Sunday Lavender Cookies

Simple recipe and so much fun 🙂 I’m in love with lavender cookies. I prefer when they have a noticible notes of lemon so the best recipe I found so far is from Moje Wypieki blog. In the original recipe, there was lemon juice, but I had to use some lemon scent (and it was still very tasty: D)….

ORANGE BROWNIE COOKIES

Today’s recipe is for Cookies for special occasions. It is crazy how good are those cookies, especially considering that they don’t look much. Usually I’m like the biscuits police and prefer the classic, UFO shaped cookies over any other but this time I decided to change my ways. Instead of sticking to well known patterns, I…

BUCKWHEAT BISCUITS

I declare April a month of biscuits! Or should I say next four weeks will be filled with recipes for great, sweet and sour biscuits, scones and shortbreads. Because who doesn’t love a good cookie, right?  First goes a recipe that is new in my repertoire but already made a name for it. Buckwheat…

OATMEAL AND CHOCOLATE EASTER COOKIES

It was supposed to be a recipe for a vegan cake I have recently tried but the ingredients got stuck in delivery. Bummer… Instead I decided to do another nice and healthy but perfectly delicious recipe. Oatmeal cookies might be a bold choice for Easter but I think it is good to have on your…

MILLIONAIRE’S SHORTBREADS MINI MAZUREK CAKES

It just struck me – there’s just one month until Easter. Since there are only four weeks left, it’s about time for Easter recipes. Millionaire’s shortbread is not exactly an Easter classic in Poland, but few years ago I tried out this recipe for the first time as part of a mazurka cake experiment and…

LEMON SPONGE CAKES

If you had any doubts, the sunny color of the sponge cakes was especially designed to recall spring  I came up with the idea that if I bake those sunny, fluffy sponge cakes they will not only improve my mood, but also the weather. I do not know how it went for the rest…

CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE CAKE POPS

I have to be honest and come clean about something. Until this day, I have never tried to prepare cake pops. Never! But I saw this beautiful, rich, and as it came out, amazingly tasty Fairtrade Rich Chocolate Truffle Sauce in Mark’s and Spencer’s and I thought that I’ll put my faith in Christmas miracles…

CHRISTMAS TREE SHORTBREADS

That will probably surprise you (considering how often I bake), but I rarely prepare Christmas tree cookies. That’s probably because there are no small children around. They are the best companions, when it comes to decorating cookies. I usually borrow my god daughters for this task  And boy, isn’t that fun?! Flour is everywhere!…

DOMINO

  Gingerbreads and honey-cakes have a long and rich tradition in Poland. There are countless recipes from the most classic ones like when you have to prepare the dough at least six weeks before baking it, to some rapid, mix-everything-in-one-bowl-and-bake kind of cakes. However they all have one thing in common – they literally smell…

WHITE CHOCOLATE AND CRANBERRY COOKIES

I think it’s just about time to start gathering some recipes for Christmas’ sweet goodies. Let’s face it, holidays are going to be here in no time and that’s why for the next couple of Saturdays, until Christmas, I’ll be focusing on deserts that for me are the essence of sweet holiday spirit. It is…
