Cookie Bowls

These delectable treats were an inspiration from pinterest. The actual recipe is more of a shortbread cookie, but I just used my chocolate chip cookie recipe
These are great treats for birthdays, special events, or for your personal enjoyment. 
So good as ice cream bowls.

Cookie Bowls

  • Cookie dough- I don't know if all cookie dough recipes will work. I error on a little more flour so the dough isn't quite so runny when making these.
  • Muffin tray
  • Non-stick spray
Cooking Directions
Generously spray the bottom of your muffin tray, make sure you cover all sides. If you want, sprinkle flour as well. Form the cookie dough around the back side of the muffin cup. I usually use only enough cookie dough to go half-way down the cup as the dough will fall during the baking process.  Bake at 350 about 8-10 min. Each time I make these, I start out by baking only two the first time to gauge how the dough will react on the muffin tray. Allow to cool a few minutes, then carefully slide each individual cookie cup off. Cool Completely.

Roasted Potatoes

I discovered these a while ago off one of the food blogs I follow. We love them.
My husband says, "You've made potatoes good again." He's not a huge fan of potatoes.
Gaby bakes hers in a dish but I prefer baking them on a cookie tray, they get nice and crispy.
These make great leftovers, I just throw them in my toaster oven and they are just as good.
You really need to try these potatoes.

Roasted Potatoes

  • 4-5 c. potatoes, cut into chunks. I've made it with a variety of potatoes, all equally good
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp paprika- I add more for more kick
  • 1 tsp Rosemary (I added this b/c you just need Rosemary on potatoes)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, and then some
  • Dash Salt
Cooking Directions:
In large bowl, pour olive oil over potatoes. Throw in garlic salt, paprika, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir to coat well. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, spray with Pam. Pour potatoes on tray. Bake at 425 for 20 min. Stir potatoes and add Parmesan cheese. Bake an additional 10 min, or until potatoes are done. Broil for 30 seconds to one minute. Sprinkle with extra cheese and salt as desired. Stir and serve.
