Not sure how it is in your part of the world, but in here the weather doesn’t behave at all- it’s been raining all the time and it really is quite hard to believe that Christmas is just a few days away. However, there’s a great thing to do to feel the proper festive atmosphere- light up the tree, put on your favourite carols, prepare some mulled wine and… start baking seasonal goodies with your friend!
When Daga called me up asking if I fancy baking some ginger biscuits together, I absolutely loved the idea. What I didn’t expect, however, was setting up a real home manufacture! We ended up baking not only the biscuits but also mince pies (my longing-for-England idea), vanille kipferl (that one came from Daga who grew up in Austria) and two other kinds of crunchy biscuits I don’t even remember the names of! What a crazy night, it was sooo much fun and so many festive things in one place that it could easily go as a Christmas rehearsal (because why not? ).
And as you may expect, everything had to be documented 🙂
What about you, do you fancy baking Christmas goodies at home? Are you ready for Father Christmas to come? 🙂
