In Denmark baking is a key element to the holidays. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t associate baking with Christmas. Now we do bake all year around, but it’s when december hits that we bake the more heavy spiced stuff like gingerbread. So here I am with a recipe for a ginger-honey bread house also called “Honningkagehus” in Danish.

O.P.I. Nail Envy (the blue one) base coat
Essie’s “Dive Bar”
Fräulein nailart stripers in silver and holographic glitter
Sally Hansen “Insta-Dri” top coat

This recipe is a traditional Danish Christmas cookie. It smells divine and taste like heaven. I’ll admit they aren’t figure friendly, but you won’t get the same taste if using fat free stuff. This recipe will make around 35 cookies :D

 

Ingredients

75 g of Almond flour
250 g of All purpose flour
1 Egg (L/XL)
180 g of Sugar
200 g of Butter (Salted and soft – room temperature)
1-1½ tsp of Vanilla powder*

 

How to

Step 1: Mix the vanilla powder, sukker and buttet together until it’s creamy.

Step 2: Add the egg and mix well.

Step 3: Add the two kinds of flour and mix until smooth.

Step 4: Put the mixture in a fabric piping bag with a star tip and pipe the mixture into circles (5 cm diameter)

Step 5: Bake at 200 degrees celcius until they are lightly golden brown (10-14 minutes)

 

*The vanilla powder can be replaced with the seeds from a large vanilla pod.

I’m one of those people who love Christmas, yet I refuse to listen to Christmas music and decorate before we hit December 1st. For me Christmas is December and not October and November. I’m kinda getting tired of mall/shopping centers and other stores already decorating for Christmas in October, I mean come on – that’s 2 months before!
Anyways.. The point of this post is not to complain it’s to share my Top 10 Christmas songs, hope you enjoy :D

1. Last Christmas (technically not a x-mas song, but whatever)
2. Jingle Bells
3. White Christmas
4. Happy Christmas (War is Over)
5. Jingle Bell Rock
6. All I Want for Christmas Is You
7. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
8. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
9. Silent Night
10. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
