Sara makes Snickerdoodles


First of all, is this not the cutest thing ever???  It is one of Ellen's new litters and has become a family favorite.  Her name is "Tannenbaum" which means Christmas tree in German.  Ellen has a rule with her bunny business....you can't name the bunnies or they have to kept.  She has done very well with this rule until this little cutie pie came along....she is the offspring of a special breed of rabbits called "Lion head". They grow a tuft of hair around their head that looks like a "mane".  In preparation for the Christmas season this year, Ellen has had thirty baby bunnies this month, but this one just worked her way into the family, was named and will probably stay!  The girls have been making jewelry for presents this year so Ellen created this headpiece for her little friend

  
Like I said, Tannenbaum has worked her magic on everyone!  You can see the
whiskers already beginning to form the mane.


So, back to making Snickerdoodles ~ Sara learned how to make these from a friend and they are so super duper easy that everyone needs to know this recipe!  First start with regular boxed cake mix.


Mix 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and two eggs into the cake mix.  


Form balls from the dough and coat with cinnamon sugar mixture ~ flatten balls
and place on baking pan.



Let little sister eat the left over batter


Bake at 350 degrees, bring to school for Christmas parties! 


Told you this was an easy one! Enjoy!!!!!!
