Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershy's Cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 package (10 oz) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips (optional)
Oven set at 350. Stir flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
With electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Slowly add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling).

Cool completely. For ice cream sandwiches, press a small scoop of vanilla ice cream between flat sides of two cookies. Eat as is or wrap them and freeze. 
If you don't have peanut butter chips, like me, crush 1 peanut butter cups into each scoop of ice cream and spread onto cookies and serve.


Crème Brûlée French toast

Oh, this was so good and easy!

3 eggs
1 tbsp of milk
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
9-10 pieces of bread (number varies on bread size)
caramel syrup
regular syrup

Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in milk, cinnamon and vanilla.
Over medium-low heat, heat griddle/skillet coated with a thin layer of butter.
Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl or plate, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.
Transfer bread slices to griddle/skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Serve with butter and a drizzle of Caramel syrup and regular syrup.


Fluffy Biscuits

ok, so everyone panics at some point right? I did with this recipe. I stirred in all the ingredients and it looked really wet for all the biscuit dough I've seen. I added flour. Don't do it!
There are many quirks to this recipe and they will be featured below the recipe!

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
2/3 cup milk

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg with milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead a few times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

So I used butter instead of shortening (because I don't have shortening) but the best way is to use half shortening half butter!
Also, don't knead them too much. Gently pat down and gently roll out.
Brush the top with butter, apparently it helps them rise!
