Whether it’s scrapbooking, whittling, calligraphy, or cooking, the perfect time for a project is the weekend. And when it comes to winter weekends, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better option than baking. If it’s too chilly to step outside, pillowy loaves, towering cakes, and swirly rolls make delicious distractions. And ovens filled with cheese-stuffed breads or light-as-air cinnamon sugar puffs warm up kitchens faster than ancient radiators (in my experience). Plus, the mouth-watering scent of cookies magically quells any cabin-fever spats.
If you're looking for some baking inspiration, we've gathered 13 of our most project-worthy breads, cookies, and treats to warm you through the weekend.
