christmasy

I'm getting in the Christmasy spirit around here and working on a new gingerbread recipe. It's a really different kind of cookie dough (no eggs!?!) but it really cooks up well. I made them on the thicker side then I normally do (and tried really hard not to over bake them - I swear I check on them, turn my back and my oven decides to cook faster? wtf?).

Still trying to decide if I prefer them chewy (as above) or more "gingersnappy". I think I'm leaning towards chewy and it seems as though facebook friends agree with me!

I also got a chance to do something I love - cookie decoration! I practiced my "flooding" technique which worked out well and is so easy once you know how.

I've also got a Christmas surprise up my sleeve but MIL has my blog address and churns it through google translate so no sneak peaks unfortunately!

These look DIVINE Karina! Tell me, what happens to all the try outs you make?! I like making cake but I always give it to Julien to take to work so i don't eat a kilo of cake!!

Thanks Emmy!! To be honest I try to time it when there's something going on, this weekend we're going to a friend's house and I promised I'd bring cookies :-) when I was working I'd bring them to work etc. it's a great way to get rid of tests! People in offices LOVE food around :-)
