Bakin' the Vote

The fifth graders at Annamarie's school are hosting a bake sale tomorrow, hoping to squeeze some money from the inevitable throngs of people waiting to vote in their cafeteria. Annamarie and I spent a couple of hours today making Raspberry Cream Cheese Turnovers to sell during our shift at the bake sale table.

This was a great baking project to do with kids--Annamarie did almost all of the work herself until I realized that we had 20 minutes to get the last two batches in and leave the house to get to a doctor appointment. Those batches might have been a little rushed.

Naturally ours didn't turn out as pretty as the ones on the original site, but they are yummy. I am seriously considering just donating money to the school and eating all the turnovers. Ron thinks that they need to be reheated and covered with ice cream, but he feels that way about everything. One of the commenters at Ordering Disorder remarked that they are like homemade PopTarts, and maybe that explains why I love them so much. I think they would go great with a nice cup of tea.

Annamarie and I were just doing quality assurance.

Don't forget to vote. And if you vote at our school, help the fifth graders pay for their field trips by buying some brownies or cupcakes, and ignore the crumbs around my mouth.

Homemade Pop Tarts? Mmmmm...I am all over that. Do you have any in brown sugar and cinnamon?

Love the look on AM's face in that QA picture. LOL
