Two things before I hit you up with some food porn, and some recipes.
1. My $25 gift card giveaway to EdenFantasys is still going on- it ends Tuesday. Enter even if it scares the shit out of you.
2. Whoopsy-- I forgot that I did a Self Esteem Saturday post with Jia. You can go HERE to see it. (Dear Helena, I'm wearing the underwear you gave me. And yes- you can see them.)
Ok. So who's hungry? I'm not bitches because I've been taste testing my goodies all day.
Which sounds really disgusting and I don't mean it that way at all.
Ok. So I made basic sugar cookies. Which this is the FIRST year they weren't a FAIL. Usually I burn them... or the consistency isn't the way I want... but this year? I fucking owned those whores. What I didn't own was my decorating gel. Which had wide tips so I couldn't do much for decorated. Boo. I made 3 dozen and we're down to four cookies total so they tasted good.
So. You need one 8oz package of cream cheese that is ROOM TEMPERATURE. If you don't do this you will make your life hellish. Then you need one box of Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate, so it's like 8 of those squares.
Put 'em back in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to harden again. And then melt more chocolate. You can either use another box of Baker's chocolate.. or you can use chocolate candy melts. I used those because I needed my Baker's for something else. Melt your chocolate, grab your balls and get a fork. ;)
Put one ball into the melted chocolate, use your fork to roll them around so they get coated all over. Then use your fork to get them out and back onto the cookie sheet. Repeat for all balls. (If you use the candy melts they will harden almost immediately once on the cookie sheet.)
Oh- and then I made ghetto spritz for Matt. They are his favorite and I hate making them because my cookie press is not made for someones who's hand are basically useless as far as strength. But I say ghetto because I use a tube of premade sugar cookie dough, add a 1/2 cup of flour to it, knead it really well so it's mixed. Add 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract, a whole shit load of green food coloring and there you go. Spritz ala ghetto.
So that was my weekend. I am off almost every day for the next two weeks so be ready for me getting my crafty and Betty Crocker on. Yee haw baby.
What cookies do you like for the holidays or what do you consider a must have?
