I’m still waiting for the healthy new year’s resolutions to kick in, but secretly I’m procrastinating until after Valentine’s Day to decide on a fitness membership or new gym class. You can’t rush these kind of life decisions! Meanwhile I’m thinking of new ways to recycle all of my leftover Christmas cookies and created delicious Gingerbread Petits Fours. Continue Reading…
If you are already bored of classic gingerbread cookies by now, try these soft and chewy gingerbread-spiced cookies with a delicious caramel filling. Trust me they are highly addictive! :)
This is another recipe for all you marzipan lovers out there! :D
This is not a classic shortbread recipe but the cookies taste buttery, crumbly just like shortbread with a hint of marzipan. These cookies will melt in your mouth. The marzipan and drizzle of milk chocolate adds a festive flair to these lovely holiday treats.
I made chocolate crinkle cookies for the first time this year and I’m positive that they will be included in my permanent Christmas cookie repertoire from now on! I do not only love how these cookies taste (the chewy, chocolaty flavor) but I also love how they look! Chocolate crinkle cookies make me think of chocolate cookies that were forgotten outside when it snowed. All you chocolate lovers out there should definitely try them! They look as cute as they are addictive.
I didn’t really know what to call today’s delicious treats. Petits fours sounds very fancy and impressive don’t you think? ;)
These thumbprint cookies are buttery soft and crumbly. Plus they have the perfect ratio of cookie dough and jam. The dough itself is not very sweet which complements well the tangy yet sweet taste of the jam. And the dark rum flavor adds a little something.
Thumbprint cookies are very easy to make and even if your ‘thumbprint’ is not perfect, once they are baked and filled you won’t even notice it. If however you are like me, eat the ones that you find have imperfections ;) That is my personal rule!
