Frisian Gingerbread



Please turn your attention to Hollands' North sea coast, Friesland, one of the Netherlands' northern provinces.

Spiced Honey Rye

Week two of: "The Rye Baker" Challenge takes us to the French countryside. This French interpretation of gingerbread is lighter and quick to make due to the chemical leavening. I found it just sweet enough to go with your favorite jams or savory toppings. Another winner brought to us 
by Stanley Ginsberg!
