Hello, hello! Welcome back to my blog after a two years hiatus.
I did miss writing this blog but before I give you a long boring update, I would like to share one of my favorite Christmas cookies  - Elisenlebkuchen. 
I share the Lebkuchen spice mix in this blog post which you need for the cookie recipe. In the following blog post you'll find the cookie recipe.

  • Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod.
