Last week, Bruce and I had so much fun baking loads of Christmas cookies. I haven't actually baked any cookies since I was a child and it was a real treat for me because it brought back so many lovely memories of stuffing my face full baking with my mother and grandmother. These gingerbread stars are actually ones that Bruce made, and they are so moreish, he needs to hide them away from me or I'll just eat all 100 of them in one go.
For the next week, I'm just going to post a few quick posts with some of my favourite Christmas cookies. They're so easy to make, and are perfect as gifts, either dusted with a bit of icing sugar or coated in icing - everyone so far has absolutely loved them. Simple. Sweet. Sexy.
I also paid another little visit to the German Christmas market last week (my 4th visit in the past 2 weeks) just for their irresistible bratwurst, little piggy that I am to finally take a few pictures of it all as it was such a gorgeous day. If you haven't been yet, I urge you to go as it all is very German, and it's just one of those things that completes Christmas for me.
