Homemade Brussels Cookies


Rob has been begging me for years to try my hand at making homemade Brussels cookies, I've always been intimidated by the delicate cookies, assuming they'd be difficult to make. But, when I googled a recipe I was shocked that they didn't seem too hard. And believe me, they weren't! The hardest part was scooping out the dough one tiny teaspoon at a time.

I was also shocked at how much these tasted like store-bought Brussels. Delicate, rich, delicious!!

Aside from Oat Bran, the ingredient list is all pantry staples, and it's not like Oat Bran is hard to find! Just not something I normally have laying around. Once I finally remembered to buy some, I had to make up some cookies!

Homemade Brussels Cookies
Ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons honey
7 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons milk
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oat bran
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces dark or semi-sweet chocolate

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 325* and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper

In a bowl, cream the butter, sugar and honey until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and milk.

Sift together the flour, oat bran, baking powder and salt. Mix the dry ingredients in to the butter and sugar on low until well blended.

Scoop 1 teaspoon rounds and place on the prepared sheets. Leave at least 3 inches between cookies as they WILL spread! Bake for 10-14 minutes, until the cookies are golden around the edges.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute. Carefully remove to a wire rack and cool completely. They will flatten as they cool.

When ready to assemble, warm the chocolate in your microwave on in a double boiler (or about an inch of simmering water in a saucepan, topped with a metal bowl. Once the chocolate is melted, spread evenly over the flat half of the cookies, topping with the other half of the cookies to get sandwiches! Allow to cool before eating.

  3. Hey just a quick note to say that your recipe says "white whole wheat bread" instead of "white whole wheat flour". :)

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
