Soft Easy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Soft Easy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are some of the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had! They smell amazing when cooking, they are amazingly soft and chewy when fresh from the oven,  and they are super easy to make! Growing up I was never a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. I always thought- why raisins and why not chocolate chips! Let’s be honest, I still think this way most of the time! I think I didn’t like them when I was little is because I would be expecting chocolate and then get a raisin. Let’s be honest, when you expect chocolate, anything else doesn’t satisfy. Well, I’ve made and eaten lots of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but I have also come around to enjoying these soft oatmeal raisin cookies because when I make them I know to expect raisins These easy oatmeal raisin cookies are super quick to mix together and will be gobbled up even faster! Simply cream the wet ingredients in a mixer and while those are creaming, mix together the dry ingredients. Then add the dry to the wet and mix. Finally, mix in the oatmeal and raisins and bake! The glaze isn’t necessary but takes the cookies to the next level. So, if you have powdered sugar and a little milk make it! You won’t regret it. While the cookies are baking, combine the glaze ingredients. I like to use almond extract in the glaze because I love the flavor, but feel free to use vanilla or omit the extract all together! When the cookies are done baking, brush with the glaze and enjoy! Now, a disclaimer- these are...

Easy White Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Easy White Chocolate Truffles Recipe

White Chocolate Truffles are one of those decadent desserts you don’t have very often. I have made this easy version so you can make them at home whenever you want!   With just four simple ingredients… (including the sprinkle exterior), these truffles couldn’t be any more simple. Just butter, white chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk. Boom, done! Truffles are traditionally made with ganache. I make a microwavable ganache that I use on all sorts of desserts. Making them into truffles is just a super simple way of using ganache, but they are so good and easy you will want to make them all the time!     Easy White Chocolate Truffles Recipe Directions: Place butter in the bottom of a microwave-safe bowl. Place white chocolate chips on top, and pour the condensed milk over everything. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Let sit one minute. Stir until everything is melted and combined, this might take a few minutes. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. You want to leave this in the fridge until the ganache is set, that will take about 2-3 hours. When the ganache is set, take about 2 to 3 teaspoons of it at a time and roll into balls, immediately roll into sprinkles of your choice and place on a sheet tray. Enjoy! You see these really can’t get much easier!     Now that you have the easy white chocolate truffle base down, you can add all kinds of things to them to make it your own! I suggest dipping them in melted...

So, make these and make not only yourself happy but others too. Sharing is a wonderful thing. These scones are quick to make and are perfect any time of the day, but making them early and then sitting down with some hot tea, cocoa or coffee, and a light, sweet scone sounds perfect.

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

This blueberry coffee cake recipe is hands down one of the best coffee cakes ever! My husband loves it and I took it to a family get together and everyone there loved it too! And did I mention it is super easy to make? Who doesn’t love a good coffee cake? When I was little I thought coffee cake would taste like coffee- which to my young mind meant bitter! But once I was enlightened to what coffee cake really was, I was hooked! When whipping this up, I made sure to gently fold in the blueberries. That way they won’t break prior to baking and turn the whole batter grey. But hey, if that accidentally happens it will still be delicious, just maybe a slightly different color. No one will care as soon as they taste it! This easy blueberry coffee cake is made with bisquick- because bisquick makes everything easy and always turns out exactly how I wanted it to. So that is a winner in my book. I also made this recipe to have a lot of streusel- you know that sugary crumbly topping that everyone loves. So yeah, I made a ton of it and happily put it on top. No regrets! And if the yummy streusel wasn’t enough (which it totally is!), I made a quick almond glaze! I used almond extract in the glaze because I love the flavor it gives, but you can use vanilla extract instead and it will still be yummy.   This blueberry streusel coffee cake is super light and delicious and goes great with coffee, tea or hey...
