Mmmm, can you smell it in the air? I’m not talking about late fall crispness, wood burning fireplaces or even holiday spirit. I’m talking about the smell of holiday baking. It’s that time of year everyone, and I can just smell the cookies, rolls, cakes, and other delights baking in the air. And since I haven’t started baking yet, these smells are mostly wishful thinking on my part.
As I’ve made clear, I love holiday treats, and cookies are foremost on this list. I like traditional holiday cookies like cutout cookies, but I also like more normal cookies as well as ones from foreign countries. However, I often wonder why holiday baking tends to begin and end at cookies – with the occasional fruitcake thrown in. Shouldn’t there be more holiday delights? Like brownies for instant.
Now that I’ve tipped my hat, let’s be clear: I love brownies! I don’t think they are given their due in baking culture, and this especially is true during the holidays. Peppermint brownies anyone? Maybe some gingerbread brownies too? Why not? If people can put ginger and chocolate together in fancy dark chocolates, then I think this could be a winning holiday combo.
That’s not to say I like brownies better than cookies. Or maybe I’ll do. I’ll leave that up for you to decide. However, I do think cookies and brownies should be held up equally highly, so I decided to write a quiz about them both!
Let’s get down to it: Are You a Brownie or a Cookie? Yes, you may love them both like I do, but you can only be one. Let me know what you get on this tasty quiz and also if you think holiday brownies should be a thing 🙂
