Four Foods on Friday - The Sniff Test

Time for FFOF hosted by Fun, Crafts, and Recipes. Today's theme is all about your sniffer!


#1. Fruits and veggies. Do you prefer them peeled or not? I prefer them unpeeled, because the peels have tons of great nutrients and fiber. We all need our fiber, don't we?

#2. What’s your favorite fresh fruit or vegetable smell? My favorite fresh fruit smell is peaches! And they're in season now! (Fresh strawberries are a very close second.)

#3. What’s the worst food smell you’ve ever smelled? It would have to be a dish that I smelled while in Japan in 1993. I was a short-term missionary, didn't speak much Japanese, and a lot of people I met were very eager to share their favorite dishes with me. I liked a lot of the things I ate, but a few did make me a little green.

#4. Share the recipe for the dish that you love to smell cooking in your oven. Since I have such a sweet tooth, and I love cookies, I'll share my snickerdoodle recipe.

Ingredients
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Coating
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions
1.Mix the cinnamon with the sugar in a bowl and set aside.
2.Mix the margarine, sugar and eggs.
3.Add the dry ingredients and form small balls.
4.Roll the balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
5.Place on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart (they spread as they bake).
6.Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 F.
7.Remove from the tray immediately.

Looks like I'll be needing to make some Snickerdoodles soon, they look simple enough.
Thanks for playing FFOF.
Stumbled.

Not sure if I've eaten snickerdoodles. I may have but then again, I'm not a cookie lover. Love the name though.

Snickerdoodles are soooo good! Any dessert with cinnamon in it smells so good baking in the oven.
