On the Sweet Side...

Shortbread Cookie Sandwiches with Fresh Strawberry Whipped Cream

Yes, I have become a BAKING MACHINE. And, while it may not be great for our guts, it's certainly a treat for our taste buds.

Here are some of the past week's baking adventures!

Above, Shortbread Cookie Sandwiches with Fresh Strawberry Whipped Cream, were easy, light and delicious.

The Cookies: Shortbread made with European Butter
The Filling: Fresh Whipped Cream with minced bits of fresh strawberries

And, they look VERY pretty with very little effort. Something we all can appreciate!

Raspberry Chiffon Pie

My personal favorite of my baking experiments, thus far.

The Crust: Flaky Butter Crust
The Bottom layer: Homemade raspberry jam
The Middle layer: Cream cheese combined with raspberry preserves and Jell-O©
The Top layer: Fresh cream whipped with sugar

Soooo, delicious. I just have to toot (Toot, toot!) my own horn here.

Peanut Butter Cream Pie w/Chocolate-Coated Rice Crispie© Crust

The Crust: Rice Crispies© coated with semi-sweet chocolate and butter
The Filling: Creme Cheese, condensed milk, peanut butter, and fresh whipped creme
The Decorative Topping: Milk Chocolate and Heavy Creme

Well, this was awesome. But, I was so effin' stuffed after a delicious meal, thanks to addROC and Reid, it was hard to really enjoy this pie. But, addROC and I did bring home the leftovers, so, hopefully tonight, dinner will be a little lighter!
