Ah, the week before Christmas is slowly winding down, well, not slowly, but I can wish. As usual, it's a continuous flurry of activity and baking. I finished the 25 gingerbread homes, and moved onto sugar cookies for the 25 students to decorate and then the 100 dozen or so of cookies and pumpkin bread to be shipped to family and friends. My kitchen is a zoo!
I can't believe we're finishing up our fourth week of baking! I usually make the same Christmas cookies every year, but the Baking Bible has inspired me to try something new, so about half of the cookies I made are new recipes from the book. Hopefully they'll be a hit with everyone, as I really enjoyed all of them.
I'm having technical difficulties with uploading pictures, but will have that fixed tomorrow. In the meantime, I just wanted to share the few pictures I have from my phone and say that after reading about some difficulties my fellow bakers were having, I found myself analyzing each step of the mixing process being careful not to miss anything! The results are definitely worth it, and hey....I don't even like coffee.
More to follow..........................
