I love to bake, and I was very excited when the folks at Pillsbury sent me a box of baking supplies, complete with Watkins Vanilla, Pillsbury Flour, Reynolds cupcake liners, foil, parchment paper, and more!  In conjunction with the Pillsbury Bake-Off, and the celebration of spring, I decided to make some White Chocolate Chip Pink Lemonade Bars!

These bars are sweet and delicious!  Their lemon flavor and lovely pink color make them a perfect spring treat, and they are also very easy to make, using just a few ingredients, including Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Cake Mix!  Hope you enjoy! [Read more...]

Candy Filled Cookie Cups

Candy Filled Cookie Cups

 

I love break & bake cookie dough!  As if, ready made cookie dough wasn’t enough of a short cut, the break and bake kind take out all the cutting and measuring-guess work.  Today we’re getting a little creative with our cookie dough, by placing an extra special treat inside!

These Candy Filled Cookie Cups can be made with any kind of cookie dough you choose.  Here we obviously chose chocolate chip, but if you like peanut butter, sugar, or even snicker doodles, they would be perfect as well.  And what’s the filling, you ask?  Mini candy bars, of course!  Just think of all the possible flavor combinations!

Serve these as a fun after school treat, or get the kids involved, by letting them pick their favorite “recipe combinations.”  They will have a blast! [Read more...]

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

An internet outage has me running late this week!  Eek!  But I suppose it’s never too late for cookies!

This week I’m sharing my recipe for White Chocolate Chip Cookies!  While I must admit, the plain chocolate chip cookie holds a very special place in my heart and is probably my favorite cookie, every now and then I like to change it up with some white chocolate.

These won’t last long, so you might want to make an extra batch! Hope you enjoy!
