ITJB Round Two Week 1: Sour Cream Spritz Cookies (4/28/12 - 5/5/12)

I love spritz cookies. For me they are forever associated with Christmas, when my mom would make plates and plates of tree-shaped ones, almond-flavored and impossibly addictive. So I'm looking forward to expanding my spritz-cookie repetoire, and also finding a way to expand their presence into non-holiday seasons as well (it's sort of a shame that I only have them at Christmas. May feels so left out!) I also figured that these would be a relatively simple entree into this semester's baking. 

Looking forward to this new semester and everyone's experiences!

I'm getting ready for a sizable family gathering in about 10 days. We are descending on my baby brother, who has a vacation home on the Northern California coast. We expect 15-20 hungry Snyders. I'll be baking while I'm up there, but we'll need something to snack on while the levain is ripening. So, I baked a few things to fend off starvation ... 



A couple Gérard Rubaud sourdough bâtards



Some San Joaquin Sourdough, of course



To go with appetizers, a few San Joaquin Sourdough mini-baguettes with seeds



I'm promised corned beef, if I bring the Corn Rye


And, if there's room, for dessert ...



Sour Cream Spritz Cookies, a New York Baker's test recipe (They go well with tree-ripened peaches.)


Lucky there's another day left to bake this weekend!
