DSC_2030 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
