Some really yummy things!!

I got these ideas from little momma and company she is a cute blogger. Her photography is amazing, and her ideas are great, and her recipes are really yummy!!! {so go peek and take a look at her blog} {oh... the recipes I got from her blog, but I made them and the pictures on this blog are mine}
Dutch Baby
3/4 C milk (I used skim)
1/2 C flour
2 large eggs
1 and 1/2 T sugar
1/2 t vanilla extract
3 T butter
powdered sugar
desired fruit for topping
15 minutes before baking, preheat your oven to 450. Have a pie plate ready.Whisk together milk, flour, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Put the butter in the pie plate and place it in the oven to melt. When butter is just melted, brush the sides of the pie plate with it so the pancake will not stick.Slowly pour the batter into the hot pie plate. Bake it for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes, until pancake is well browned. Remove from oven and spoon fruit into the center of the pancake. Top with powdered sugar.
Play Dough Sugar Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt assorted colors of paste food coloring {I use the gel}

In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Tint each with a different food color. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 orange ball together to make 1 large ball. Shape into a 12 inch long roll (like a snake), starting at one end, coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie.
Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.

These where so fun to make!!

There is also this recipe of "Emily's Free-Form Rainbow Lollies". {My pictures didn't turn out so go there and see her pictures and the ingredients. Her pictures will make you want to do these}
