So, I cooked up a storm this afternoon and am so excited because, for once, nothing flopped and everything turned out really delicious. I have no idea why, because that is so not like me–especially since I was trying four new recipes.
But anyway, everything went smoothly and there were no mishaps–which I’m pretty sure will be a once-in-a-lifetime sort of occurrence.
It ended up taking me a little over two hours to make all of these things and each one ended up being a home run winner. And my family members agreed. I’ll definitely be making all of these recipes again.
I’m pretty sure the Pumpkin Scone recipe is the best scone recipe I’ve ever tasted. It was just about perfect–not too dry, not too doughy, and just the right amount of sweetness (I only did one glaze, instead of the two that the recipe called for, as that seemed possibly like a little bit of sugar overload!).
The final results:
16 Homemade Pizza Pockets — I used my Pizza Dough recipe and filled these with ground beef, cheese, and a little pasta sauce.
18 Easy Morning Glory Muffins — These are fabulous–by far the best Morning Glory Muffin recipe ever (thanks, Angie!).
