I think I’m gearing up for another baking session this weekend. I don’t know why I’ve become so interested in baking in the last couple of weeks, but my husband is loving it.
Earlier this week I found a few more recipes that I’d like to try making this weekend. One of them is the Cinnamon Swirl Brioche that I mentioned a few days ago, and the rest are cookies.
In particular I plan on making three types of cookies this weekend.
One cookie is called a Sugar Crackle Gingerbread Cookie. It’s not a gingerbread man cookie it’s a round cookie and it looks delicious. I love gingersnaps and other types of ginger cookies and the recipe for this cookie sounds delicious. The second cookie recipe that I’d like to try is a recipe that I found on Southern Plate called “Dishpan Cookies”. The cookies are made with oatmeal and cornflakes and they look like huge old fashioned oatmeal cookies.
The last cookie recipe that I plan to make is “Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies”. Mmmmm Decadent sounding. I love nothing more than chocolate and these cookies look delicious.
I think my house is going to smell fantastic again this weekend. Oh and I’m sure everything will be covered in flour again too – including my danze faucet! That’s the one thing I don’t like about cooking and baking – the cleaning or clean up.
We can’t really afford to buy a lot of Christmas presents for our family this year, but since I’m on a baking spree (and we have most of the ingredients I’m using here at home already so it’s not costing much) maybe I’ll make up some “home made” presents. That might work.
