Fourth of July

You have to love patriotic desserts. Hope everyone had a fun and safe fourth. I made some square sugar cookies that I frosted altogether with a lemon cream cheese frosting and decorated with some patriotic fruit. Looked great. Tasted great!

Featured on Style me Pretty!!

This literally made my day! One of my best friends was married back in November, first of all I was so excited for her upcoming nuptials and to be a part of the wedding, and then to add to all that greatness she was so sweet to ask me to make desserts for the wedding. We always loved to bake together so it meant a lot to me to make treats for her wedding.  Things just seem to get better and better when I hear that this wedding was featured on Style me Pretty and that Kravings got a shout out!! Amy Jo the photographer took some gorgeous photos of the wedding and these are two with my desserts in them.

I made oreo sandwich cookies (with some gold sprinkles), banana sandwich cookies and snickerdoodles. It was so exciting to see people enjoying the treats that I made, I truly love this stuff!

Check the wedding out on Style me Pretty!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these back around the release of the second Hunger Games. I asked one of my friends what kind of cookies I should make for the midnight movie premier that we were going to. His reply was "Katniss Cookies." This is what I decided to make to be the Katniss Cookies.

And may the odds be ever in your favor.

Mix together:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, soft
1 1/4 cup  dark brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. cinnamon

Mix in after sifting together:
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt

3 cups oatmeal (whole oats)
1/2 to 3/4 of pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
Optional- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Bake 350* for 10 minutes on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

*This is the original recipe but I added another 1/4 t. of cinnamon, 1 cup less of oats, and added both semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips. 

Tell me how it goes if your try the recipe!!
