  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.

Peppermint Mug Chocolate Cakes
c/o Lauren's Latest
  • 10 tablespoons brownie mix
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • cool whip, for garnish
  • crushed candy canes, for garnish
  1. In a small bowl, mix brownie mix together with oil, egg, water and peppermint extract until well combined. Divide evenly between two greased mugs. Microwave on high 1 - 1 1/2 minutes or until cake starts to pull away from the sides and is puffed. (The cake should look moist still, but not like there's any batter left.) Cool 1 minute and remove from mug. Top warm cakes with cool whip and crushed candy canes. Serve immediately while still warm.

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of cayenne pepper *optional
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and incorporate evenly. To make a drink, fill cup with 1/3 cup of cocoa mixture and pour in 1 cup hot milk. Stir to combine and enjoy! You can also use water if you prefer.
