baking day!

Wondering what you could do on a Rainy day? Maybe your tired of feeding Your family Store Bought Snacks that are filled with Bad stuff? Or even Just wanting to save money!

Have a Baking day!
When you bake it yourself You are avoiding the Unknown Ingredients and the risk of contaminated Products, You can choose if it 100% Organic and best of all You know Your family will love the effort you put into it (Hey and kids are GREAT at Mixing!)

In my home we have "baking day" once a week (Sometimes More!)

It great family fun, and You can make your snack foods healthy if you chose!

Dont know what to make? Well If your reading this you have access to MILLIONS of Recipes!
But here is a good one anyways!

Mommies Favorite Pumpkin Puff cookies

1/2 cup butter
I cup packed Brn. Sugar
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cup pumpkin
1 egg
1tsp. Vanilla
2 1/4 cups AP flour
1 1/2 tsp. Grd. Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Grd. nutmeg
Prheat Oven to 375
Beat Butter and Sugars in large bowl till creamy Beat in Pumpkin, egg, and Vanilla until light and somwwhat fluffy.
Mix in flour, Cinn., Baking Powder /soda, and nutmeg till blended Drop heaping Tablespoons onto and ungreased cookie sheet bake Until tooth pick comes out clean!...I think it was about13-14 minutes
Eat warm or cold!

another staple for us on baking day is Home-made Butter! (You cant have Blueberry Muffins without it!)

You need a Mason jar

whole cream

3 marbles.

Put Cream and Marbles in the jar, cap and shake! It will first become whip Cream, then will feel Like its not doing anything...Keep shaking (Or sit on the couch and Bang it on SOFT cushions) Soon the butter will sperate from the Buttermilk! pour off the butter milk and store (You Will want the butter milk for Baking later..Buttermilk buscuts, buttermilk pancakes....)

Put butter in a butter dish or Just put in a bowl and leave on the counter (Not for Long, only if you plan to use it SOON!) then Refigerater like normal butter!
