Such a lovely surprise came in the mail the other day…Christina Lane’s (Dessert for Two blog) new cookbook Sweet & Simple: Dessert for Two. As soon as I opened the book so many recipes jumped out at me. The first I had to try were these Gooey Butter Cake Cookies…who could resist these?! Anything that tastes like a Gooey Butter Cake has got to be swoon worthy!
These cookies have become a new family favorite, just ask my kids and my coonhound Moose. He climbed onto the kitchen cabinet to grab some while we were out ice skating. He’s obsessed with butter…
These cookies have the perfect texture which comes from a nice portion of butter and some cream cheese. I do suggest you try them as soon as you can!
I’ve been a fan of Christina’s blog Dessert for Two for quite a while. She is a pro at scaling down our favorite desserts with precision. This means we don’t have to over eat our favorite treats. You can make just enough for date night, Valentine’s Day or any time you have a sweet tooth craving. I also love that she included many desserts with natural sweeteners. This means way less guilt when sitting down to that pan of brownies or even Creme Brûlée.
This cookbook is an essential for your collection & the perfect gift for your friends.
