This year, I would like to bake more cookies. I really enjoy baking, and I really enjoy cookies, so it seemed like the perfect project to take on this year. Especially with last year being so limiting in what I was able to comfortably eat, I feel like I earned a year of cookies!!
I was a little wishy-washy about how many batches would be my goal. At first I was thinking a batch a week, but I didn't want to gain a hundred pounds. Then I was thinking to do every other week, but even that seemed like quite a large amount of cookies. But one per month didn't seem like enough! So I settled on 15 batches for 2015, because I like the ring of it! However, I am welcome to make more and exceed my goal, of course!
I have the Martha Stewart Cookies book, which is one of my go-to's for recipes.
I have already made 2 batches of cookies from this book. The first was Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies, which were so delicious and amazing. I kind of want to make 15 batches of these!
|The second was Orange-Cardamom Madeleines. But, lacking a Madeleine pan, I used a bunny pan, and a cupcake pan.|
These I was a little disappointed in, mostly due to the fact that Martha and I must have differing definitions of what comprises a cookie. These are most definitely little cakes. They were tasty, but not a cookie. I am still debating if I count this as part of my intention. I guess we shall see how many I am at come December!
