Ciao, amici! Are you in the holiday spirit yet? I am. My daughter and her husband are coming home for Christmas, and I can’t wait to see them. Of course I’m making all her favorites (especially since she’s eating for two this year), so I started my baking a bit early.
I wish I had thought of this sooner, but I’m going to throw the idea out to you and see if you’re interested.
As I’m baking this weekend, I’m going to take photos of the steps as I go, then (of course) I’ll take a picture of the final product. Next Thursday, December 16, I will post on my blog the recipe and photos. If you’d like to join in, leave a comment below. On Thursday, you post your recipe and photos on your site. Message me the link in advance so I can have a master page with links to all our posts.
It’s not quite as good as a real cookie exchange would be, but we can all end up with a bunch of new recipes to try. Bonus if you share a story or tradition with your post.
Like I said, I’m sorry I didn’t think of this sooner. But I hope you think it’s a fun idea and want to join in. If I’m the only one, I’ll still post my recipe for you. And if we get a lot of participation, we could make this a yearly thing. Thoughts on that?
Anyway, those of you who are interested, say so below. I’ll start the master list.
Happy baking! Grazie!
