A Christmas Cookie Clue?

Leave a comment

Folks, you may have been wondering what happened to your favorite blogger.  Rather than making excuses about being busy with work, a research project, and more, I’ll just say I haven’t been completely idle blogging-wise.  The good folks at The Historical Cooking Project gave me a chance to write a guest post.  Since it’s summer time, what else would I write about but the Christmas cookie recipe in Amelia Simmons’s 1796 cookbook?  Is it a clue to who the elusive author was?
