When I was an impoverished graduate student, I decided to bake cookies for holiday gifts. That first batch wasn’t pretty, but they made a lot of people smile. I haven’t stopped baking since.
At the time, I owned a biscuit cutter, a hand-me-down cookie sheet, and an $8 hand mixer. I used canned buttercream frosting and store-bought tubes of icing. I learned by trial and error (and by reading other people’s cookie blogs.) Over the years, I have learned lots of new tricks, acquired lots of new tools, and stumbled upon fantastic new (and old) recipes.
When I am not baking cookies in my Washington, DC kitchen, I am a pollster, author, and home renovation weekend warrior. Learn more at ericaseifert.com
