My Favourite Christmas Baking Recipe.

Welcome to Blogmas day 7. Today I want to share with you my favourite Christmas recipe. At Christmas time I really love to bake cookies rather than just cupcakes.

This year I have been making festive vanilla cookies!

Here’s the recipe that I have used to make these:

  • 250g all purpose flour
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 125g superfine sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Bake at 200c (Gas 6) for 12-16 minutes.

I feel that this recipe is fantastic for all year round cookies.

I finished the cookies off by using some easy roll green icing. I used the same cookie cutters as I used to make the cookies to cut the tree shapes out of the icing.

Lastly, I used some icing pens to decorate the rest of the trees. I let them set then they were ready to enjoy!

What is your favourite Christmas baking recipe?

Christmas Mood Book.

Welcome to Blogmas day 5.

Today I want to share with you a book that I’ve been putting together. Originally I wanted to do a mood board, but I decided against it as I wouldn’t be able to carry it around with me.

I found that going onto Pinterest gave me so much inspiration for decoration ideas and Christmas themed recipes for hot chocolates and baking ideas. So I chose the ones that I loved, printed them off and started assembling them into this scrapbook that I bought off Amazon.

This book has given me so much inspiration for this years Christmas!

Have you put together a Christmas mood board or book?
