winter's coming...

winter has nearly arrived... and with the colder weather coming, i prefer staying inside, reading a good book, baking some christmas cookies and decorating my room.
in fact, christmas-pretime is all about food in my opinion. just think about all these wonderful recipes with cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla... i could continue this list forever as there are so many other flavours, but i don't wanna bore you ;)

here are some pictures for you with my christmas impressions:

- star-shaped cinnamon cookies -

recipe: star-shaped cinnamon cookies

50g of finely ground hazelnuts
2 egg whites of middle-sized eggs
a bit salt
125g of sugar
1 package of vanilla sugar
1/2 tbs of lemon juice
1 tbs cinnamon
175g of finely ground almonds

whisk the egg whites with a bit of salt and the lemon juice until it is stiff and then add the sugar slowly and whip until everything is soft and creamy again.
put 3 tbs of the cream away for later decorations.
now, add the vanilla sugar, cinnamon and nuts and put everything into the fridge for about 2 hours.
roll out the cookies dough until it is about 3/4 cm thin and cut out little stars.
then, mix the 3 tbs of left cream with a bit of water and decorate the cookies with it.
put them onto a baking tray and let them bake for about 15-18 min with a temperature of 150°C.
set them onto a plate to cool down and enjoy them :)
