Lemon-Lime (Key Lime) Sugar Cookie Truffles July 6, 2012

My husband loves anything key lime.  We have tried it all including pie, cupcakes, and cookies.  I saw a pin on Pinterest for Key Lime truffles and knew I had to make them for my husband.   The recipe took a while to complete; however, the hands on time wasn’t too overwhelming.  I used a tube of Pillsbury cookie dough from the refrigerated section of my grocery store.  My daughter enjoyed helping with the sprinkles!  I’m happy to report that the key lime (aka lemon-lime sugar cookie) truffles turned out amazing.  Very sweet, but amazing!

Substitutions:  I made a few substitutions.  I used 1 block of cream cheese.  The recipe calls for 1 and 1/2 blocks, but I though that was too much.  Also, I used vanilla candy coating instead of white chocolate.

Time:  It’s hard to say because there were a few steps to this recipe.  I’d say a total of 40 minutes hands on time.  The cookie dough has to bake and cool and that took over an hour.

Boston Cream Cupcakes – Yum! June 2, 2012

These were the best thing I’ve made in a long long long time.  I almost ate all of them myself.  Now that I’m admitting to that, I realize that I should probably not make these again for a very very very long time.  You should make these yourself and find out how delicious and easy they are!

 

Steps:

1.)  Prepare yellow cupcakes according to box.

2.) Prepare filling.

3.)  Once cupcakes are cool, use 1/4 teaspoon to scoop out enough of the inside to fill the cupcakes.

 

 

4.)  Scoop filling into a ziploc bag or pastry bag and fill cupcakes.

5.)  Smooth the filling on the top of the cupcakes.

 

6.)  Prepare chocolate ganache.

7.)  Spoon ganache over cupcake and use the backside of the spoon to create a nice smooth topping.

 

8.)  Refrigerate and enjoy!

Substitutions:  The original recipe says to cut the cupcake in half.  I was worried the cupcakes would slide around, so I opted to use 1/4 teaspoon to scoop out the insides of the cupcake and then fill.
