On gushing about the Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Surprise (otherwise know as the “Best Dessert Ever”), I forgot to tell you about all the other birthday desserts! You know my mom couldn’t stop at just one;-)
- Chocolate and Banana Three Layer Cake with Mocha Buttercream
- Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing
- Ice Cream “Pie” with a Chocolate Krispie Treat Crust
I was so excited to go back to the shore this weekend and eat leftovers (we froze the desserts for the week), but thanks to a little thing called Irene, we stayed home.
Now, onto the cookies! For my second month of the Secret Recipe Club, I got Wives with Knives. Cathy has a great variety of recipes on her blog, but the Tate’s Chocolate Chip Cookies caught my eye.
Tate’s cookies are famous for the crispness. Originally I thought this would be the perfect cookie for my dad, a lover of crispy cookies.
However, like Cathy, the cookies didn’t come out very crisp. They did get a nice crunch on the outside, though, and had great flavor. I actually think these are the perfect cookies to dip in milk, but I’ll have to find another perfect cookie for my dad! Definitely try the recipe if you are a crunchy cookie fan.
I hope everyone stayed safe from the storm this weekend!
