merry christmas and happy chanukah from pete bakes! i hope you’re having a happy holiday, and if you’re not too cookied out yet, i hope you make your family some of these cinnamon crackle cookies. they go perfectly with a cup of cocoa or coffee after a long day of entertaining, and might just cause your guests to go back and reward you with a few more gifts.

i’m writing this post from my parent’s house in beautiful and freezing king of prussia, pennsylvania on christmas eve, and the house is bursting at the seams with cookies. my mom bakes 18 (seriously) different types of cookies every year. so yeah, i’ll be coming back with some new recipes.

the citrus and the cinammon work together perfectly, and although they literally crackle into a million pieces when you bite down, it’s nothing a quick dunk in a big mug of cocoa won’t fix. speaking of cookies, i hear some pitzels and pressed almond tuiles calling my name right now, so i’ll just say have a safe and delicious holiday!

    Sponge cakes are thought to be the first of the non-yeast-based cakes and rely primarily on trapped air in a protein matrix (generally of beaten eggs) to provide leavening, sometimes with a bit of baking powder or other chemical leaven added as insurance. Such cakes include the Italian/Jewish pan di Spagna and the French Génoise. Highly decorated sponge cakes with lavish toppings are sometimes called gateau; the French word for cake.,
