One of my favorite bloggers, and I consider her my friend as well, is our TWD host this week. When I saw it was her turn, I knew she would pick something delicious and I knew I would want to bake it along with her. Chandler was very excited about her choice too because he loves carrot cake and figured these would be very similar. He was right! They are like miniature little bundles of carrot cake in a cookie shape! I always think twice about baking a carrot cake because they just seem like a lot of trouble to whip up. But these were so easy I will definitely be rewarding Chandler with these often. I halved the recipe since we are still reeling from chocolate turtle cake that I made last night. It is a good thing I did because I could eat the entire cookie sheet while they were still warm! The only change I made to the recipe was I substituted pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg and I put the entire egg in rather than trying to halve an egg. Okay, can you halve an egg? Just a click on the link above will take you to Natalia's blog where you will lots of creative baking with an Italian twist!
The best way to remove a splinter is with an onion! Cut a small, postage-sized piece of fresh onion and place it on the padded part of an adhesive bandage. Then, wrap it around the splintered skin and keep covered all night. By morning, the onion will have drawn the splinter to the surface, making it easy to remove with a pair of tweezers.
