Binge Baking

Something is wrong. I don't know what, where, or who, but there's one of those annoying feelings that something is wrong, and it's caused me such discomfort that at 1:30 this morning I went down to the kitchen and baked oatmeal cookies. I'm not sure if it's an act of appeasement, since I'm not an appeasing sort of person, but I did feel a bit better after baking cookies, which is no easy task when the house has excellent accoustics and the people sleeping upstairs can hear (and smell) Davros, the microwave, water running for the clean-up, and the banging of baking sheets going in and out of the oven. Oatmeal cookies with maple syrup and cinnamon would probably appease at least a minor boggart... maybe...
This afternoon, I was talked into doing more baking, so I produced a batch of pecan scones. And I also proved that tinfoil isn't an impermeable substance, though how butter gets through the tinfoil and onto the baking sheet is beyond me.

The scones look so delicious - I'm imagining them with a nice Assam tea and cinnamon-coloured plates... (No, I'm not imagining eating the plates)
