The 250 Best Cookie Recipes

Who doesn’t like cookies? I know I have to do a lot of baking for the kids schools (bake sales, Gameathon, Santa’s Workshop, etc.), and cookies also go over well. Plus cookies are great for coffee breaks, snacks, and desserts. In The 250 Best Cookie Recipes, there are over 250 cookie recipes to pick from. There is literally something for everyone in there. The majority of the recipes can be done by even the most novice baker. The recipes are also broken down, so they are easy to find: Drop Cookies, Hand Shaped Cookies, Sliced Cookies, Biscotti, Sandwich Cookies, No Bake Cookies, and Holiday Cookies. There are also helpful baking tips sprinkled throughout the book. The book even goes over the correct way to melt chocolate, storage methods, and even has a troubleshooting section!

I highly recommend The 250 Best Cookie Recipes!

Holstein Housewares Pound Cake Maker Giveaway and A Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe Too!

I love things that make my life easier. Who doesn’t? I also love things that make baking desserts easier and not heating up my entire house. That is why I am currently in love with my Holstein Housewares Pound Cake Maker!

You can seriously make pound cake now in about 10 minutes, and that’s including preheating! It took me longer to find the ingredients in my pantry than it did to make a pound cake!

Seriously! Literally, you mix the ingredients together, add to the Holstein Housewares Pound Cake Maker, wait about 8-10 minutes and done! I frosted and decorated after it cooled off. I’m including the pound cake recipe I used, because I never knew I could make chocolate pound cake! Also, let me just say, yum.

Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish Pies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mrs. Smith’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

MrsSmith.jpgAs a busy mom, you all know how important it is for me to find easy ways to make dinner and dessert.  Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies is one of the ways you can have a great dessert that doesn't take up a lot of your time!  Amanda Smith started by baking pies for family, friends and charity events, but when her son, Robert Smith, convinced her to sell her pies, a business was born. Today, the makers of MRS. SMITH'S® desserts continue the tradition started by Amanda Smith, delivering pies and cobblers with made-from-scratch goodness you can see and taste.

Two pIes I personally know I would love are:

Apple and pumpkin pie have always been my favorites, so this was a pretty easy choice.  In total, they have  4 different Deep Dish pies you can choose from: 

  1. Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce
  2. Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce
  3. Signature Deep Dish Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing
  4. Signature Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing

As you can see, you can easily mix the topping amongst them.  They also have a flavor for pretty much everyone!  All of the pies sound absolutely phenominal to me.  Which of the Mrs. Smith's pies would you like to try?

You can follow Mrs. Smith on both Facebook and Pinterest to find out more about their great products.  You can also check out which retailers carry this great brand!
