This is how I stagger my cookies

When ready to bake – preheat oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper, stagger cookies on a sheet. I fit 7 to a sheet. They do spread a little. Bake 15 to 18 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Brownie stuffed sugar cookies

I made some brownies and didn’t want to bring in “just brownies” to work, so I decided to stuff most of them in sugar cookies. I say most because I ran out of cookie dough, so a few “just brownies” will arrive with me tomorrow morning.

Didn’t do a good job of covering the brownie 😀

Reminders – scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • One pan of brownies, baked, cooled and cut in squares
  • 14 tbs butter softened
  • 2 tbs crisco
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream butter, crisco, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough. Divide in half. Flatten one half. Place a brownie square on top. Flatten other half and place on top of brownie square. Completely cover brownie with dough. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. I fit 8 on a sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. (Lightly golden on bottom) cool completely. Store in covered container.

This is how I stagger cookies on a sheet so they don’t spread into each other

Thank you for stopping by today. I wish you a wonderful day filled with peace, love and happiness. Remember to be kind. Your kindness might be just what someone needs in their day.

Hot cocoa brownies

We spent this snowy Saturday shovelling, letting Gracie in and out approximately one million times, and watching hockey. Rob requested hostess cupcakes,so I did a little tweak – hot cocoa brownies, with hostess filling, chocolate ganache and a squiggle. The squiggle is never my forte. You can say the same for my decorating and picturing taking.

Oreo brownie cookies with chocolate ganache

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

A reminder to scoop your flour from your flour bag into you measuring cup. Also,form your dough into high mounds and chill these overnight. And,preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temp for baking

Still trying to use up my extra large box of Oreos,so I decided to finely crush them up, toss them in my brownie mix cookies. Then frost them with chocolate ganache (a fancy name for melted chocolate) and top with more finely crushed Oreos. These came out a little flatter than I prefer, so I may add a little more flour and a tbs of cornstarch next time to see if that helps them stay puffier.

😋

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbs water
  • 3 /4 cup finely crushed oreos

Directions – combine brownie mix, flour, vegetable oil, eggs, and water. Blend in crushed Oreos. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dpugh. chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completley.

  • Ganache ingredients
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl,heat both types of chips for one minute. Set aside. In another microwave safe bowl, heat cream for one minute. Pour over chips, let set 10 minutes. Stir smooth. Frost completely cooled cookies. Top with crushed Oreos. Store in covered container.

I went a little crazy with the ganache!

Big game for the Bills – against the Titans on Monday Night Football. So I upped my treat game -a mini Oreo stuffes inside a sugar cookie stuffed inside a brownie, with a chocolate blobby of frosting on top., why the frosting? I do not know.

Double chocolate, triple chip brownies

Double chocolate, triple chip brownies topped with powdered sugar

These brownies, dear friends, are one of the first treats I remember making my myself. They are an old Nestle tollhouse standby. I actually meased it up by melting 2 cups of chocolate chips instead of one, but I have never gotten any complaints, so I stuck with that “mistake”. Rob wanted me to add a combo of white, milk chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips, so I did. These aren’t super fudgy, but not cakey either. I think you will like them.

All that chocolate!
