Hi! We did Muffin Tin Monday again this week, and there was no theme, so I chose Yellow. We’ve been focusing on one color a week, and this fit right in! Today in the tin we have:
1 tiny summer squash steamed
1 cheese sandwich cut with a dino cutter
A Melting Moments cookie (recipe below)
1 Yellow Plum
And I even put the drink in a Yellow cup!
The Melting Moments cookies came out of my FAVORITE cookbook. I collect cookbooks (have probably 100 or more) and my husband and I agree this one is our favorite. It’s called “The Basics And More.” It’s just coil bound and is quite thick. If you ever see it you should pick up a copy!
Melting Moments cookies-
I love this recipe because the measures are VERY easy, so even a young child can very easily help. If you use a 1/2 cup measuring spoon they only have to be able to count to 2! However I suggest doing the cookie shaping without help, the finished cookies are VERY crumbly and they don’t do well if smooshed. If your little one can make balls of dough they can help, smooshers are better left napping.
Cream 3/4 cup of butter
1 Cup of flour
1/2 cup of corn starch
1/2 cup of Confectioners Sugar
Chill for one hour.
Roll into balls and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. You might want to check them sooner then that, we need a new oven. You cook them until the edges are just starting to get golden. I left mine rolled into balls and they flattened just right.
After they are cool sprinkle them with or roll them in confectioners sugar. I sprinkle ours, because I tend to choke on inhaled powdered sugar! LOL
And don’t forget to go here to see more of this week’s muffin tins! There is also a few more days to sign up for the Muffin Tin Swap- I’m still debating if I want to or not. I don’t have a lot of money to invest, and it seems dumb to buy for others when I have the one single solitary tin (and no silicone cups.)
