Food for Friday


I have a couple cookie recipes I discovered on Pinterest that I think are worthy of passing on!

Those of you who love carrot cake will enjoy these Carrot-Cake Sandwich Cookies from Get Off Your Butt and Bake. Gotta love that name!!! :)

These cookies are amazing, they taste just like carrot cake with the Cream Cheese Frosting in the center! Heads up, I didn't cook mine long enough so they were too soft to frost, they kept breaking apart. Even still, my son and I put a dollop of frosting on a small plate and ate our cookies with a fork, dipping pieces into the frosting. I will definitely be making these again and working out the precise baking time.

A couple weeks ago I made these yummy cookies.

They are Almond Cinnamon Cookies from Better Homes and Gardens. They taste very much like Snickerdoodles with an almond flavor and brown butter glaze. I loved the addition of the almond. By the way, the above photograph is from my cookies. They turned out looking just like the recip!. I just love when I get it right! Here's Better Homes and Garden's photo.

Another thing I've discovered with most dessert recipes is that I can halve the frosting recipe and still have more than I need. So unless you love gobs of yourself some calories and money.

Here's to a sweet weekend! Enjoy!

Yummy treats! They both sound fabulous. And I have to say that your photo of the cookies turned out better than Better Homes & Garden!
