Dnd Sugar Cookies??

Posted on

That’s right! What says “I’m a huge domestic nerd” more than roleplay confectionaries.

Dungeon and Dragons Cookie

Critical Yummyness

I wanted to make cookies for my Saturday dnd group which is just starting up and is a combination of new and super veteran players (and a few of us in the middle too). For those who are curious, we running Scales or War… no spoilers! So I wanted to make a treat but of course I also needed it to be low in calories so I could munch unconcernedly as we played. The recipe is from About.com.

Their recipe is 101 calories a cookie if you make a dozen. A little high on the calorie count for me so to counter that I just made smaller cookies! Using an awesome biscuit cutter my fiance bought me, I made 4 dozen cookies out of the same recipe 🙂 My cookies were just smaller and thinner (which also meant each batch only cookies for about 4 minutes). Then I whipped out me awesome and new Wilson Ultimate Decorating Set and iced the suckers in icing sugar. I did put a tiny bit of meringue powder in just to make sure the icing would be stiff when it dried. When all was said and done, each cookie came to approximately 55 calories a cookie. I’d still like to get it a bit lower, but they were nummy cookies and just so cute!

Hey All!!

Sorry for the hiatus in posting, life got hectic. But no excuses!! Now that my views are in the tens I better be a more responsible blogger 🙂

Today I wanna show you a super yummy little cookie that is so good when you need to fill a chocolate craving! The om nommie Mostaccioli

Low calorie cookies

Chocolate anyone?

I got this recipe way back when I started counting calories (like 4 weeks ago) from Delish. Click the link to get all the baking details. These cookies ended up being super simple to make and glazing them is super fun!! It’s more of a cake cookie and they freeze awesome. The pictures on the blog are actually of ones I had baked 2 weeks previously and stuck in the freezer. I don’t think you can even tell. You know, I am a big fan of freezing cookies! That way you don’t feel rushed to eat them all before they go stale and you have little treats in you freezer for whenever you need a pick me up 🙂

Low Calorie Cookies

Recognize the bird pick?

Enough about frozen cookies though. Each of these babies will set you back a measly 55 calories! Way better than reaching for that chocolate bar 🙂

And on the topic of calorie counting, I would just like to toot my own horn a bit and brag that I am now down 10 pounds since May 6th!! It’s amazing what being aware of my calorie intake has done for me, I definitely suggest that if you wanna lose weight in a slow and steady manner, try it out!
