Random Eats


1 egg
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk ...
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
16 chewy caramels, unwrapped (like KRAFT)
3 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate pieces
1 teaspoon shortening

Separate egg; place yolk and white in separate bowls. Cover and chill egg white until needed. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add sugar and beat well. Beat in egg yolk, milk, and vanilla.
In another bowl stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until well combined. Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap
and chill for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a small saucepan heat and stir caramels, vanilla and whipping cream
over low heat until mixture is smooth. Set aside.
Slightly beat reserved egg white. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in egg white, then in pecans to coat.
Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet.
Using the back of a 1/2 teaspoon round measuring spoon, make an indentation in the center of each cookie.
Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are firm. If cookie centers puff during baking (which they most likely will), repress with your measuring spoon. Spoon melted caramel mixture into indentations of cookies using a teaspoon.
Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool. (If necessary, reheat caramel mixture to keep it spoonable.)
In another saucepan heat and stir chocolate pieces and shortening over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Let cool slightly. Drizzle chocolate mixture over tops of cookies using a fork and a quick back and forth motion as the chocolate drips.
Let stand until chocolate is set. Makes 36 cookies.

A Review of D&K by Mariposa Urbana
D & K (Delphine Publications Presents) (Paperback)
5.0 out of 5 stars

Well done, Mariposa! I really enjoyed reading this. I wanted Kim to have it all, but then I felt like she was really materialistic. In the beginning she was really hesitant to accept gifts or anything from Dyce, but as time went on all he had to do was buy her something and all was well & forgiven. Speaking of Dyce, he's to old to still be trying to build an illegal empire. He puts Kim through hell for no apparent reason at all! I expected so much more from him, but if course he's stuck in his ways. I can't understand how he patiently courted Kim until she turned 18 and didn't mess around with anyone, but once he had her and they were a couple he decides to cheat! Was it just the thrill of the chase? I live the tale Mariposa has told and I could see it as a TV series (because I don't want it to end), but in the meantime I'm patiently waiting for the sequel because that "to be continued" came out of nowhere and left me hanging.
