The first recipe for the group – Honey Beescotti – calls for candied orange peel. The book suggests buying it – but in case you want to make it (it seems rather simple), I found some great posts on making candied organge peel with gorgeous photos.
Check out Jen of Use Real Butter’s post.
And, the Way the Cookie Crumble’s post (using Jen’s recipe).
And, if you want a small yield, check out Giada’s recipe on the Food Network Site here.
Happy baking and see you Sunday.

The winner of the Sweet Melissa Baking Book is Jamie of Good Eats N’ Sweet Treats. Congrats Jamie. Your book will be shipped directly from Amazon and should arrive on Wednesday.
Thanks everyone for playing and for your interest in this new baking group. Amazon has some discount new and used books so check it out. I will scan the first recipe and can email it to you if you would like to see it as soon as possible (and are ordering your book or something) – just send me an email.
I added everyone in the contest to the Baker blogroll page in the order you posted (or signed up) and your host date is listed next to your name. Please let me know what recipe you want to choose. If you are in April, it would be good to let me know soon so people can plan (and bake) ahead if necessary. If you are later, you can let me know when it gets closer to your date.
Happy baking and if you have any questions email me at email@example.com.
See you next sunday.
