Cinnamon Date Scones

I made these scones for a goodbye brunch for some of the girls in Meridian a while ago. They were flavorful without being too strong, soft without being too chewy, but also not crumbly. Very good! Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 3 Tablespoons sugar 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons cold

Simply Delicious, Soft, Chewy Snickerdoodles

Or, how I got this… …from this: And all I have to say is OH, YUM! I don’t know if I ever tried a snickerdoodle before the MOPS craft show. But the chaplain’s kids had a booth selling crocheted things and baked goods, and the guy bought some snickerdoodles from them. Oh my goodness, were

Chocolate Dark-Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are amazingly rich and delicious, almost like a brownie, but with the fluffiness of a muffin.

Grape Pie – believe it or not!

A little bit ago, I got on a serious fruit kick. And one day, I went to the grocery store and I swear I bought out their produce section. Which led to a lot of very happy fruit consumption, but it also led to some fruit looking a little sad by the time I got

How to make Flaky Pastry Pie Crust – Step by Step with Photos

I’ve posted a few times about things cooked in pie crusts: Tomato pie, Tomato Pie Again, and Zucchini Quiche. And I promise there will be more. So I figured it was about time to make a pie crust tutorial. I think if my mother-in-law hadn’t shown me how it’s done, I wouldn’t be so good

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins

There seems to be quite a doughnut trend going on over at Tastespotting, and several people posted their versions of these delicious-looking doughnut muffins. So I decided to make my own version!
