Yes, it’s Christmas Eve., and no I haven’t posted anything since December 1st, but in my defense the entire month has been consumed with prepping, baking, decorating, and cleaning for Christmas (and sister’s impending nuptials). I took several pictures, but between mixing, kneading, pinching and icing, my attention has been diverted otherwise.
However…what I am about to post is probably my proudest concoction of the whole month, and profoundly one of the most special to me. My boyfriend and I watch A LOT of Dr. Who. We’re dorks, and just a little obsessed… It’s just sooooo good (though I still stand by that the David Tennant Dr. is better than the Matt Smith Dr…well, maybe not better, but its kinda like having two brothers you really dig, but ya miss one when the other’s gone…but I digress).
Sooooo….as a surprise, and as a supplement to the Dr. Who flask I had custom engraved for him, I got it into my head to make Dr. Who character Gingerbread Cookies. Here’s the recipe I used, originally from Cook’s Illustrated. It’s absolutely amazing, though I recommend when you get to the point of cutting that you keep the dough as cool as you can. It just cuts better. Also…I’m mostly delighted with how they came out. Next time I’ll have to work on the icing consistency.
Enjoy the pictures!
