Picnic Desserts Recipes:
I cannot think of a better all-around dessert for any type of picnic than cookies. Cookies are easy to make, easy to transport, and easy to eat – and they are absolutely delicious to boot. These picnic desserts recipes will show you how to make three different yet equally tasty types of cookies.
Picnic Desserts Recipes: Neapolitan Cookie Mix
If you like Neapolitan ice cream – chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry – then you will love these cookies. We are essentially going to use one recipe for three different flavors of cookie, with only the flavors changing. I will give you the formula for the chocolate cookies; all you have to do is replace the cake mix with vanilla cake mix and strawberry cake mix for the second and third batches.
You will need:
– 1 box of chocolate devil’s food cake mix (Betty Crocker is recommended)
– ¾ cup of vegetable oil
– 2 large eggs
– Granulated sugar (or confectioners’ sugar)
These cookies are pretty easy to make. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cake mix, oil, and eggs together and beat until batter is formed. Then, roll the batter into balls about 1 to 2 inches in diameter, then roll them in the sugar. I recommend putting a little sugar on your hands before doing this too. Then, bake for 9-11 minutes. I also recommend greasing the cookie sheet before use. Just let them cool and there you are!
Picnic Desserts Recipes: Peanut Butter Paradise Cookies
I do not know many people who do not like peanut butter cookies. Here is a nice and simple recipe for some great peanut butter cookies for your next picnic. You will need:
– ½ cup of softened butter
– ½ cup of shortening
– 2/3 cup of light brown sugar (packed)
– 2 ½ cups of flour
– 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
– 1 cup of sugar
– 1 ¾ cups of peanut butter
– ¼ to ½ cup of white chocolate chips (depending on how many you want)
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– 2 eggs, standard size
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, mix together the peanut butter, shortening, and butter in a bowl. Crack the eggs and beat them in a separate bowl, then add those to the main bowl. We will call this the wet bowl. In another bowl, you will take the dry ingredients (including the white chocolate chips) and mix them all together. When you have done this, mix the dry bowl into the wet bowl. Roll up the batter in balls about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter and press a floured fork into the ball to flatten them out (press crosswise). You will want to bake these cookies for at least 9 minutes, or until the cookies are nice and brown.
Picnic Desserts Recipes: Cocolemon Cookies
This final recipe will make any picnic taste better, with a unique combination of lemon and coconut. You will need:
– 1 cup of shortening
– 2 cups of sugar (white)
– 1/3 cup of lemon juice
– ½ cup of water
– 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar
– 3 cups of flour
– ½ cup of coconut
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the shortening and soften it by beating it for 30-40 seconds. Then, include the sugar and beat the mixture until it is fluffy. At this time, take the water and add the lemon juice to it in a separate bowl or glass. You will want to do the same for the dry ingredients. In an alternating fashion, mix the wet ingredients into the mixture, then the dry ingredients, and so on and so forth until they are fully mixed. Then, just take spoonfuls of mixture and place them on cookie sheets. Bake them for 9-11 minutes, cool, and enjoy!
