“Keep Calm
And
Bake Cookies”

Wind and rain has attacked most of the UK today. Reports are that one person has been killed in a freak hailstorm, the South Coast is being lashed with rain and floods and the North of the country is seeing a complete whiteout with Snow…

So what can you do? Bake cookies! Technically we cheated, and these are made from ready prepared dough courtesy of Waitrose. They even came with the cutter and decorations!

There were shortbread stars and gingerbread man – the Oranges from yesterday are no longer making the house smell Christmassy so this was a great replacement. I’m not sure what we can do on the orange thing – any suggestions to prolonging the beautiful smell would be gratefully received!

“We’re the wicked witch. We promise gingerbread, but we eat the little bastards alive.”
― Orson Scott Card

In the Spirit of Christmas – baking was undertaken and so the Gingerbread were born! The recipe used was a fairly simple one from the BBC – you can find it here if interested. Only we used salted Butter as we didn’t have any unsalted, and we neglected to put the pepper in which was optional anyway.

The biscuits consistency didn’t appear that promising, but with much rolling of the rolling pin, they turned out okay in the end! More flour was added as we went along to aid with everything too, possibly too much flour..!

The decorations, well they are an acquired taste. We made cute gingerbread people and then one had it’s leg fall off and some red smeared on it, so of course it became a zombie child. Fantastic!

Then there were ones decorated like snowmen, ones without a decorated purpose, and of course the inspiration behind it all – the gingerbread man toy from the kitchen! Sadly, none of them turned out like that one.
