Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss!

I saw this idea for cookies on The Souders website, and knew they were so cute I just had to try them! I used my own homemade sugar cookie recipe, and I did use a different technique thank they did. Their technique would of actually been a lot easier than how I made mine:)
I think they were very cute to say Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss!

Krispy Kreme Copycat Recipe

Yesterday I saw this recipe and knew I couldn't resist trying it. We love Krispy Kreme's and only get them once a year, when we are on vacation. Last year we forgot!

These were very easy to make. The recipe went quickly. I started it in the beginning of the Patriots game, and they were done by the end of the game. They did taste a lot like Krispy Kremes. Not perfect, but very close. The dough is a very light dough, not too sweet.

If you would like to try for yourselves, here is where I found the recipe:

S'mores in a Jar ~ Deliciousness!

S’mores Cake in a Jar

makes 4 16-ounce mason jar cakes

for crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/2 stick butter

pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter and mix in graham crumbs and salt. Mix until moistened. Spray 4 mason jars with non-stick spray and press graham crust into jars. I began by adding a tablespoon to each, and repeating until graham crumbs were gone. They don’t need to look perfect. Press down.

for cake:

1 1/8 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup dark cocoa powder

1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 tablespoons sour cream

for topping:

1 bag of large marshmallows

In a bowl, whisk egg and sugar until smooth and no lumps remain. Add milk, cream, butter and vanilla, and mix until combined. Stir in sour cream. Sift dry ingredients together and add to wet mixture. Mix until batter is smooth. Using a 1/4 cup measure, add batter to mason jars one scoop at a time. You only want to fill them up about half way, and the batter should work evenly for 4 jars. Again – don’t worry if it is perfect. Place mason jars in a baking dish and add about 1 1/2 cups of water to the bottom. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cake is set.

Remove cake from the oven and press large marshmallows down on top, being careful not to burn yourself. There is no set number of marshmallows to use, I pressed down as many as I could, about 4-5 each. Heat the broiler on your oven and watching carefully, brown marshmallows for about 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Do not take your eyes off them! Serve immediately.

Sweet Treats ~ Doubled Up

When I was in elementary school I would of loved to trade my cookies once in awhile for some "store bought" cookies. I was blessed to usually have homemade things, and you don't really appreciate it when you are that age.
This cookie combines the best of both worlds ~ A homemade chocolate chip cookie with an oreo cookie inside.
