We met on September 18th this month and we did desserts.  YEAH and yummy!

Ruby used the Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library Muffins and Quick Breads.

1. Marion Cunningham Fresh Ginger Muffins on page 21- Easy to follow, not expensive and taste was NOTHING SPECIAL.  Ruby says the recipe needs tweeking.

2. Blueberry Muffin- easy to follow, not expensive and taste was NOTHING SPECIAL.  This also needs tweeking.

3. Sour Cream Maple- easy to follow, not expensive and taste was NOTHING SPECIAL.  it needs tweeking.

I had a taste of each of these muffins and they were nice and moist, they just needed to be spiced up.


                                                                                                                                               
I used Scandinavian Classic Baking.

1. Danish Almond Tea Ring on page 31- Easy to follow, not expensive and taste was VERY GOOD.  This made a huge ring, next time I will cut it in half, also if using almond paste from a can, you should open the can up scoop it out and put in a mixer with the other ingredients.  don't even think you can do it at the last minute.  Next time I will probably substitute cinnamon and sugar for the almond paste mixture.

2. Lemon Sponge Pudding Cake on page 39- easy to follow, not expensive and taste was NOTHING SPECIAL.  Needs prep before doing recipe and do not use a metal bowl or you will get a metallic taste to the pudding.
