Snickerdoodle Cookies

Do you love baking? Lol, I know I do. Even though I am not all that great at it. However, I still enjoy doing it and seldom will bake something whenever I’m bored lol. And so the other night I thought I would practice my baking skills by making these very delicious Soft & Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies while watching the Olympics.


Snickerdoodle Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup butter, melted 

1 1/4 cup sugar1 egg1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 C. flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Instructions


Preheat oven to 350

1. In your electric mixer cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Combine the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt and mix to combine.

2. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. The batter should not be sticky and should not be crumbly. If it is sticky, mix in flour one tablespoon at a time until it becomes not sticky. If the batter is crumbly, stir in water one teaspoon at a time until the dough holds together.

3. Combine cinnamon and sugar together and on a plate. Measure dough with a 1/4 cup measure and roll into balls. Roll each ball to coat well in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for twelve – fifteen minutes or until the center is set. Let cool 2 minutes then cool on a wire rack.

Rocky Road Milkshake

Do you love milkshakes? Lol, I know I do! They are one of the easiest and delectable desserts on the planet. You never need more than a few of ingredients, and they only take a few minutes to make. My preferred flavors are cookies and cream and chocolate.

However, I wanted to try the flavor Rocky Road. And since I recently learned from Google that National Rocky Road day is on June 2nd and understand that I’m somewhat late. I still wanted to honor this national food holiday by making a Rocky Road milkshake. And I am happy that I did because Rocky Road is my new favorite.

Here’s how to make your own.

 

Rocky Road milkshake

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp. Nestle Carnation Malted Milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 C. cup milk
2 C. rocky road ice cream

Optional:
toasted marshmallow sprinkles
Whipped cream
Chocolate syrup

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and or a milkshake maker and mix until the desired consistency is reached (only took about thirty seconds in my blender, but each mixer is a little different).

Not a huge rocky road enthusiast? No worries, the ice cream flavor can easily be changed out for any type you love…cookies and cream, strawberry, vanilla, mint chocolate chip, you name it. I have a strange feeling I’ll be experimenting with more than a few of these flavors over the summer. What about you?

And if you are milkshake fanatic, what’s your favorite flavor?

Satisfying your sweet-tooth

How many times have you had a sugar craving, only to find out that there’s nary a cookie nor a cupcake nor a candy bar in the house? Now that’s not always a bad thing, mind you…sometimes the only thing that prevents me from ingesting too much sugar is the fact that I made a point not to buy or make sweets in the first place. But other times, INeedSomethingSweetAndIneedItRightNOW! Hahaha! 😀 If you’re the same as me and feel like you need to cheat a little, then don’t I have a perfect solution for you 🙂

What is that you might ask??? I made a Snickerdoodle Mug Cake. It was very light and delicious. This Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Snickerdoodle Cake Mug

Ingredients

1/4 C + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C. milk, at room temperature
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For layering/topping:
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions

1. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl then add milk and vanilla and stir well. Set aside. In another small bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining.

2. Gradually mix flour mixture with milk butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is ready to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
