I’m a full time working mom and am still enjoying my baking! Okay, maybe the blogging has dropped off a bit, and exercising…but I’m doing my best. And I don’t even know how to “do better” at the moment. All I know is one day at a time.
So today I managed to work a full day, relish my kids’ first day of kindergarten, get them to soccer practice, and still have time to make cookies! (Yes, I have a great hubby who helps out a lot).
Snickerdoodles (because kids should have milk and cookies waiting for them at home, right M?)
- 1/2 cup butter at room temp
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
In a mixing bowl beat butter until creamy. Add about half of the flour, the 1 cup of sugar, the egg, vanilla, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined. Beat in remaining flour. Scoop batter onto plastic wrap. Shape into a long log. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut pieces. Roll pieces into circles. Combine the 2 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon. Roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 2 dozen.

Today I slipped a little note card into their lunchboxes. Tomorrow my kids will have some homemade cookies. I’d say that’s doing better!
Here’s a photo from this morning. I am fortunate to be working at the private school that my kids are attending. The elementary and secondary students share a campus, so my office is a stones-throw away from the kindergarten wing.
If there is an ideal for me to go back to work full time, this is it. I am doing teacher support. It’s my dream job. I am loving it.
