Yo dawg...

I heard you like blog posts so I got you a blog post in a blog post, so you can read a blog while you read a blog.  Yeah, this is what happens when we don't blog about anything in months. Deal with it.

In all seriousness, we started out our baking by getting ingredients ready to make these tasty little devils: Homemade Tagalongs.  We got out the food processor, Kate put in the flour, and then she put in sugar. Then I hear, "Crap, that was supposed to be powdered sugar."

So, we put the Tagalongs on hold for a minute to find a quick recipe that we could use the sugar and flour in, and decided on muffins, but of course we had no fresh fruit to go in them. The best we could do was dried cranberries, which turned out just horribly...I'll just take these with me and handle them. Kay? Kay.

They look awful, don't they? :D

Okay, fine...They aren't defective. I'll put them back on the counter and share... *sigh*

The Recipe!
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 cup sugar
-2 eggs, beaten
-1/2 cup milk
-2 cups AP flour
-2 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp salt
- dash each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves
-2 cups dried cranberries, tossed lightly with powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar together, then beat in the eggs. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Beginning and ending with flour, alternatively add the flour and milk to the butter mixture, until well combined. Fold in cranberries.

Muffin Batter!!
Fill muffin tins 2/3rds full, using either paper cups or a greased pan. Then pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges.

Kate just a'mixing away.
