Fun House S2, Ep 8... Lemon Thyme Butter Cookies

Fun House S2, Ep 8... Lemon Thyme Butter Cookies

Welcome to Muddy's Fun House: Super Fantastic At Home Bake-a-long and Variety Show... with your host, Kat from Muddy's!

(New to the Fun House? Here's a little FAQ about the show)

In S2; Ep 8, we make one of Kat's very favorite cookies to snack on, Lemon Thyme Butter Cookies!  A buttery shortbread-like cookie with a perky pop of citrus and fresh herbs.  YUM!  We also take our time in this episode to learn a bit about how to measure flour using both volume and weight measurements.

Yay for our patrons on Patreon!
They make this show possible AND they get some fun perks too.

Without further ado... here's our episode!
