My kryptonite……I’m sure of it!

If you know what’s good for you, you’ll just click off my blog right now and move on. These cookies are so delicious and easy, you’ll be making them up in no time! Then, you’ll be eating hiding them. Keep reading if you want to torture yourself and anyone around you that wishes to be skinny! 😉

Homemade Oreos

1 1/4 C. All Purpose Flour
1/2 C. Unsweetened Cocoa
1 t. Baking Soda
1/4 t. Baking Powder
1/4 t. Salt
1-1 1/2 C. sugar (I used just over a cup because it’s uber sweet)
1 1/4 Sticks unsalted butter (softened)
1 Large egg

Cream butter, egg & sugar together. Slowly beat in dry ingredients. Dough will be very thick. Using a teaspoon to scoop a small amount, then roll into a ball and flatten onto your baking pan.
Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Let stand in pan a few minutes then move to cooling rack.

Cream Filling:
1/4 C. unsalted butter
1/4 C. vegatable shortening
2 C. sifted confectioners sugar

Mix well and spoon small amount onto cookies. EAT!! (I mean, put them on a plate and share them. Duh!)

The hardest part? Making all your cookies match in size. Be careful, they are also very addicting! ENJOY!

Nutella is my Kryptonite

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

I was warned! Friends, people who “pretended” to care if I grew 2 or 3 dress sizes, and strangers alike! All of them said, “Don’t do it!….you’ll get hooked!”.

The problem?

I kept forgetting to look for the stuff when I went to the grocery store! So, honestly…..I had my freedom! Until, Gates and I were grocery shopping the other day and I “happened” upon it in the PB section. Hmm, Nutella?!! I’ve really been curious about you! The choices were a small jar for $3 something or a larger one for almost $6 bucks! I threw caution to the wind and went for it…..sure that the large jar would last FOREVER!!!

Oh yes!

Word is out on the street! I’m addicted like a junkie is to drugs! I literally have to walk away from the jar and WILL MYSELF to stay away from it. IT IS DELICIOUS!!!! Gavin and Gates love it too! Ok? It’s not just me eating up this jar! I have OTHER innocent people animals gorging out on it too!

All I can say is…..someone keep it away from me. I’m powerless against it! Nutella–YOU OWN ME!!!
