Wishing all my Family, Friends & readers of my Blog Merry Xmas and a happy new year 2013!
Thank you all for visiting my small little space, this year has been good for me. I started blogging one and a half years back and I am simply enjoying every minute spent on this space. I believe in learning and sharing and this space is an outlet for me to share my tried and tested recipes and some culinary experiments from my kitchen. I feel blessed to come across so many like-minded bloggers. I personally feel way to go and lots to learn still from this ocean of food blogging.
Xmas has been always special, my kids every year get Xmas gifts from Secret Santa :). This year is no different and they will again wait for some special gifts for them. I love the colorful Xmas tree, cookies and some special cakes during this time.
My daughter had to take some gift in school because all the kids play the Secret Santa game just before Xmas. Secret Santa is an age-old tradition wherein everyone buys a gift, picks a slip from the stocking and gives the gift to the recipient named there. The concept is to give the gift without knowing who will benefit from your gift. After this they have a school Xmas party.
For this years Xmas party I baked her Choco chip cookies for her friends and teachers. In fact I made so many chewy Choco chip cookies, tutti frutti cake, banana walnut loaf along with these beautiful and delicious Stained Glass Cookies for both my kids. Some they took to school for the Xmas party and rest they enjoyed at home.
It’s so much fun to bake these stained glass cookies, I love the colored Poppins/candies in this recipe and the result is wow. My kids loved these cookies. The first time I baked these few months back, I use the parchment paper and my cookies got stuck from the candy portion so this time I used the silicon sheet to bake these and my cookies came perfect without getting stuck from the bottom.
Here is the recipe for these lovely stained glass cookies, the cookies are glass like from the centre and soft from the outer edges. I feel these cookies are too good to bake for some occasions as these make the kids happy too with the colorful look and if you hang them as decorations then it is like an icing on the cake!
Recipe adapted from simplyrecipes.com and these cookies turned out lovely, thank you Elise, my kids loved these cookies!
Wishing all my family, friends and readers of my blog Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year 2013! God Bless All.
See you all with some exciting new recipes in 2013, till then stay tuned & stay blessed!!!
