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...!

Chocolate-Strawberry Roll Cake

Chocolate-Strawberry Roll Cake

Suddenly I wanted to eat something which demands me to use my delicate sense.

And then, I had a little hard time to find some recipe which is easy but tasty enough because the word "delicate" is actually far beyond me. I mean, I can't make anything which requires  special skill, or which is complicated to make.

Finally, I found a simple recipe to make this roll cake, which has only a few easy steps to make and is delicious as well! I'm totally satisfied with the result even though it has some holes in the cream. It's ok, then it was my very first trial!
