I’m Baaaack!! So I had some technical difficulties with WordPress, for a couple months 🤨 I did keep going with the baking challenges but I didn’t get to post them in a timely manner.
I also was not able to comment or “like” most of the blogs I follow, so I am so sorry that I have been absent for so long 😔 But I will be trying to make it up to all of you!
So, now I must take you back to Christmas time for this baking challenge. 🎄Sorry!
Sally’s challenge for December was to make homemade butter cookies. I think many of you will remember these as spritz cookies. They are usually made with a special piece of culinary equipment that, quite frankly, never work! Fortunatley, Sally did not make us buy this antiquated piece of crap 😂
Since this was a rather simple recipe, the dough came together rather quickly
The most important part of combining the ingredients is the addition of the milk. The piping consistency of this dough is important. It needs to be thin enough to move through the piping tip, but thick enough to hold the shape after piping. So, add the milk a tablespoon at a time.
I used the largest tip that I had and, after chilling the dough for several hours, piped them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
These were baked at 350F for 15 minutes.
These were cooled, and then I decided to dip them into melted chocolate and added sprinkles
They were buttery, and full of almond and vanilla flavor! 😋
So happy to be back online with you all!!!
