I wonder how many creepy onlookers we'll get with these kind of headlines! Of course we're not making babies, nor are we baking babies... We joined Gretchen in her kitchen this month, she drafted from her sweet memories of Peru and provided us with a recipe and a beautiful story behind the Tanta Wawa's we're baking this month.
Referring you to her post for the story and the recipe, I'm a bit pressed for time at the moment (really should have posted yesterday, oops). I just wanted to show you the arts and crafts that made my dough into eeh... well... what can I say? The one baby I thought I had fabricated was christened a bug by my sons, the whale morphed into a shark when transferred from workbench to cookie sheet and I won't even show you the lovely lady-doll that became a Dancing Derwisj during baking... Luckily there's one nice lady left.
The dough itself was dry by account of my fellow Babes, I ended up with a very soft and smooth Play-doh, guess I used more liquid and my use of a liguid butter product helped it tip over to a very soft dough. It didn't rise much. Or... didn't rise at all! Hours later not an inch! Shaped, set to proof, again... nothing. Baked and yes we have movement.
All the figurines ended up with nice full bellies -and some cracks-. The smell however was wonderful!
