Berry Walnut Banana Bread Posted on 5 Nov 06:00 , 5 comments

The Berry Walnut Banana Bread is a great recipe to make when you have fruit that would otherwise not get eaten. Whenever I have bananas that are starting to turn brown, I whip up this recipe, adding any berries I have in the refrigerator. I can then restock my fridge with fresh fruit after my weekly grocery run. That allows me to always have fresh berries and bananas on hand without worrying about throwing fruit away if it doesn't get eaten that week.

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies Posted on 25 Nov 12:14 , 10 comments

kate stoltz chocolate chip cookie recipeThis is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe with whipped cream cheese. The cream cheese adds a delicious texture and some of the best I have ever made so far. They are easy to make. The trick is to get them out of the oven just when the bottom is starting to brown- a little before the center is fully cooked.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, 1/2 cup white sugar, and salt. Set aside.
In small mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese and 1/2 cup white sugar until well blended.
In a separate medium mixing bowl, cream together the melted butter and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until creamy. Mix together ingredients of both bowls only until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Use cookie scoop or spoon and form cookies- cookies bake to about twice the size.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until right before the cookie is fully baked. The cookie will finish baking after you take it out of the oven. (Be careful not to overtake or undertake. This is the most important step to delicious cookies.) Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes then scoop onto wire rack or paper. Cool completely before packaging or plating. Enjoy! -Kate Stoltz
