First, let me say that I'm not a gourmet chef. I don't even LOVE cooking-baking is a different story. However, necessity often brings me to the kitchen to cook a meal. And I do love a tried and true recipe. So, here is a collection of recipes I've gathered from friends and the interwebs. These have helped me to enjoy my time in the kitchen a bit more! I hope it will help you, too!
I'm a part of a great book club. We meet at a local coffee shop called Book Bums. While discussing our latest book, we usually get some tasty drink and enjoy some of the baked goods that they sell. Several months ago, I tried their little bag of sugar cookie bites. They have a name, but I can't remember what it is. What I do know is that these little cookies are delicious. I have spent many hours trying to recreate them. I haven't quite perfected the frosting, but I think the cookies are pretty darn close! Here's my knock-off recipe:
