Xmas baking

Posted by Claudia Moser on 1:22 PM in , ,
Despite having a heavy cold I decided that I need to bake, to fill the house with the wonderful aroma of cookies :)

So here I went, ending up with many more than I thought, but I am sure that I will make some people happy!

Coconut cookies
Honey cinnamos stars
Cranberries cookies
Espresso stars

Orange Xmas trees
Almonds cookies
Marzipan balls
Chocolate cookies - not so pretty but delicious
Cookies which I will fill with jam :)

Any takers?



Oh yes, oh yes! Nothing better than home baked cookies, and so many wonderful kinds to try :-)

@Sarah - well yes, it improves the mood but gather pounds on the hips :)))

Mmmmm..... They all look so yummy. Will you share your cranberry cookie recipe with me? I have some cranberries that I want to use up. I've been looking for a good recipe. I hadn't thought about cookies. They look sooooo good! Yum!

Wow! You must have been cooking all day! Is there a better smell than that of baking?!

Goodness Gracious, Claudia! You've been at it all day, by the look of it. So much variety. I am very impressed, but at the same time, you've shown me up hugely. I haven't baked a thing this year and am not sure I'll get round to doing so, either. Surprisingly, I used to love baking. It was always such an easy, relaxing past time. Now, it just seems like too much hard work. I'd love to tuck into a selection of your delicious cookies! Nothing beats home baking!

I am sorry to hear you're still feeling so poorly :( Thank you for your lovely compliment on my blog a short while ago! That was such a sweet thing to say & I really am delighted to know you find peace when you stroll through those wonderful gardens :)

Oh yum! I haven't even started any holiday baking. Can I borrow some of yours. It all looks so delicious that I can almost smell them!

@Darlene - will look for the recipe and share it :)
@Emma - no, but the whole house if full of it :)
@Desiree - I believe that there are moments when the pleasures of creating something move to a different direction, you have your amazing photos. And I was 100% honest, they truly relax me!
@Karen - thank you for the compliment, but I still have to work on the details, but they improve year by year!
@Laura - you are welcome at any time :)

Goodness me Claudia. You hAVE been so busy with all that cooking. It all looks scrummy I must say! I can't believe that you have another cold. :( Perhaps it's all that travelling. Hope it eases soon. Hugs.

@Diane - it is the 4 weeks old cold, not so funny anymore :( but hey the baking helped my mood :)

Wow, Claudia. You got so much done! They look delicious. Hope your cold is gone soon.

@Belle - I was unstopable :)) cold still here I'm afraid but hey such is life!

I just gained 10 pounds looking at these! Delish I am sure.

I just gained 10 pounds looking at these! Delish I am sure.

@Jo - they are, but will be shared :)

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
