Friday Finds

I warned you last week that I felt I had a "sweets" Friday Finds coming on.  Well, here it is.  If I make one of these a week, I will be good for several weeks.

Six Sisters Stuff

Oh I am in trouble finding this one.  All the ooey-gooeyness of cinnamon rolls without all the effort.  I would make this weekly if it didn't contribute to an ever-expanding waist.  Fortunately I do have coworkers that I can foist sweets on (share sweets with).

Shaken Together

A no-bake cheesecake atop a shortbread cookie crust served up in little nut cups.  What a great idea for a party and a great summer dessert.  These use Girl Scout cookies, but any shortbread cookie or even vanilla wafers could be used.

Raising 4 Princesses

With this recipe I can have my Cadbury fix all year long.  This is a new-to-me blog from a mother raising 4 little girls in Jamaica.  Can't wait to get back to look around some more.

Somewhere in the Middle

I really like making bar cookies, and here are snickerdoodles in bar form.  What a great idea. The blogger says she's pretty much in love.  I think I will be too.

Vanessa's Values

This is a granola bar with basic, everyday ingredients that I have on hand all the time.  This makes 10 to 12 bars, and the ingredients can be varied according to individual tastes.


Peanut butter and jam nestled between layers of oatmeal cookie dough.  This could be made with any jam or jelly and probably with other nut butters also.  I would be doubling the recipe.

Jamie Cooks It Up

A white cake with a topping similar to that found on German Chocolate Cake.  This is a nice departure from the norm.

Making Memories with Your Kids

This is your basic cream cheese/powdered sugar cream candy recipe, but what a great idea to use raspberry extract as the flavoring.  I must find me some raspberry extract.

Well, I found many more sweets that I could include here.  However, I have probably put you all in a sugar coma so will save some to sprinkle throughout future Friday Finds.  I am linking up to Friday Favorite Finds at Finding Joy in My Kitchen.  Hop on over to see what other bloggers have found this week.  I am sure that there will be posts with much healthier recipes than you found here.
