Leprechauns are the general mascot of St. Patrick’s Day, which makes sense, since they’re from Irish folklore. But as far as tiny, magical elves go in general, should leprechauns be the most famous?

It’s a no-brainer: dough recipe book release + holiday season = bake-off celebration! Russell van Kraayenburg’s Making Dough is all about demystifying baking. It claims that you can master all different kinds of pastry doughs if you know the ratios between five ingredients—flour, butter, water, sugar, and eggs.
Ten intrepid food bloggers have agreed to put Russell’s claim to the test, by taking up the mantle of the #MakingDough Challenge. We’ve given five bloggers the book’s biscuit dough recipe, and the pie dough recipe to five more. Their challenge: to take that dough recipe and make a pie/biscuits of their own.
Follow along for some holiday baking inspiration.
