Hiya, blue papayas!
Welcome back to the Makin’ it Blue craft corner where we take some of your favorite little day to day items and what do we do? Well, we teach you how to make it blue, of course! So, strap on your favorite blue apron, hit play on that Evita soundtrack, and get ready to check out this week’s fun collection of dessert recipes and start makin’ it blue!
Holy rigatoni! Did you guys know this existed? I certainly didn't. Thank the Gods that I discovered this magnificent recipe or we'd really be missing out on such a delicious blue concoction with little bits of starlight sprinkled on top.
What you need (yields about 2 dozen cookies):
2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 and 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
6 tbsp coconut oil
1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 and 1/2 tsp white vinegar
1 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Blue food coloring (preferably gel)
White chocolate chips
...And let's just throw in one more picture because they look so goooooood! I swear, cookies were meant to be blue.
Look how TASTY these look!!! The blue is very nice and subtle, which looks very cute if you ask me.
What you need:
1 cup Graham Crackers
1 2/3 cup Cream Cheese
3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
1 cup Double/Thickened Cream
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Bean Extract
Violet Gel Colour
Put your graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground.
Place one spoonful of the ground graham crackers into see-through cups
Using an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese, sugar, cream, and vanilla together until smooth
Add a squirt of violet gel coloring to the mixture and then continue to mix
Continue adding drops of gel and mixing until the mixture turns a nice light blue color
Pour the mixture into the cups so each one is filled about 3/4 of an inch from the top.
Chill for 1 hour
Place a raffaello on top of each glass if you so desire, and serve!
I had the great pleasure of catching Ms. Aimee Nightfall when she had a little bit of spare time and I got to ask her what her favorite blue thing was. I didn't limit it to food, though, because obviously, this world is full of so many things that are such a pretty blue! Here was her response:
"My favourite blue thing? Well... That must be that cocktail dress I got to wear for the New Year's party months ago. It was so shiny and gorgeous.. I wish I could just wear it every day.."
Ohhhhh and right she was! The dress is absolutely beautiful! She showed me a picture and just looks so pretty with all of the sparkles!
Soooooo much sugaaaaaar! Welp, that’s all for this week, folks. Be sure to pat yourself on the back for doing such a good job with putting yourself on a sugar high with this week’s pair of diabolical treats. Or, if you managed to burn down your kitchen or the food just turned out to be horrible, don’t sweat it! You tried something new. So, as per usual, time to dance after a job well (or burned to a crisp) done!
