Cookies, Bars, & Biscotti
If you’ve been baking (or just following) along with us, you may be surprised to see Cookies cropping up now. After all, we’re just finishing the Puff Pastry section, and Cakes come next in the book. But as our friend and fellow Modern Baker Kayte pointed out to me, the holiday season is fast approaching. And since most of us bake cookies over the holidays, she suggested flip-flopping the last two sections so we could start Cookies in December.
So, we will be baking from the Cookies, Bars, & Biscotti section from December through May of next year. As I’ve done previously, I am allotting enough time to this section so that you can make one recipe every week (with one “bye” week) and bake all the recipes in this chapter of the book.
I post my recipes on Mondays (I call it “Modern Baker Mondays”). Even though it’s not an official part of the Challenge, it helps keep me on track to get through the chapter in the allotted time. Feel free to join me by publishing your Challenge blog posts on Mondays, too, if you’d like. And whenever you make and blog a recipe, add a note to the Comments section for that recipe so we can link to it.
So, now it’s time to leave a comment below to claim your recipes for this section. There are plenty to go around, and I suspect most of us will end up as the official blogger for several recipes. If you want to claim more than one recipe, feel free. If we run short on recipes (not likely), I might ask you to give up your second (or third) choice so someone else can blog it.
