    Posted: 16/December/2009 at 1:43pm
Any interesting specialties?  I'm making Finnish pulla for my boyfriend's heritage.  It's a super rich cardamom bread and was delicious in the test run this weekend.  I'm also making liebkuchen for my germanness.  I flaked out on springerle though I have 2 molds now. 

Also making jam thumbprints, candy cane cookies and, lest I risk death at the hands of family , sugar cookies.  

Anyone else?

Not true. Cookie exchanges have rules. 1 dozen begets you 1 dozen. etc. etc.

Citizen, I cook. Just not often. For two it's just not worth it some times.

Actually since times have been a bit leaner we've been cooking in more than ever.

I do love to cook, when someone else comes in and cleans it up....and preps the hard stuff (ala Chopping Block in the Merchandise Mart...fun times there).

I hear that.  I seriously, seriously want a maid someday that only comes in to put my clothes away and finish cleaning the blender.  I actually enjoy sweeping, mopping, scrubbing... just not those particular things and certainly no organizing. 

I managed to put up a double batch of sugar cookie dough and am still a little faint at the possibility of running out. 

To the liebkuchen!

the liebkuchen didn't turn out quite... right.  too crisp so far.

I'll take the wine... but I'm a stickler when it comes to at least once reproducing the traditional product.  If you've had liebkuchen, it should be soft and almost sticky.  It's an oddity - spices, citrus, cocoa and very little butter.
