Pumpkin cutout cookies

I thought to bake these cookies for a long time, but… And one day I took the cup of pumpkin purée from the freezer and used only a half. So the day of that cookies has come 🙂 I rolled those cookies very thinly because I like thin cookies 🙂 Happy that I halved the recipe because I made a lot of cookies, really a lot. I give you the halved recipe.

Dumplings with scalded dough

It’s super easy but super good! I couldn”t imagine that I will like it so much. Before I tried this dough, dumplings at my house was really a guest. But now I prepare them with meat, curd or other chosen filling. My family likes it. I saw that Skanus gyvenimas prepared very similar dumpling dough but with eggs. I didn”t tried it yet, but sure it should taste even more better. But anyway, the recipe below gives very plastic, not sticking, unshrinkable dough. It”s a little bit like plasteline 🙂 And I just love it.

Challah basket

Today we celebrate Easter in my son’s kindergarten. I was asked to bring few eggs, but I just had to put them somewhere. So I baked this basket 🙂 But while I was baking it, 2 eggs of 5 were eaten by my children, so I have to put candies to look basket pretty 🙂

Cottage cheese cake with apples

For me cottage cheese and apples looked like a strange duet, but something kept pushing me to try this recipe. And the cake is juicy and refreshing but also not very sweet. It’s really good. 🙂

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are really good, because they are very moist, not very sweet and of course – they are with chocolate! My kids just love them and at one time ate almost everything (my hubby helped them a little bit 🙂 ). So we agreed that we will repeat very soon.
