In my last post on baking, I said I would share the newest recipe I had tried from Joy Filled Eats. https://joyfilledeats.com/about/
I use this site the most for my baking recipes. I’ve shared a couple other sites on here as well. You can see them in past posts under yummy food. I always share these sites because I’m not a food blogger, and I really appreciate the work these women have done with these recipes. The first time through a recipe, I always follow the guidelines exactly. The second time, I might try something different to make the recipe work better for me. If so, I include what I found to be helpful when going through the recipe. I always share the link for the recipe in my post, along with pictures that I have taken of the finished product. I want you all to have the original recipe, and the nutrition information that you need. Plus, as a writer, I know I want to give credit where credit is due. And followers are always a great thing! 😉
Who doesn’t love cheesecake? When you put it with fruit and in a bite-size morsel it’s even better. This recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies is amazing! https://joyfilledeats.com/raspberry-cheesecake-cookies/ and pretty easy to make. I don’t do a lot of cookies because…well…they’re tedious to bake. I go for a bar any day. But this thumbprint cookie is easy to form, non-sticky, and just the right size for two bites. (Okay, a few were just one bite!)
In this recipe is a recipe link for sugar-free Strawberry Jam. https://joyfilledeats.com/fresh-strawberry-jam/ I made this jam with mixed berries, (just like the picture above), and I used this in the cookies. It’s wonderful! I can’t wait to try it on some toast…gluten-free of course! I’m also looking forward to trying these cookies again with the raspberry jam, or the caramel in the thumb-print cookies.
I wasn’t going to put the white chocolate drizzle on top. I was a little tired of baking by that point in time, but I melted some anyway. I don’t have a microwave, by choice. So, when I was melting the chocolate on the stovetop, I refilled my Singing Canary and let the chocolate get too hot. White chocolate seems to be a little more finicky in that area. Anyway, no drizzle was coming out of that mess! So, I just chopped it into little chunks and crumbled over the top. It still tastes delicious!
So, just a reminder. Don’t refill your Singing Canary glass when you are melting white chocolate on the stove. But if you do, and you haven’t burnt it beyond recognition, it can be redeemed in crumbles. These cookies are wonderful, and I’m going to say my new favorite cookie…until the next recipe. Thank you, Joy Filled Eats, for another great recipe!
P.S. Part one of this blog is Hot Baking. I have included information on the Singing Canary and other recipes in that post.
