Baking with Pintrest


So I’ve fallen back in love with cooking and baking.  Some may say I’m starting into the ‘nesting’ portion of my pregnancy but I hope it’s just me enjoying it again!  I found these two fun new recipes on Pintrest and thought I would share!  I’ve tried them both out and they are super yummy!  Enjoy!

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C. Flour                              1 1/4 C. Yellow Cake Mix

1/4 tsp Baking Soda         3/4 C. Butter, softened

1 Egg                                       1 Egg Yolk

2 tsp Vanilla                         1/2 C. Sugar

1/2 C. Brown Sugar           1 C. Chocolate Chips

1/3 C. Sprinkles


* In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda.
*In a separate bowl, beat together the butter, egg yolk, egg, and vanilla until slightly creamy.  Add the sugars and stir well.
* Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
*Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
*Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
*Preheat oven to 350.
*Remove the chilled dough and scoop rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. (Be sure to keep dough chilled if working in batches).
*Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges slightly browned and centers are set.  Let cool and Enjoy!!

No Bake Nutella Cheesecakes

For the Crust

12 Oreo Cookies, crushed into crumbs
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

For the Garnish

whipped topping, optional
chocolate shavings, optional
toasted, chopped hazelnuts, optional


*In a medium bowl, stir together the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.
*In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth. Add vanilla and mix to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.
*Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
*If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping, chocolate shavings, and/or toasted, chopped hazelnuts.
