This is the end to a wonderful journey through Dorie Greenspan's book Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. I started with the group three and a half years ago. The first year I participated every week, but then had a few slack off periods. I missed my first opportunity to host but was able to host later on. Dorie has been very encouraging to our group along the way. I have learned so much from all the other bakers, and wonderful friendships have grown along the way. I'm not a fabulous baker by any stretch, and a worse photographer, but it has been a journey I am glad I took.
The kids thumprints were very easy. I chose not to roll them in chopped peanuts and I added some chocolate morsels to the centers instead of jam. I love peanut butter and chocolate so it was a no brainer for me to do that.
Be sure to check out the other bakers at http://tuesdayswithdorie.wordpress.com/
We will be starting a new book and group in February. I received the book for Christmas and am anxious to flip through and check out the recipes.
Thank you to Laura and Julie for managing the group for four years!! They did an excellent job. And thank you to all the bakers in the group that encouraged me along the way with your sweet comments, emails and tweets. Love you all!! Happy New Year!!
