First of all I want to thank every one of you who entered the drawing for the cookie/biscuit cutters, and for taking the time to leave such fantastic comments! I wish I could send this set of cutters to each of you.
Our winner this time is Karen from Karen Cooks!
If you will contact me via email with your mailing address I'll get the cutters right off to you. I hope you enjoy them.
Thank you again everyone for entering! I will be having another drawing soon ~ and I hope you'll check back and enter for another chance to win.
Aside from St. Patrick's Day I haven't been in the kitchen much this week.
Getting the groundwork completed for the Chicken House has taken priority over most anything else because the chicks are growing so fast!
Happily the weather has been gorgeous, so working outdoors has been a delight.
I did take a few minutes today to make Nigella Lawson's super easy (food processor) Fairy Cakes.
If you haven't made these, I hope you'll give them a try ~ I don't bother with boxed cake mixes for cupcakes ~ Nigella's recipe is just so simple!
This is how simple they are to make ~
Whir 1 stick of butter
3/4 cup self-rising flour (you can make your own in seconds)
7 tablespoons granulated sugar
in bowl of food processor until mixed.
Add 2 to 3 tablespoons milk, vanilla extract if desired, and pulse until combined.
Place batter in standard size cupcake papers in pan and bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
Yay! You can skip the boxed stuff!
Decorate any way you like.
This time I used Nigella's suggested icing, tinted with food coloring and topped each with an M&M.
See how easy?
The recipe makes exactly 12.
I love that!
Just perfect for the first day of Spring. *heart*
