Woke up this morning to our first "real" snowfall of the season!! The weatherman is saying up to 6 inches before it's all said and done!!! So thankful I don't have to drive to work in it today!! I'm sitting here with a nice hot cuppa joe flavored with eggnog creamer (yummy!!) and enjoying some wedding cake cookies which are one of my favorites!
I am contemplating making some Snickerdoodle Mini Muffins a bit later today. The recipe comes from my new Gooseberry Patch cookbook I received in a secret pal Christmas swap I participated in over on the Country Sampler Magazine forum. There are so many talented and super nice people who post over there! Here's the recipe:
Snickerdoodle Mini Muffins
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats, uncooked
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1 T. baking powder
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 t. vanilla extract
1 t. cinnamon
Combine flour, oats, 1/2 cup sugar and baking powder; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, margarine and vanilla; blend well and add to flour mixture. Fill greased mini muffin cups 2/3 full. Mix together cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over muffins. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.
Well, that's about all for now. Stay warm and safe today!
