Nutella-Filled Shortbread Cookies

I thought these were fabulous! I made them for my son and he shared them with his midshipmen friends at the Naval Academy and they are his hands down favorite, upsurping (word?) his previous favorite english toffee chocolate chip. The recipe was putzy and took a while for me to encase the nutella. In the end, I made far less cookies than the batch said, and they didn't look the same as the picture, but rather like a marbled drop cookie. I didn't let them brown, but just took out and the texture was fine and to die for. Overall, takes a little more time to encase chocolate, but worth the effort for sure.

Cakespy: Nutella-Filled Shortbread Cookies

My son & his buddies at the Naval Academy voted this cookie the most unbelieveably delicious cookie; and said to make these from now on...not his favorite chocolate chip/english toffee cookies he loved for years. I thought they were amazing; although mine didn't look like the picture, but rather like a drop cookie with a little marbelization (even though I encased the nutella). The recipe didn't make that much, I didn't get nearly the amount it said and it was very putzy, trying to work with the sticky dough to encase the chocolate. HOWEVER, this recipe is a total winner! I will be making it again; and I will use Justin's next time. I saw that at my healthfood store!

Cakespy: Nutella-Filled Shortbread Cookies

If there's anything better than a deliciously crumbly shortbread cookie, it's one that is stuffed with rich, creamy, chocolate-and-hazelnut-laden Nutella. I'm tempted to deem these the perfect lunchbox treat for back-to-schoolers, but really they're the ideal mid-day pick me up for anyone. More

Sauced: Homemade Ketchup

Heinz has totally spoiled me. When Erin asked if I'd be interested in starting up this new "Sauced" column, I started racking my brain about what condiment to tackle first. I could think of nothing more fitting, more ubiquitous, than ketchup. You hardly ever stop to think about what goes into making ketchup. Usually, a bottle of Heinz is just hanging out in the fridge and, well, it tastes exactly the way it should. Is it even work making a version from scratch? More
