I made liege waffles and kept forgetting to take new pictures but here I am today with some more, and a substitution!
We were going to be going over one of the Fudgelet’s school friends’ houses and I wanted to bring a snack. My usual ideas wouldn’t work because the other boy has various allergies. Somehow I happened to think of cheese crackers. I hadn’t made them since I was dating K and still living in Maryland. The crackers tasted even better than I remembered and were worth the effort. But, as is the nature of toddlers, the other boy ended up not even having any. Haha! Ah well. The mom, Fudgelet, and I were big fans.
I’ve made crack pie before and it turned out fine, but I decided to make it again in honor of one of the math world’s most famous holidays…Pi Day. If so desired, you could make this for today…or make it just because. Although, if you haven’t started it yet, you are a bit behind since it should freeze for at least 3 hours, and then has to defrost. It’s a bit of a diva pie.
That’s right. It is early November and I am finally sharing what I learned from grilling this summer (for the first time). Haha. Well. Maybe you are still grilling it up, so here you go…if not, here are some thoughts for when spring comes.
Today’s post is not about a recipe for sugar cookies. Basically, I just used another blogger’s recipe which worked really well. This is more a “if I can do it, you can do it” post. I am horrible with decorating and making things look pretty. I’m not a big fashion person, home decorator, cake decorator, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to be that person. I see other people do it and am always impressed. Many of my friends are that way, which makes me both sad that I am not better, but also okay since I can always ask their advice. I am better at other things, and I am satisfied with that. Most of the time. Then there are times when I decide to stretch my limits. I am here to tell you to stretch your limits as well. You could surprise yourself with how good you are.
I get lots of requests for my chocolate chip cookies, but I still like to play around with the recipe. Sometimes I try completely new ones, and other times I take mine and tweak them. K had mentioned wanting the cookies to be a bit thicker and not spread as much. I also wanted to remove the ice cube part of my recipe because with my current fridge, getting ice cubes can be noisy. Usually I am making cookies during nap time, so I wanted a way of making the cookies in a quieter way. (Oddly enough, the mixer doesn’t usually wake the Fudgelet.)
K wants the cookies bigger the next time I make them, but I was keeping them smaller for my dad. You can do whatever size you like, just know that you will need to adjust the baking time. These cookies do not spread as much as the original recipe, so you can put them a bit closer together.
