Girl's Night In
The other night my good friend M came over and we decided to have a girl's night of baking. M is not only a good friend but she is one of the most encouraging and positive people I know. She works a full time job plus goes to school so when the opportunity to bake something together came along, she was excited and happy. Both recipes come from the Allrecipes website. The first one we made was for the classic Snicker doodle cookie, one of my all time favorites. I have previously posted a recipe for Snicker doodles before but when my coworker brought in these cookies to work a couple weeks ago, I had to try the recipe out myself. They are so delicious--a little puffy and soft in the center with nice little crispy edges. Yummy!
The second recipe we made that night was for Butterscotch Bread Pudding (is your mouth watering yet)? Make sure you use an extra large mixing bowl when putting this together. The thing I like about making bread pudding is you can improvise as you go along, like maybe adding a handful of raisins or how about a dash of rum into the mix? The bread type can be varied too depending on your taste. For this bread pudding though, we pretty much stuck to the recipe and it turned out lusciously good. Right out of the oven the pudding is well, very pudding-ish in consistency. If you can stand to wait a day like I did before digging into it, the bread pudding will be firm and full of delicious butterscotch flavor.
M and I had so much fun baking that night that we've decided to make our girl's night of baking a monthly thing. Happy Baking!
