What a fun day it has been! I started in the kitchen at 9:30 this morning. At 1:00 I finally sat down after the baking was done and the kitchen was cleaned up.
First I baked Biscotti… but used maple flavoring instead of anise or almond. (it’s called use what you have) They are quite tasty and different than anything I have made or eaten. Steve says they passed the taste test!
Then I made No Roll Sugar Cookies made with Bisquick. I was intrigued with the idea of using Bisquick, and had exactly enough. I also liked the fact that I could just roll them in balls, flatten with a glass and bake. Easy. And good too! I wont frost them because then they are way too sweet. These also passed the Steve taste test.
Next was coffeecake. I was going to wait till tomorrow to make it, but figured since I already had all the ingredients on the counter I would just “git er done”. I used Suzanne’s recipe from her blog.
WoW! It is SO yummy. And easy. I highly recommend it. I had to sit down and try a piece while the pies were baking.
And last….. Steve’s pumpkin pies. It is now officially Christmas for him since there is pumpkin pie on the counter. 🙂
Now I think I will relax in my chair, have another cup of coffee and read my book The Secret Life of Bees.
Enjoy your day!
