Snowy Mountain Cookies


I'm happy to be joining the Baking Bloggers for December's theme- snow!  Mother Nature must have thought I needed some inspiration because we got nearly two feet of the white stuff over the last week. 

I chose this recipe from Taste of Home because I loved the story that went with it. Stephanie B. went to school where she could see the Alps from her window.  New Hampshire's White Mountains are one of my favorite places to visit, but I also thought of our summer trip to Alaska, and how beautiful Denali was, covered in snow even in July.


I did make a few changes to the recipe.  I left out the nuts due to allergies.  I also used a powdered sugar glaze for the snow because my guys don't really love white chocolate. I used about 1/3c of powdered sugar and 2t water to get the consistency I wanted.   I couldn't get my hands on a triangle shaped cookie cutter, so I used a ruler and a pizza wheel.


They didn't all turn out exactly the same shape, but I think that only made them more fun.  Thank you so much to Sue from Palatable Pastime for hosting, and to all of the other bloggers for sharing their awesome recipes!




Snowy Mountain Cookies

Snowy Mountain Cookies

ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts, optional
  • 1 package (12 ounces) white baking chips
  • White nonpareils

instructions:

  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips and, if desired, walnuts; mix well. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 30 minutes.
  2.  Preheat oven to 325°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. triangle-shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until edges begin to brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt white baking chips; stir until smooth. Dip cookie tops in melted chips; sprinkle with nonpareils. Let stand until set.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
