Sprinkled

I went to sleep lastnight knowing that something just wasn’t right. My throat was a little itchy and my chest was a wee bit tighter than usual…but I played it off as just being out in the cold lastnight when I went to Panera. Nope, wrong. Woke up this morning wanting to immediately rip a hole in my neck and pull my throat and most of my innerds out. Gross, but totally true and definitely unappetizing, making breakfast a little hard to stomach, butΒ I did. Luckily when I get sick I rarely lose my appetite. Or maybe I just love food.

Anyway, being sick – in my opinion – is the perfect excuse to sit on my bumdiggity all day. You bet I did, too. In between experimenting more with my almond flour and frequent trips to empty my hot-tea infused bladder, I was smack-dab on my booty. I also made a new bestfriend. Meet Tylenol – and as I tweeted earlier…I’m 21 years old and had SUCH difficulty getting that damn child lock off of it to open it. I rule.

Mmmm tasty. Except not.

So, enough grossing ya’ll out, let’s talk almond flour. I found a sweet recipe for almond flour SUGAR COOKIES! What a perfect recipe for the holidays, right? I adapted the recipe a bit for the ingredients I had on hand and I’m so pleased to say that they turned out perfectly. Also, no worries, I washed my hands frequently and didn’t get any germies on the cookies. I’ll be devouring them all anyway, most likely, so it’s not like it matters. Read on!

Success smells so good.

Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup almond flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup butter or sub

1 tsp vanilla

Sprinkles for decorating (the best part!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line/grease baking pan

Combine dry ingredients and beat together wet

Combine wet + dry ingredients and plop em’ on your baking pan

Sprinkle them with sprinkles BEFORE baking! I used holiday sprinkles, so festive!

Bake for 8-10 mins or until LIGHTLY browned. Don’t burn them, or your kitchen!

Let cool on a cooling rack and devour! πŸ™‚

Sprinkled!

What’s your favorite type of cookie?

What’s your best get-well remedy?

I’m off to fix some dinner and once again kick my Dad’s butt at Wii bowling πŸ˜‰

Peace and love!

Meg

p.s. I appreciate all the Mario Party lovers in my last post…and CRASH RACING?! YES! I loved that one too.
