SMS Snickerdoodles.....

Our Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe for this week were Snickerdoodles, chosen by Spike of Spike Bakes , check out her blog, she also made white chocolate cinnamon ice cream to go with her cookies!!!
These were very easy to make; I made the dough the day before and baked them this morning, the house smelled so good!!! They tasted great, just like a snickerdoodle should; I got 18 cookies, I ate 1, DH had 1 (so far) and the rest go to work with him tomorrow. Get them out of the house, away from me, LOL.


I have always heard about White Lily Flour and how soft it is and how it makes the best biscuits; just one problem, can't find it here on the West coast. But when one of my clients said her husband was in Kentucky on business, (well why not), I asked, if he could find the time, could he please, please, bring me back some flour. I'm sure he really needed to hear about finding flour on a business trip; but Saturday morning there it was on the desk, one 5 pound bag of White Lily flour, oh thank you, thank you. Who knew flour could be so exciting, I did try to find some, when I was in Pennsylvania, but no luck. I think it's only East of the Mississippi and mainly in the South.

I made the recipe on the back of the flour bag for biscuits, I had one, and DH ate the rest with some of the preserves we made a few weeks ago. The biscuits were very good!!! The flour really is soft and has a different texture than regular flour; will hoard this flour as long as possible!!!

Another client asked if would make the desserts for a party she is having next week, of course I said yes!!! She wanted mini pineapple upside down cakes, lemon mini cheese cakes and mini cupcakes for the children. I did a test for the pineapple upside down cakes and they turned out GREAT!!! They are a perfect two bite dessert, not too much and there is always room for more.

Everything looks delicious! I love your mini pineapple upside-down cakes. The snickerdoodles were definitely dangerous to have around - luckily we're visiting my husband's family right now, so there were plenty of people to eat mine...

All of your treats look so good! Glad you enjoyed the snickerdoodles :) I live on the east coast but I've never seen White Lily flour - now you've got me curious!

By the way, I received the ice cream sandwich makers and they're so cute!! Thanks so much! I can't wait to use them.

All the treats look great, especially the mini pineapple upside down cakes! How nice of your client's husband to buy the flour; I'll have to look for it if I'm ever in the south.

I've never heard of that brand before. I'll have to keep an eye out though. I LOVE biscuits!
Your cookies look wonderful as well- I brought mine to work too. I'm trying to cut back on carbs which isn't easy with all these yummy treats to eat!

Your cookies look great. Love the crackly top. I’m glad you liked them.

The mini upside down pineapple cakes look super cute.

Off-topic: your turn to host the SMS baking club is a week after mine. I was wondering if you would be interested in switching. That weekend is going to be super busy for me. If you are interested, I will let Lorelei know about our switch. Please email me at HanaasKitchen [at] live [dot] com. Or stop by my blog and leave a comment. Thanks!!!

Hi Robin!

Your snickerdoodles look fantastic- great job! Your biscuits and mini pineapple upside-down cakes (how clever!) look absolutely delicious too. I am SO with you about longing for the elusive white lily flour... I live on the East coast (in Boston) and we don't have it here either. There is a biscuit recipe that is supposed to be heavenly (Shirley Corriher's "Touch-of-grace biscuits"), but it even instructs in the book to wait and make them ONLY with white lily. I'm still looking forward to the day when I can get my hands on some. I'm glad you got to experiment with it :) Let me know if you try any other recipes.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great week. Hope to hear from you soon!

-Joy
