Valentine’s Day Cookies with White Chocolate

Valentine’s Day is coming up and all of us who love baking are now baking heart-shaped desserts. This year I made pretty cookies similar to Linzer cookies, just something different. Valentine’s Day Cookies with White Chocolate are made of pink shortbread, filled with white chocolate ganache. They already look so tempting! The shortbread dough is very simple to make and it’s easy to roll it and cut cookies from it. For better taste I added some sour cream in the dough. The shortbread is already delicious without filling. I coloured it with red food colouring liquid, but I suggest you […]

Honey Walnut Sticks

Honey Walnut Sticks are a gingerbread-like dessert which I bake every year in December with my mom. They are made of honey dough with minced walnuts, and are generously covered in chocolate. I just love baking them because their preparation is much quicker than baking cookies, and whole house smells so delicious and Christmassy.  This recipe will also be liked by those who try to limit the use of butter or margarine. The dough doesn’t contain any of it because the walnuts contain enough fat. Moreover, the recipe has less sugar because there’s enough honey – which is healthier than […]

Pumpkin Hand Pies

Pumpkin Hand Pies were so delicious that my husband and I ate all of them in one weekend. Pumpkin Hand Pies are made of cookie dough of […]
