Hi ❣It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
Today I’m going to #bake the last #Christmas- #cakes for this time, for this year 😊.
I have so fare shared with you some of my #Norwegian #recipes for #homemade Christmas cakes and #cookies. It has mainly been the Christmas- cakes and cookies I have been baking after we did moved to #Spain 😊. Four #different kinds of Christmas cakes,- but I did bake a couple of others too when we did live in Norway 😊.
It’s just not necessary to bake a lots of different types of cakes here in Spain because the Christmas- #celebration are mainly for us the Christmas- evening ,- and not like it was when we did live in Norway 🎄. Of course it’s good to have some #tasty homemade Christmas cakes and cookies as #snacks during the days between Christmas and the New Year evening,- and we have that too 😊. I have made more then enough, – also so I can share and split in 3 boxes. One box to each of my children 🧡.
The different from here in Spain and Norway in the time between Christmas and New Year evening was that we had different #family- parties during the days. We visit the ones we didn’t celebrate the Christmas- evening together with, or they was #invited to our home 😊.
It was a lots of #food,- $dinners and #desserts, cakes and cookies from the Christmas- evening to the 1. January is 😊. Then it also was great to have a bit various kinds of cakes and cookies to serve to the guests,- as well as different dinners 😊.
In Spain it’s more and less the Christmas- evening we are together,- and it’s natural enough because our family are in Norway,- and the friends we have here in Spain #celebrate more and less the same way as us,- the Christmas- evening,- and then it’s a bit “normal” days again. The 25. December is a #Holyday in Spain like it is in Norway. Most have this day off from work 😊.
Today I’m going to make something we calls “#Sirupsnipper”/ “Syrup sipping”. Hmmm…..that’s sound a bit strange in English,- but it was the best translation I did find 😊.
The recipe for Norwegian homemade
1 dl syrup
1 dl cream
100 g melted butter
200 g sugar
500 g wheat flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
Mix syrup, cream and butter together. Mix the dry things together, then mix all the ingredients together into a smooth dough to roll out.
Roll the dough as flat as possible. Use shapes to make different kinds of cakes in different forms, sizes and shapes. Friy at 200 degrees, in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes.
And then you have some tasty and soft homemade Norwegian Christmas- cookies 😊. They are not very difficult to make either 😊.
Maybe I’m going to try some other homemade Christmas cakes and cookies next year? 😊 Like I did mention yesterday, – #traditions and #cultures are #changing when we and our life are changing too 😊. So there are a possibility for changing some of the Christmas- cakes and cookies traditions too 😊.
I hope you will #enjoy this Christmas Cookies like we do 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for dropping by my #blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊
