I threw a Christmas cookie baking party at my apartment. Baking in Korea is a challenge because ovens aren’t common in the officetel type apartments that most of the English teachers live in. I have a toaster oven and even that is a luxury.
It’s also really difficult to get baking supplies. I had to go to the baking store in Nampo-dong (about 45 minutes each way by subway) just to find vanilla extract. It was all worth it though because the day was a lot of fun and the cookies were tasty.
