The first Wednesday of each month, this carnival has a theme, and this week it is cookies. The theme is only a suggestion, and any gluten free eating post is welcome, but if you have a cookie recipe to share with us, please add your link. If this is your first time participating, you can read the guidelines here.
Changes: Don’t get nervous, I’m not changing much, but the theme for February 3rd will be a little different than usual. Thursday I will have a post explaining what I mean, but basically I have a challenge for you to work on this month. Be sure to check back. I’ll also be posting December’s review later this week.
Now that the holidays are over and cold weather has set in (it has here at least), it’s a good time for baking. Many holiday cookies are great any time of year, so link up to a cookie post (or 2 if you wish), and we’ll have a nice selection to choose from when we want to try out a new recipe on a snow day.
My submission this week is snickerdoodles. Shirley’s comment on this post reminded me that if you like a soft cookie rather than a crisp one, I had one batch that turned soft after I left them overnight in a plastic container that was not well sealed. The cookies absorbed the humidity from the air. If you live in a very dry environment you could try adding a piece of bread to the container to see if the cookies will draw moisture from the bread. Keep an eye on them though, you don’t want them getting too moist.
