Desserts and Snacks Cookbook

This is NOT full of healthy recipes...this is my attempt to keep track of what I eat even during the holiday season. As I make it, I enter the recipe so that I can have an accurate count when I sneak a cookie or two...or three. When I get unlazy, I'll add instructions. April

Cookbook creator says: Food Network recipe. You also sprinkle orange flower water, or a reasonable substitute, on the cookies when they come out of the oven, but who knows where to start figuring out those stats?

Cookbook creator says: Courtesy of my sister...the original uses regular Oreos and cream cheese, and the truffles are twice the size--can you imagine??? These ones are bad enough!

Cookbook creator says: If you want the heat a little more in the background, reduce cayenne to 1/2 tsp; if you want more, well, the sky's the limit I guess. I stick with 1 tsp because my kid will still eat it at that heat level.

Cookbook creator says: I really like these, but I expected them to be crispier--not sure if that's my error or if they're supposed to be as soft as they turned out.

Cookbook creator says: By far the worst calorie stats in my Christmas cookie arsenal, and yet, the most popular of my creations...go figure. From a BH&G Christmas book.

Cookbook creator says: So easy to make, but make sure to spray AND FLOUR the pan, otherwise you'll have a B!*$% of a time getting your pan clean.

Cookbook creator says: Color me shocked at the stats on this one. Using big pretzels twists (the thin, not the thick) and almond bark. It's the stupid almond bark that does it, but I have zero success dipping in regular chocolate.

Cookbook creator says: Sweeter than I imagined. Next time I'm going to try and cheat it a bit and leave out some of the sugar...not sure what to replace it with...maybe flour, it's pretty moist as is, so it could handle it.

Cookbook creator says: In retrospect, I should really get fewer cookies out of this...48 is pushing it; I think 36 would be okay. They're just too thin in the end to hold up under the icing. Next year, no tree cookies--bad shape!

Cookbook creator says: Obviously not low fat or low cal...now explain to me again why I ate like three servings of this over the course of Thanksgiving weekend? Next year I'll try and slim it down some.

Cookbook creator says: I wasn't overly fond of this pie. Partly my fault, 'cause my hand sorta slipped when I was adding cloves and ended up with WAY too much. But partly it just wasn't, well...good. Not pumpkin-y enough.

Cookbook creator says: I could eat like six of these. But I guess that would defeat the purpose. Good with a little cool whip lite on top as well.

Cookbook creator says: My grandmother used to make these. This is actually her sister's recipe and it's just a little bit different from all the similar ones I've found. Definitely the new worst--move over peanut brittle bars!
