It’s the season of Christmas sweets

Apart from Christmas tree, Christmas gifts and Christmas spirit in general, we

LOVE Christmas sweets. And if they’re home-made then we love them even more!

What’s nicer than a captivating smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies coming out

of the kitchen? I could spend hours in my kitchen baking sweets for Christmas and

decorating our dining table with all those jars and plates filled with delicious sweets.

I can’t imagine our Christmas holiday without almond and cinnamon stars, they’re

my favorite. They’re so tasty, very decorative if stored in glass jars and they stay fresh

for long time (if they last!).


Traditional sweets for Christmas


Every year I make few kinds of traditional Christmas sweets,

like Buche de Noel – traditional dessert served on Christmas Eve mostly in France and

francophone countries;  Gingerbread men – a biscuit made of gingerbread in a shape

of a man, traditionally at our home decorated by kids; Greek almond biscuits – usually

baked by my Greek grandma and Linzer torte – my mum’s favorite Austrian torte with

hazelnuts and raspberry jam.

What about you? Do you have your favorite Christmas sweet recipe?
