Week 3: Cracker attack!
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter, cold and cut in cubes
1/4 cup hot water
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
Keep in mind this was only half a batch and I ended up with about 4 dozen 2 inch heart cookies, so if you double the recipe for a whole batch, you had better like these crackers! :)
I was worried that I'd rolled them too thick and that they would be too "cakey" and not "cracker-y," but they all seem to have a decent crunch and this afternoon, there's only a dozen left, so they are kid approved!
Soda-had a sip or two at a ball game b/c I was too lazy to hoof it to the water fountain. It was gross and when I got back to the car, I drained my cup of ice water. And, when I walked down the snack aisle to pick up some pretzels, I wasn't even tempted to put anything in my cart. Definite progress has been made!
I found a very promising recipe for a Caesar dressing as well as a ranch. I'm waiting for a bottle to be empty to make more. That will probably happen this week sometime. I'll post results! :)
