Strawberry Cake Cookies

Cake cookies! These are a hybrid of a cookie and a slice of cake..moist and fluffy at the same time. YUM.

I love these because you can really taste the fresh strawberry flavor and they’re just so darn pretty.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. With a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy
  3. Add in the strawberries, egg and vanilla.  Mix completely.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.  Add this mix to the wet ingredients.
  5. Put a tablespoon size amount dough on baking sheet (make sure you flatten with a fork) and bake for 8 minutes.  *For decoration, push a small slice of strawberry on top of every cookie.
  6. Remove and let cookies cool for 20 minutes

Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

A match made in heaven? I think so.

Seriously, throw a peanut butter cup in anything and it becomes just a bit better.  It’s your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and store-bought Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (honestly, if you’re super lazy you can buy packaged or refrigerated cookie dough and I doubt anyone would  notice..or care for that matter)

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks of butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (you’ll need about 20 of them)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Combine all ingredients to make the cookie dough (besides the Reese’s). Mix well until fully incorporated.
  3. Take a tablespoon of the dough and roll it into a ball.  Place the Reese’s on top and press into the dough.  Then take another tablespoon of dough and cover the exposed side of the Reese’s.
  4. Make sure all parts of the peanut butter cup is covered with dough. Place on baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 7 minutes
  6. Let it cook and…enjoy!
