{food} What I've Been Baking - Part 7

More baking adventures to enjoy! This round involves some sort-of fails because nothing ever comes out perfect all the time. Gotta keep it real, right?


Butter Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were delicious but they came out super flat. I'll have to try it again and see if I can improve on them. I assume I didn't let the butter cool enough after browning. Next time I may chill the dough overnight to see if that helps! 


Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these on a whim during our trip to visit Christian's family in Missouri. We had a small cookout and wanted a dessert so I whipped them up before everyone arrived! They were REALLY good and look how nice and fat they baked! Will definitely be making these again.

Gooey Chocolate Pizza Cookie from Handle The Heat's The Ultimate Cookie Handbook

This recipe was only a fail because we tried to grill it rather than cooking it in the oven. It's supposed to be kind of like a lava cake. The grill didn’t get to 400° so we left it on a little longer which was a mistake. The bottom and edges burned and it wasn't “gooey” like it was supposed to be. BUT the 3/4 that was edible was still good! (The foil we put on it to protect it from charcoal smell somehow stuck to the top resulting in a beautiful “design,” haha!) Next time we'll make it in the oven.


5 Minute Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Toast

Not sure if this counts as baking, but it's a dessert/breakfast and was delicious so I have to share! I was afraid to add too much chocolate when we made them,might add some more next time! 



Lemon Meringue Pie

Used one of my recipe books so I don't have a link. I don't usually do lemon so this was a Christian only dessert. He loved it so I'd say it was a hit. Pretty sure it was similar to most other lemon meringue pie recipes so anything you choose will be delicious!

No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream 

Not exactly baked, but another dessert. I needed to use leftover sweetened condensed milk so I halved the recipe. (After making it I bought a couple more cans so we can make it again!) It was so delicious and we both loved the texture! I can't wait to make it again. I feel like we should try something other than chocolate chip, so maybe I'll throw in some Oreos or something else to make it more fun!

  1. I've never tried making my own ice cream before but that looks so delicious! :) I love the second cookies too - we made a lot of cookies in lockdown last year, I feel it's something small and easy and it's not too bad if you mess it up - usually they are still pretty edible!

    Hope you are having a good week :)
