Can I just say it is not easy to bake with a 2yr old….and on top of that her 5yr old brother who stayed home from school today…OYE! But, I got the job done!
Today I used http://joythebaker.com‘s recipe for Apple Pie Biscuits using http://www.kingarthurflour.com‘s Self Rising Flour for their #bakingbootcamp contest! This was so easy and yummy! You can find the recipe on her website along with details of the contest. I believe it ends within the next week or so.
I got asked to bake for a friends community group and thought this would be perfect! She said there are going to be kids there as well which is where the Snickerdoodles come into play!
Here’s a pic of the yummy biscuits…
The contest is to win a year supply of King Arthur Flour and some awesome Kitchen gadgets! Sooo I’m crossing my fingers on this one! I will let you all know how this pans out.
Now on to the Snickerdoodles..
These are always such a great cookie to have and I thought they would be perfect for the kids at my friends group, I mean who doesn’t like cinnamon and sugar?
1C butter, softened
1C granulated sugar
1/4 C brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
2 1/2tsp baking powder
2 1/2tsp cinnamon
1/4C granulated sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350. Line with parchment paper or grease a baking sheet. Mix together rolling sugar and set aside.
Cream together butter and sugars until nice and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla and mix well. In separate bowl mix together dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet slowly, mix well. Form 1in balls and fully cover in rolling sugar. Place in center of oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Should look slightly golden but may not seem done, don’t worry they firm up while they rest. Enjoy!
