any baking ideas? cookie recipes? cakes?

i am thinking: soft chocolate chip with pecan cookies, gingerbread man, rice krispy treats, carrot cake with frosting....

i really love sweets lately! so bad for my diet, but really warms the heart!

i had haagen daaz ice cream and donuts yesterday...and today i'm really wanting to make some rice krispy treats!

funny thing, i have never made them in my life! i've always had people make them and i just eat! hehe Smile

right now i am browsing recipes for it.
here is a good one:

i tried nestle chocolate chip pecan cookies the other day, too. and oh they were so good! but very expensive at 3 cookies for $6. but they were worth every single bite!

so now i am planning to also bake that, too.

if you have any good recipes (cookies or any baked sweets), i would really appreciate it!

please post!

Cookies are the one food item I do not have in my house, ever. Common sense flees when I am faced with a plate, batch, tray or box of the things. Don't know why I have so little will power where cookies are concerned. I have no problem stopping with other sweets. But oh how I love homemade chocolate chip with walnuts.

Mmmmmm, COOKIES!! LOL, love them too. I have a recipe that my kids really like. We love chocolate but, I try to have something else too.

Donna's Strawberry Fluff

1 large container of cool whip-thawed
1 large pkg. of strawberry jell-o: straight from box
2 6-8 oz. containers of any brand strawberry yogurt
1 container (at least 1 lb.) of fresh strawberries: this can be optional
1 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese

In a large bowl combine cool whip, yogurt, and cream cheese; mix on low speed. Gradually add pkg. of jell-o. Fold in sliced strawberries. Top with additional cool whip if you'd like and chill for at least an hour before serving. NOTE: I have made this without the fresh strawberries and everyone still enjoyed it. This is great by itself or serve with cut-up vegetable and fruit (we use celery and apples). Enjoy! Very Happy

I made these yesterday - they are SO easy and so good. They really aren't brownies at all, but rather really chewy squares.

They can be made VERY quickly in an emergency = I made them for my husband to take to work for his office lunch today.

The recipe came from a bed and breakfast my parents stayed at.


4 cups crushed graham crackers (do not use the ones that are already crumbs, they are too fine. use boxed graham crackers and do them in a blender or food processor.)

12 oz package semi sweet chocolate morsels

2 cans Eagle Brand Condensed milk

Stir together all of the above ingredients. (The batter will be very thick). Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until edges are brown.

Do not overbake, or they will be "cake like" and not chewy. 15 minutes should do it.

Cool and cut into squares.

Here's another. We made a TON of these. I tripled the recipe and made up seven little bowls of cookies for neighbors and friends, and a big plate for my husband to take to work.

They are tiny - about half the size of a ping pong ball. They literally melt in your mouth and are super easy.

2 sticks of butter VERY VERY VERY VERY SOFT

1/2 CUP SUGAR

1 TSP VANILLA

2 CUPS FLOUR

6 oz CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Cream very soft butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer. Add flour. Mix with hands or spoon.

Add 6 oz chocolate chips.

Drop by tiny teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper) They do not rise or spread. You drop them into a nice little mound, smaller than a walnut. They will stay mostly in mound shape, which is what you want. You don't make them round.....

Bake 375 for 20 minutes. Watch them. They are not supposed to get brown. They stay white colored mostly.

Cool them and then pile them on a plate, like a little volcano....sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I made rice crispy treats once and made such a huge mess. I haven't tried to attempt it since. Although, I do want to try it with golden grahams and chocolate chips.

I just made the easiest pumpkin cake the other night. You take a can of pumpkin and mix it with a yellow cake mix. Do not add the water, eggs or oil. just the powder. Bake it at 350 until a fork comes clean. It took about 45 minutes altogether. I started it off at like 25 minutes and then kept adding time. Then for the glaze, take 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of apple cider and a 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Mix all that together. Then just pour all over the cake. Reserve some to pour on each peice after cut. It was so good. It was so much better the 2nd day, though.
