Sometimes, we get in the mood to bake. Sometimes several of us want to do it at the same time.
What do we do? We DO it!
We take turns with the Kitchen Aid and the oven.
I wanted to try Cheryl's recipe for shortbread cookies. Vee tried them and liked them. I've not had good success with shortbread. These turned out well.
I hope they freeze well, because after tasting one, they went into the freezer for Sunday. They will go very well with a bit o' tea in the afternoon.
I also have been hungry for chocolate chip cookies. I almost didn't make them as I didn't have brown sugar and I am out of walnuts as well! I love walnuts in chocolate chip cookies!
I decided to do it anyway and just used white sugar in the amount for the white and brown sugar required in the Toll House recipe.
They turned out very well! Rachel says they taste a little different - more sugar cookie like, but I think they have great texture and taste like a chocolate chip cookie!
Lindsay is gluten free these days and is trying out tons of recipes. Tonight she wanted chocolate cake so she tried a flour less recipe!
It was so good! She made our chocolate frosting recipe and thinned it out but I think this cake would be better with just real whipped cream and some strawberry slices or a raspberry or two!
I am not sure why she sprinkled fall leaf sprinkles...but this flour less cake is wonderful!
I don't have the recipe she used but will get it and post it!
So, do you bake at home? What kinds of things do you like to bake? Are you a from scratch baker or a boxed mixed kind of baker?
