I love when the calendar turns to December. All that November waiting vanishes in an instant and we can set our sights on Christmas. Wish lists, baking lists, decorating, entertaining…)
My daughter started playing Christmas music the day after Remembrance Day, a tradition she has held for a surprisingly long time considering she’s only 14. She is also a lover of lists so her Christmas list appeared on the dining room table a couple of weeks ago. She wrote out another yesterday and I may put her in charge of a list for her brother, too, since he’s less inclined to writing.
In the midst of all that seasonal prep, we have some dinner parties with friends for which I have volunteered to bring dessert. (The molasses girl always gets dessert.)
In keeping with the season, and with the overwhelming desire to share the coziest of desserts with friends, I will bring gingerbread. The challenge? Deciding just which gingerbread to bake since we have so many to choose from on this website.
So many, in fact, that we have just pulled together volume two of our Gingerbread Favourites — a second eBook devoted to all things gingerbread.
In this new Gingerbread eBook you’ll find 12 ways to enjoy gingerbread spices, including five gingerbread cakes. And because that irresistible gingerbread flavour isn’t only for cakes, we have also included gingerbread muffins (two kinds), whoopie pies and a few other treats for you to enjoy over the Holidays.
(This new cookbook was created as an eBook only so we don’t have printed copies.)
