baking...


Happy Monday to you! These Chewy Molasses-Spice Cookies get a spot on our list each year. I'd love to hear what you've been baking and making! Please consider leaving a link to one of your favorite simple holiday recipes in the comment section. Wouldn't that be fun to see everyone's tried and trues?!

If you feel like hearing me ramble on a bit... a quite long bit if you want to know the truth... you can go listen to Craftsanity's latest Podcast... my first recorded interview. Pin It

  15. Snow on the ground, cozy fire on the hearth, and cookies baking-what can get better than that! Here are 2 of my favorite standbys I just made for a cookie exchange- the BEST FUDGE COOKIES with a peppermint twist, and SUPER EASY TOFFEE. Recipes and photos @ www.pegscrayonbox.blogspot.com. Oh yes, also made 2 batches of Super Flax Whole Wheat Bread from Vegetariantimes.com site where there are fabulous recipes for everything healthy. Does my house smell good, or what! Happy Holidays to all, Peg
    PS to Maya- check out p. 60-61 of latest STUDIO to see.....ME and my space!

  16. I made these cinnamon toasted almonds for the first time this year. But I think they'll become a holiday tradition. Easy and everyone seems to have fond memories of them from the fair. Good prices on nuts at costco and ok prices on nuts at trader joes.

  18. On Sunday we baked the same cake that we baked a year ago almost exactly, it's so simple & tasty, it's a yogurt + apple cake, even a child could make it ! I shared the recipe earlier this year : http://cozyhomemaking.blogspot.com/2009/01/bakeacake.html
    LOVED the interview, Maya, and am soon off to bed with the laptop to savor it all, in its entirety.
    xoxoxo you are the best

  24. But what goes well with cookies?
    Tea-infused hot chocolate! I just bought some Vanilla Sleepytime tea to try this out with. ~H

  25. okay got some of these cookies in the oven...but when I mixed them they never have gotten to a dough-like consistency. They are really goopy when I try to roll them into a ball. Thoughts/suggestions?

  26. Aimee, maybe your butter was too soft. You might add a tiny bit more flour to experiment. Good luck!

  27. I can't wait to try out that recipe. Thank you for sharing. Come and visit me at my little page. I have just posted some recipes I have been working on this week. Oh how I wish we had fresh cranberries in Australia. Your wreath looks lovely.
    Happy holidays.
