I wish every day could be Baking Day, but I think today will make up for that. I have Tim (sourdough starter) sitting on the counter, bubbling away for Panettone. The dried fruit has been soaking in booze and flavor extracts overnight in preparation.
I went to the store last night to stock up on baking supplies. I spent about $130 on them! Bag of sugar, 2 bags of flour, 2 cartons of eggs, 8 packages of butter (hey, they were 2/$3 so I bought extra), various baking chips, dried fruit, nuts, Rice Crispys, peanut butter, and on and on.
Here's the list of goodies I'm hoping to make. I'm not sure if it's all going to happen, but I'm going to give it the ole college try:
Peanut Butter Cookies
Rice Crispy Treats
Shortbread with mini chocolate chips
Cinnamon Nut Palmiers
Food for the Gods (rich cake/bar thing found on PW cooks)
Monster Cookies (or Everything Cookies or whatever you want to call them)
and bread of some sort for the neighbors. I'm thinking Cinnamon Raisin bread.
Whew. I'm exhausted already. OH! And I'm tempted to make Sugar Cookies because they're so yummy and fun to decorate. Hm. Not sure about that, but we'll see how it goes.
Wish me luck! And yep, I'll post some pics and recipes later.
