds more. I put it in for 60 seconds right away and while it was very good it was a tad overdone and crumbly because it was cooked a tad to long.

#2: I used farm fresh eggs that I get from a co worker and they have dark gold yolks which make baked good look almost neon. So your batter will not be as yellow as mine so do not be worried!

#3 This is very rich so you can split into 2 pieces and top with vanilla ice cream to make a delicious treat!

This was the fastest cookie I have ever made and it was so delicious! It made a lot and my daughter and I were able to share it since it was so rich. It hit the spot nicely and I will be making this again!

Oreo Cookie Balls

So now that life has settled down following the holidays and my boyfriend’s surgery I can finally relax and post about all the yummy treats I made! One things I made is Oreo Cookie Balls…they are easy to make and very yummy!

Ingriedients:

1 package Oreos

1package Cream Cheese

Ingredients

Ingredients

All you do is put the whole package of Oreo cookies into a food processor and crush until there are fine crumbs.

Then you add the room temperature cream cheese to the processed Oreo cookies and form into a soft dough.

Then you form the mixture into round balls about bite size and place on a cookie sheet. Then place into a freezer until they are solid and ready to dip.

Formed into balls and ready to cool.

Once the balls are frozen melt chocolate in a bowl, I used white chocolate chips, until smooth. You can use any kind of chocolate or almond bark for this step.

Once the chocolate is melted enough to be creamy and smooth you dip the balls into it until fully covered. Then you place them on wax or parchment paper to dry.

Tips From Me:

#1 When I first made this with my mom they didn’t coat very well the first time so once they hardened I dipped them a second tim to cover any  holes.

#2 These can be made with any flavor of Oreo cookies! These are really rich on their own and the added flavor will add to the richness. My sister once made some with mint Oreo cookies and they were divine but very rich and I couldn’t manage to eat more then half at a time!

#3 If the almond bark is clumpy and doesn’t coat well add a bit of shortening to it and reheat. This should help thin it out a bit to make it easier to coat with.

I love making these because they are so simple if you ever need a quick dish for a party, potluck, or unexpected guests this is a go to recipe!

Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies!

Ok so I heard about this thing called chocolate chip brownie cookes and I thought “OMG that must be heaven on a plate! It’s almost to good to be true!!” then I did some searching on Pinterest, I had to type it in just like it is on the title because “brownie cookies” gets you a bazillion ways to use a brownie mix to make cookies, and I found them!

Now while I did pin a recipe I only used it for the basic guidelines: temp and time to bake.

The pin:  http://pinchofyum.com/chocolate-chip-cookie-brownies

Now how I made them was like this:

Ingredients

Brownie mix and chocolate chip cookie dough.

Brownie mix and chocolate chip cookie dough.

Now to make the cookie dough I simply followed the Nestle toll house recipe. After this I mixed up the brownies according to the instructions on the box. After that I took a cake pan, the pin used a smaller square pan for thicker ones. But mine after baking filled the whole pan, and spread the brownie batter around.

Then I used my cookie scooper to put the cookie dough right on top of the brownie dough and finally I took a spatula and smoothed the cookie dough around a bit.

Ready to bake!

Bake in the over on 350 degrees for 40 minutes then cool and enjoy!

Tips by me:

#1 When they came out and I scooped out the first piece I noticed that there was more cookie then brownies, unlike in the original pin. So I decided that next time I will put half the cookie dough on top and bake the rest as cookies!

#2 If you like gooey brownies or cookies then bake for 35 minutes. If you like them fully baked then cook until a knife or toothpick comes out clean after being inserted into the center.

#3 To make it even easier (for time crunched people) get a packaged cookie mix along with the brownie mix. Follow all instructions on both mixes, layer then bake!

#4 Don’t be alarmed at how brown the cookies are on top but if your cookie part is done before the brownies (insert toothpick all the way to the bottom of your pan to see if the brownies are still undercooked) then cover the dish with tin foil to keep the cookies from burning.

These were super easy to make and sinfully delicious! This was definitely a hit with my family and I doubt they will let me bake regular cookies or brownies ever again!
