A chocolate-chip cookie.

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)



  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 12 drops yellow food color
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 dozen (about) large semisweet chocolate chips



Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, food color, egg and cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Make 3 cuts with scissors in top of each ball about three-fourths of the way through to make 6 wedges. Spread wedges apart slightly to form flower petals (cookies will flatten as they bake). Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate chip in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cut balls from top into 6 wedges about 3/4 way through dough.

Be sure to choose 100% BPA-free products made from 100% pure food grade silicone. Cheaper brands often use plastic fillers. Fillers can compromise the quality and durability of silicone. You can test this yourself by doing the “pinch and twist” test. Just twist a bit of the silicone, if it turns whitish, it’s got plastic fillers. Pure silicone will retain its color. The Belgoods Bakeware silicone mini muffin pan will help you bake like a professional. Silicone pans are very convenient to store and won’t dent. More information can be found at
