My post about breads and cookies for spring is a bit late, but still worth a read. In fact, the baked goods can be made year round!
Challah bread always seemed intimidating to make when I first began baking bread. In 1986, a friend wrote this detailed recipe and reminded me it wasn’t difficult to make and not to let it scare me. I’ve been making the braided bread since then, following her step by step instructions. I also made King Arthur’s English Muffin Toasting Bread which is simple and good for breakfast. Bread is the staff of life.
One of my favorite cookie recipes are Cream Wafers made with lots of butter and a bit of cream. The recipe is from my 1970’s General Mills recipe cards and always a seasonal favorite.
