The holiday party at work was today which means that I spent my weekend doing some baking… I adore the gingerbread recipe from the Moosewood Book of Desserts – so yummy – I really like my gingerbread or molasses cookies to be really spicy and these?
Are. That’s a ton of ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and…cayenne! Yum! And, after completely disassembling my kitchen to find them (honestly, how is it possible to lose something in there – it can’t be much bigger than I am!), I finally got to use my dinosaur cookie cutters:
There is a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Stegosaurus, a Triceratops, a Pterdactyl (or Pteranodon – I can’t remember the difference…), a Brachiosaurus (or Apatosaurus, again I don’t remember how to tell them apart), and a little Anklyosaurus. I love them!
They weren’t too big of a hit at the party – my Borders friends spoiled me with their enthusiasm toward my mad baking skillz – so I’m a little sad, but it means I have leftovers for me now!
