I took this picture about a week ago.
I like it because it gives you the impression that I do my dishes on a regular basis and that my countertops are not dusted or encrusted with flour all the time.
Looking at the eggs, there, I can tell I was planning to make the springerle. I quintupled the recipe, so I needed 20 eggs. I didn’t make all 5 batches in one go, though – I doubled, doubled, and did one single recipe. In case you were worried about dough overflow.
Today I’ve got almond stars to make, and then I need to ice the lebkuchen, and with those two tasks completed, all the 6 German cookie recipes will be done. After that I’m “free” to play around and bake whatever the heck I want to bake.
My sister has put in a request for those peanutbutter cookies with a Hershey kiss in the center, so I’ll be making those. I also need to do something chocolate.
I’ve also got a few other non-baking food gifts I want to make, so perhaps I’ll tackle those as well.
No matter what, it should be a day of wonderful smells in my house!
So, what are you doing today?
