Winter Baking

Cinnamon rolls are so delicious and they are mostly time consuming but easy to make. In the winter you don’t mind heating up the oven and they just make the kitchen aroma heavenly from the cinnamon baking. I am making that one of my New Years Resolutions to make more cinnamon rolls this winter.

If you have ever been to the King Arthur Flour Cafe at their store in Norwich, Vermont, you should try their Flourless Chocolate Cookies. They are pure chocolate and delicious. They have the recipe for the cookies on their website and I also saved the recipe to my King Arthur Flour board on my Pinterest. One of my favorite cookies of all times and they have no flour. I also love the chocolate chips that you can buy from King Arthur Flour. I got a free sample of the chocolate chips on their grand store opening a couple of years ago. Best chocolate ever to bake with.

And then King Arthur Flour’s Apple Cider Baked Donuts with a maple glaze. Yum! They have a special donut pan that you can bake donuts in and they even have donut mixes to make it even easier. And they give recipes to make from scratch. I love King Arthur Flour.

And then buttery, Glazed Maple Shortbread Cookies. Use pure Vermont Maple Syrup. I have a maple leaf cookie cutter that I bought years ago and I like a shortbread cookie recipe from a Better Homes and Garden cookbook from the 70’s. A tried and true recipe that makes soft, buttery cut out cookies.

Baking Powder Biscuits are classic and uses simple ingredients for fresh, warm biscuits. King Arthur Flour has a great recipe that I pinned on my King Arthur Flour recipe board on my Pinterest.

King Arthur Flour has a really neat maple rolling pin and pie mat that would be handy to have to make pie dough with. I have heard that the most important thing for pie dough is to keep it cold and a marble board is supposed to make really good pie crust results, also.

Vermont Cheddar Apple pie with Cabot Cheddar in the crust. Yum! That recipe is on the King Arthur Flour website and I also saved it to my King Arthur Flour Pinterest board.

I always wanted to make sour dough bread and there is a recipe where you can make “No Knead Harvest Grain Bread” using a Le Creuset pot. King Arthur Flour has a crock and a mix that you can buy to make sour dough starter and I saved the recipe on my King Arthur Flour board for the bread that is great for toast or sandwiches.

And then a recipe that is good to know how to make is Barefoot Contessa’s Outrageous Brownies. Those brownies helped make Jeffrey want to marry her is what Barefoot Contessa claims.

And then there is Barefoot Contessa’s Engagement Chicken. I saved that recipe in my Barefoot Contessa recipe board on my Pinterest. They always say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

And then Barefoot Contessa’s Meatloaf has 5 stars and I have seen it mentioned a lot as being really good. I saved that recipe on my Barefoot Contessa board on my Pinterest.

Flourless Chocolate Cake is really easy to make as it has chocolate and cocoa with a really rich ganache glaze. King Arthur Flour has a recipe for it and also Suzanne Somers has a really good recipe for it. To me, it tastes like a fancy dessert that you would get at a really nice restaurant.

I love bundt pans and the Carribbean Rum Cake is so fancy looking and a neat recipe to have. I saved the recipe on my King Arthur Flour board on my Pinterest.

Barefoot Contessa has a recipe for Cheddar Dill Scones that sounds wonderful. I saved the recipe on my Barefoot Contessa board on my Pinterest.

Another interesting baking recipe that I saw was Missy’s Lemon and Blueberry Cupcakes. I saw the recipe on the Pioneer Woman Food Network show and the recipe is on the Food Network.

My son loves Chocolate Cream Pie. It’s really easy to make and all kinds of recipes out there. I saved a couple recipes for Chocolate Cream Pie on my Pie board on my Pinterest.

So that is a few fun ideas to have fun baking this winter.
