Snickerdoodles and Scones...

Once again, washed out pictures, but.... Have you ever made Snickerdoodles? They aren't the fanciest; but they are easy, and fun if you like to bake with your kids... (I am starting to let the kids take over here...) :p Actually this whole plate was made by the fifteen year old and the four year old (with me helping). I was looking through my recipes and couldn't find my recipe for Snickerdoodles from my mom. So I googled. The recipe I used is here. Here is one using butter (this one has pop-ups, fyi...) instead of shortening. And did you know you could make them with colored sugars, too? I have been in the mood to make scones lately, too. (Don't ask why, when it is ninety degrees outside, do I want to bake???) I loooooove Wendy's Chocolate Chip Scones recipe. But... I don't have any mini-chocolate chips. Or whipping cream, for that matter. I do have a can of pumpkin though. So I was thinking about making these pumpkin scones. Here's another recipe for pumpkin scones, too. Yummy.

Here is something I have finished recently. A knitted (gasp) dishcloth. It's a dragonfly. The color is super washed out, it's actually orange. Well that's all for now folks.

I love knitting those kinds of dishcloths..nice job! I actually don't think there is a cookie out there that I DON'T like. I always search out the cookie table at weddings!!!! Snickerdoodles look delicious!

Thanks for stopping by Lucy! I like making these dishcloths every now and then.
Uh, no. I haven't met any cookies I don't like, either. :D Hee hee. Unless it has nuts in it-- I am allergic to some nuts... Snickerdoodles are easy and inexpensive for ingredients. The ones I made I used shortening in, I didn't even have to use up any of my butter. :D
