Gingerbread cookies

This gingerbread cookies I baked two times and the second time I made them thinner – these were much more better 😉 It’s sad that ducks, elephants, mice and butterflies didn’t survived till photo session.. By the way, I don’t know why but butterflies were most popular 🙂 Maybe because they were very colourful… This is the last entry about Christmas baking. So what now? Will be waiting for the spring? 🙂

Challah

I baked this challah a lot of times, because I just love it. The last time I baked it I prepared the dough and to rise the first time I put it in a fridge for the night. The next morning I took it out, formed challah and let rise it the second time, then baked it. So that morning we had delicious breakfast with still warm challah.

Brinzos sūrio apkepas

Brinza cheese bake

When I saw brinza in a store, I bought it without thinking. But it rested in a fridge for a while. Then I searched my recipe archive and found one recipe with this cheese. So I prepared this dish the same day. My hubby liked it, even a lot 🙂 Children ate a lot too, so I think they liked it too. The taste reminded us stewed curd lasybones, which we like the same as marmots 🙂 The next day I sliced left overs and fried with a little bit butter in a pan. Kids liked it too. So I think this recipe has full right to be in my blog 🙂

Baziniai biskočiai

Basic Biscotti

I have not one biscotti recipe, but for the first time I decided to bake the simplest kind – basic. I was afraid that simple ones look like rusk, so I decorated them with dark and white chocolate. At the office, we laugh that I brought them rusks but anyway biscotti disappeared quickly. And for afternoon tea/coffee there were only a few biscotti left.

Greitos baronkytės

Quick small bagels

These bagels are really tasty and what’s more important – very quickly prepared. They didn’t live long – next day they were all gone, because they’re very addictive 🙂

Vafliai-picos

Pizza waffles

When today children heard that will be these waffles for lunch, impatiently waited until they baked and of course waffles disappeared quickly. Daughter even after a dance session ate all leftovers. She literally licked the plate clean (I had to look carefully into the plate to understand that it was not washed out :)). But don’t think that some wild people live down here in our house, I have to mention that she licked the sauce with waffle, not with the tongue 🙂
