Instructions from Cookingchanneltv.com:

 Ingredients

  • 1  tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 (9-ounce) package artichoke hearts, defrosted, rinsed and dried
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, excess liquid squeezed out.
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) Neufchatel cheese (reduced-fat cream cheese)
  • 2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • Pita wedges or crudites, for serving

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until onions are light golden but not browned. Remove from heat and cool.

In the bowl of a food processor combine artichoke hearts, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, Neufchatel, mozzarella and salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Add cooled onion-garlic mixture to the food processor and pulse a few times to combine.

Transfer mixture into an 8-inch glass square baking dish or 9-inch glass pie plate which has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with pita wedges or crudites.

recipe

Here’s the how-to from Recipe Girl:

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of salted butter softened – (*TIP: use non-store brand butter and make sure it’s softened, not melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with red/green sparkling sugar

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.

2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the final ingredient (the powdered sugar + the colored sugar). Use an electric mixer to combine until well mixed. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheets.

3. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool COMPLETELY before you remove them from the baking sheets. If you don’t let them cool completely, they will crumble easily. Be patient.  :)

4. Roll cooled cookies in the sparkling powdered sugar mixture. Store cookies at room temperature in a covered container for up to three days. Or store in the freezer in a covered container for up to 30 days.
