Baking Progress...

1. Peanut Butter Blossoms made with Erika's cookie recipe. Check. The cookie scoop I scooped up (okay, pun totally intended there) at Target made an even two dozen approx 2" cookies, but the cookie to chocolate ratio is off, so the next batch will be back to hand rolled and about half the size.

2. Gingerbread People (male & female cutters used). Check. Used the Joy of Cooking recipe. (Not the newest edition of the book, but the one prior. I have both. There are some significant differences between the two editions, and I reach for the older edition more than the newer.)

3. Coconut Macaroons. Check. This time, a double batch. Easy and low calorie - coconut, egg whites, a little flour and a little sugar, with a dash of salt and almond flavoring.

Thumbprint cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies and banana bread to come this afternoon.

I'm all baked out for now.

  1. Wowza, I'd say you made plenty of progress! Have fun eating those, and feel free to eat more than one of each. You know. For Science.
