A Philosophy of Baked Goods
November 22nd, 2011
When it comes to baked goods, I have a pretty simple mantra: Go Big or Go Home. As long as you’ve got the ingredients out, why not double the recipe? Or make a couple variations? Cookies, muffins, and scones all freeze well so there’s really no down side to have a lot of baked bread products on hand.
I took a few hours off work this afternoon so that I could dedicate myself to baking. I’d been tasked with bringing some edibles to my family’s Thanksgiving festivities and I took the challenge seriously. And when I take time off work, I expect to have something to show for it. Like nine dozen muffins.
I’ve got several dozen in the freezer for future breakfasts, several dozen packed and ready to head West tomorrow, and a few set aside to share with co-workers. There’s two varieties in there: pumpkin chocolate chip and spicy sausage and corn.
