Since having baby number two, well wait, since getting pregnant with baby number two, I haven’t actually baked a lot. That makes me sad. When I had an opportunity to snatch up a copy of Cookie Love: 60 Recipes and Techniques for Turning the Ordinary into the Extraordinary by Mindy Segal, I got kinda giddy. As I was looking through the book, I realized I needed a challenge. I mean, because raising two young daughters isn't challenging enough, right? I thought it sounded like a good idea.
Challenge: Make one cookie each week until I make all the cookies in the book.
Sound fun? Well my friends and family think so. I’m going to start with the first cookie and go in order until I've made them all. I tend to stay away from difficult or time consuming recipes, but this wouldn't be a challenge if it were easy, now would it?
So tomorrow, I’ll post my first cookie...the snickerdoodle.
