Hey, peeps! How is the "sweetest" month of the year going so far? Well the holiday craze is in full swing and today's post its all about Christmas spirit and delicious cookies I baked over the weekend with my dear friend Michaela! So much fun! Just like back in the days when we were kids helping our mummy with baking. Being far away from my family, moments like this bring out memories and warm feelings! And before I get all sentimental, let me give you this simple recipe for super delicious cookies, which taste just like granny's. ;)

- 300 g butter
- 160 g sugar
- Vanilla sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 400 g flour
- 150 g fine almonds
- jam
- Icing sugar, for dusting

1. Heat the owen on 220 °C.
2. Beat butter and sugar with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat. Add flour and almonds; mix.
3. Transfer dough to a floured surface, form into a disk, roll until 1⁄4" thick. Cut out cookies with different cookie cutters and transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Chill for 30 minutes.
4. Bake cookies until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes; cool.
5. Place 1 tsp. jam in center of each whole cookie and top each with the second cookie. In the end sprinkle icing sugar over and enjoy delicious cookies!

To avoid the sugar overdose, grab some of the cookies and create beautiful Christmas gifts and make your dearest happy, too! Delicious and made with love gifts are always the best ones! You can put cookies in the gift boxes, festive favor bags, or glass jars, and for the finishing touches add some holiday gift tags with nice messages, or the recipe of the cookies!

With love,
