You are invited to
It’s that time of year when we dig out our recipe boxes, make a list of needed ingredients, and start baking up batches of Christmas Cookies – those ones the family looks forward to all year.
Since we can’t get together as a group, we thought that a ‘virtual’ exchange would be fun. We hope that you all will share your favourite recipes below.
What fun to try a member’s recipe from France, Germany, England, South Africa, Croatia, Canada, the USA, or any of the other multitude of countries represented in KAS.
Anything goes, as long as you think it is delicious. It can be calorie laden, gluten free, easy or challenging to make, squares (the edible kind – not knitted!), and not even a cookie! Christmas puddings and cakes, fudge and other Christmas sweets are also welcome.
If you have a photo of your baking, please post it with your recipe, if not – no worries.
If your recipe has been handed down, we can consider it an original (no need for a source), if you found it on the back of a bag like Chipits, please mention where it came from.
Because we represent so many countries, and some of us are on metric and others are not, here is a Conversion Chart:
Thanks Anne, this recipie had my son drooling...... but like Wendy, I would respond in the same way to almonds and almond essence! When we visit Judes KAS fundraiser in Purton, one of the ladies there makes scrumtious Bakewell tarts, which have almonds and almond essence in abundence...... Jude kindly treats Andrew to a large one of these as a thank you for his support..... if he had a tail it would wag!
To all you bakers - just in case you have discovered a new cookie recipe you would like to share, we will keep this discussion open until the end of January.
Wendy and Chris - do not despair! If you have an aversion to almond flavouring, Dutch Butter Cake can be made with other flavouring. I poked around on the Internet and discovered that some people flavour it with candied ginger, and some with lemon zest, and there are probably other options as well. I think I will try both the lemon and the ginger, since I love them both (but not as much as almond)
Thank you Anne......I love both lemon and ginger :)))
