FUN FRIDAY | “When mama gets lemons………”

So I’ve decided that friday is going to be “FUN FRIDAY”.  I spend far too much time pinning delicious treats onto my “Delish” board!  I am now going to bring them to life!  During the week I am going to try to make something from my library of yummies and then I’m going to blog about it on fridays.  I’ll let you know if it is as good as it looks or if it turns out to be a disaster!  I always wonder because they all look so GOOD!!  If anything my family will be happy to have mom making something for them to snack on. 

Since today turned out to be a snowy day I decided to start today!  I tried a couple of different recipes.  The first one was Creamy Lemon Oat Bars.  They were very simple to make and luckily I had all the ingredients kickin around in my kitchen.  I followed the recipe to a “T”.  The only change I would make is instead of using cooking spray on your pan, use butter and flour.  It completely stuck to the bottom.  I have yet to use the cooking spray and had success.  Not a fan.  Or you could line the pan with parchment paper…….my absolute favorite thing in my kitchen!  Other than that they turned out great and they are a huge hit with the kiddos!

The next recipe I tried was a yummy cookie recipe.  It’s a Lemon Crinkle Cookie.  Mine definitely don’t look like the one’s in the picture on pinterest but they taste delicious!  Apparently she won a contest with these babies.  I made sure to follow the recipe exact so I wouldn’t mess them up.  Sometimes I get carried away with other things going on around me that I forget an ingredient or two.  Hazard of having 5 kids running around my kitchen while I’m baking.;)  I found the dough to be too sticky when I was rolling them.  My suggestion would be to put the dough in the fridge for an hour or so before you roll them.  Other than that……very chewy and soft.  LoVe them.  I will definitely make them again.

Here is a picture of my finished product!
