I have a few missed TWD and SMS posts to get up, but for my return to blogging I bring you my first "Blog Love" post. I just love love love so many of your baking/cooking blogs and have been bookmarking and printing your recipes for a long time now. I was inspired by the magnificent Donna of My Tasty Treasures (who blesses us with gorgeous firefigher photos, among other things) and her Imitation posts, and thought I should do a post in honor of a blog I love when I bake at least two of their posts. And so, there you go - my first Blog Love post.
So this post is in honor of the amazing, stupenduous, awesome blog Bakingblonde. Go and check this great blog out if you don't already have it in your google reader. She is so creative, I love it. I have a ton of recipes of hers that I want to try, but this post is about her Intense Chocolate Shock Cookies and Butterscotch Rice Krispies Cookies (click through for the recipes). I have been on a cupcake and cake kick lately and wanted to return to cookie monster land and bake up some cookies for the SF Food Bank bake sale I baked for a while back.
These were AhhhhMAZING. I made a few tweaks, adding Reeses Pieces instead of chocolate chips for the chocolate cookies. And for the butterscotch cookies I added some peanut butter (chunky) in place of some butter (I think it was 1/4 cup peanut butter in place of 1/4 cup butter but can't remember, sorry) as Bakingblonde suggested and added a tad more water because my dough was a little too crumbly at first.
Thanks Bakingblonde. I love your blog.
