Chocolate chip cookie cups!

Hey guys! Are you ready for the school year to start back up? Maybe I’ll do a back to school post or something. 🙂 I think I’m going to home school this year, and I’m really excited that I won’t have to get up at 6 every morning to get ready (though I know some home-schoolers like to) Also, homeschooling will be a big plus for my blog too, I’m trying to see if blogging could count as one of my electives, like maybe blogging could count as my computer class (I know I’ve gotten a LOT faster at typing since February when I started my blog 🙂 )  Crunchy chocolate chip cookie cups, the insides coated with chocolate, and filled with milk!

Today’s post is: chocolate chip cookie cups! I’ve been wanting to try these for the longest time! I’m surprised that I actually squeezed the time in to do it, we are remodeling and we just got the kitchen ripped out and they are building the new one. (luckily I made these right before they tore it out) They turned out pretty good! (one or two leaked, but you just have to make sure they get plenty of chocolate coating on the inside and they will be perfect!)Crunchy chocolate chip cookie cups, the insides coated with chocolate, and filled with milk! 

So, how these work is, you make the chocolate chip cookie dough, and you cook it inside this special pan (I found mine at Michael’s in the baking isle) or the bottom of a extra-deep muffin tin. Once they are cooled, you coat the insides with several layers of melted chocolate and let that dry, ( you can also dip the rims in it to make it extra yummy). Then, you fill them with milk, ice cream, or whatever you want! Continue Reading →

Soft & yummy sugar cookies!

Hi guys! Don’t you just love sugar cookies, I love them, and sadly, I can’t eat them (I have to do the fodmap diet, till’ like december) They have wheat and dairy in them, but they are a great gift!! I love this recipe because they are super simple, you don’t have to refrigerate the dough or anything! I found this wonderful recipe on  itsalwaysautumn.com and I love it! They taste great and are just as fun to make!Soft, yummy sugar cookies with delicious cream cheese frosting!

I mean, who doesn’t love sugar cookies with classic pink frosting! Two people I know had birthdays this week, so I gave them each some!

I tried a different recipe before this one and it was a disaster! The dough was much too sticky and wouldn’t cut out! This recipe is so much better! A big thanks to It’s always autumn for this recipe! My favorite picture by far is this one! I love our vintage measuring spoons!Soft and yummy sugar cookies topped with pink cream cheese frosting!
Here are a couple of tips for making these cookies turn out perfect: Continue Reading →

Gluten free chocolate chip cookies

Aren’t I great at posting consistently?! 🙂 I’m so sorry I missed this last week, I’ve been sick, It was the last week of school, and I had a friend staying with me! I was going to post these cookies yesterday, but we were gone all day! At least I’m posting today! So, lately (like I mentioned in this post) I have been having to do the fodmap diet to heal up my stomach. On the fodmap diet there are practically no treats! The fodmap diet is no dairy, no wheat, defiantly no corn syrup and some fruits and vegetables (though there are a couple dairy’s I can eat) So, yesterday these gluten free chocolate chip cookies were born!

These cookies are so good! And, I don’t have to feel guilty eating them! Delicious gluten free chocolate chip cookies

These did originally  have flour in them, so what I did was use a gluten free flour blend from Costco.Delicious gluten free chocolate chip cookies

Usually, these turn out kinda flat, but with the gluten free flour they turned out fluffy, which was fine with me!

Subway copycat white chocolate chip macadamia cookies

So, one of my favorite places to eat out is Subway! I LOVE their sandwiches! I always get either ham or turkey on white bread, with lettuce, olives, tomatoes, Swiss cheese, and LOTS of vinegar. And,  sometimes I get a cookie. 🙂 These are my favorite, so when I made this recipe I was delighted! Subway copycat white chocolate chip macadamia cookies

This recipe is the best! I found it on subwayathome.blogspot.com. These bake pretty good, and the batch makes about 4 dozen. BUT just warning you, these don’t do very well if you store them in the fridge over night, and then bake them. You want to bake them all at the same time.

I just can’t stop saying how much I love these! Whats your favorite type of cookie? This is DEFINITELY mine! They have been my favorite for years!

So guys, I know I missed teacher appreciation week. It really snuck up on me this year! Part of the reason was that I missed school the week before, when they told every one, and this last Monday I was sick. 🙁 So sorry, I will try to get it next year. 🙂
