Holiday Cheesecake Cookies

Cookie dough: 400 g all purpose flour 125 g confectioners’ sugar 200 g butter 1 egg pinch of salt Filling: 100 g sour cream 200 g cream cheese, room temperature 100 g sweetened condensed milk 2 tbs lemon juice strawberry jam To decorate: Red and green food colouring, and wooden skewers Instructions: 1. Let’s start preparing cookie dough. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball. 2. Divide the dough in two, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball. 3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,5 cm. 4. Using a beveled cookie cutter, cut out circles and drape one circle over each bowl cavity of pan, pressing to form smooth surface. (I used a mini cupcake pan) 5. Chill whilst preheating oven to 350º F (180 ºC) 6. Slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes 7. Let them cool completely on a wire rack 8. When cold, prepare cheese filling. Mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream (or whip cream) and cream cheese on a medium bowl, until combined. Add lemon juice and mix well. 9. Place two tablespoons cheese cream on a small bowl, and another two tablespoons on a separate small bowl. Tint one of the bowls with red food colouring, and the other one with green food colouring. 10. Place 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on every cookie bowl. Fill with cheese cream. Use wooden skewers and red and green mixes to decorate 11. Keep in the fridge until set (about 4 hours if using sour cream, at least 24 hours if using whipping cream). They are better the next day. Can be stored several days on the fridge

Santa Sushi Is A Thing.
So every Christmas, there's the eggnog, the gingerbread, the candy canes, and even that generic variety tin of three different popcorns, but maybe this 'Santa sushi' roll will become a new holiday staple food. (Okay, maybe not because I think the country's still polarized when it comes to raw seafood, but hey, guys! Check this out!) The good YouTubers of How To Make Sushi created a really awesome tutorial of how to make your own Santa sushi rolls at home. And while it's definitely too advanced for a beginner chef like me, it still doesn't stop me from watching the video the whole way through. For those of you who don't feel like watching a 10 minute video of some dude carving fish, I gifed up my favorite parts. Let's watch together, shall we? First, the sushi chef shaves the salmon down to make a perfectly red Santa hat. Boom. Add crab stick and a carrot and the hat is complete. Then, the beard is thrown together with fluffy sushi rice and some seaweed to create Santa's trademark jolly smile. Raspberry juice-stained rice is used to add color to his skin. (Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit more like Kraang from 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' right now?) Put it all together, and what do you get? Et voila! The Santa sushi roll is complete! So what do you guys think? Is this not the coolest thing ever? Am I the only one excited about this? Would you eat Santa's face too? Let me know I'm not the only easily amused one around here, okay?
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of a Convection Oven?
A high quality, the multi-functional oven is the main part of a versatile kitchen. Baking, roasting, or cooking, a high-end professional oven will make your task easy and give you a restaurant-like feel even at home. But when it comes to buying ovens most people get themselves confused about the right choice and think that every oven is the same. If you are on a cooking spree or have researched well about different cookwares then you know that convection oven is different from conventional ovens in many aspects. In case you are not a pro, then for your information; a convection oven has inbuilt fans that circulate the heat distributing it evenly around. Whereas traditional ovens have no fans hence no homogenous heat distribution is expected. While this may give a hint that a convection oven is the best option, here are some advantages and disadvantages of a convection oven so that you make the right choice before purchasing an oven for your kitchen. Advantages of Convection Oven · A convection oven offers uniform heating and hence it allows your food to be cooked evenly. Even if you are baking something, this oven will raise your cakes and brownies evenly giving them a picture-perfect look. · The temperature control is much easier in a convection oven than the ordinary ones. · These ovens allow faster baking and cooking leaving no hot or cold spots inside. · Since these ovens allow faster cooking and baking, hence they are more energy and time-efficient. · The best part of this oven is that you can bake as many items as you want without being worried about the load on the oven. All your items will be cooked properly and evenly no matter which side of the oven you have placed your dish in. Uniform heating will cook your food evenly. · This oven keeps it's exterior cool and interior hot. Hence you can easily handle your food and oven without the fear of burning your hands. · This oven also prevents flavor transfer; hence multiple items can be cooked at one time. · Most of the convection ovens also come with a self-cleaning feature hence it saves your time and effort. Disadvantages of Convection Oven · The first disadvantage is the cost of convection ovens. They are pretty much expensive than regular ovens. · Some of the fans can be louder than conventional ovens hence creating inconvenience for some users. · The fans can also either blow out near the foil or parchment paper hence destroying your food. · They are less reliable and more liable because of an additional fan motor that is suspected to burn or damage upon improper use. · You have to be very precise with your chosen cooking time since opening the door more frequently may affect the timing of cooking. Bonus Tip Before Getting an Oven If you are planning to purchase a convection oven, make sure you purchase the right one. Many companies claim that Microwave ovens are the same as convection ovens but in reality, only a few microwave ovens are convection based. It is best to search for one online before going into the market you can find many microwave convection ovens for sale to grab the best offer of the season.
