Gingerbread Cookies. This is my favorite Gingerbread Cookie recipe! It makes perfectly soft and chewy cookies and they have the just the right amount of spices and rich molasses flavor. The dough is easy to work with and they are so fun to decorate. These will quickly become a new favorite holiday cookie! Share on Pinterest Gingerbread Cookies Gingerbread men are such a Christmas classic and it’s about time I finally got around to sharing a recipe!

I’ve always loved gingerbread cookies but I’m not so much of a fan of the cracker-like ones so I made these to be a slightly softer cookie. If you do prefer a crispier cookie just roll the dough a bit thinner than listed and even bake a little longer if needed. I made these cookies to be a little more mild on the molasses flavor so they’ll still be kid friendly. You’ll that the dough was easy to work with and doesn’t need a long time to chill. These are so good and definitely a cookie that both young and old alike will love! Share on Pinterest Share on Pinterest Print Icing. Sallys Baking Addiction Funfetti Sugar Cookie Cake. » Sallys Baking Addiction. The very best funfetti sugar cookie you’ll ever eat… and it’s the size of a cake! Top with thick vanilla-almond frosting and more sprinkles.

It’s my birthday in 15 days. Not like I’m counting down or anything. What? Is it just me or do birthdays need to be a month-long celebration? A month of sprinkles, presents, balloons, confetti, birthday cards, funfetti nail polish, and cake. Emphasis on the sprinkles and cake… I can’t even concentrate on what I’m supposed to be typing because I keep staring at these photos. Lucky for you (and not your pant size), this cake is dangerously easy. I’ve told you about the importance of weighing ingredients before. In terms of measuring your ingredients, it pays off to be a perfectionist. Not all flours are created the same. Mix the cookie dough up. You’ll also notice I add a touch of cornstarch. Press into a pie dish or cake pan and bake for only about 25-30 minutes. Once the cake has cooled, go ahead and frost. Have you ever seen a more perfect dessert?

15 minute Thin Mints (3 ingredients, no bake, vegan) Pressure. It’s something, I could probably avoid 90% of the time by not procrastinating the time away. I know I could avoid it, I know that future-Izy will hate past-Izy for not doing the work, yet I still find that sometimes, that ‘last minute pressure blast’ is the only way I can make myself work efficiently. But then there’s also that pressure that has no pin-pointable deadline when you know it’ll be over – can I call mine the mid-sixth-form-crisis? Suddenly, it’s all about the future, what the heck you’re doing with your life now, for reals – your A2 choices, extended essay title, positions of responsibility for next year, university courses.

A career. dijkfhgsdlf I just felt like I needed to pause time last week after thinking about that plus chemistry coursework plus biology coursework plus my deadline for my art coursework. aaaaand that’s why I’ve been a little absent recently!

I couldn’t help it – these doughnuts are INSANE. I don’t even know how to describe them. Somewhere between a traditional doughnut and a cake but with a glaze that tastes like melted ice cream.
