Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!


Soft Gingerbread Pudding Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate


Soft and flavorful gingerbread cookies, dipped in white chocolate. This recipe is wonderful for two types of eaters. First, for people who enjoy gingerbread but don't love rock hard cookies. Second, for folks that think they'd enjoy gingerbread if it were perhaps a little more mellow of a flavor.

This recipe is both soft and mellow, but it still has enough of that wonderful gingerbread flavor a lot of us crave around Christmas. I find this recipe to be great for kids as well, they love the flavor and the fact that it is dipped in chocolate.


I had originally planned to dip half of the batch in white chocolate and the other half in semi-sweet, but I melted too much white chocolate from the get go. So instead of wasting it, I just went ahead and dipped the entire batch of cookies in white. Gingerbread goes really well with milk chocolate or semi-sweet, so be sure to try that out sometime.


I found this recipe at the website SNAP! Many thanks to them for this winner of a recipe. Enjoy!

Print Friendly Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 c. butter softened
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar packed
  • 1 3.4 oz.pkg. butterscotch instant pudding
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Optional: 1 Tablespoon milk - add to the dough if it is too crumbly/dry and mix
  • White Chocolate Glaze:
  • 1 cup white chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp. shortening
Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, dry pudding mix and egg in a large bowl until well blended.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients Slowly add ingredients from secondary bowl to the butter mixture. Refrigerate for at least one hour or until dough is firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F. Roll dough out on a floured work surface to 1/4-1/2-inch thick. Use cookie cutters to shape cookies. Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 min. or until edges are lightly brown.
  4. To prepare glaze: Combine the white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave, 10 seconds at a time, stirring between every heating. For me this took about 40 seconds overall, but microwaves vary. If the chocolate gets hard or has a very strange texture, it has gotten too hot and seized. If this happens, you will need to start over.
