It's been a bit of a tiring weekend and my moods have been up and down, especially considering that the secretary at work has been sick so I've had to do all of my tasks plus a few of hers that HAVE to be done on a daily basis. I was really afraid I was going to say something bad at work, but I bit my tongue. BARELY, mind you.

So when I get in this state of absolute up and down, hardly eating blahblah, there's one thing that will ALWAYS cure me.


Today's baking adventure is brought to you by the fact that I have leftover root beer oil from the root beer everclear adventure.

These cookies (sorry no pictures this time) are quite interesting. They taste like sugar cookies and THEN BAM the tangy taste of a root beer! Here's the recipe


2/3 C butter softened
3/4 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
several drops of root beer oil
2 C flour

Preheat oven to 375.
Mix the butter and sugar together. (The electric beater works best, seriously)
Add baking powder, egg, vanilla, milk and root beer oil. I used about 5-7 drops and the root beer flavor isn't that strong. I'll have to keep experimenting.
Beat in as much flour as you can then stir the remaining to get a nice stiff dough. If not stiff enough, put in fridge.
FLOUR EVERYWHERE!! (if you're me, haha) Roll out the dough in batches, use cookie cutters.
Bake in oven for 7-8 minutes, possibly longer depending on how thick you make your cookies.
Lastly, EAT!

To make dinosaur cookies, just leave out the root beer oil. This is my absolute favorite sugar cookie dough to eat and work with.

Nothing makes me happier or distracts me more than baking. Unfortunately, there's not enough time in the day to bake every day, but I will probably bake more this week, experiment some more.
