Christmas time usually calls for the smell of freshly baked goodies - especially if that smell contains vanilla. Making and baking vanilla crescents will always bring back childhood memories and my first experiences with baking - me standing in a flour dusted kitchen with my mom, always eager to roll and form the crescents! This year was the first year I ever made vanilla crescents myself due to more time and calm during the otherwise always busy Christmas season. And what shall I say - it was a success. Come see for yourself!
Who would have thought that adding some ginger bread spice can also spice up your usual cookie game? Instead of just making and baking plain old butter cookies - how about trying some vegan and spiced cookies as an alternative? Besides trying out a new recipe here, I also played around with some new cookie cutters and decorators. If you want to try these spiced cookies for yourself and impress your friends and family - try out my new recipe!
For me, nothing beats the smell of freshly baked ginger bread. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger - who would have thought - give this delicious goody just the right flavor for the cold winter and Christmas time. If you want to try an easy and even vegan make over of this all time favorite, come have a look at my recipe!
