Well, it has been a couple of months since I last did a TWD post. Our sweet baby girl was born March 1st and the past two months have been a bit crazy at our house as we adjusted to life with a baby again.
We did our monthly TWD Dessert Night a few weeks ago and I chose to bring the Chockablock Cookies. When I read the recipe I was intrigued and wondered what these cookies would be like. I had high expectations and hoped they would be just fabulous, but ended up thinking they were just OK. I think that was the overall consensus of the group. I really love molasses but felt that the molasses flavor was far too strong. It was worth a try but these cookies won't be ones I will make again. If I'm going to make cookies, I'm making ones that I know will be a hit.
I wasn't going to be the one to post on these, but Liz is making her way across the country with her little family for a summer internship so I decided, last minute, to fill in for her. I didn't take any pictures because I wasn't going to post. So, if you really want pictures, head on over to Popsicles and Sandy Feet, where Mary has pictures and the full-recipe.

Well....I realize it has been a good long time since we have posted a Tuesday with Dorie. Some recipes have been made and not posted on. I guess life gets busy with new babies in most houses here on Celestial Confections and I really have no excuse other than life is still busy even without a baby in my life. Anyhow I am finally posting about a delicious recipe.
I think our home has been overloaded with treats lately so it was a nice change to make biscuits for my Tuesday with Dorie. I was shocked that these biscuits were so flaky and delicious even without butter. I suppose replacing butter and milk for heavy cream still allows for a good amount of fat and richness so the biscuit is bound to be good.
These were a cinch to throw together. Dare I say....just as easy as a mix, truly. Mix the dry ingredients...pour in the cream...blend with fork, roll out, cut in circles. Bake and enjoy! Holy easy and so tempting straight out of the oven.
I made our favorite honey butter recipe and together the combination was heavenly. The Honey butter recipe is from my good friend Susie whom I lived with in Arizona during my husbands internship. Here is the recipe for any who would like to try it out next time they make, biscuits, rolls, or bread.
2/3 c. butter, softened (10-11oz)
1 1/3 c. honey
Beat until fluffy
1 cup whipped, whipping cream
Shake in a little cinnamon
