First of all, welcome to my new followers! I love coming to read your blogs too!
I am a lady who doesn't like to bake. One of my friends was very surprised when she found this out. Apparently I send out an 'I-like-baking' vibe. Things have started to change lately, and I am enjoying it more! I think i figured out what I don't like about it in this process. It's flour. It's too messy! I think if I had a pretty kitchen-aid like this one in my home someday, I would feel differently.
Ah, to dream.
Anyways, I did do some baking when I was home for thanksgiving. I made salted caramel apple cookies! And they were so delicious! I found the recipe here.
Salted Caramel Apple Cookies:
1 3/4 quarters cup of flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
Set aside dry ingredients.
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature, well beaten with fork
1/2 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1 cup raisins (I did cranberries!)
1 and half cups chopped apple
First, mix the dry ingredients all together in a pretty red bowl (i suppose you don't have to do it in a red bowl).
2. Cream butter and brown sugar together in another pretty red bowl. Add beaten egg, oatmeal and fruit.
(I cut the apples this size)
Add bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well.
Drop from teaspoon on to greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
I forgot to take pictures of the finished product. I know, I know, the best part I forgot to take pictures of. But don't worry! Go take a look at the pretty pictures of these delicious cookies at Echoes of Laughter blog.
