Mocha Frosted Cookies

5.31.16

Have you ever made something and after people ate them, they immediately had to have another? These are those cookies. I made these Mocha Frosted Cookies with my cooking guru Courtney over a year ago and as soon as I tasted one, I demanded the recipe.  They’re so soft (because of the cream cheese & sour cream), they basically melt in your mouth. And then there’s the frosting.  A mocha buttercream.  If you’re into coffee whatsoever, the hint of coffee in this frosting is perfect.  It’s subtle enough that you don’t have to be a coffee lover to enjoy it, but it’s even better if you are.  Taking this cookie and putting any frosting on it would be delicious because the cookie itself may be the total encompassment of perfection.

I love a challenge.  I love a delicious challenge even more.  So when a friend approached me and asked me to make a cake for our friend’s baby shower, I was excited. And then she pulled up a picture on Pinterest of the layer cake she had in mind.  I had never made anything like it. But game on. I brainstormed about the flavors I wanted, and ended up with a lemon cake, with blackberry compote, all topped with vanilla bean frosting.  The result was more than acceptable and the flavors were a perfect way to celebrate our friends’ future addition to their family.
