I premixed the ingredients for these colorful cookies and intending to make them while on vacation. But after I made a large batch of these Chocolate Chip Cookies, we really didn't need others.
So, my co-workers got to enjoy these lovely cookies on a Monday morning!
This recipe comes together so quickly and makes a smaller batch of only 18-22 cookies. The perfect amount to keep around the house for a sweet treat.

I am a sucker for a frosted cookie. I mean, I can't think of anything that isn't better with a little frosting. Am I right?
These Orange Sugar Cookies with silky smooth Orange Cream Cheese Frosting are the bee's knees. They are so soft and chewy and the frosting...so good.
You must add these to your baking list. You will not be disappointed.

I've said this a number of times but I work with some pretty awesome people. And, when they have birthdays I like to make them a special birthday treat. They can pick anything.... well,as long as it doesn't cost me a ton of money or take 3 days to prepare.
This Chocolate Oreo Cake was for Raul's birthday. He's one of the designers in our marketing department. I don't know how he puts up with me, Alison and Laura for 40 hours a week, but he does. We all really work so well together and definitely all have a sense of humor. If you can't have fun at work, what's the point! That's my take on it.
We found this recipe on Lindsay's blog, Life, Love & Sugar. The cake looked amazing and the thought of a whole container of Oreo's in frosting was drool worthy.
The recipe turned out perfectly! I really love the chocolate cake and can see using this as a base for a lot of future cakes. The frosting is very rich which makes for a decadent dessert.
We all agreed that is was for sure a delicious cake, but next time I might opt for a Cool Whip/Oreo frosting to cut the sweetness down a notch and make it a little lighter. Maybe something like this or this.
But there is one thing I'm leaving out - while transporting this cake to work in my cupcake carrier with no lid (seriously, a food blogger that doesn't own a cake carrier - who am I?), it slipped out of my hand and landed on the parking lot floor. This is the first time I've ever dropped a finished dessert like this. Thankfully, only a section of the cake was exposed to the ground and I could salvage the remainder. It was pretty comical.
