the betty crocker in me.

we had our home group this week and we usually all sign up to contribute to the meal. this time i chose to bring dessert. i have more dessert recipes piling up on my pinterest than i do actual main courses so i thought i would give two of them a try. the first; nutella cookies and the second; sopapilla cheesecake. they were both delicious and both easy to make so i thought i'd share.

nutella cookies

1 cup Nutella
½ cups Sugar
1 cup All-purpose Flour*
1 whole Egg

*to accomodate our host, i chose to make them gluten-free so i went with with red mill instead of flour.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Blend all ingedients together well.

Form into 1″ balls. Place on a cookie sheet. Press down firmly with the bottom of a glass. Bake 7-8 minutes or until set. Cool.

sopapilla cheesecake

3 cans pillsbury butter crescent rolls
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter (melted)
Cinnamon & sugar

Unrolled and spread 1 & 1/2 can crescent rolls on bottom of un-greased pan. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.

Spread mixture over crescent rolls.

Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture. Spread melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
i had to make enough for around 20 people so i made them on 2 separate cookie sheets and then after they had cooled for a bit, cut them up into more bite size pieces. and from what i heard, they went over well!

hope you enjoy! happy baking!!

p.s. this is what happens in my kitchen after making 2 desserts...
