As promised, here are the recipe and the pic of the basic butter cookies that I was telling you about in the previous post. 🙂
Please don’t pay any attention to the amateurish shape of the cookies. That was the best I could come up with, considering that I have just started baking and have not yet invested in some cookie cutters.
I followed this recipe to the letter. No changes. I do not own a weighing scale, though, and the measurements were, therefore, approximate. BTW any suggestions on how to get the measurements exact? Any suggestions about the type of weighing scale that one would need for baking?
And while we are on the subject of baking, let me tell you about the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake that I made over the weekend. I followed this recipe that Smitha had suggested, and it turned out super-duper yummylicious! It was just the right amount of moist and sweet, and my family LOVED it! 🙂
Here are some pics of the cake.
Again, pardon me for the amateurish-looking cake and amateurish-looking pics. Food photography does not come easily when all you want to do is try out the food and see how it has come out! 🙂
By the by, the husband suggested that this cake should be called Pineapple Downside Up cake since the pineapples are placed at the bottom of the tin and the tin is inverted after the cake is ready, to bring the pineapples on top. I thought he made sense! 😛
So, now, I am officially addicted to baking. I am in love with it – with the aroma that fills my home when I am baking, with the thrill on the faces of the family every time I make something new, and with the entire process of baking. I am thinking of baking something savoury next; don’t knwo what it will be, though. Any suggestions?
How have you been, folks? How was the weekend for you?
