Christmas baking – round 3

On Sunday, a friend invited us over to his place to bake biscuits. Obviously I jumped at the chance – all the fun of baking without getting flour all over my own kitchen again? What’s not to like! There were 9 of us in all, but we managed to do a pretty good job of not getting in each other’s way.

First we baked biscuits

These chocolate-coated biscuits are gluten free for the sake of one of the group. Can you tell I had fun decorating the teddy bear?

  1. LOVE Vanille Kipferl!! Probably the only sort of cookie which I cannot find in my house, ha ha. (Thank God — otherwise my scales would crash down soon) We had some fun wrapping gifts last night, Josie always in the middle of it all, and lots of Gluehwein too.
