Another very busy weekend! Each day packed full, but everything turned out great! I spent Friday night with my small group girls and other girls in our high school ministry group just hanging out and making these really cool mugs. It was a great girls night for them to meet new people and have fun in a relaxed environment.
I spent Saturday morning running some errands to get ready for Christmas. It seems a little early for me to start doing this, but there were some great deals that I just couldn’t pass up! I then made the journey to Wisconsin for our last game of the regular season. Nothing taste sweeter than finishing out a regular season with another win! An undefeated season deserved a special treat for Tuesday Treat Day. So I tried fondant for the first time. It definitely wasn’t as easy as the shows on TV makes it look. Maybe with a little more practice, and even a class, one day I will be better at it. But I think the cake turned out great! And all of the guys appreciated it.
Sunday was another busy day with out annual High School Ministry Turkey Bowl. We use this event for community outreach, hoping that our students bring their friends. We had a great turn out, even though it was cold and windy. Having heaters, hot chocolate, and lots of chili was the best way to stay warm.
So now that the regular football season is done, we head into playoffs. Luckily our first game is home, so we won’t need to travel. The more we win, the more treats I get to make, so I better start coming up with some new ideas! Below is a treat a made just a few weeks ago. Hope you like it!
I knew before even making these that the guys would love them! How can you not like raw cookie dough? And dough without egg makes it safe to eat. Which meant I snuck a little bit while making them.
Cookie Dough Cupcakes
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 4 Tablespoons milk
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into 24-48 balls. Freeze dough for up to 24 hours for best results.
- 3 and 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cup sugar
- 2 large egg
- ½ cup yogurt (plain or vanilla, can also use sour cream)
- 1½ cup almond milk (can also use soy, a regular)
- 4 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350º. Mix all dry ingredients together, set aside. Melt the butter, stir in sugar and egg. Mix well. Add yogurt, milk and vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients. Mix very well. Divide the batter evenly in a lined cupcake pan. Drop a ball of cookie dough in each one. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Once cool, top with your favorite frosting!
