Baking Day – Traditional Czech Christmas Cookies – Vanilcove RohlickyPosted: December 21, 2011 | |
It is definitely a busy time of year!
The past Monday, the due date for the Festive Challenge came and went, and with it came fewer submissions than for the Inaugural Challenge. I’m not sure why that is, but I’m guessing it is because people are very busy – I know I am! This week has seen two days when I didn’t do my daily post, and even today, I’m finding myself forcing posting something even though my schedule has been packed.
The main part of today was spent baking tradition Czech Christmas cookies – Vanilcove Rohlicky! A couple of weeks ago I asked my mom for her recipe (cause her’s are the best of course) and she kindly forwarded it to me. There was a bit of a hitch, since part of the secret is not just the recipe, but the shape of the cookie itself. After trying a couple of things around the house that didn’t work, I went out in search for something that could – and find it I did!
So below you can see a photo of the cookies on the baking sheet ready to cook. At this point I’ve already finished baking and they turned out really well – a real taste of home! It’s a great nostalgic feeling when one is on the other side of the world traveling.
I miss everyone back home!
