Wow, I have had such a crazy busy couple of weeks, but I actually have been at work in the kitchen as well, just have not had time to post! So, a couple of weekends ago I tried out the Snickerdoodle recipe in Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind, and here goes!
These are just great! Excellent texture and flavor (especially from her trademark browned butter!) You will want to be sure to chill the dough as mentioned or you will have a sticky mess!
But that is no trouble, just cover with plastic wrap like she says and pop in the freezer, you will be glad you did!
These are quick and easy….and here is my tip…cook them for the minimum time! I decided to let the first batch go a couple of extra minutes because I did not think they had browned enough. Don’t panic! they didn’t burn! They looked fine, but the flavor turned a bit with the extra time in the oven, took on a slightly burnt flavor…not bad, just toasty! Anyway, the next batch I did for less time, and they are SPOT ON!!! One other tip, give these babies plenty of room on the cookie sheet! They spread! (As you can tell on the pic below, mine got very cozy in the oven….had to pull them apart.)…DARN! You know the rule! Got to eat the “ugly” ones!!! haha!
So these are a keeper….another keeper!!! More to come here on the blog this morning, I finally have a few minutes and quite a few to post! Lucky YOU!!!
AND…If you are in the Houston area this weekend, Vanessa Barajas (Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind) and Juli Bauer will be signing their books at the Brazos Bookstore here in town on Sunday, October 4th at 5:00 pm….hope to see you there!!! I will be there! Wonder if you can pick me out of a crowd???)
Back to work! Kristen
