This past Saturday I spied these yummy concoctions...and in true to me style I figured out how to make them easier. Yeast and I don't get along too well so I cheated on that part of the recipe and used pre-made biscuits instead. If you are woman enough to conquer yeast then you can use the original recipe found HERE.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
handful of golden raisins (optional)
Mix all of the above together.
Four pack of biscuits (shown above)
more flour, granulated sugar and cinnamon for dusting
Grease a non-stick muffin pan. I used 18 muffin tins. Cut individual biscuits into fours. Dust with a handful of sugar, bit of flour and lots of cinnamon. Place four biscuit pieces into the bottom of each muffin cup, top with a tablespoon of butter and sugar mixture. Top with four more biscuit pieces then top with more sugar mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 12-18 minutes. The sugars do great things in the oven.
Sure to make your Saturday feel special. And my huge order of fabric arrived...lots of purses and other fun things to be created here.
We also started sleep training with Aaron with lots of success. We use a phenomenal book called Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child. It made a HUGE difference in our lives when we started it with Moses at four months. Before we started it he was waking up 10-12 times a night!!! We were ALL losing our minds...within 24 hours of starting this method Moses was only waking up twice a night...then soon only once. :) Anyway, we are starting it from the beginning with Aaron to avoid losing our minds (at least for that reason) this time around. We started on Friday and it has already had a huge impact on Aaron's sleep...much longer naps, much longer sleeping periods during the night and he is waking up later in the morning. :) On top of that a happy baby has become even more pleasant. :) I can't say enough good things about this book. :)

Streusel Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
This is yummy and very easy. Definitely good to have your butter and cream cheese at room temperature before you start.
1 cup butter (softened to room temperature)
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese (room temperature)
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ cup flour
¼ cup sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 350.
For batter, place butter and sugar in large bowl and beat at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix well. Spread 2/3 of batter onto bottom of a 10-inch springform pan.
For filling, combine cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla in medium bowl and mix well. Spread over batter in pan. Spoon remaining 1/3 of batter on top.
For topping, combine flour and sugar in small bowl. Add butter and blend until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
On Sunday I asked Moses if he wanted to go on a date with me the next day...he spent the rest of the day asking to go on a date...I am pretty sure he had no idea what he was asking for. :)
Of course that night he went to bed early because he refused to stay in time out...but we won't focus on that part of Monday. :)
How do you make each of your kids feel special?
