Hi there! I love the Farmer's

Hi there! I love the Farmer's Almanac cookbooks. I've baked a number of recipes from the Baking cookbook and all of them have turned out to be easy and delicious. So far the only mistake I've noticed is that for the Gingersnap recipe, no baking temperature is given. Just wanted to mention that. But excellent recipes!

Oh, my cookies! You are

The Editors's picture

Oh, my cookies! You are absolutely correct! We did omit the baking temp on the Gingersnaps, and you are the first one to let us know. We wish there were a prize for such a discovery...but please accept our grateful appreciation and sincere apology instead.
The desirable temperature would be 350°F, and keep an eye on the cookies, as directed.
We are thrilled to hear that other recipes bring you great satisfaction. We had great fun putting this cookbook together. Perhaps we should have put the cookies down and picked up the red correction pen more often... All the best and thanks heaps for your comments.

Hi there, happy new year!! No

Hi there, happy new year!! No problem at all, I figured the Almanac staff would like to know. The Gingersnap recipe was delicious and all of my family and even the picky dog loved them! I just have a question about the Buttermilk Biscuits recipe. In the ingredients, it says 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold buttermilk. Often in other scone recipes, the extra 2 tablespoons are for bushing on top before putting them in the oven, so that's what I did (even though it didn't say to). Do you know if the 2 tablespoons are supposed to be mixed in, or meant for brushing? Thanks! :)
