I’ve been doing a bit of baking in lockdown:
- lemon bars
- a white cake from scratch with lemon frosting
- ginger crinkles
- bird’s nests (an Easter tradition)
- peanut butter oatmeal cookies.
The lemons came from my Christy’s Meyer lemon tree. She left them in a bowl outside her front door, for her friends and neighbors.
There were only four ingredients in the peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe: peanut butter; oatmeal, sugar, an egg. Perfect recipe for pandemic pantries.
