Pinterest...I don't just pin! #3

Black Licorice Caramels for Tyler's birthday. Even if you don't like Black Licorice you might like these, they were SO good.
I changed up the same recipe and made Coconut Caramels. Again, yummy.
I'll be making these again.
I found a recipe for sugar cookies that are as good, if not better than Lofthouse cookies, you know, the kind you find in the plastic containers that are frosted based on whatever holiday is closest. Anyway, really, really good. We made them for Activity Days too. I made them for Tyler's birthday as well, initially. I didn't have any powdered sugar to make the frosting and it was Sunday, so the store wasn't an option and I found out by googling that you can make your own powdered sugar! It's much cheaper, I will be doing this from now on.

Was this the cookie recipe you used? I pinned this one and wondered how it was: http://annies-eats.net/2011/07/18/soft-frosted-sugar-cookies/

Yes, that's the recipe! Try it, they are best if you cool them completely, frost them and seal them up until the next day. Allyson, as for the powdered sugar, it's not part of the recipe, but you put regular sugar, a few cups at a time, in the blender and pulse it until it is smooth. Taste it to check.

I wish I knew how to get on Pinterest just for the recipes. I haven't signed up for my own page yet, but I just want to see what everyone else is cooking. Or do I have to sign up to know that?
