I’d love your help with a baking project. One of my favorite signs of the holiday season is The Washington Post‘s annual cookie bonanza: an issue of the Food section devoted to an absurd number of cookies, bars, and other seasonal sweets. This year’s insert appeared today and it was exciting. My Facebook feed was buzzing with people’s plans to bake until the butter ran out. Even though the Post is no longer my local paper, I spent an inordinate amount of time clicking through/drooling over each of the 25 recipes online. I wanted to make. them. all. And I actually thought about baking all 25… until I had the much saner, much better idea to ask you for help.
Here’s my idea: if you are interested in trying any of the 25 recipes in today’s Post (listed below with links to each recipe), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight this Friday, December 6. Let me know which recipe or recipes you’d be willing to try. On Saturday, December 7, I’ll let everyone know what they’re baking. Then you’ll bake your treat, take a picture, and email me a photo and your thoughts by midnight on Sunday, December 15. The week of the 15th, I’ll share your pics and stories.
To participate, you don’t have to be a blogger, you don’t have to live in the D.C. area, you don’t have to have a fancy camera (cell phone photos welcome), you just have to like to bake. Actually, you don’t even have to like to bake—there are a few no-bake recipes in the collection. Let me know if you’re game!
