End of year holiday season is fast approaching, and I thought of sharing my baking earlier this year.
Last year, I re-posted my Gingerbread house, complete with cut-out plan/ dimensions. As well as Christmas mince pies.

Three years ago I baked this gorgeous, delicious melt in mouth, Rosemary Seasalt sables.
In year 2012, I baked Spritzen Christmas Wreath, a recipe from a reader residing in Europe.

Finally my cute little Reindeer Macarons :D.

Which would you prefer?

As you may have noticed from the video, that this Cranberries and walnut cookie dough are pretty much on the "softer" side.

My first baked (for Eid), I did the spoon thingy the dough to try to make it like a ball.

  2. Yummy and easy! I love these. I actually just made cranberry ginger cookies over the weekend that were awesome. I'm actually not a huge fan of walnuts, do you think pecans would work just as well?

    1. Oh cranberry and ginger sounds awesome too :)

      Definitely you can use pecans, my sister’s original recipe uses cashews but a packet of cashews are so expensive hence walnuts :D
