Baking Time: Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another fun baking time ^^. Instead of beauty reviews, today i'll share you a fun and yummy cookies. Finally i get my time to try to make Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies >< (Sorry for being MIA this past weeks, im in holiday and lazy mood ><, will back active again soon)

Its my first time trying this recipe from Picky Palate, i'm not 100% following the recipe there, like i don't use the brown sugar because i forgot to buy it when im doing the groceries *-* and i use more flour because its kinda too liquid and sticky *-*.

Here's the recipe,

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients
  • 2 sticks (226 grams) softened butter
  • 3/4 Cup (165 grams) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
  • 3 1/2 Cups (437 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 oz bag chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Oreo Cookies
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo Cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!

Since i dont use the brown sugar, it turn out not as brown as the original one, but still taste good ><. Just, follow your heart >< lol








Happy holiday and Ied Mubarak everyone ^^. See you soon!! ><

My Favorite Youtube Beauty Gurus

Hello hello!! Today i'll share where i learn and get to know into this beauty world through youtube. They're maybe not the most popular beauty gurus there, but i really enjoy and always wait what they're uploading next.  Actually i learn makeup from watching their videos, and i learn pretty much things related to beauty from there,and lets get started!

Nayoung Kim (Oiseau88)
You probably already know her right? >< i've been watching her video since the very first time. She's so pretty and smart, and also kind. ^^ I learn makeup from watching her videos, cause her video was the first makeup tutorial that i've ever watch. Cause im interest in korean makeup and she's like to use some korean brand, and pretty helpful for a new comer on makeup world like me, xD


And she's also has a great sense of fashion, which i like too, and usually upload it under account styleOshop .


Angel (beautifymeeh)
She's an MUA, so pretty too *-*, i pretty much always have a fun time watching all her videos, whether its beauty related or non beauty related. And i really love how she's filming her video, sooo my style. At first, i'm really not too aware with US makeup brand, but cause i watch her video and she always use US brand on her tutorial, so i get interest in another makeup brand beside the brand from korea >< lol



Jenn (frmheadtotoe)

Hover (roseddalki)

Innisfree Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream No.2 Natural Beige

Im back with a review of BB Cream from Innisfree, which is Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream. Like i said, actually i want buy the purple version or pink one, but they're more expensive than this, and i never tried bb cream range from innisfree, so i decided to buy the cheaper one first, lol (what an excuse xD)

Innisfree Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream
with green tea | SPF 25/PA++
Content: 50ml
Shade: 2. Natural Beige


"Enriched with green tea from pure Jeju Island. Eco natural BB matches your individual skintone"







This BB Cream has:
  • Moist-rich water occurs naturally express feeling: 40% moisture content
  • Moisture BB Cream with green tea extract: organic Jeju green tea 100% contained
  • Smooth skin covering
  • SPF 25/PA++



Packaging:
Well, quite nice, cause it come out with a pump-type. but the pump somehow a lil bit annoying. At first i thought the pump didn't work, i need to pumped it a few time until it work, and with just one pump, we already got so much amount of this bb cream. I think its hard to maintain how much bb cream we want to use with this type of tube.


How to apply:
After applying your skin care regime, apply a primer prior to applying the BB Cream. Apply 1-2 layers depending on your needs and blend it in your skin. Wait 2-3 minutes for oxidation for a more natural coloring than apply a thin layer of powder to set your makeup.

i compare it with my other daily bb cream that i use often

Texture, Shade & Coverage:
Its more like liquid than cream, and its very light and easy to apply. even i think this shade a lil bit too dark than my Klair's but after some time its really matches our own skintone. Like i said, its very light, and the coverage also very light, very very light.

Scent:
DONT EVER IMAGINE IF THIS BB CREAM HAS GREEN TEA SCENT ON IT, cause it dont *-*. Just smell like another normal bb cream out there :(

---

What I Like:
# Lightweight, suitable for daily use
# It contain 100% natural ingredients so great and safe for daily uses xD

What I Dislike:
# the pump dont work really good
# need concealer to conceal the imperfection
# only has SPF 25/PA++ too little
# dont have green tea scent like i expected T.T

Price:
Depend on where you buy this, i bought mine around 189IDR or near $19.8

Since it has natural ingredients, so im feeling safe to use this as daily base, but i do still love the Klair's BB Cream ><. BUT, this type of packaging already discontinued, cause Innisfree make an upgraded of this BB Cream with SPF 29/PA++ with tube type and more cheaper cause it only contains 40ml, hoho.

Hope this helpful! ^^

XOXO.
