Baking...

Well it is not the heat of the season, it is me trying to bake cookies.
For those that know me, my talents are limited...
Sewing and I are not friends,
Cooking and I have issues,
Walking and talking are difficult,
And
Now I can add baking!
I am working on refreshments for my son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor next Sunday.
He did a difficult Eagle project so I figured the least I could do would be to bake cookies.
(Here is were I blame the altitude...right!)
I have spent the last three days baking and now I am hoping some of these cookies are edible.
I did followed the directions to the letter!?!
These look so good!  I borrowed this photo from Pinterest and now will be trying these.
Out of the 10 batches I have made I am hoping that about half will look and taste presentable!
The rejects have been taste tested and we are still alive that is a good thing!
Wish me luck today in the kitchen, and does practice really make perfect?
Enjoy your day,
Barb

  2. So sweet of you to make treats for your son's Scout event. I had a lot of baking fails at 7300 ft. It took many fails to finally make my beloved buttermilk biscuits! (self rising flour was the main trick I learned on that one, plus 25% less baking soda/powder, otherwise they were tasteless or hockey pucks.) This site is very helpful! Have you checked it out yet?

    It has adjustments you can make for different elevations.

  12. LOL Barb, I can relate! And yes, the altitude does indeed make a difference in recipes, I was having a similar conversation with my Mom and Aunt a couple of days ago. Good luck with the baking and I'm sure that they will taste wonderful :O) Deb
