Okay, since no one guessed, it was bagel dough (surprising? Probably not).

But then I also made these delicious little hand pie babies (I don’t know how the only picture I have of the 2 dozen I made is one pan before baking):

If these had lemon fillings I would probably eat them until I explode.

Curd, pie filling, whatever floats your boat. The more intensely lemon the better! Those shitty frosted lemon pies in the wax wrappers you could buy at the register at the grocery store were my absolute favorite fat kid treat growing up.

Anyone got any weekend baking plans? I don’t have anything specifically on the docket… But that might change soon!

Aw, sorry to hear all of that, Supe! In the leggo household, we actually only eat bagels once a week, a ritual Saturday brunch tradition. I find myself baking more bagels these days as I’ve also been sharing some of my bagels with Mr. leggo’s aunt and uncle.

I tried yet another new shaping technique (that of Alton Brown in his Serious Eats episode about bagels) and was super impressed with the rise. There was a bit of a learning curve to this technique, but the results were quite fantastic!

I also made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies last weekend, but apparently didn’t take any photo evidence. In any case, they were really good!

And now, a change of pace from the usual baking postings of one leggo….

I am now a pie baker!

It’s an apple pie with an all-butter crust. The filling was delicious, but my crimping could use a bit of improvement. In any case, it was quite tasty and enjoyed by all who got a slice! The birthday boy (my dad) claimed the extra slices at the end.

I see more pies in my future now that I own a pie plate!

Just one pie plate? 🤣😉 I think I have 3-4 glass ones in a couple sizes and a pamerered chef stoneware one.
I have never baked a pie from scratch before this, and don’t do the whole gazillion pies for holidays thing (yet). Mine’s a $10 glass one that was the only option at my local coop. Haha!

I generally don't like cakes, pies, cookies, pastries, crumbles, muffins, cupcakes, or really any kind of sweets. BUT I WILL DESTROY SOME RICE KRISPIES TREATS.
Brown butter rice krispy treats are where it’s at! Or any rice krispy treats by @snickerd3, obviously!

Give me a three day weekend at home, and I will do as much of things with dough as I can! Sourdough bagels, two loaves of sourdough bread, approximately 40 momo with homemade dumpling dough wrappers (super easy, but very time consuming to make and totally worth it all), and now, not a dough, but a lemon yogurt cake!
