All of the awesome flavors you're keen on from the normal Boston Cream Pie are became a cookie cup. they're quick to form , starting with a ready-mix and taste delicious. Everyone will go crazy for these little cuties.

Traditionally it boasts a yellow or cake with custard filling and chocolate ganache {or icing} is poured over the highest. But it's often because the Boston Cream Pie wont to be baked in pie tins. within the youth of baking, that's all that they had to use.


The cookie base is ready-mix , a stick of softened butter and two eggs. employing a hand mixer to mix the ingredients makes it quick but you'll mix them together by hand.

The cookie bites will got to be refrigerated. Once crammed with the vanilla cream, it's necessary. If you're serving them at a celebration , they will sit out at temperature , just make certain to not leave them out for quite a few of hours.


Cookie Cup:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter {softened}
  • 1 box yellow cake mix

Homemade Whipped Cream:

  • 1 3.25 oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 2 tbsp semi-sweet baking chips
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Cookie Cups:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare mini muffin pan by spraying each cup with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour yellow cake mix into a medium bowl and whisk {or sift} to remove any lumps.  Add softened butter and eggs to the cake mix and combine with a hand held mixer {or by hand} until dough is thick and sticky.  Using a small cookie scoop {or 1/2 tbsp.}, put a mound of cookie dough into each muffin cup.  Using your fingers, go back and press the mound of dough down to create a level cookie.  Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately take a off set spatula or knife and run it around the edge of each cookie to release it from the pan.  Once cooled, go back and use a tart shaper {or end of a wooden spoon} to press middle of cookie down and create a indentation.  Move cookies to cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Vanilla Cream:

  1. In a medium bowl combine instant vanilla pudding mix, heavy cream and milk. Using a mixer {or whisk}, incorporate ingredients until the mixture is thick and has stiff peaks. Move vanilla cream to a pastry bag {or Ziploc bag} and pipe a generous amount of cream into each cookie indention.

Chocolate Ganache:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl combine heavy cream and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Microwave for 20 seconds and whisk. If you get silky and smooth consistency then you are finished. If not, you need to add 10 second increments until you do. Spoon a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of ganache onto the top of each cookie cup. Refrigerate until the ganache is set and serve.

This recipe for cinnamon bun sugar cookies is straightforward to form and can have you ever looking sort of a total baking rocker. You won’t believe how delicious these cookies are!

This dessert combines two of my favorite sweet treats — cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies. I mean, does it get any better than that? I feel not!


Sometimes taking two goodies and mixing them into one doesn’t quite compute. during this case, I’m happy to report that combining the flavour of cinnamon rolls and cookies clothed better than expected! These cinnamon and sugar cookies are so good!

The texture is nearly cake-like and is super soft and delicious. Then it’s topped with a luscious cheese frosting and a touch sprinkle of cinnamon. Pure heaven!

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

I love making these Everything Parmesan Crisps as a low-carb snack, to feature to Caesar salad in situ of croutons, with soup, or an excellent addition to any charcuterie board as an appetizer.

They are very easy to form , the trick is using fresh grated parmesan cheese, pre-grated won’t always work. And since I’m hooked in to Everything Bagel Seasoning, like these Everything Flatbreads and these Air Fryer Eggs they're the right snack!


Since Parmesan cheese has enough sodium on it’s own, using pre-made Everything Seasoning would make them too salty, so I made my very own (it’s so easy!). i actually think you’ll love them the maximum amount as we do!

Parmesan Crisps are easy to form . Shred the cheese with a box grater. Place a silpat or piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Then, add heaping tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese to the baking sheet, spreading them out slightly in order that they are a touch lacey. Confim there's enough space between all in order that they don’t melt together into one big clump. To season, partially bake, then add the seasoning in order that they stick the the cheese without burning, then put them back within the oven a couple of more minutes. This recipe makes 4 crisps, double or triple to form more for sharing.



  • 3/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon  minced dried onion flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon  minced dried garlic flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon  poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, not pre-grated using the large holes of a box grater


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Pour 2 tablespoon of grated cheese onto a silicone lined baking sheet (highly recommended for this) and lightly pat down with your fingers to make about 4 inches round.
  3. Repeat 3 more times with remaining cheese, leaving 1/2-inch space in between each circle.
  4. Bake 3 minutes, until almost done.
  5. Combine the sesame seeds, onion, garlic and poppy seeds in a small bowl.
  6. Top each with 3/4 teaspoon.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool before eating.

Fried Wonton Strips cook up deliciously crispy and that they are a cinch to form. Only 2 ingredients needed: wonton or eggroll wrappers and oil.

They taste a bit like the crunchy strips you're served at the most Asian restaurants. There's nothing just like the texture and crunch of wonton strips and that they are very easy to form reception . They create an excellent snack or serve them with soup or salad.


Really the sole difference (I think) between wonton wrappers and egg rolls wrappers is that the size, wonton wrappers being smaller. You ought to be ready to find them within the refrigerated section or your grocery , usually near the tofu.

The wrappers are easy to chop into strips with a knife or a Pizza Wheel. You'll cut them into any size strip you would like . I prefer to chop the spring roll wrappers in half, stack a bunch, and cut them into strips about 1/2 to 3/4-inch wide.



  • 1 package egg roll or wonton wrappers you will probably only use half
  • vegetable canola, or peanut oil


  1. Cut wrappers into strips about 3/4-inch by 3 inches long. You can stack them to do this quickly. If using egg roll wrappers, you will want to cut them in half first and then into strips.
  2. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large pan or Dutch oven. You want the oil to be around 360 degrees. Fry in batches, spreading them out so they don't stick. Remove with a slotted spoon when they turn golden brown.
  3. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.

Sweet and tender chunks of shrimp on a bed of crunchy fried wontons, these Shrimp Wonton Chips make the right appetizer or snack. 

If you're trying to find something easy to place together and a crowd pleaser, these Shrimp Wonton Chips are just the thing you have been trying to find . They're AMAZING and addictive! They're extra light and crunchy round the edges with mild and tender shrimp throughout. And therefore the scallion provides a pop of color also as a touch bite.


There are six simple ingredients within the shrimp filling: shrimp (duh), scallion, ground ginger, egg, salt and pepper. And what I LOOOVE about these shrimp chips there's no stuffing and no sealing of the wonton edges none of that mumbo jumbo. All you've to try to to is brush the wonton with the beaten egg and spread on the shrimp filling. 

The hardest and time-consuming part is that the frying and that is even a bit of cake since these babies take but 2 minutes to cook up. They're placed within the hot oil, shrimp side up and fried until rock bottom turns golden. Then they're flipped, shrimp side down, to end frying. This part literally takes 15 seconds!


  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. ginger powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lb. shelled raw shrimp, finely chopped and dried
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion, greens only
  • 36 wonton wraps
  • Vegetable or corn oil for frying
  1. Preheat a large skillet with 1-inch deep oil on medium heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, scallion, salt, pepper, ginger, and one egg. 
  3. Beat the second egg in a small bowl. Brush and even layer of the beaten egg over the surface of 12 wontons. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the shrimp filling on each wonton. 
  4. Carefully place a few wontons, shrimp side up, into the hot oil (3 or 4 wontons. Do not crowd). Cook until the bottom is golden, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. If your wontons cook too fast or take to long to fry up, adjust heat accordingly. Flip wontons over and fry for about 15 seconds to finish cooking the shrimp. Remove wonton chips to a drying rack or paper towel lined sheet pan. Repeat frying the remaining wontons.
  5. Continue assembling and frying wontons in batches of 12. Serve.
  6. Makes 36 wonton chips.
