Kitchen Aids

My two kitchen "Aids":
Aidan and the KitchenAid.
Couldn't manage without them!

It's still cold enough in the Sierra Mountains to bake spice cookies, so that is what we did last night.

This is my teenager's favorite cookie recipe:

5 cups flour
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

1. 5 cups butter, softened
2.5 cups brown sugar
0.5 cup molasses
2 eggs

a small amount of white sugar to roll the dough in.

Blend in ingredients, form into balls of about 1 tbsp (we make them a bit bigger than that), roll them in white sugar and flatten them onto lightly greased baking sheet. Cook at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes (more time if you like them to be crispier)

LOL - my Emma saw your picture and said, "Can Mrs. Willa make some more of those cookies?"

Yummy! :-) Adian is adorable.

Willa said...

LOL, Beate! Just drop by next time you are in CA : ).

Thank you Steph. Yes, I think he is much cuter than the Kitchen Aid though a bit less predictable.

Emma commented on his cuteness as well ;-) Then she sighed and said: "But I'm still going to marry Mathew," whom she designated as her future dh over 2 years ago when she wasn't even 3!!
