Holiday Season of Baking

White Bread (Finished)

I can safely say I've baked enough to feed a town. Maybe a small town in Montana. I have been gluten free for a while, so imagine the fun I had baking every thing with so much gluten it was deliciously sinful.

White Bread (Baking)
I baked so many types of cookies, including one gluten free version. I made sludge. Well, it was fudge that I'd adjusted and it was a failed chemistry experiment, until I froze it and it set!

I made bread. Raisin Bread that is sort of like German Kaffee-Kuchen mit Rosinen. I made white bread - two loaves. I made Raspberry thumbprint cookies. Polvorones (Pecan Mexican Wedding Cakes). Maple Pecan Granola - my favorite 3-pound granola, which is thus named because I typically gain 3 pounds when I've eaten through a batch.

The only thing I didn't do was the icing mess with kids, decorating sugar cookies (sorry girls, but you'll know I meant to and then, skiing became a priority).

Here's wishing you all a wonderfully delicious 2016.
