Saw It. Pinned It. Did It. TWICE!

In case you didn't guess by the title, this is a two-for-one post today! Can I get a woop woop?!

My first SPD was the Kiss Pies recipe!

I ran into issues right away with this one. When I went to the grocery store to get the ingredients, they only had regular kisses, not the mint ones (and the recipe had my heart set on mint!)!!  So, I decided to buy the dove chocolate mints and experiment that way.

I followed the directions from the pin, which were VERY simple! To make the circles, I used the opening of a cup like a cookie cutter.

I did change up the egg whites for a mixture of half butter half water that worked just as well.  I also used Truvia instead of sugar. I ended up liking this because Truvia is very coarse.

I baked at 350 degrees for 24 minutes.

Let them cool...

...and enjoy!

The Verdict: I'd give them a 7.5. The warm ones (when the chocolate was still melted) were much better and I think the cookie could have used more sugar. I think I will put the sugar coating on the pie crust BEFORE making the wonton shapes next time to spread the sugar out more evenly. 

My second pin/ SPD was inspired by J's Everyday Fashion!

I decided to mostly copy the middle look, but opted for cowboy boots instead of ankle booties, since I've worn my ankle booties twice this week, already.

{Sorry for the TERRIBLE lighting! This photo was snapped at 6:30 AM so we just used the overhead lighting in the foyer.}
