more snacks

So, want to see what I've been up to the past few days?:)

I made some Biscotti! I used this recipe, but I used 1 1/2 cups of cranberries and 3/4 cup of sliced almonds instead. Then I covered one side in melted white chocolate! mmmm....



Then I made some Coconut Balls....OMG these are amazing! I will admit I got them from Martha Stewart's site....I've always been a bit skeptic of her...to say the least, but these are SUCH winners! I love coconut. like LOVE. These taste like macaroons....sorta.....but at the same time its so buttery and crumbly melt in your mouth goodness :)

Heres the Recipe: (or find it here)

Coconut Balls

Makes 36

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (or 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, plus more for dusting
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Mix in flour and salt until they're just combined. Stir in coconut.
  2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls;** I found that mine just would NOT form a dough, no matter HOW much I beat the mixture! So I just took the crumbs and formed it into little balls by squeezing them hard in my hands.....turned out great either way! :) place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake until just starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Roll the warm cookies in confectioners' sugar; let cool completely.




And Fnally, I made some good old fashion peanut butter cookies! I had a fav recipe that I couldnt find, but I *think* this was it? Close to anyways! :) It was pretty good!
