12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Bonus Day! - Blissful & Domestic

In addition to the original 12 Days of Christmas Crafts I chose to include a few bonus days! There were so many great days I couldn't just pick 12! So here today we have Danielle from Blissful & Domestic who is going to share with us a sweet recipe!

Hello Lovelies! I am so excited to be here at The Kurtz Corner! Thanks for having me Audra. I am excited to share a fun recipe with you today. Before we get cooking though, I thought I would introduce myself first.

I am Danielle and my home is over at Blissful and Domestic. I love to blog about sewing, crafts, recipes,home-school, etc. Basically anything that allows me to use my creative gene. I love thrift stores and re-purposing, which is mainly what you will see from me. I love taking someone's cast offs and make them into something fantastic. So in a nutshell I am a crafting Mom, who loves to blog and share with all my blogging friends.

Now that you know a little bit about me...how about we get cooking?

Now I am a busy mamma. I homeschool my two littles redheads, which takes up a BIG part of my day. The rest of my time is spent tending to my family, the house, etc ... That being said, I don't always have time to make goodies. I am always on the look out for quick, simple recipes, which is what I am sharing with you today. Today I am sharing with you my go to cookie recipe. It is super easy to make and takes little time and ingredients to make. Do I have your attention?

I thought so...

I use a big spoon, sprayed with cooking spray. It makes this step a cinch!

P/S Don't judge my baking pans...
they just prove I use them often:)

Bake @ 350 for 10-15 minutes.
Cool 10 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack or plate.

Now you can leave your cookies as is or you can whip up some yummy Buttercream icing. I would go with the icing. It is Delish!

Here is my recipe for 5 Minute Butter-cream Frosting

Photobucket

1 lb. box of Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 stick of butter (softened)

Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes, scraping bowl often.
I love adding food coloring for the holidays. Always so festive!
Frost cookies and make into sandwhiches.

These are THE BEST whoopie pies EVER!
