Dough, do it

So in between wrestling the ladder inside, setting up the overhead greenery-with-bells, cleaning the rug, wrestling the tree and ornament boxes back into the garage, getting the guest bathroom toilet to work that we’d simply turned the water off to to stop its leaking (yeah we paid that plumber $150. It lasted two days) and various laundry and cleaning, finally, this got done, too. I used the Russian rolling pin vendor’s second of two recipes (because there’s still no cream cheese here), weighing my sugar, flour and butter on what I think of as my yarn scale to get the right amounts.

Into the fridge. Tomorrow we roll with it.

(Really? You wired that to turn off in the garage? Why? Yes he did, and now a remote is on order to turn it off via his cellphone. It’s all geeks to me. But that does keep the control and plug for the bells out of baby reach.)

This is my first year making real Christmas cookies. Good to know I might need to refrigerate the dough…didn’t think of that! I can’t wait for my cookie cutters to arrive!

In baking news, today my daughter asked for my cardamom bun recipe. Uh –yeast bread and you want to try and START it tonight?

I found some online recipes since I “wing” mine and gave the useful yeast bread advice. I don’t think she recalls all that went into prepping the dough before the fun of shaping and baking.
