  • Drop dead! pecan spice cookies [Betty Fussell]

    • jumali on February 05, 2020

      I love spice cookies, but this one is not my favorite because of the pecans. I prefer my spice cookies to be chewy, and the nuts seemed out of place. While the spice combination was great, it overpowered the taste of the pecans. Although the taste improved with age, I probably won't be repeating this recipe.

50+ recipes, short essays, and quotes from some of the best bakers, activists, and outspoken women in our country today—this cookbook encourages women to use sugar and sass as a way to defend, resist, and protest.

Since the 2016 election, many women across the country have felt rage, fury, and frustration, wondering how we got here. Some act by calling their senators, some write checks, some join activist groups, march, paint signs, grab their daughters and sons, and raise their voices. But for so many, they also turn to their greatest comfort—their kitchen.

Baking has a new meaning in today’s world. These days, baking can be an outlet for expressing our feelings about the current state of our society. Rage Baking offers more than 50 cookie, cake, tart, and pie recipes as well as inspirational essays, reflections, and interviews with well-known bakers and impassioned women and activists including Dorie Greenspan, Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, Carla Hall, Virginia Willis, Grace Young, Rupa Bhattacharya, Pam Houston, and Ani DiFranco.
