Cookiepocalypse is nigh!!!

Well, it won’t happen this week. I have too much to do this week. But Cookiepocalypse 2018 is coming!

Now, if you’re asking yourself what the heck I am talking about, welcome to the funhouse. You must be new since last December. Allow me to explain.

Cookiepocalypse is what I call my annual holiday baking. I regularly make enough cookies to feel a small army. A good number of them are given away, but for the past couple of years, I have been recording my culinary feats of derring-do under the tag Cookiepocalypse.

This year, the expected goodie list included:

  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Carob chip cookies (because we have chocolate allergies in the house — the chocolate ones are for gifting)
  • Molasses cookies
  • Italian three-color cookies (a two day process. WORTH IT!!!!)
  • Biscotti (what kind depends on my mood when I go to the pantry. I’m thinking gingerbread this year. Or maybe maple walnut. Or both. Could be both.)
  • Thimble cookies (a shortbread base with some kind of jam in the center.)
  • Almond macaroons (a new recipe for me)
  • Mince cookies

And there might be some kind of surprise cookie thrown in, just because I catch a wild hare on baking day. Oh, and there will be struffuli on Christmas Eve. Because there has to be.

I will still be writing in and around this. Written in Water proceeds apace, and looks to be done sometime in the next six to eight thousand words — call it two to three chapters.  Then I need to do edits and prep the book to go live once the last chapter runs on Patreon, and get the ideas I have for Forged in Fire down on paper.

And in January I start Table of Stone, which will be the last book in Swords of Charlemagne.

And, in other news, I get to go back to the gym this week! I have to go in to the doctor on Friday for more xrays, to see how the toe is healing. At this rate, we won’t need lights on our Christmas tree — I’ll be glowing by the end of the month.

See you all next week!
