Recipe: Super Tasty White Choc Chip Cookies

HI! Sorry I have not posted much in a while, My camera broke and I finally bought one (it's going back, I am not happy with it) but I managed to take some test pictures of some cookies I made so I figured I'd post this.

If you love soft chunky cookies that are moist, this is the recipe for you. :-) I make these every week, with different variations. If you like this I can post more in the future, so please let me know.


Ingredients

    1 cup Butter (Room temp or cut in pieces and Microwave for 20-30 secs)
    1/2 cup Brown Sugar
    1/2 cup Sugar
    3.4 oz pkg instant Chocolate pudding mix
    2 eggs (at room temp)
    1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
    1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence or Extract
    2 1/4 cup Flour
    1 tsp Baking soda
    1/2 tsp Baking powder
    2 Cups of White Choc Chips (I use Ghirardelli)

Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Cream together butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the dry pudding mix and vanilla essence.
   
    Beat in one egg at a time.

    In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Then slowly stir into the wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. (I usually get the dry ingredients set up before I start that way I don't have to run around measuring things)

    Line baking sheet with baking paper and then spoon cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10   minutes depending on your cookie size. (I make either 16 large cookies or about 20 medium Sized.)

    Cool & Enjoy!



(They have lasted me 5 days and tasted great but they can probably go a bit longer.)

I would like to apologize for no posts, My camera is broken and I can't take any decent pictures at the moment until i buy a new one, which might be a while. Here is a recipe for a Popsicle I made for my daughter, she loves these and has already eaten half the batch.

The recipe takes a few minutes and you can make 6 - 8 Popsicles.

    1/2 Cup of Coconut Milk (I use Thai Kitchen Organic Milk)

    1 Tbsp of Honey
    1 Tbsp of Condensed Milk (You can skip this or just add 1Tablespoonof honey again instead)
    1/4 cup of Protein Powder (I used BSN Syntha-6 Vanilla)
    10 leaves of clean baby spinach


    1. In a blender, puree the yogurt, Cream and coconut milk. Once a smooth consistency is reached,  add the frozen blueberries, spinach leaves and blend.
   
    2. Add your tablespoon of Honey and condensed milk and blend.

    3. Add protein powder and blend.

    4. Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 Hrs.
   
    5. Remove from the molds and enjoy!
