Giveaway: King Arthur's Flour now has k.a.f kids!

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

The holidays are coming, which means my annual cookie baking marathon is fast approaching. Years ago, my mother let me in on a little secret - only use King Arthur's Unbleached Flour for your baking needs, real butter, sour cream , (never flavored or reduced fat), and for the lightest, fluffiest pie crusts, use vegetable shortening. And if anyone has ever tasted my mother baking, you would know why I listen to her. So I went to the King Arthur Flour site perusing for coupons as I usually do around the holidays, and came upon one of the most visually delicious and well done commercial websites I have seen yet. So I wrote them to tell them how much I love their flour, and learned they are SO MUCH MORE than just flour. Just look at this comprehensive selection to suit every baking need. You will want to jump into the computer and eat your circuit boards when you see their baked goods.
Now, King Arthur offers something for the whole family, k.a.f kids baking line. It is, simply put, delicious, all natural goodies to bake with your children! When I received the sample, Sophia and I ripped open the box and started in on our project. We had a blast baking together.
As you can see she is quite a little ham. Here she is pretending to eat them right off the box. You would think I don't feed her. K.A.F. Kids mixes are fast, easy, and just plain yummy. Made of the best all-natural and organic ingredients, they feature the mild flavors and softer texture kids love. Add the expertise of the King Arthur test-baker moms who developed and perfected these mixes, and you’ve got a guaranteed recipe for fun in the kitchen.

The cookies are crisp around the edges, soft in the center, and sensational all the way through. We tried out the Snickerdoodle mix. You could never, in a million years, tell these cookies were from a box. You use your own egg and your own melted butter for a delicious home baked taste - ZERO chemically after taste like with some boxed mixes.
King Arthur is so much more than flour, and I am seriously considering their kids baking kit for Sophia. I think it would make a great Christmas gift for any kid who likes to bake. She actually did most of the baking herself on this test run, and was my little taste tester. Of course, as usual, she has to taste the raw batter right out of the bowl. Even that was good.
Is your mouth watering yet? Well lucky for us, the cool people over at King Arthur Flour have sent me one (1) box of their super delicious k.a.f Snicker Doodle Mix kit. And it can be yours. Here's how to get yourself in the running for this contest.

FINE PRINT: I solicited King Arthur for this product and they sent me a sample. I, in no way, was asked for anything but my honest opinion. I was not paid for this review.

I would use some King Arthur's unbleached flour to make my traditional sweet potato gnocchi for Christmas Eve dinner! Or about a million other things. I have the King Arthur "Whole Grain Baking" bible and it contains everything I could possibly dream up for the holidays. Oh yeah, I already follow you on FB! XXOO

Cinnamon rolls! We make about twelve pans of them every christmas holiday and give them to our neighbors.

Every year I make my Grandfather rosettes...his Mother made them when he was growing up and he had fond memories if them. They take all day long and use a ton of flour (King Arthur's unbleached flour)...plus standing over a deep fryer all day is no picnic...but it's worth it in the end.

I would use this flour to make fried chicken. Is that cheating??

I use KA flour to make my pie crusts. Speaking of which, I need to get to it. Store bought crust just doesn't cut it!

I would like to make candy cane cookies! You make two doughs (one red and peppermint flavored and the other white and sugar cookie) and twirl them together.
