It is May and the Dandelions are making their delightful appearance. Although the dandelion is considered the gardener's and farmer's weed it is nice to see several of them in an open field in the spring.
My dear son enjoyed a lovely day at the park. He explored all the playground equipment that was available within his sight.
After the playground, we went for a visit to Great Grandma Esther and Papa Gavin.
We lay down for a nap and then I made some Snickerdoodles.
Old Fashioned Snickerdoodles
- 1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 medium egg
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-2/3 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons white sugar mixed with 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Now comes the fun part; let the kids help. Make sure everyone's hands are clean and then shape the dough into balls the size of a walnut, or an egg yolk. Roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the coated balls on an oiled cookie sheet. Using the bottom of a smooth cup or glass, press the dough down to flatten the cookies slightly. Bake them at 400° for 10 minutes. If your oven runs hot, turn it down to 375°. These cookies are great in lunch boxes and for after school snacks. These are an old favorite of mine. My momma made them for us as children, and they are exceptionally good.
