app of the week: chic feed.

One of my favorite discoveries of late is the app chicfeed. It aggregates images from some of the best fashion bloggers out there, with a simple finger swipe. Instantly chic solution for boredom.

For the cream cheese filling:
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature | 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature | 3½ cups powdered sugar | 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

2. Whisk together all dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl)

3. Beat together the butter, shortening and both sugars on low speed and add eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla and the red food coloring and beat until just blended. Add the flour mixture and buttermilk.

4. Use a melon ball cutter, or spoon, and drop dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
