We’re in the home stretch. 5 days of school left until summer break! I’m excited. It’ll be fun… I hope. And hopefully the warm weather finally comes back to stick around. Yep… it’s still been rainy and I’m really over it. I’m ready to play outside and enjoy the sun again. I love New England for it’s uniqueness but the weather really is the pits half of the time.

In other news… my friend Megan is hosting a blogger bake sale this coming weekend (July 22-23) to benefit Crohn’s disease. Stop by and check out all of the goodies that have been donated. Bidding starts Saturday! Remember, the money goes to a good cause so keep bidding! I’m donating a package of pumpkin snickerdoodles. I know it’s not really pumpkin season, but they’re freakishly delicious and should be eaten year round. Consider this an off season treat.

I had planned to make and share a bunch of patriotic dishes leading up to the 4th of July. It’s my absolute favorite holiday so when I’m given the chance to celebrate, I really want to. Sadly, this is pretty much as far as I got this year. BUT I do have a special week coming up with super delicious seasonal desserts sooo that’ll make up for my lack of red, white and blue. I promise!

I didn’t go all the way out and cook these till super golden, and honestly… they didn’t need it. They’re super tasty light or dark. Top them off with fresh whipped cream and a good helping of roasted strawberries (because you know you’ll want more than a spoonful or two). Make these in a regular muffin pan or a patriotic silicone star pan. Either way will be equally delicious.

    Jason was just talking the other day about how he wants me to make angel food cake so he can drizzle fresh fruit on top! He said that he ate it a lot as a kid. Guess I know what’s going on my to-make list ;) I love the little star shaped ones!

    Folding in the flour. Do you do it in the mixer? Change attachments? Or do it manually? How will it come out smooth? Thank you

      Folding is done with a rubber spatula by hand.
