Sugar Saucers

Another delicious recipe from Baked In America. Chewy, vanilla-y goodness. I need to own that book.

Master Alexander's New Coat

I used the usual Regency pattern but did my best to minimise the pleating at the shoulders,
and put a single deep pleat in the back.
He's only five and a half months old and it's a size one, so it's a bit big yet, but that allows him to show off the gorgeous lining fabric, which goes so well with his eyes!

Chocolate Snickerdoodles

I recently borrowed from the library Baked In America. It's an absolutely gorgeous cookbook full of biscuits, cakes, brownies and other snacks and desserts, and it's gone to the top of my wish list (seriously, if you know me in real life, check out my wish list. I want this book for my birthday)
Naturally, I had to make something from this wondrous book before returning it to the library. How could I resist chocolate snickerdoodles?
I'm quite pleased with them, except for one thing - tartaric acid is not cream of tartar!
