The cookies are in the bags!



and on plates



From top, left to right:
 Basler Brunsli (chocolate, spices and almonds)
Biberli (gingerbread with marzipan filling)
Anisbroetli (anise seeds and Kirsch)
Laeckerli (see recipe here)
Mailaenderli (butter and lemon)
Schoggichugele (chocolate and hazelnuts)
If you would like any of the recipes, please let me know and I'll email them to you. 

And I managed to make another one of these for a Christmas gift.


We made them with my sewing group. Don't they look great all together?


Now I'm going to finish "streamlining" my home for the packers tomorrow. Please keep your fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly. I will see you on the "other side".

I hope you are enjoying the Advent.

Take care
Vreni

I think you must have done a lot of baking, they all looks so delicious. I love the ones made with the mould. I'm itching to make a hexe pincushion now. I think I'll go cut one out.

Valentina said...

Oh Vreni, this is Cookie-art! I am flabergasted by them... Oh please, share recipes, even if it means I get to live vicariously by reading them through... :)And maybe, who knows, I might just might get a break and bake a few! I love your pincushion/catchall!
You have been busy! They look so fabulous together...
Good luck with the move! I am still addressing envelopes for christmas cards and hoping to finish a few quilts before christmas. Wishing you and your family a beautiful season! So happy to catch up with you, Vreni!
