She followed the recipe and took out the 8 ingredients she needed while the griddle warmed up. She mixed it all up on her own and then cooked them.
They turned out just right! She always feel such a sense of accomplishment when she successfully prepares a meal for us. She read the history lesson aloud while I finished up some other items for our meal. The family all enjoyed the hoe cakes! They were not sweet like pancakes but made for a tasty addition to our brinner.
Speedy wanted a chance to try a recipe too. He selected Revolutionary Honey-Jumble Cookies. This cookie recipe uses ingredients you've probably got around the house right now. The process was pretty simple and it was a chance to learn some history and some home economics!
Then he used the mixer for the first time and combined them all. The dough went into the fridge for 10 minutes then we pulled them out to make our cookie balls. Speedy opted to take the job of flattening them with a glass.
He was pleased with the results!
We all were! These were some easy to make, very tasty cookies! There was a small discrepancy in this recipe. A couple of the ingredients didn't make it into the step by step instructions. We figured it out easily enough though. We read the history lesson included with this recipe aloud while we enjoyed our dessert.
