I made a similar recipe to the one posted below except this recipe replaced some of the white sugar with confectionary sugar and I used a mixture of flour and confectionary sugar to roll them out. I definetely think this did help to make the cookies softer. I also underbaked them about a minute which I definetely think helped too. The cookies came out pretty good. I'm not sure I noticed a huge different in taste from the original, but they definetely are softer then some of the others I made. I used cookie icing to decorate and used four drops of Lorann Cotton Candy oil to flavor. Next time I think I need to use more though as you can't really taste the difference. I will post pictures of the cookies once I get them uploaded.

Banana Bread Update

Yum, It was pretty good. It definetely came out moist with a slight banana flavor. I might add another banana next time for a better banana flavor. I almost could taste the applesauce more then the banana. But it was good - a good starting point. Now, I'll have to make again w/ some changes to perfect it. Its gone for now though! In only 2 days.

Banana Bread

I bought a lot of extra bananas this week in hopes of making banana bread. I went simple with this loaf b/c I wanted the baby to be able to eat it, so I stayed away from the nuts. I used the standard recipe from my better homes and garden cookbook and made one change:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinammon
3 medium bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tbsp canola oil
1 egg
We haven't tasted it yet, but it certainly looked and smelled delicious coming out of the oven! I will post the results from the boys as soon as I hear them:)

Finally Some Pictures!

I've had quite a busy week and haven't gotten to do too much with my blog. I made wheat cinnamon raisin bread in my bread machine last night. I don't have a picture but the boys loved it! This is the second time I"ve made the receipe and both times it came out really good. I answered my phone at work to my 9 mo. old screaming - he wanted more bread.... Here is the recipe I used: http://www.bread-maker.net/Bread-maker-recipes/Whole-Wheat-Cinnamon-Raisin-Bread.htm
Above, I've finally uploaded some pictures of my Lemon Cookies and My Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. Both were super yummy and I would make them again!
