With the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino behind us, lets continue to the Unicorn fun with Donuts! You are going to feel pretty magical as you make these – and your taste buds will thank you! But don’t worry, these are not made of pure sugar!
One of my goals this year is to perfect the macarons. I have tried these in the past and I knew that they were going to be a real challenge but I am totally up for it. And wouldn’t you know it, I found a recipe that I love and that I am going to work from. Of COURSE I had to share it with you. Its St. Patricks Day here in the US so I decided to make the macarons light green in honor of the holiday.
Ever since I was a little kid, I remember getting Andes mints in my stocking (not sure why mom switched from those to LifeSavers, but I digress). So for me, it was only a matter of time before I wanted to bake with them. However, there was a really deicious surprise that came out of trying this recipe – that they taste a lot like the thin min Girl Scout cookies – no joke.
Maybe one of the best things to come out of my kitchen and a fan favorite since the beginning. Whether you want to place this on cake, cookies or even whoopee pies, this is sure to please!!
I had to share this recipe given to me from a close co-worker of mine (shout out to you Olivia), both for his benefit in re-entering the sweets world, but for those of us want a quick cookie fix without having to commit to making an entire batch of cookies.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
The key so the recipe is the very first step, which is creaming together the Crisco, brown sugar, sugar, milk, vanilla and eggs.
