Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Crystal, and . . . 

Running shoes.   Your funny comments remind me of 1988, when my girls were about the same age as Nathan and Justin are now.

That’s also when I first discovered one of my best recipes:


From The New Purity Cookbook

1/3 cup butter (at room temperature)
2/3 cup brown sugar

2 cups flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup butter (at room temperature)
1 cup milk

1.      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.     Grease a baking sheet.
3.     Cream together 1/3 cup butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar.  Set aside.
4.     In a food processor, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
5.     Add butter and blend until mixed in.
6.     Turn flour mixture into a large mixing bowl.
7.     Stir in milk to make a dough.  Do not overwork it.
8.     Turn dough out onto a floured surface.  Sprinkle top of dough lightly with flour and pat and roll it out until about one-half inch thick.

9.     Spread the dough with the reserved butter and brown sugar.

10.                         Roll up like a jelly roll.

11.                         Cut into slices and place on baking sheet.
12.                          Bake for 14 minutes.  (This will depend on your oven.  They might be done in 12 minutes.)
