Speaking of aprons, I recently completed an apron that my daughter and I had been working on. I wish I had a photo of her wearing it, but she seems to be a moving target this time of year. The machine embroidery designs are from Anita GoodDesign's "Tween Cutie" collection.
What to do, what to do? No brown sugar? Yes, can you believe it my daughter needed to take cookies to school, but when I went to the pantry there was no brown sugar. Of course I could have added molasses to the white sugar or even gone to the store, but as I was looking in the pantry I remembered a recipe for Melt In Your Mouth Sugar Cookies that I had made in the past. These cookies were so wonderful they truly melted in your mouth. So off I went to my recipe files. The cookies were so yummy. I thought I would share the recipe with my blogger friends.
Melt In Your Mouth Sugar Cookies
preheat oven to 375 degrees
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup white sugar
ADD TO SUGAR MIXTURE AND MIX UNTIL LIGHT:
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable oil
1 t vanilla
SIFT AND ADD:
4 cups + 4 t flour
1 t soda
1 t salt
1 t cream of tarter
Chill for 1 hour (I chill the dough in the freezer if I'm in a hurry).
Form the chilled dough into balls, roll in sugar, and then press with the bottom of a glass.
Bake 10 min., give or take depending on desired doneness.
I've been working on an ETSY shop, it is all set up, but I'm not quite ready to share. I need to add to my inventory. I can't decide if I should specialize in one type of item or offer up a variety of things. I would love suggestions. I hope to have it ready to share next week.
Thought I'd share a pic of my little ones on Easter.
Fancy that, cookies, aprons, and kiddos, what could be better!!!
