Last weekend it finally dipped below 80 on Saturday evening so I gleefully switched on the oven and mixed up some cookie batter. I haven’t baked for months and months because it was just too hot (and humid for most of that time too) and having the oven on for an extended period of time would be ridiculously self-punishing. I love chocolate chip cookies, but I wanted something with a bit more oomph. In addition to pecans and oatmeal these include several spices and orange zest, which seemed a bit strange but works quite well. Here’s the recipe I used and I highly recommend it.
Unfortunately, my plans to bake this weekend went unrealized as it was back up to almost 100 degrees and I just couldn’t bear to heat up the house.
Have you baked anything lately?
