Sometimes the only fix for a sweet tooth is chocolate. I suppose, on rare occasion, chocolate desserts and sweets are not the answer to every single problem we face (should this happen to you frequently, consult a doctor immediately). For me though, I tend to go towards chocolate desserts more than fruity ones. This post is no exception to my chocolate rule. I wanted to make something chocolaty, rich, and delicious, preferably in a portable cake mode. Oh, but I didn’t want all those calories to go along with it.
In general, I’m a fan of soft cookies over crunchy cookies. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before. Anyway, soft, fluffy cookies are just delightful. I am not generally a fan of fruit in cookies. However, this cookie may be a delicious exception. This cookie is a great mixture of soft, cake-like texture and a nice pop of blueberry. Oh, did I mention it has a cream cheese glaze? There’s that too.
Cold, snowy weather always puts me in the mood to bake. There is just something about baking while watching the snow fall that brings me joy. It’s a bonus that it’s the holiday season, and I love baking during Christmastime. So, since it’s snowy and cold, I decided to bake today. I wasn’t planning on baking today, so I didn’t have a whole lot of ingredients to work with. I didn’t really want to drive to the store in the windy snow. So, I decided to make something I’ve been drooling over for a couple weeks now, a low calorie chocolate cake.
This post is going to be best friends with The Best Soft Sugar Cookies from yesterday. In my opinion, sugar cookies need frosting. Now, frostings can be tricky. Some are far too sweet. Certain frostings taste too much like confectioner’s sugar. Some don’t hold up well. I have spent a lot of effort in finding the perfect sugar cookie frosting. And boy did I find it.
I am the soft cookie’s biggest fan. I love soft, chewy cookies. I prefer soft cookies far more often than crunchy cookies. There is just something about biting into a soft cookie and having it melt in your mouth. I have already posted about some other cookies this month, but there is one classic cookie recipe that I have not yet shared. Just in time for the holiday baking season: the best soft sugar cookies.
