It’s Black Friday. Many Americans are out shopping, hoping to get some bargains on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Me? I’m getting read to watch some football — and I’m also thinking about Christmas cookies.
Anyone who has read this blog for a while knows that, now that Thanksgiving is over, I’ll soon be doing my holiday baking. Last year I shared some of my favorite recipes and solicited new recipes from readers. This year I’m interested in doing so again.
Every year I like to try some new concoctions, experimenting while I listen to Christmas music. Does anyone have any suggestions for an erstwhile baker with middling talent who has basic implements, a willingness to risk utter failure, and not much else?
