I have been interested in baking for quite some time now, and was looking for a new challenge, a 'project' that would inspire me to do new things. I thought long and hard on what the project should be like, until I read a blog where a lady worked her way though a Maida Heatter cookie book. The idea was so appealing to me, that I started browsing through my own cookbook collection, looking for a book that somehow stood out to me. The winner was Rose's Christmas Cookies by Rose Levy Beranbaum. I have tried a few recipes out of the book, and liked the results a lot. An added bonus for me is, that all ingredients are listed in weights, and the author's approach to baking, eye for detail and precise descriptions fit me like a glove.
So I decided to give it a go myself, and try to bake my way through (at least most) of the recipes.
Now I will just have to form a test panel, to get some different tastebuds involved besides our own to achieve more objective ratings :o). I'll try to make a recipe each week, time permitting, and will post results and hopefully pictures here.
