Ginger Orange Booze Cookies, that is. While I had real ginger in the house, and could have coloured them orange with real turmeric root, I followed TC’s suggestion and made a ginger liqueur and triple sec chocolate chip cookie. Sweetened with agave, vegan, gluten-free, slow-food, housemade, local… No, I’m not trying to up my SEO. I’m being ironic.

Happy Boxing Day!
Because Audrey, Jr demanded sacrifice, the sourdough starter ended up in the traditional Christmas morning breakfast: Mile-High Cinnamon Roll Bread.
Coincidentally, my friend from Colorado enjoys the Mile High Cinnamon Roll bread immensely (the capital Denver is the Mile-High city). He chooses to violate it with cream cheese while I like it with Earth Balance. Whatever floats your boat, man.
Part II of Cooking with Gas, a series on recipes featuring hard liquor.
If there’s half a cup of water to replace 2 eggs, and the recipe is supposed to have alcohol, then that half cup of water is going to be alcohol. ‘Nuff said. Had I been pulled over while driving to an appointment with The Local Massage Therapist in Arlington, I probably would’ve registered above acceptable blood alcohol content after having a maple bourbon donut this morning. Not that I was driving recklessly–these donuts are just particularly alcoholic. The glaze contains a teaspoon of whiskey and the donuts taste like alcohol, most definitely. They’re good that way. The people who know these things keep telling me the GF alcohol I find is milder than the conventional types. I guess that’s good for me since extremes (salt, sweet, etc.) do a number on me. It was too late last night to figure out an alternate glaze that didn’t involve sugar, but I have ideas and 2/3 of a bottle of Queen Jennie sorghum whiskey with which to experiment. Queen Jennie is named after a bootlegger, and a distillery called Old Sugar makes it in Wisconsin. I had to special order it, after visitng and calling several liquor stores in the DMV region, and a bottle ran me $50. The list of distributors on the Old Sugar website is not accurate.
