KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! We are still busy over here with getting settled in. I know Ken and I will be utterly happy when we don't have to do anything extra to do...just a normal day-to-day routine plus our dates on the weekends. We will at least be on more of a schedule this coming week, as our kiddos start at their new school! And I've managed to get on a bit of a schedule with work, with just a few extra things on my to-do. I hope you all have a good weekend and enjoy some of my favorite links from the week. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back and relax. Image via Chevrons & Eclairs.

Molasses Snickerdoodle Cookies


I love traditional cookies during the holidays - sugar cookies, gingerbread men, snowball cookies. But last year I wound up with an extra bit of molasses. As I made one of my favorite cookies of all, the snickerdoodle, I thought why not? Like most of my what-the-hell experimental recipes, this one turned out so, so yummy and I'm already wanting to make more!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 & 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened (or shortening)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup molasses

Cinnamon Sugar Topping 
  • 3 tbs granulated sugar
  • 2 tbs ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  
  2. Combine dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, and spices in a separate bowl and give it a quick stir with a whisk.
  3. Cream butter (or shortening) with the sugar. Add in the vanilla, eggs, and molasses.
  4. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
  5. Combine your cinnamon sugar topping in a small bowl.
  6. Roll the dough into small 1" balls and roll into the cinnamon sugar. Bake on an un-greased baking sheet for about ten minutes.
Package them as holiday gifts with:  tin-tie bakery bags  +  red ribbon  +  Christmas gift tags