Faking It On Valentine's Day
Here's a really cool idea for Valentine's Day: FAKE IT! For real! Guys can be either really lazy about V-Day or over-think it and determine to learn new skills, such as cooking, on one of the biggest hyped calendar dates in the year, February 14th. That's probably not the best approach to making the date night more than being memorable for being bad. Instead of trying to bake a cake or cookies, or dare yourself into making fudge, you could avoid a messy crisis and make your own Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. TRUST ME, IT'S EASY! You Will Need: Strawberries (washed and thoroughly dried) Candy Melts (pink and white) Chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best) Edible gold Edible glitter Edible embellishments (there's time to order from Amazon) Directions Melt the Candy Melts and chocolate (according to the package) in their own container/bowl. Dip strawberries into desired bowl and set aside. Drizzle a different color "melt" onto the dipped strawberries. Also, redip the strawberries in another "melt" at the tip and immediately dredge in edible glitter. Set these in a tray in the fridge and take out to de-chill a few moments before eating. These are fruity, gently sweetened with the chocolate and melts, and will look AMAZING with the edible embellishments! Who is going to do this for their Special Valentine!?!?!?! @InPlainSight @BeannachtOreibh @nicolejb @ChriSingularis @ButterflyBlu @Arellano1052 @alywoah @AkashBhojraj @jordanhamilton @MichelleHolly @caricakes @marshalledgar @VeronicaArtino @TessStevens @shannonl5 @NerukaWong @humairaa @buddyesd @TerrecaRiley @danidee @BluBear07 @thePinkPrincess @EasternShell @seouls @matildajgarrett @RobertMarsh @1FallenAngel @alyssastano @Adrienpie @RaquelArredondo @Luci546 @BivianaaChavez @Lushisushi @Danse @DeepakAswal @luna1171 @JPBenedetto @deefran @RogueLeigh @myguardian @Gacrus @MissB82 @Lizzeh @Kyokeo @Emealia @paulisadroid @ShinigamiSan @CurrySoop @baileykayleen @DestinaByrd @ChelseaAustin @xojuliettexox @netchtiBates @aabxo @KellyOConnor @Kamiamon @parktaemi @arnelli @NickySerban @visions2020 @JimTurpen @PrinceCampbell @2Distracted @Dynamo @VKookie47 @medley24 @ZackMcLaughlin @MoisEsGaray @KeziahWright @pppfittu13 @washmydishes @eoin8899 @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @orenshani7 @Alletaire @funnella @DamariusKelley @MariPili @InspirationalMe @Beeplzzz @SamratGolhar @MajahnNelson @hikaymm @AnimeLove300 @SeoInHan @TensaZangetsu98 @carmaa10 @cindystran @AshelyJewell @MaighdlinS @JamiMilsap @xDaisyDaysx @IMDEEPINIT @LisaMarissa @Emmeronsage @LemarDeco @Ash1998 @LessThanThree @TracyLynnn @KaiTakashima @saraortiz2002 @Zxenna @MelissaMae @atmi @Helixx @VanessaSimmons @JessicaChaney @mArshadKhan @MarvelTrashcan @MarkoKaRiambo @VarunNambiar

Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookies
I can't tell if how much I love caramel should be cause for concern, or if everyone loves that sweet gooey goodness as much as I do. *shrug* What can I say? I know I posted a caramel-stuffed cookie recipe not so long ago, but I saw this one on Sally's Baking Addiction and simply could not resist. Dark chocolate cookies stuffed with caramel, sprinkled with large flake sea salt? Yes please. Oh, and these don't have just any old caramel on the inside. They're ROLOs. Isn't that ingenious?? What you'll need: 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar 1/2 cup (100g) packed dark brown sugar (or light brown sugar) 1 large egg, room temperature preferred 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly) 2/3 cup (58g) unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk 1 and 1/2 cups (270g) Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels 16-17 chocolate coated caramels, such as Rolos coarse sea salt 1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter on medium speed for about 20 seconds. Add sugars and cream together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. 2. In another medium-size mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to wet ingredients until combined. Stir in milk, and fold in dark chocolate morsels. Let dough chill for 1-2 hours. 3. Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To form cookies, take 2 tablespoons of dough, split in half, and stick a caramel in the middle. Roll into a ball, making sure caramel is sealed completely inside. Sprinkle with sea salt before baking. Repeat 16-18 times. 4. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cookies will still appear somewhat raw, but they will continue cooking after you remove them from oven. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before carefully removing to wire rack to cool completely. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cookies will appear undone and very soft. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. I am making these the SECOND I have some baking time in my schedule. I can't wait. For someone who loves to eat healthy and exercise, I sure can eat a lot of chocolate and caramel... Hope you guys enjoyed the recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction! :) Be sure to check out her blog for more awesome recipes.
Homemade Pop-Tarts? Oh Hells Yeah!
I never want to eat a store bought Pop-Tart again. Not after looking at this recipe, which uses real, flaky butter pastry (instead of crumbly cardboard dough) and your favorite fruit preserves (instead of sugar mixed with red dye 40). The homemade frosting and cheerful rainbow sprinkles are the icing on the cake! Photo and recipe credit go to Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy, an awesome cooking and baking blog that you need to check out! For now, here's the recipe for your new favorite breakfast (or anytime) treat. Homemade Pop-Tarts Prep Time: 20 mins. Chill Time: 3 hours. Cook Time: 30 mins. Difficulty: Medium Makes 8 pop-tarts What You'll Need For the pastry: 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1 tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes 4 - 5 Tbsp ice water 3/4 cup strawberry preserves, divided (or other preserve of choice) For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp half and half, plus more as needed 1/4 tsp vanilla extract What To Do 1. Make the pastry dough: Pulse together flour, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor. Add butter and continue to pulse until the butter is broken up, and the mixture has a mealy texture. Add 4 tablespoons of water and pulse a few times until it comes together into dough; if it fails to come together, add another tablespoon of water and pulse again. 2. On a clean surface, divide dough into two portions. Shape each into a 5-inch dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Meanwhile, line two rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper. 3. Remove one disk from the fridge; leave the other one to chill. Roll out the dough disk into a rectangle measuring approximately 13 inches by 11 inches. If edges crack, just stick them back together and keep rolling. Trim edges just so, so you have a 12"x10" perfect rectangle. Cut this into 8 5"x3" rectangles. 4. Arrange 4 rectangles evenly spaced on the parchment-lined cookie sheet; spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of jam evenly down the center of each rectangle. Seal edges with fingertips, then reseal with a fork. Use a tooth pick to poke the top of each tart 4 times. Let chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or up to one week. 5. Repeat process with second disk of dough. 6. Preheat oven to 375°F. With one rack in the upper third of the oven and one in the bottom third, bake frozen tarts until golden, rotating racks halfway through baking. It will take about 25-30 minutes in all. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for several minutes, then transfer to wire rack. 7. Make the icing: Whisk together all ingredients, then add additional half and half a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Spread over cooled pop-tarts, then dust with rainbow sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy! A little bit of a process, but totally worth it, don't you think? I can't wait to try these sweet treats in my own kitchen! :D
