A Day in the Kitchen

Today I had a great time in the kitchen, baking cookies for the holidays. I’m going on holiday with my folks soon and thought it would be lovely (and tasty!) to take some homemade baked goods. I decided to make my much-loved choc-chip cookies (recipe by Joy the Baker of course!) and our family’s holiday favourite of cinnamon cookies (If you’d like the recipe, just ask :)). The house gets this lovely aroma when baking the cinnamon cookies and it always makes me feel like Christmas is near!

I also baked some mocha shortbread, a new recipe found here. You just can’t go wrong with a chocolate and coffee combination and I’m definitely adding this one to my collection of guaranteed-to-be-delicious recipes. These shortbread cookies are not too sweet, with a perfect balance between coffee and chocolate flavours. Yum. 😉

 

Do you have any Christmas baking traditions?  Found any good cookie recipes lately? I’d love to hear them!
