For those who say baking is an art, I wholeheartedly disagree. With all those precise instructions, baking is a science and the only thing I leaned in chemistry class is that I am in awe of a soapstone counter. Other than this, baking is just too “bossy” for me. I think the best deserts are finger foods. We seldom finish a cake, or pie without it going all wonky on us. However, can’t remember the last time a cookie was tossed. Cookies come in so many varieties, will compliment most menus, happily wait on the counter for their time to arrive and give each of us control over how much we partake. But I’m still not going to spend hours baking them!
