Prima winner..

You probably all thought that I would never be back :p

The winner of the prima goodies is Skye Johnson

I put all the comment numbers into a random number generator & up popped 26.
Congrats Skye!
I already have your addy here from your win @ STG…stalk your postie ;)

I need to update this poor blog of mine soon.
It’s sadly last on the list @ the moment.

I have to say before I go (to watch Celebrity Masterchef)
that you must try & bake these cookies.

I made them tonight & they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G


(picture & recipe cred: Baking Bites)

Chai Snickerdoodles
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup butter, soft
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine sugar and spices; remove 1/2 cup of this mixture and place in a medium-sized, shallow dish or bowl (like a soup plate). Add butter to bowl and cream with sugar mixture until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda. Add to sugar mixture and stir until fully incorporated.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in reserved sugar-spice mixture. Place on baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between balls to allow for spreading.
Bake for about 12 minutes, until edges are firm to the touch, but not quite browned. Cool for 3-5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen.

My batch made 39 cookies. They smell so yummy.
The whole house smells like a chai latte.


Ok I have to say a HUGE congrats to all that made the shortlist for Scrapbooking Memories masters.
I just got my e-mail newsletter & was so happy to see so many of my friends names on there.
You go girls!!!

That’s it for me.
Much love. x
