Ella's Coconut Carrot Muffins

My niece made these while we were there and they are awesome! Also, she made the recipe up. These are so good, I can't wait to make them again.
Ps. She's 13!

2 1/4 cup flour
1 TB baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
2 sticks butter, melted
1/2 cup shortening or coconut oil
2 1/2 cup shredded carrot
2 cups shredded coconut
2 tsp vanilla

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a second bowl, mix sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and melted butter. Add dry mixture to the wet, along with shortening, carrot, coconut, and vanilla.

Fill 18 muffin cups and bake at 350' for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Thanks Ella!!!

Christmas treats

Sugar cookies, oatmeal fudge bars, and lime meltaways.

Huge time saver this year ~ I shaped the sugar cookies into rolls of circles, triangles, and squares. Then I just sliced them to bake and decorated as ornaments, Christmas trees, and presents, respectively. No rolling out the dough!
