I love frozen treats and so do my kids! I however hate how expensive they are and how fast it adds up when its hot outside with three kids.  I was excited to have the chance to review these Silicone Ice Pops.  The idea and concept behind them are eextremelysimple and easy. Plus you can grab them -> here for only $9.95 on Amazon!! 

Silicone Ice Pops Description: 

  • Easily make healthy and delicious frozen treats. With our super tight fitting lids, you’re free to lay them on their sides or stand them lid side down. Whatever works best for you! Our unique design makes the molds firmer, easier for kids to hold and easier to clean.
  • Set of 6 fun and vibrant colors. They come in red, green, yellow, orange, purple and blue – each with a matching lid. Both kids and adults will have fun using them. The clever conical shape lets you drink the last drops without the melted mess or drips.
  • The molds are flexible, reusable & dishwasher safe. No more throwing away wooden popsicle sticks. You can also save the leftovers by popping on the lid and throwing it back in the freezer for later.
  • Premium quality, BPA free silicone which meets all FDA standards, so you can rest assured they’re safe for you and your family. Each mold is 8 inches long and holds 3.4 fl oz (1/2 cup) and the slim design saves freezer space.

 

Silicone Ice Pops in Freezer

 Now do they work as well they sound??  Yes and I am hooked!!! 

  • The seal on the lid is easy to achieve and even filled with Crystal Light water they did not spill when I laid them on the counter, flipped them upside down, or even when i gave a squeeze.
  • Dishwasher safe!! Huge plus these fit right on the top rack.  I did also run the lids through our silverware holder.
  • No trash from Otter Pop wrappers or from Popsicle sticks. 
  • I can make them low sugar for the kids 
  • The kids can make them!!
  • They can go anywhere in my freezer!! It is always full from different things and I love these are slender enough to slide were ever i can find a spot for them! 

Now we have only made a couple of different things.   I made some Weight Watcher ice pops for me using Crystal Light with energy and it was perfect little snack while I was working and it had a caffeine kick! The kids have made frozen yogurt pops (with our Yoplait light yogurt which is Weight Watcher friendly), and Jolly Rancher ice pops.  Michael has loved having Key Lime Pie ice pops after school for snack!!

Iced Lemon Butter Cookies


Iced Lemon Butter Cookies
Disclaimer I was given a Zester Grater for reviewing purposes.  No monetary compensation was given and all opinions are mine and truthful to the experiences in my kitchen. The links in this post are affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link

I was excited at the chance to review -> Zester Grater. We have been trying to expand our baking and cooking skills this year and this was one kitchen equipment I didn’t have.   I do have a huge normal cheese grater but to do lemon zest its Recently I have discovered how much I like lemon desserts now (See my WW 1 Point Lemon Muffins) These Iced Lemon Butter Cookies are amazing!  The dough was interesting to make and the first cookie recipe I haven’t just thrown in my Kitchen aid mixer but actually followed the delicate steps. I found this recipe on A Taste of Meaghans Kitchen, and didn’t do much to adapt it cause I have never made a cookie like this and am super pleased with how it turned out.  Make sure you pay attention to freezer in the directions I did the fridge. 

Zester and grater review

 

The Zester Grater came fast from Amazon with my prime two day shipping.  It had very minimal packaging around it leaving hardly any trash.  Since my kids cook with me on a daily basis safety is a huge key in our kitchen.  I love that this comes with a plastic cover to hep protect our fingers when reaching into the drawer and also to help keep the grater sharp.  The handle is easy to hold in your hands, I even had my daughter hold the handle while I zested the lemon. She thought it was neat how it made a “shredded cheese” of the lemon.  Make sure you stop once you hit the white of the lemon and also that you wash the lemon well before zesting. 

The only thing I would change about these cookies is putting the dough in the freezer not the fridge (Special moment reading the directions) and also I would do the cinnamon roll icing (Find recipe -> here)

Iced Lemon Butter Cookies Ingredients :

Ingredients For The Cookies:

  • 1 cup & 2 tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Zest, finely grated
  • 7 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, cut into 1/4″ cubes
  • 1 Egg Yolk

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Lemon Juice, fresh

Iced Lemon Butter Cookies Icing

Iced Lemon Butter Cookies Directions :

  • Combine the flour, sugar, and lemon zest in a large bowl.  Add add in the chilled butter and cut it into the flour with a pastry cutter, it will look like coarse crumbs.   Then add in the egg yolk with a fork till it’s fairly well blended.  Because my dough was so dry and would not knead together I had to had 4 tablespoons of ice water to the dough before I could form a ball and have it come together well.   I did this a half table spoon at a time.
  • Cut the dough ball into half and roll each half into a log of about 1 inch diameter and then wrap them in plastic wrap.  Place in the freezer (NOT THE FRIDGE) for about 30 minutes.
  • Once chilling is done pre heat oven to 350 and remove logs and slice into 1/4 inch rounds with a serrated knife.   Place on baking sheet with paper (I skipped the paper they turned out fine) for about 10-12 minutes.  Allow them to cool before glazing. 
  • To make the icing we squeezed lemon juice out of hte lemons we grated.   Mix 3 tablespons of fresh lemon juice with 1 cup of powdered sugar, till well mixed.  I used a spoon to drizzle over the cookies or you can use a piping bag
