Pinspiration Friday

Pinspiration Friday

I am very excited to announce that I will be doing a weekly post on Pinterest projects, crafts, recipes and more! Here is a little bit about how this all came together…

Last night I was on another Pinterest binge. If you visit my profile, you will see that I have weeks, sometimes months, of inactivity. Then there will be a 2-5 hour block of mass amounts of pins. Then no activity again. Pinterest is one of those things that I just don’t utilize enough, definitely need in my life, and always forget its there. Kind of like my daily planner and to do list… but that’s a different story. So, back to my binge last night..

I came across this recipe for ‘meltaway cookies‘ and saw that it only had four ingredients. Ingredients I actually had! And since I love cookies, and I love to bake {really easy things as you can tell}, and baby was asleep, I decided to try these out. Whilst making them I got super excited and couldn’t wait for them to finish! {I may or may not have eaten a few spoonfuls of the dough…} Then I got this brilliant idea to make this Pinterest thing a weekly post. Each week I will attempt a project I pinned on PInterest to my ‘Pinspiration Friday‘ board and will blog about it each Friday linking back to the original source. I will share photos of my finished project, craft, recipe… and maybe even some process ones too.

The ‘Meltaway Cookies‘ turned out amazing! The original post called for some homemade cream cheese frosting, but we were low on frosting. I decided to drizzle the cookies in salted caramel. Wow. Amazing! Here are Landee’s cookies..

And here are mine..

They seriously melted in my mouth when I ate them. Errr, I mean when I ate one….

It kind of reminds me of the delicious crust on lemon bars in really good bakeries

Salted Caramel Goodness!

Nixing the cream cheese frosting was the best thing I ever did! Im sure it tastes delicious with the frosting, but the salted caramel is the perfect touch. And no, I certainly didn’t make the caramel sauce by scratch {it was 11 p.m. when I started baking these}, but we had some caramel sauce left over from our caramel apple night so I put it in the microwave to soften it, drizzled it on top of the cookie, then put a dash of sea salt on top.

Amazing! You HAVE to try these!

Check back next week for a new project for Pinspiration Friday!

{Have a Pinterest project that you did and wanna share? Let me know! If I get enough people, I’ll make this a weekly link up!}

  1. I think i need to take some blogging lessons from you! everything is always so fancy and put together and my posts look like the most boring thing you could imagine! For example how do you make your lovely headlines with pictures and designs like the Pinterest one for this post! its lovely! *sigh*
