Hello dear readers! How was your Christmas?
Mine was wonderful. Peaceful and restful. Thankfully, I was able to get most of my prep work done the weekend before and only had to cook and bake a few last minute dishes and sweets on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is the first year we didn’t put a tree up, but we did decorate outside. I just couldn’t seem to get the energy pulled together to decorate a tree this year.
Anyway, I posted a photo on Instagram and Facebook of some Pizzelle cookies I baked for my dear husband. This is my third attempt at making them, and by far the best. These cookies are slightly thicker, however, I think this is due to the iron I use. Either way…the delicate anise flavor and crispiness of these cookies make them perfect for nibbling on while sipping a cup of espresso first thing in the morning.
Do you have any traditional foods you make or bake during the holidays?
