Initially, I wasn't too impressed when I read the baking of the week, but was simply glad it was not a lengthy operation as I went about the business of caring for a sick kitten and putting him in the hospital under observation for fevers both before and after neutering, about which I won't belabor further here.
You all have been so wonderful and generous with your prayers for Star💫, and we thank you!
These small Swedish ginger cookies are an elegant gingersnap, and next time I make them I will definitely pair them with goat cheese, and fig jam, as one of us sugggested. Mmmm. For now, however, I have packaged up all but a dozen to take to Star's Feline Vet tomorrow. The only thing time-consuming about them is not to forget they are in the freezer, and if I am smart I will always have some in the freezer since it takes half hour to make them from freezer position. I know that because I baked them this evening, and ruined my dinner by eating first dough, and then baked cookies.
|Add the spices -- ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, white pepper, 1/4 tsp cayenne, together|
|Now this is where the tasting gets seriously yummy|
This is a frozen cookie roll just out of its tube.
I took pictures of Mr. Lopez, and also larger pictures of the Swedish sugar that you see in mis en place. I posted it a few days ago somewhere, but all of you got it I think and found your own. Even the Belgian kind.
Tonight I took a picture of the cookies already sprinkled with their sugar, but can't locate that so will add later if it turns up, and the top pic shows how they looked. 90 % to Dr. Norsworthy. Ten percent for the girls at work without whom I couldn't survive!
Thanks for all of your immense patience with this disorganized post and your support of Star. Love you all!!!!!
