c is for cookie

these are the cookies i made for julia and jan's wedding. a double batch of snickerdoodles and a single batch of lime melt-aways.



my advice for the snickerdoodles is that you keep them in small balls like this and only cook them for 8 minutes. they will not go flat, if you do that. also, the best ratio for cinnamon/sugar is 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. i think it's just right that way.

and for these lime cookies, only cook them for 10 minutes, and i've made these three times and have never gotten close to getting more than about 50ish cookies out of the recipe. although it claims to make 10 dozen. i liked putting them in these paper cups, two at a time. cuts down the mess and it looks cuter. i couldn't find really small paper cups, but muffin sized ones worked well.

Hi Caroline,

I feel like we should be properly introduced. I'm Sarah. And in your ward. And now on the same committee for which I need to call you. And your baking looks divine. Makes me really really sad that I am allergic to this flour you use in everything. I just need to learn how to bake gluten free.

Nice to meet you.

Sarah

sarah,

didn't you go to the transformers movie at the drive-in, too? nice to meet you as well.

when i thought i had problems with flour, i used oat flour a lot and it's pretty good for most things. it's great in bread.

Sarita said...

Yep, that was me. I will try the oat flour post haste.

thanks for the little support on farrah's blog. I feel like I got misunderstood. I hesitate to post comments when things are a bit touchy, and that's why.

And...I totally stalk your blog. I don't even know how I found it, but I think it's fabulous. We should get together and bake sometime. I promise, I'm really nice. ;-)

i totally know what you mean. people need to "stop the hate".

yay, i love blog stalkers! i want blog stalkers galore. are there any other blog stalkers out there? please come forward. i keep thinking no one is looking at this thing and get ready to give up posting.

i'd love to get together to bake. seriously, i think about baking and food about 96.5% of the time.
