Easy Recipes

I have 2 great, very easy reipes for everyone. These are not originals by me (which I will also start sharing soon) but because food allergies add a little extra stress into our lives, I like to share whatever will make our lives just a little simpler.

One recipe is a remake of Hershey's Mini Kiss Peanut Blossoms (minus the peanut) and the other is a pudding recipe that I wish I could remember where I got it from so I could give them credit, but I can't.

Hershey's Mini Kiss PeanutLESS Blossoms
1/2 Cup shortening(can use dairy-free)
3/4 Cup Sunbutter, Soybutter or any other peanut butter alternative
1/3 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg OR egg replacer (Ener-G powdered works well also)
2 tbls. milk OR milk alternative
1 teas. vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cups flour (can use rice flour or alternative)
1 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. salt
Additional sugar for rolling
1 3/4 cups Hershey's mini kisses OR Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375. In a large bowl, beat shortening and peanut butter alternative until well blended. Add 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, mlik and vanilla; beat well. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add peanut butterLESS mixture, beating until well blended.

Shape into 1- inch balls. Roll in sugar, place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately place chocolates into the middle of the warm cookie, pressing lightly as not to crack the cookie.

Eat in mouthfuls  :)

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding
1 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
5 Tbls. cornstarch
1/4 teas. salt
3 Cups water
1 Tbls. butter (or dairy-free alternative or oil)
1 Teas. vanilla

Whisk together sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan on medium heat.

Add water, stirring with the whisk until well combined. Bring to a boil. Boil one minute, stirring contsantly to avoid burning or chunking. Remove from the heat.

Add butter (or alternative) and vanilla. Stir until completely mixed. Pudding should be thick and smooth. Pour into bowls or cups and let them cool at room temperature or in the fridge.

Again, not my recipe but OH, it's GOOD!!!  Enjoy!
