If you don’t consume spices in desserts during winter, you will freeze to death. So, a healthy dose of ground ginger and cinnamon are always welcome!

Day 6 of 12 Days of Baking: Coffee Sablé

I really love to bake cookies, especially this time of year (obviously), but I always get a bit stuck when searching for things to bake for the #12DaysofBaking series. I want to put out recipes that are new, and fresh, not like everything that’s bombarding the interweb during this month. As always, the answer is…
