Tuesday baking...


Monday evening at home was all that I hoped it would be...very relaxing. I kept putting off a little baking; a co-worker's birthday is today, and I'm bringing in a cake. I seem to do that a lot...put off the baking until early morning. The cake is a simple chocolate one, with a leaf imprint on top and merely sprinkled with powdered sugar. Just a hint of autumn.


Last week I met a friend at one of our favorite lunchtime hangouts--Coffee Cottage & Cafe. The special 'fresh from the oven' treat was the million dollar Pillsbury Bake-off peanut butter cookie. Absolutely outstanding. You can find the recipe here. Prep time vs. return---45 minutes for 24 cookies---but they are delicious!

I'll have to return to try and get it. I tried copying and pasting...not possible. It does look very intriguing.

And your leaf print in confectioner's sugar is a wonderful idea...just a hint to dress up that chocolate cake. Then there's no need for all that gooey icing on every birthday cake the whole year through. How well I remember the sabotage on almost a weekly basis. :D
