Cookie Cups : UYW - #PearlandWilliam Installment 19

I know you'll look at these and no way. They are not pretty but man were they tasty. I thought of calling them poo in a cup but decided not to. This is how your food turns out when all your kitchen supplies are STILL in storage. Oh well, at least they tasted good and were appreciated by the family I gave them to.

Cookie Cups
chocolate chip cookie dough in a tube
8 oz cream cheese room temp
4 TBSP brown sugar
3 TBSP chocolate hazelnut spread
Spray a mini muffin pan and place a small dab/tsp of cookie dough in each section. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Push down the center and allow to  cool.
In a bowl with a mixer, blend cream cheese, brown sugar and chocolate spread. Place into a piping bag or ziploc bag with the corner cut off. Squirt into each cookie and store in the fridge. Drizzle with caramel or chocolate sauce or both!

Installment 1 :a love story

Cindy was continuing to read the diary, she rated it as one of the best books she had read. It was a compliment to her ancestors the simple life that they led that was full of faith and family.
She knew the thoughts in her head were borderline crazy. In many ways she envied their lifestyle. Cindy thought the diary earns a place on the top shelf, where she kept books she loved and read over and over. But with her poor grades last year, her "list" of good books would probably be discredited by one and all. 
Everyone was out for the afternoon and Cindy was home alone. She was enjoying the diary when she heard the car. Dillion's car. Yes, he pulled right up into the yard! WOW she was scared and thrilled at the same time. She saw him get out of the car, hot dang he looked good. He strutted over and propped up on the porch railing. "Hey gorgeous, what's up?"
She blushed and said "oh nothing you'd be interested in."
He said "you'd be surprised. Try me."
Do I dare she thought, oh why not, so she said " umm it's an old family diary, from my uh... Amish great great grandmother."
Dillion looked very uncomfortable. "oh yeah well... so where's the fam, they gone to town?"
"oh yeah, they left earlier."
"Cool" he paused, "so you wanna go for a ride or what?"
OH MY GOSH did he just ask HER out???? well, for a ride?!?!?!? Holy Fudge!
He started to walk away, "WAIT" oh dang that was too desperate sounding.
"Um.. where ya going so fast" she tried to sound cool.
He smiled and said "jump in and find out"
Oh man, this was stupid, dangerous, exciting and she was running across the yard.
As they sped down the highway Dillion looked over at Cindy and said "you're really cute ya know, too bad you're too young for me."
Feeling kinda devastated she wondered just why he had asked her to go riding if she was "too young."
He drove down to the river and shut the engine off. They sat in silence for awhile then he cleared his throat and said "your family used to be Amish?"
Really she thought, that's what you want to talk about? But she just nodded yes.
He looked out he window, cleared his throat again and said, "If you tell anyone I will swear you're lying, I was raised Amish and left home at 15 never to look back. I know it sounds crazy but once you leave you can never go back and your family is not allowed any contact with you. Its been 4 years..." his voice trailed off and he sounded so lost and sad. She really had no idea what to say so she sat in silence.
Then he laughed and said "bet you didn't see that comin' did ya?"
She laughed and said "no but that's a good one"
He looked serious again, "I wasn't kidding. I was Amish. I miss my Ma and Pa but not the rules, hard work, sweat. I love technology, electricity, running water and my car." with the last he grinned really big.
Whoa... he was serious. She thought back to what she had read, and asked "did you leave during or before your rumspringa time?"
He looked at her "I'm impressed, yes. Just as I was going into the rumspringa I went into town one night, dressed "English" and never went back. I had been thinking about it for a long time, like since I was 12."'s
They sat and talked for hours. She did not realize how long until it started getting dark. Panic set in. OMG her parents HAD to be back by now and they'd wonder where she was. If they found her with Dillion her dad would flip his wig! He would swear something was going on and have Dillion arrested. She wished something had been going on, but she was happy to sit with him and talk, listen to his Amish stories and just stare into his eyes. Wait..stop remember that it's late she chided herself and gathered her courage to tell Dillion they needed to go.
Before she had a chance to say she needed to go, the sheriff pulled up behind Dillion's car and flashed the blue lights. Fear, panic and absolute terror filled Cindy's heart.

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

    OMG...those cookies do look like poop...LOLOLOL...reminds me of the scene in American Wedding when he eats the dog poop...

  2. I absolutely love these installments. Usually, while writing my UYW, I wonder at least five times what you have in store for me. Another great addition. Ahhhh. Love. Yes, these cookies look quite interesting. Something tells me they're yummy. They'd be perfect for Halloween!

  6. You are telling a terrific story and I can't to get all caught up. I'm fascinated by what I've read so far. I hope she'll get out of trouble because that would be one interesting conversation. I love learning about their lives and how they live. I've always felt envious of them too.

  7. Dun, dun, dunnnnnn. I've been sprung with older boys before, it really does make parents flip out. I hope she doesn't lose her internet privileges because that was my punishment.

  8. OK, so let's recap.
    Starting off with yummy cookies that I can't have.
    Telling a story that abruptly ends with flashing blue lights.
    And I come to your blog every week because…?

  9. So you are going to continue as promised -- always anxious to read and see what happened and try to guess what is coming. Poo cookies are right up my sweet tooth alley
