Dove Dumplings!

I'm much more of a cook than a baker. Proceed. 

My family hosted a party over Thanksgiving Break, so my sister and I scouted Pinterest to find some simple recipes for the occassion. She found this photo from Picky Palate...
...but instead of clicking through to the recipe, we just bought some Dove chocolates and sugar cookies. The recipe actually called for a Pie Crust and Kisses, but Dove was on sale. We rolled out the sugar cookie dough (pre-made, duh), used a cookie cutter and placed a Dove chocolate in the middle.  I ended up having to roll the dough around the chocolate. Unfortunately, the shape of the chocolate turned the cookie into more of a... dumpling. The result was still great! After 10-12 minutes in the oven, the cookie had melted the chocolate with a thin layer throughout.
They were definitely a hit but next time I won't rely on one photo to give me a recipe. Live & learn.

  2. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.

    lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a
    great job with this. Additionally,

    the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

  3. Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog

    soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a
    free platform like

    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
