I have a whole bunch of baking I wanted to tackle today - I have desserts I need to take to events today, Friday and Sunday and I thought I'd knock them all out of the way today.

But we are out of butter.

I'm not sure how that happens. I buy 2lbs of butter almost weekly, and I can't keep it in our fridge!! It truly is a mystery - neither of us eats a lot of butter, and Judah eats none. We don't do massive amounts of baking either. I am confused.

Our butter just doesn't like us.

Oh well. Paul is getting off early today, and he said he'll buy me some more butter :) Such a sweet man!

Here's what I am making today:

Molasses Spice Cookies


Cream Cheese Brownies

The cookies I have made before and they are *so* yummy. I left out the raisins, and added a tad more spice. They were delicious! I made a double batch of them and formed the dough and then froze it. It worked just as well as the chocolate chips cookies do. Or should I say Paul's Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies :)

Oh - I bet that is where most of our butter goes to! His cookies. Ok, I feel somewhat dumb. Mystery solved!!
Anyways, he made more cookie dough on Sunday. We were all out of brown sugar, so I told him he could substitute white sugar with molasses for brown sugar. I think he thought I made it up, because he wouldn't believe me until I showed it to him in a cookbook. But it was there!! 1 cup of white sugar and 2 Tablespoons of molasses = 1 cup of brown sugar. So he tried that.
Then he had another hurdle with his precious cookies. In my thriftyness I bought bags of (Valentine) Hershey Kisses, because on clearance they were half the price of a bag of chocolate chips. I happily chopped them up for him, but I don't think he was too impressed.

Until they came out of the oven. The extra white sugar made the cookies go flat and chewy. *Amazing.* The chocolate, well, it was just chocolate. But Paul was quite amazed at the taste of the cookies. In his words:

"They aren't better, but they are just as good."

Ohhhh, those cream cheese brownies sound delicious!! I've never even heard of those!

I'm not much of a baker, but maybe I can get the hubby to whip some up for me :)

That's funny.

I looove butter, but a pound lasts us a while. I go through my organic virgin coconut oil really fast though!
