I baked cookies!
They turned out pretty well – even better because I added couple teaspoons of spices to make them more christmasy (1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger and a pinch of nutmeg).
I had never thought of colouring the dough instead of icing sugar cookies before, but they turn out so, so pretty.
As you may know, I’m not much of a baker, so whenever I get the urge to bake I end up having to improvise:
- You may notice that those cookies are drying on bamboo sushi mats (which is something I seem to unwittingly collect).
- I cut the little flowers out with little metal cutters that are really meant to cut out vegetables to decorate sushi (not so much cookies).
- I used a little glass to cut out the big round cookies, which is pretty tradtional, actually (I always think those round cookie cutters are kind of silly).
I think Alton Brown with his “no unitaskers” rule would be quite proud of me.
