I knew I could do it!!!!
Tim has a sensitivity to white flour,
so we try to use whole wheat as much as possible,
which is why I made these Snickerdoodles from 100 Days Of Real Food.
These cookies are 50% whole wheat.
Here's the fixins for these
Whole Wheat (50%) Snickerdoodles!
Ummmm, s'cuse me for a minute,
but my line-up of the fixins up there is wrong...
Public Service Announcement.....Cream of Tartar is NOT the same thing as baking powder.
I TOLD you I abhor baking!
Anyway, I caught my mistake and didn't let it slow me down with these whole wheat snickerdoodles.
I was determined to get these cookies made,
and made well!
Said Angie in her very
in her head,
So anyhoo, let's start with these exciting baking pictures!
Mix the dry stuff up together in a bowl and don't overstimulate your eyeballs on the massive colors taking place in that bowl...
Mix up the cinnamon and sugar
to use for later.....
Throw the eggs and butter and sugar in a bowl.
Try not to miss the bowl.
Okay. Because I SUCK at baking, I made sure to be organized,
and at this time I took a dishrag to the counter,
I put all the crap away,
I set out all my bowls in an organized manner.
I just knew I could finish this without dying of complete, utter,
I came prepared this time....
I cracked my knuckles for starters....
...and did some meditative poses with Tim...
IT COULD HAPPEN Negative Nancy, Doubting Thomas, Disbelieving Dave, Dream Crushing Deena, IT COULD HAPPEN!!!
Anyway, what did happen is I mixed all the wet
And then I threw the dry stuff in there.....
Then I took one of those things that makes perfect melon balls and grabbed some cookie dough...
Then I threw the cookie dough ball into the cinnamon and sugar...
Then I fell asleep from boredom.
Then I woke up cause the cats were trying to eat the cookie dough...
They weren't eating the cookie dough, geeezzzzzzz.
They were eating the butter that was left out.
Anyhoo, I managed to roll all of these beauties in the sugar and cinnamon....
...and I threw them in the oven for around
10-12 minutes and they came out like this.
or a magnifying glass,
they didn't look so bad, really...
But when they were put on the cooling rack,
they looked a little....mmmm, how shall I say...
So I made smaller cookies the next round and didn't cook them as long.....
And it worked!!
Remember these are 50% whole wheat!!
Go ahead, grab one!
They're in the freezer, in a baggie. They freeze AWESOME!!
Just take a cookie out quick and it thaws within a minute or two and is a delicious snack.
This is her new cookbook.
You've heard me talk about her website
It really is informative, approachable and fantabulous!
this is straight outta www.100daysofrealfood.com
Adapted from Joy of Cooking
1 cup wholewheat flour
1 cup allpurpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, softened (but not melted)
1¼ cups + 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and eggs together using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk or
beaters. Slowly add in the flour mixture until it's thoroughly mixed.
4. Use a 1 or 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop to form balls from the dough. Alternatively, you could roll the dough
between your hands to create balls.
5. Mix together the 3 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl and roll each dough ball around until
evenly coated. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes
So that's another chapter in
Angie's Life of Baking.
Pretty torturous but I made it through, thanks for caring :)
I LIKE cooking, man...it's just that baking is just too detailed and intense for my
Which is why I will be sharing two other cookie recipes I made this month.
