Advent Calendar Day 23 – More Cookies!

Advent Calendar Day 23 – More Cookies!

Last night I did my last bit of Christmas baking, and made some delicious ginger cookies. They’ve been my “thing” to bring to X-mas at my parents’ place for the last number of years.

Don’t they look tasty? Not very neat, but tasty. You can check out the recipe over here if you want!

Today I’m finishing the last cleaning and wrapping, and then tonight it’s off to my parents’ place to decorate the tree! I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by. Just one more entry and then this calendar is over!

Advent Calendar Day 17 – Pepparkakor! Bake your own!

Advent Calendar Day 17 – Pepparkakor! Bake your own!

As you may or may not know, pepparkakor (gingerbread cookies), are a Swedish Christmas classic. I was a bit late this year, and only baked last week. But at least I have enough now to last until Christmas, and have some left for the mini-Christmas I have planned with friends on Boxing Day.

There’s just something about home-baked pepparkakor. The store bought ones are never as good. If you’re interested in trying to make some yourself, I posted the recipe the mom and I use on Hubpages! It makes quite a lot of cookies from one batch, in fact mom usually makes one batch and then splits the dough with me.
