Even though the temperature was in the 90’s yesterday I was in the mood to bake. First I made some English Muffin bread using this recipe. I’ve used this recipe, which actually comes from the Kitchenaid mixer cookbook, for years. It is so good toasted with butter and jam. My knitting neighbor brought me a jar of blueberry jam that she made so that was my breakfast. It was delicious!
Since I already had heated up the kitchen I figured I may as well make the cookies I’ve been thinking about. These are Drop Sand Tarts. The quick version of the recipe is : mix 3/4lbs of butter , 2C sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla until creamy and smooth. Sift together 3C flour and 3/4 tsp baking soda. Add to the first mixture. Drop by teaspoonful on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350f for 10 minutes or until delicately brown. They are so good with a cup of tea or an ice cold glass of milk.
Are you still doing your quarantine baking? What have you been making?
