Another Baking Day in P.A. (Warning: Long POst) - cjs - 07-05-2013

What a fun morning, but this old broad is dragging now, let me tell you!

This is what I did:
Baking day in P.A. – leftover egg whites from making Gelato yesterday went into Oregon Hazelnut (except I didn’t have Hazelnuts/used walnuts) Meringue Bits. They are Gluten free for those interested. Great flavor!

Oregon Hazelnut Meringue Bits

3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Oregon hazelnuts -- finely chopped
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1/3 cup saltine cracker crumbs

Beat egg whites and salt until very stiff. Add sugar slowly and keep beating. Fold in Oregon hazelnuts, chocolate and cracker crumbs. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 13 to 15 minutes at 350ºF.

Still trying to master making rolls/buns that we are happy with – close today. Sourdough N.E. Hot Dog Rolls – adapting one recipe to the method of another caught me off guard a little; I used a little too much dough in the pan, so will try again (after these are enjoyed) with maybe ~8 oz. less dough. I have the neatest baking pan for these.

Leftover dough from making hot dog buns went into a small loaf of bread and can’t wait to slice into this one.

Wile I was baking, I had lots of l/o soaked Mesquite/Apple chips, so smoked/roasted a half chicken for quite a few dinners later this week.

Whew – my kitchen smell delightful and I feel really fulfilled!! Now to the courtyard, a glass of wine and my book.

Jean, everything looks amazing! I absolutely love meringue cookies, so I never make can count how long they last around here in minutes, and I'm trying to avoid expanding, y'know?

Enjoy your wine and book!

Everything looks so good, Jean. Especially that loaf of bread!
