baking marathon

while at my mom's i ended up with an empty day... so i did a lot of baking. in this photo you can see a variety of cookies (peanut butter, cherry chocolate, gingerbread, apricot) and banana muffins.

oddly my mom has spent years adapting recipes to take whole wheat flour and honey, but now can't eat those things. so i had to reconvert some recipes back to sugar and white flour. 1 cup of sugar is about the same sweetness as 1/2 cup of honey, but then you have added another dry ingredient rather than liquid. so some liquid generally had to be added (apple sauce , yogurt). for the most part they came out well despite this need for adapting, although i think the gingerbread cookies (which went from molasses to brown sugar) were pretty bland.
