Some of my earliest memories contain fingers coated in flour, sprinkles dancing away, and sitting on top of the counter to roll out pie dough. As a result, I’ve always loved baking. I’ve done my best to instill a love of baking with my kids, and my son’s goal to be an astronaut chef is fairly good evidence I’ve succeeded so far.
But with busy schedules of preschool, working from home, activities and events, we don’t always have the time to give baking its due diligence.
I was beyond grateful when I discovered some shortcuts that let us have fun baking, but with just a little bit less work so we can fit it in more frequently. I wanted to share a couple of recipes in case you, too, would like to bake more.
