Sweets for Alpha Chi’s!

When my friend and fellow AXO alum Jenn signed on to make cookies for 80 collegiate sisters, I immediately figured she could use my help. I wish I had more time to give throughout the year, but this was the perfect opportunity for me to give a little bit of something I can do quite well. I made a couple different things, but definitely the big accomplishment was the mint-chocolate cookies, dunked in chocolate and piped with a red and green lyre – our sorority logo. I made these cookies about a year ago and had been waiting for an opportunity to make them again, and this was just right. I added the chocolate ganache coating for a little more flair. Though time consuming to dip and decorate all of the cookies, it was definitely worth my time – I love how these turned out!

    Yummy! The cookies look delicious. I’ve enjoyed your blog for a while (silently). I’ve been meaning to tell you that your cauliflower “rice” has changed my life. I love it!!I haven’t figured out how to preserve it. I thought I’d save time a do a whole head of cauliflower at once but found that it didn’t freeze well. I just put it into a container raw – it turned mushy. And, what I stored in the fridge did not hold up well past 1 day. Any tips? Or is this just one of those foods that’s best eaten on the day you prepare it?

    Hi Jonella, Thanks for the kind words! To be honest, I have never tried to save any cauli “rice”. We are always able to finish it all in one sitting! What if you grated all of the cauliflower to save time, but then cooked only what you needed and saved the rest of it raw, either refrigerated or frozen? And then steam the next portion as needed?

    Hi Cara! I’ve also silently followed your blog for a while :) One of my favorite things I’ve made of yours was the pumpkin penne – your idea for the cottage cheese/milk puree instead of heavy cream is pure genius! I was so impressed that it turned out perfectly. These cookies are so beautiful – I can’t believe the are homemade!
