don`t ask, but it`s Like a cookie with cinamon in it, I got the recipe when I was about 8 years old, in a recipe book done by kids for kids in Calgary Canada, I Still have the recipe book and it`s Still about the only thing I Can bake without error (yet).

Snickerdoodles are a real comfort food for me, here is one recipe

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

Topping:

2 T. sugar
2 t. ground cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter until fluffy. Add eggs, beat well. COmbine dry ingredients: add to creamed mixture and beat well. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into walnut sized ball, roll in sugar/cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies will puff up and flatten as they bake, yield 5 dozen.

As usual, I use all whole wheat pastry flour for these cookies, no white flour. Just part of my rationalization for eating cookies . Oh, and these go well with a cold glass of milk

While I love cake and other dessert type baking, this time of year I love to bake bread. I'll start on Friday night, and get up 4am on Saturday to pull the dough out of the fridge for a final rise...and then bake it at 7 to have with breakfast.

Brioche or cinnamon rolls are the house favourite!

As a disclaimer....I probably should have checked the 'I love to do everything' box.

I've never made brioche... What does it taste like and how easy is it to make?

I like baking pies, so I checked "other". I like to make cakes, too, though...and muffins are fun.

Brioche is a bit like challah or other 'egg' bread with the addition of lots of butter, anywhere from 1/2 cup to 2 cups. 2 cups yields a bread that is almost cake like.

It takes two days to make a brioche. You start a sponge, let it rest for 45 minutes, then make the dough, and let that rise for 2 hours. After refrigerating overnight, I pull the dough out in the very very early morning hours. Because of all the butter, the dough is extremely stiff. I shape it into individual brioche pans, cover and let it warm to room temperature, when it will rise again. If I take it out of the fridge at 4am, we're eating brioche by 8:30am

It may seem like alot of work, but the results are well worth it.
