My Own Bake-off Begins
For as talented as Hunni is cooking is not one of his skills. But he is very talented at assisting and tasting. And since this weekend is our first bake sale to raise some money for kids to go to camp this summer the day of The Pillsbury Bake-off was the perfect day to start prepping.
First I got out of the office today to make a trip to BJ’s. We don’t have a ton of baking stuff at the church and we are planning a bunch so I had to go by the basics.
Don’t mind the dog treats in the picture. We have to bribe Peanut and Leo to leave us alone while we bake or they’ll go nuts.
They just stare at us hoping for a treat. Hunni kind of stares at me the same way if I don’t let him be the taste tester. 😀
On tonight’s agenda was making the dough for some cookies and baking some brownies. I cheated with the brownies though. I don’t have time to make fancy brownies in the short time frame so I came across these…
What can I say they looked great and /were easy. I’m only one woman. But I did print off a ton of other recipes to try this week. At our bakes sales last year we had some requests. Apparently people around here love whoopie pies, oatmeal raisin cookies and Peanut butter cookies. I’ll happy to make PB cookies since my Mother-in-law left this behind…
I think it was her subtle hint to me to make Hunni some PB fudge since there was a jar of Fluff left with it. But Hunni and I don’t normally eat this stuff so into the cookies it went. I also made up the dough for the oatmeal raisin and double chocolate chip that I can bake off on Thursday while I sit in my office. Who wouldn’t want to work in their office while they smell great cookies in our oven.
I’m also prepared to make diabetic treats with my ladies group on Wednesday…
My women are diabetic and so are a lot of people in my community so we are baking with Splenda this week. I’ll spend my afternoon googling diabetic treats tomorrow. Until then I’m doing arm curls with 10lbs of sugar in on arm and 1.5 pounds of Splenda in the other. Hey the bag says the equal cup for cup…I guess they didn’t mean weight 🙂
I might or might not have tasted a bit too much of the dough for quality control and now I’ll be sick on the couch for the evening. Darn sugar addiction.
Any ideas on how to avoid “taste testing” all my other recipes this week?
