What's For Dinner Wednesday

For the record I did NOT serve this for dinner, but we are delivering quite a few of them to friends tomorrow as our Love 'Em Up daily task.  With so many friends texting and emailing photos of snow, snow and more snow I figure you must not run out of coffee, wine and sugar.  Or maybe that's just me....

Funfetti Cookie Cakes

3/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box funfetti cake mix, dry
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2-3 teaspoons sprinkles
1 cup white chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar with a mixer
Add the egg and vanilla and mix well
Add the sprinkles, cake mix, and cornstarch and mix.  The dough will be REALLY sticky.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
**Here is the important part:  wrap the dough in plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight.**

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease your pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
We used a heart shaped pan, but any cake pan will do.
Spread the dough out and back for 25-30 minutes until the outside is golden brown.
The center will have a fudgy texture and the outside will be crisp.

We iced our as Mini K never misses a chance to use the frosting gun as she calls it.  They are now wrapped in cello with bows waiting to be delivered after school tomorrow.

I have been working on the back office of the website tonight when I was interrupted by tiny footsteps. My favorite little boy had a bad dream and since little ones don't stay little forever, a snuggle and hug from Baby C wins over blogging and the site tonight!

But I will leave you with one of my spring favorites, coming to the Grove!
