Madison, WI (Currently in Canberra, Australia)
Give your baked creation a name and tell us about your flavors. Also, what are you most proud of?
Boat Knot Cookies. I used Paul’s recipe, but didn’t have caraway on hand. So I used fennel seeds and grabbed some star anise from my chai mix and crushed it with a rolling pin, since I lack a mortar and pestle, haha! Talk about making it work!
The key to this week’s challenge is your creative presentation. Describe your display.
It took me a while to decide how I could celebrate our great state. Since Wisconsin is home to so many lakes (more than Minnesota!!) I decided to pay homage to lake life and twist the cookies into some traditional boat knots.
It’s Wisconsin Week, so you need to showcase a super Wisconsin twist to your recipe and/or arrangement. Tell us about it.
Boating and lake living is so very Wisconsin. So I picked two boating knots, the Carrick Bend and the Flemish, that were aesthetically pleasing and let’s get real, easy-ish to execute.
How did you do?
