Thursdays: my one day off a week. My one day to have my oven turned on the entire day and bake until my kitchen looks like a bakery.

Why do I do this to myself? Well, this way I can get 3 months off for the summer. 3 months of making ice cream, travelling the world and spending days at home in my pajamas. Sounds like the dream.

But there are 3 more weeks of school left. And I am already planning on what to bake my students on the last day to celebrate. Luckily, none of my students have any allergies or food sensitivities, so I can go nuts with my ideas. Peanut butter chocolate chip cupcakes? Nutella filled cupcakes?

Or these white chocolate cheesecake cookie cups! With sprinkles to make it festive of course.

I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago, and gave some to my landlord to have someone other than myself as a taste tester.

She loved them! She told me that they are the best things that I have made for her. She even requested more, and I happily obliged. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing someone else enjoying a dessert I made. She said it is best with a cup of coffee.

Also, she complimented my efforts in making them look "rustic". Even though that was not what  was going for at all, I appreciate the compliment.
