I’m hard at work today, at the holiday baking. The photo above was taken in the middle of preparing Dutch spice cookies, a perennial favorite. The little round balls of dough are ready to be pressed and then baked.
I picked a good day for the 2011 version of Baking Day. It’s rainy, cold, and dreary in Columbus — an excellent day to be inside, playing Christmas music, working around a hot oven, and sampling the new creations.
