I decided to make Brownie Covered Oreos and Sugared Up Sugar Cookies. I found the delicious Brownie treats at Picky-Palate last week. How can you go wrong with an Oreo dunked in brownie batter. I'll answer that for you, you can't! :) My sugared up sugar cookies were suppose to be more of a snickerdoodle cookie, but I goofed on the cinnamon and didn't get enough on the cookies! Isn't it funny that when you mess up a recipe, you sometimes create something better than you were intending to make? Sometimes, other times you get a gigantic cookie mess! Here are the recipes:
Brownie Covered Oreos
from: Picky Palate
1 Brownie mix
1 package Oreos
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Leave in mixing bowl. Dip Oreos in brownie batter then place in bottom of a muffin pan that has been generously sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until brownies are cooked through. As soon as you remove, take a plastic knife and run along edges, (this is VERY important so you get the cookie out with brownies not stuck to pan). Let cool for 5 minutes, remove and EAT! Enjoy! Makes entire package of Oreos
My first batch turned out more cake looking then cookie looking. I discovered on my second batch that you don't want a whole lot of brownie batter around the cookie, it's best to shake some off before you put it in the pan. It makes it more cookie like, less muffin/little cake like! To us these tasted best when cooled off, if you can wait that long!
Sugared Up Sugar Cookies
1 package Sugar Cooke Mix
Red and Green Sugar Crystal Sprinkles
Prepare cookie mix according to package directions. In a small bowl, combine sugar, red and green sugar sprinkles and cinnamon (create your own proportions, use more cinnamon if you want it to be more snickerdoodle like, or leave it out if you want just sugar cookies). Cook according to package directions! Deliciously crispy and fantastic! I know it's not really a recipe, it's a package with sprinkles and cinnamon...sorry! Just wanted to share though, because I thought they turned out really great. And I love rolling the cookies in the colored sugar crystals rather than just sprinkling them on top - you get sprinkles on the top and bottom of the cookie and the sides! :)
Thanks for joining us along this 12 week journey. I've discovered some really great blogs along the way and I can't wait to see what every one has in store for the new year! Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. May the Joy and Hope of Christmas remain in your heart throughout the coming year!
