Baking Challenge

Gingerbread Structure

Give your biscuits a name and tell us about your recipe.

Fairyland Ginger Spice Hut – I used a classic gingerbread cookie recipe which is easily molded over a bowl and baked to delicious crispness. We have a fairy village under the pine trees near the pond . . . which provided my inspiration for this bake. I needed to add walls inside to provide strength because the humidity softened the dough.

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

Rogue, for sure!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

As usual, I used local eggs and honey, but I credit the fairy village with the final inspiration.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
