I should not have typed the other day that the oven was still working fine. Nope. I put in one tray, thank God it was just one tray, of the Snowballs. Snowballs are the first cookie I bake every Christmas. It is my little tradition. I set the temperature and set the timer for 10 minutes. I am preparing the next tray of snowballs and I smell something burning. I look at the stove timer and it is has 6 minutes to go. I open the stove and look at the cookies and the bottoms are black!
Now you have to imagine what the kitchen looked like. I was planning on baking all but one kind of cookie today. I had all my mise en place ready to go.
There was no way I was going to risk the time and money baking in that oven. So I mixed the dough for 3 of the cookies and froze them.
Dinner tonight was a large 1/2 Sausage and Pepper and 1/2 Eggplant Pizza from New Haven Apizza & Bakery. I got the large so we can have leftovers tomorrow night.
I can not believe I have to wait a week for the new stove.
