Cookies N Creme Blossoms

 

 

I’ve been so into cookies n creme lately. I don’t know how I ever went so long without it?! This whole week is going to be full of cookies n creme. Today starts it off with Cookies N Creme Blossoms

 

oh wait, before we move on to the recipe… Don’t forget that today is the LAST day to enter to win a Swiss Diamond Pan, made with REAL Diamond Crystals!

 

I love blossom cookies. Obviously I’m referring to the peanut butter and Hershey’s kiss version, but with so many flavors of kisses these days any true cookie lover must venture out and try a few new ones. I’m not a huge chocolate cookie fan unless there is something else to break up the chocolate overload. While I know that the kisses are chocolate I love how the white chocolate lightens these cookies up.



And because I feel like gabbing a little, I heard that it’s going to be getting colder here in Utah. I know a lot of you love the snow, but let me make sure you hear my opinion… HATE IT. It’s pretty to look at. From my warm house. With blankets. And a yummy treat 😉 But, other than that, I have no need for it. I don’t ski, snowboard, or snow shoe. Therefore I don’t do snow. Just sayin’. I’m curious what you all think about winter and what your weather is like? Do tell…

 

Can A Dog Eat A Chocolate Cookie?

Chocolate can be very toxic to dogs.

The toxicity is relative to the weight of the dog and the amount of chocolate it eats.

If your dog eats one chocolate cookie, it probably won’t hurt the dog.

But, a good rule is to keep all chocolate away from dogs.

 

Can You Substitute Cocoa Powder For Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate?

To replace one ounce of unsweetened chocolate, use 3 tablespoons cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon butter, shortening or oil.

Dissolve the cocoa powder in liquid that is already in the recipe.

  1. Mine got really flat, I thought they would hold together like the peanut butter blossoms. They taste good tho.

    • Well bummer! Here are some common causes for flat cookies: the butter was too soft or partially melted, the flour was under measured or the cookie sheet was too hot. Cookies can be so temperamental!

  2. Love your cookie recipes….but do you have one without sugar ???? Or do you know what to use in place of sugar in all these recipes ? If so what and how much ?

    thanks,
