I used to bake muffins and cookies all the time! But then I found that my weight was being affected (it's a bummer when you get old enough for that to start happening!). So I quit. For a long time. And I missed the baking. And the fact that my kids love to eat the goodies!
Lately, Aubry has become the little baker and I guess I am following in her footsteps. I find that I don't really want to eat them anymore (well, chocolate chip cookies really call my name!) and I can bake and let the kids enjoy.
I made these French Breakfast Puffs a couple of days ago and was a little disappointed at their size. The kids, however, noted that the small size made a better "muffin to butter/sugar ratio".
The creaters of the recipe obviously have food stylists who worked hours to make the edges of their cookies perfectly round, and I don't. But I am going for a "handmade with love" look for these treats!
