Everywhere I have looked this past week I have only seen cookies. I think I missed this whole cookie event in my years gone by. I can be pretty blind to things that lie right in front of me sometimes. I’m known to be rebellious sometimes (uh all the time!) and I was trying my hardest to not get into the whole cookie mood. Why the heck not? asked a little voice inside my head. I don’t really know, I replied back. Maybe because I’m just a big old kid in the guise of an adult.
So when my kid came to me and asked me to make cookies for her Christmas dinner, it seemed the perfect excuse to succumb to the whole cookie baking thing!
I love how her school organises these events and makes the holidays so special. I never had that growing up. The search for her outfit, ah it is so much fun… and I wish I was this age again. 🙂
My grocery store, takes out a magazine every few weeks and there stood the most beautiful cookies. Simple and spiced. I just added coriander powder to them as well. The result is the most lovely soft spiced cookies. Perfect for this weather and for this festive season.
And here I was thinking I could easily glaze (in intricate patterns) 50 cookies! Ha! I was in for a rude surprise. The glazing was beyond difficult and I fumbled my way through some 20 and gave up! It always looked so easy in the videos. I guess not!
Glazed or not, cookies don’t get more flavourful and easier than this.
