Week 2: Cookies
Starts: Monday, June 19, 2017
Ends: Sunday, June 25, 2017
Last week’s challenge was a piece of cake! So, Mary and Paul have stepped things up this week with three biscuit challenges. Here in Wisconsin, saying the word “biscuit” reminds us of chicken, glazed-ham, gravy and doggie treats.
So, we’re calling this week’s challenge what it really is: Cookies.
Week 2: Cookies Challenges
You only need to select one to participate.
Signature Challenge — Iced Cookies
Make 24 identical cookies that are perfectly crisp and have a delicate icing. The cookie should make a nice sound when it hits the plate.
Bake 12 identical whirls filled with buttercream and jam of your choice (maybe Wisconsin cherry or apple?). Think of this as a British Oreo. Cookies should be baked in a beautiful swirl. Buttery, crumbly — almost dissolves in the mouth.
Your creation must describe something about your Wisconsin life, be at least 12 inches high and involve at least 8 characters or objects. We can’t wait to see your results.
Each week, we’ll issue three baking challenges based on the upcoming new episode of The Great British Baking Show — this way you’ll have a chance to test yourself against the show's contestants as you watch. However, you will only have to select one of our three challenges to bake. Then we'd like you to add a "Wisconsin twist" to your recipe or decoration. Be creative!
