Christmas Biscuits Rehearsal

20161118_184632

Here where I live we have had a great influence from Austrian and German traditions, back to the old times we had been conquered by their Empires. Old story. Then got our independence,  as many of you already know and can guess. Many people here would like to go back to the Empire, personally I prefer the democracy,  with all its for and against (aka Berlusconi-Trump). However, one of the Austrian tradition I really love is: the Christmas tree and biscuits. Butter biscuits.

End of November I usually bake them, just to have a try. Who knows? Maybe I forgot how to bake them 😎 It has turned out I haven’t 😊🎄

Here you can have a look to the work in progress. Except this time there are no frills on my biscuits. For icing and decorations I’ll wait for December, when my children will help me as cook helpers. 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Enjoy,

Dom
