The “12 Days of Christmas Cookies” continue – today with sweet little Almond Bear Paws. Ok… they are actually not that small, but definitely smaller than the original paws on an original bear. Not that big, but definitely easier and safer to eat ;P
If someone were to ask me “Which Christmas cookies are you having a hard time saying no to?” – well the answer would be clear: these Classic Florentines here! Since I made them for the first time, I’ve been addicted to them hardcore. Super delicious, sweet, chocolaty, fruity…. just the perfect combination!
Black ‘n’ White Christmas Cookies are pretty common here in Germany I’d say. A classic Christmas cookie so to speak. They look great and people are normally impressed when you present them along with other homemade cookies at a Christmas gathering. Nevertheless, these cookies were on my baking Christmas baking list year after year but I never made them because I always thought they were too much work and too complicated to prepare. Well… after making them once (finally), I realized I was completely wrong ;P
Today’s Christmas cookies for my “12 Days of Christmas Cookies” are clearly influenced by the Brits! Delicious Ginger Christmas Cookies – very simple and easy to prepare and perfect for some dipping action… tea, hot apple cider, or whatever. I am sure the Queen would approve and do the same if I send her a small box with these cookies… don’t you think? ;)
The “12 Days of Christmas Cookies” continues – who would have thought of that seeing these Classic Christmas Hazelnut Macaroons, right? ;) One of my favorite Christmas cookie bakes because I looooove me some hazelnuts. They should be on every baking list for Christmas… right next to Vanilla Crescents and Cinnamon Stars. Just saying ;)
I was just about to write “Happy Halloween”, but that’s been over for a while now… Happy Advent then! ;) This blog will serve you a lot of Christmas cookies until Christmas – to prevent you from getting a sugar shock you don’t have to eat today’s cookies. You can use this Gingerbread Cookie Wreath for Christmas decorations instead! How about that? Baking your decorations instead of buying it? ;)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
