The baking thread is chug, chugging along, despite the fact that many bakers (myself included) tend to be less inclined to bake during the summer months. I am about to start baking a ton of cookies and brownies to send to college with my son, who leaves a week from today -- the 22nd of August. Between his roommate and his teammates, I figure that I will have a lot of baking to do in the next several months. I will be experiencing the shipping of baked goods for the first time ever.
Fresh fruit desserts? Berry pies? Peach crisps and crumbles? How is summer's bounty (and heat) influencing your baking this month?
