These pretty pink cookies were for a friend’s baby shower. We learned she was baking up a little girl when I made these cupcakes.
I made babies similar to these, but knew I wanted her smiling instead of screaming.
And since she is going to be the first girl baby in our group, and will be SO SO spoiled, they had to be princess themed. Diamonds and tiaras. 🙂 After outlining the tiaras, I painted them with silver luster dust mixed with a few drops of vodka. It turned them from grey to silver. Much more appropriate for princess attire.
I also threw in some mini hearts because they are easy and good fillers for a party when not everyone will take a larger (normal) sized cookie.
These were the first cookies I’ve made in a long time, besides my Christmas cookies. (Which, for the record, didn’t get finished… and the ones I did finish never got photographed so they never got shared. Meh.) It felt good to make cookies again, but my skills are definitely a little rusty. I’m not gonna lie – there were a lot of re-dos, and a few tears shed… and my husband standing behind me reassuring me that I’m being too hard on myself and that I’m just out of practice. *sigh* I seriously don’t know what I’d do without him. ❤

Remember me? That girl that used to bake and blog about it?
So I had this baby. (Who I’m so completely in love with by the way.)
I’m also back to work full-time, which means basically no time for sugar, butter, and flour.
BUT. My brother was home for Christmas, and I promised him I’d bake him something.
Cookies and Cream Blondies – adapted from my favorite blondie recipe
2 sticks butter (I use salted)
2 cups packed brown sugar (I used light)
2 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
2 cups flour
Entire pack of Double Stuf Oreos, crushed
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Melt butter. Beat with brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in vanilla and egg.
4. Add salt, then stir in flour until fully incorporated.
5. Mix in Oreo crumbles by hand.
6. Spray a 13×9 pan with non-stick spray, then pour batter into pan. Spread the top as even as possible.
7. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting so that the ooey gooey inside can set.
At first I thought I out too much Oreos in it because the batter was SO thick. I was worried it wouldn’t bake up well.
WOW I was wrong. These were amazing!
My brother claims that they are his favorite thing I’ve ever made. 🙂

After some thought, I have decided to change my blog name from “Carrie’s Creations” to just Cookie Carrie.
I realized it was a tad bit confusing having 2 different names that people know me under, so hopefully this will simplify things.
As always, you can find me on :

Thank you all for hanging around through me absence! I promise a new treat is coming your way this week. 🙂
