Finally, it’s this time of the year again – Christmas time! The most jolly time of the year, so they say… and I kinda agree, ’cause I love Christmas! ❤

I really enjoy it when it smells like cinnamon and vanilla everywhere in the house and I can drink hot cocoa and eat cookies without feeling childish. So as soon as I can see the first snowflakes silently fall outside my window, I immediately start my little christmas bakery. And that’s when it’s this time of the year again for me!

Anja from Food Freshion started a nice blog event this christmas called “So schmeckt der Advent” (~”The Taste of Christmas”). Verena from We Are Stardust, the girls from Vienna Fashion Waltz and I were chosen to participate and each of us four will share one of our favorite christmas recipes with you on a Sunday before Chistmas to sweeten up the time till Santa arrives…

Adventblogevent_Rechteck_großI will start the event off today:

And because there is no Christmas without gingerbread, that’s what my post will be all about.

The recipe is from a friend’s mother (thank you for sharing it with me <3, so I can share it with the world) and I have never used another recipe ever again. It is oh so easy (just throw everything into the mixing bowl of your stand mixer, let it rest and you are ready to go) and it also tastes amazing, so why change a winning team. 🙂

Or would you perfer some Vanille Crescents or Vanille Coconut Rum Truffles or Coconut Macarons or Buttered Bread Cookies or Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies instead?

Let’s start baking!
