What can I say, this guy loves his cookies.
Yes, in case you’re wondering, I was too lazy to cut Flat Kitty out (or to look for the other ones that might be lying around the house somewhere). I’ve spent my fair share of time with multiple copies of him this week. Ha. I was really excited though to see on Facebook that a few friends got their “thank you” packets.
Thank you Sandy and Erin for making my night! And a very happy birthday to both of you! Either that’s a pretty funny coincidence or Flat Kitty has some amazing timing. Ha ha!
Oh man I have big plans for Flat Kitty Fridays in 2012. You’ll help me out, right? More on that later. If you really want a Flat Kitty though I may be able to hook you up. I have a few left over.
On to business….
I’m still recovering from my marathon baking night (and from sampling a few too many cookies during the wee hours of the morning- I do NOT recommend doing that).
And since these are some of the few remains after all of our deliveries the past two days
I’m going to give you these two recipes and a little Flatout creation I made for my dessert (in lieu of any cookies).
Here’s my Flatout Foldit creation first.
I took one of these Flatout Foldits (that were so generously given by Flatout as part of their sponsorship for our half marathon for Amelia), cut it in half,
topped it with 1/3 of a leftover ripe banana (yep, leftover and had been sitting on the counter for over 2 hours- that’s my life) and a little cinnamon,
attempted to fold them up all cute
After a few minutes I had these little gems (approximately 150 calories for both of them).
Look at that warm banana gooeyness oozing out.
Someone thought I might share.
He was wrong.
He had a 50% chance.
Sorry Flat Kitty. I still love you.
I still love you all too.
Here are the recipes.
Bisquick Peanut Butter Blossoms
I used this recipe for Chocolate-Candy Peanut Butter Cookies.
All I can say is that Betty Crocker sure knows her stuff. I subbed in the Heart Smart Bisquick instead of the original. other than that I just followed the recipe. I want to try these with SunButter next time.
I tweaked this recipe a bit.
Magic Cookie Bars
1/2 cup light butter or margarine
1 cup crushed graham or animal crackers (I used Costco animal crackers)
1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups reduced fat shredded coconut (I used these)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1. Place butter in 13×9 baking pan and heat in oven at 350 degrees until melted.
2. Mix cracker crumbs and oats in small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over butter in pan and press down with a fork (or your fingers),
3. Layer butterscotch chips, coconut and chocolate chips. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk evenly over top.
4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
That was the one I ate.
Happy Flat Kitty Friday!
I have a 19 mile training run this morning and a stack of presents I need to start to wrap at some point in the next 24 hours.
Have a wonderful day!
