Baking and Blogging....

Today, I woke up in a baking mood. Things were kind of hairy this morning getting both the kids to school with all of our sanities in tact. This is usually when I feel like baking.

Oh boy, do I need to find another way to de-stress, or I am going to gain all of my weight back.

But on the bright side, I made cookies that were a tad bit healthier than the traditional cookies...thanks to Family Fun magazine!

Tortilla cookies!!! And they are actually good...Here is what you do:

Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut as many heart shapes as you want out of tortillas (wheat or flour work the best).

Lightly spray them with non-stick cooking spray...

Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles...

Bake at 400 degrees for 4 minutes...

They turn out nice and crispy with a little kick of sugar. You can make any design you want, but since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, what better than some good old hearts?!

THEN, I made a bunch of real, homemade sugar cookies. So much for the healthier alternative right? J just got home and now we are enjoying a nice, after school snack of sugar cookies and milk. To the elliptical I go!
