Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies
http://kitchenkeepsake.webs.com/ I created the layout above. The challenge was to include red, pink, chocolate & hearts. Recently, I have been very inspired by my Grandma Kemper's cookbook that I inherited. The cookbook is partially handwritten & so in honor of Grandma Rosemond I wanted to include her original recipe even though I was adapting it to make it chocolate. I photographed the original recipe & edited it to include the chocolate adaptation & to note the sentimental value of the source.
As always, I adapted the recipe substituting a gluten free chocolate cake mix for the yellow one, low fat cream cheese & margarine. Even with these healthier substitutes these cookies are AMAZING! You can't eat just one. . . These little bite-sized cookies disappear 3 or 4 at a time!
