Christmas if over, New Year and it’s new goals are set. So we have just to wait for another great festival – St.Valentine day. But Christmas stil is something special – because we spend so much time thinking about our family and friend. And I think that to give is more important in that day then to get.
This year I got a small present from Ineta from Gamyklėlė blog. Thank you very much – it was really sweet 🙂
And now a little bit about cookies. I chose them because in the recipe it was written that they don’t spread. Yes, it’s correct. But I expected more crunchy, and they were soft. But they hole the form very well and are really delicious. I gave them as a present in my job. They disappeared in minutes 🙂 And I was asked for the recipes. So here it goes:
Chocolate butter cookies

Bread sticks with paprika and sesame
Very good snack. Kids came from the kinder-garden and ate only these sticks till none was left. I had to hide some for photo session. I baked them already two times. The first time I rolled sticks in sesame seeds, but the next day I had joy cleaning all house with vacuum-cleaner from the seeds 🙂 The next time I put sesame seeds inside the dough and it was more practical and the taste didn’t differ very much.
Coffee-cake with cherries
Refreshing coffee-cake with light cherry sourness. At the beginning I was afraid that the recipe uses too much cherries, but when we tasted this coffee-cake we understood that the balance of sweetness and sourness is just perfect.
Buns with cottage cheese
I bake these buns everytime I have some cottage cheese left and want something sweet but at the same time simple. And the next day I just love to warm them a few seconds in the microwave – then they smell like newly baked. Really good!
Fluffy cottage cheese pancakes
Very delicious pancakes. Fluffy, very light. Just melts in your mouth. When I remember their taste I’m suffused with warmth and good memories of the weekend.
These healthy muffins are extremely moist and delicious.
