OK, you're off the hook. I actually think you are pretty amazing for doing all the wonderful cooking you do. My DH is a sweetheart, but if I had to rely on him to do the cooking, I would starve.

Saludos, Karen

Mav, make the woman some cookies, it is easy, I will walk you through it. I even have a recipe for whole wheat snickerdoodles. I cringe when I read about people using white flour and cake mixes to make cookies. White flour has no nutritive value and I think cake mixes use white flour and other cheap ingredients. It is easy for me to rationalize making cookies if I make them with ww flour.

ww snickerdoodles

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 t. pure vanilla extract
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2T. white sugar
1 1/2 t. cinnamon

Cream the butter, add the brown sugar and cream again. Add the egg and vanilla. Cream again. Add the baking powder, salt, and whole wheat flour. Stir until mixed. You can chill the dough, or not.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a smalll bowl. Shape an egg size piece of cookie dough into a ball and roll to coat in the sugar and cinnamon.. Place on an oiled cooie sheet, flatten dough slightly into a disc shape. Bake at 400*F for 10 minutes.

Any questions?

My recipe calls for creme/cream of tartar, Beth...I wonder what difference it makes, if any? That sounds like a good recipe - I have lots of good whole wheat flour on hand, I think I'll try it. Mav?

If we made them in our psycho oven, at 8 minutes they'd be over done..... 4 minutes cooked, 4 minutes 5 seconds, they look like pumpernickle bread...LOL

No beans unless they are green or jelly...
