By the closing of this last work week our family related plans all feel short. A major cooking holiday and all we have to do is hang around in our jammies and bake treats? Count me in!
Earlier this morning found Tami Numnums and myself in the kitchen. I purchased the ingredients a week ago and it’s taken me this long to get in to the kitchen and knock these suckers out. Cutting in butter or lard to a flour mixture correctly has always eluded me. I’ve had enough of that and it’s time that Biggles learn how to bake, and bake well enough to at least be edible.
The recipe came from The Joy of Cooking, added 1 cup of frozen blackberries. Not fricken bad for a first try, came out pretty well. However, 1 tablespoon of sugar was not nearly enough. I need to try this again and double it, see what that does. If I can get a little more sweetness in there, they’ll be perfect and ready to go in to daily if not weekly production. Easier to make than cookies!
