These cookies ‘n cream snowman pops will cheer up even the snowiest day! This post was sponsored by Betty Crocker. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep me inspired in the kitchen. I don’t usually “do” cute food, but how adorable are these snowman cookie pops?! I think I might be spending too much time […]
Soft, chewy snickerdoodle cookies are stuffed with an apple cheesecake filling. The past few weeks have been a complete whirlwind for me. On top of general craziness, I spent a few days in Minneapolis at the Betty Crocker headquarters with Gold Medal Flour, then I scooted off to New York City for the Wine and […]
Way back this spring, I was asked to create a few recipes using some new Betty Crocker/Hershey’s mixes. I’ve been waiting pretty impatiently to be able to share them with you. Do you know how terrible it is to make something this good but have to keep the recipe to myself for months? Almost as bad as waiting for the mixes to start appearing on store shelves so I can make them again myself. They’re out now though, so phew!
Because these cookies? It’s honestly a little embarrassing how quickly the two of us polished off the whole batch. I’m not sure they even lasted 24 hours.
We had a dark, rainy day earlier this week that left me wanting nothing more than to curl up with a big mug of tea and honey. There’s something so cozy and comforting about those flavors together. I’m not quite ready to make the switch back to warm beverages though – I’m still firmly in summer mode – so I came home and whipped up this light, fluffy buttercream instead.
Tea and honey buttercream. I’m not sure why it’s taken me 30 years to come up with that idea, but it’s DELICIOUS! I sandwiches mine between oatmeal cookies that came in my last shipment from Walkers (how cute are those little minis?!) for the perfect little sweet bites.
Hot and Sour. Sweet and Salty. Creamy and Crunchy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about various flavors and textures and how they’ll work together. Cooking is a lot like art: colors that are next to each other are pretty and soothing; flavors that are close to each other work together, but can be bland. Contrasting colors (across from each other on the wheel) give a big intense, impact; contrasting flavors give a recipe its “wow factor.” It’s why bacon goes so well with chocolate and pineapple’s so delicious in spicy curry.
