Chocolate Covered Strawberries & A Clever Way To Make Them



Isn't this a clever idea? Fill an ice tray with melted chocolate, put in strawberries, refrigerate until chocolate hardens. (◠‿◠)

Cookie Dough Cookie Bowls



1/4 cup butter flavored shortening
1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar

1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1½ cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Beat together shortening, butter and sugars in a large bowl; add the egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed.
Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually stir them into the batter; stir in the chocolate chips.
Put batter into a large plastic bag and flatten into a disk; chill for at least an hour. Preheat your oven to 375. Turn your cupcake (or muffin) pan upside down and cover every other one with foil.
NOTE: standard size cupcake pan requires a 4" circle of foil and the Texas size muffin pan requires a 6" circle of foil. Spray the foil with vegetable spray.
NOTE: I used the new no stick foil and didn't have to spray it at all.
Roll the chilled cookie dough (between two pieces of waxed paper) out to about 1/8th inch or about the same as pie dough. Cut circles and drape over foil, smoothing cracks together and trimming to fit.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, gently lift them off of the pan (use the tip of a butter knife to lift one corner first) but don't remove the foil until the cookie bowl is completely cool. Fill just before serving.

Cute Idea When Making Cookies



Cut out rounds of cookie dough and add a pattern to them !! just use the bottom of a fancy glass !! simply dip the glass in some flour, then press the glass into the cookie dough to create an imprint. use a pastry brush to remove the excess flour from the cookie.
