Plätzchen Part II

I'm still baking cookies...

in the oven

after decoration

waiting for going away...

The brown ones are ginger cookies. I used molasses for the first time. The taste is ok, but I think I could improve a little to match my taste. Sugar cookies are just fine. I'm so thankful to my mother-in-law for the recipe!

Oh, it's Christmas Time! I rarely do anything special but baking "Plätzchen" (Christmas cookies in German).


The colorful ones will travel to Japan for my niece and nephews, and the other ones are for everybody else including me! But it's just the beginning, I'll bake more and more and more...!
