SS Frosted Cookie Storage

Pumpkin Cookies

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350°.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars together at a high speed.  Add the egg, vanilla and pumpkin.  Turn the speed of mixing down and gradually add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder.  Stir in the pecans.

Using a cookie scoop, drop a tablespoonful of dough 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown.

(note: after 10 minutes, I removed from the oven and gently pressed the cookies flat with a flat spatula, otherwise the cookies are puffed like a pillow.  Bake for an additional 2 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.)  Let cool completely.

For the frosting, beat the butter and cream cheese.  Reduce speed to low and gradually add the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla.

Frost the cookies and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Sweet Stackers are a great way to store your baked goods in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent them from sticking together!

Appetizer, Anniversary and a Giveaway

This past week was my 2nd Anniversary for my PartyKitchen blog. Much is still the same in the past couple of years and some is exciting and new for me. I love to share my cooking and baking creations coming from my kitchen to yours. Plus, I still enjoy to entertain family and friends for all occasions from holidays to kid’s birthday parties. My girls are a couple of years older now and it is fun to get them more involved in the daily goings on in the kitchen. Hence there’s always a party in my kitchen.

The new and exciting part for me is to start a little business while staying home with my girls. Sweet Stackers was a solution to a problem that has frustrated me for years. Certain foods like appetizers, cookies and dessert bars can not be stacked without them sticking together, getting smudged or smushed.  It makes them hard to store in your pantry or fridge and difficult to transport to a party.  Sweet Stackers are reusable, stackable trays that allow you to maximize storage without food items touching each other in a container you already own.  For more information about Sweet Stackers, you can visit my website sweetstackers.com.  The website will explain details about the product, sizes available, where to buy them and ideas for the many different uses of these trays!

Need a perfect appetizer to serve for a game day or Superbowl party? Baked Potato Bites will be a huge hit! Make them ahead of time and transport them to a party. They are easy, can be served warm or cold and topped with your favorite baked potato toppings – like cheese, sour cream, bacon and chives.

Baked Potato Bites Appetizer

Baked Potato Bites

  • 8-10 petite gold potatoes, cut into ¼-½ inch slices
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 5 slices turkey bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
  • optional additional toppings (sour cream, chives, etc.)

Preheat oven to 425°.

Brush melted butter on foil covered cookie sheet.  Place sliced potatoes flat on cookie sheet and brush tops with additional melted butter.  Bake for 30 minutes.

Flip potatoes on cookie sheet and bake for 10 additional minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle the potatoes with cheese and bacon.  Bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Serve warm or refrigerate.  Top with additional toppings like sour cream and chives.  The perfect type of appetizer to store using Sweet Stackers stackable tray set in one container without messing up the toppings.

Now I wanted to do something special to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of PartyKitchen – a Sweet Stackers Giveaway!  One Sweet Stackers set includes 2 trays, 8 – .75 Inch Stackers and 4 – 1.25 Inch Stackers.  This allows you to have two or three layers of food in a typical 3 inch deep container.  The selected winner, must be located in the continental U.S., will have 3 days to respond and select which size Sweet Stackers tray set they would like to receive.  Good luck and a sincere thank you for following my PartyKitchen blog!!
