Today's Theme is Log
I almost didn't make today's recipe. (I feel like I say that a lot.) Sometimes I feel so rushed to get the first recipe of the month done. It may be because we get the recipes a week before the first one is due, so I feel rushed. (Plus, I also bake with another group--Baked Sunday Mornings.) I had a recipe due for that group around the same time. I made these, Brown Butter Snickerdoodles and loved them.
Enough about my inability to manage my time! Let's get these cookies rolling. (Please note, cookies were indeed rolled in the making of this recipe...but none were harmed....unless you feel eating said cookies is harming them.)
|Log, Log, everyone loves a log...|
Next, the filling needs to get mixed up.
|Stems to the left...to be left.|
Next, the 12 sections of the filling get rolled into tiny logs, that then get rolled in one of the 12 little dough logs. Seriously, I'm totally logged out. And I can't share the pic of the filling log in the dough before it gets rolled up. I just can't. It isn't pretty. It really looks like a log...of something.
And can I just say, that I used this Pastry scraper for a lot of the process. (One of those kitchen tools I can't live without now.)
It gets cuter!
See! Cute! Super cute!
And into the oven they go.
