7. Dutch Star Cookies on Cup’s Rim


People think of wind mills and tulips when they think of Holland, but I think of groovy design. This Star cookie that sits on the rim of your coffee cup being a case in point. Isn’t it fabulous? Unique, easy, practical, crisp, golden brown, delicious ( made with REAL butter) and not too big either. Super simple recipe of 100g sugar, 200g butter and 300g flour, spices or flavouring to taste. 30 min, 140 C.

These cookies look so real and homemade.  Sometimes it’s better when things don’t look too perfect, but instead, look perfectly delicious and made with love. This line up of true and tried homemade cookies recipes remind me of home growing up as a kid. I sure did not measure my sprinkles, nor mind a splash of food coloring. ‘The more the merrier’ was probably my motto most days, particularly when it came to the sweeter bits in life. 

These cookies come complete with recipe and a personal Christmas story.

Christmas Cookies Recipe Exchange

Over the 7, nearly 8 years I have been blogging, I have accumulated a few Christmas cookie recipes. I will add them to the linkup below. And I hope you will add yours as well.  Come on, let’s have a link fest.

If you have made something else other than creating Christmas cookie recipes, than you can link these up in the linky party below the Christmas cookie recipe exchange link-up. Show off your other creative works of art!  

ps. Don’t forget to link back to the party or this blog’s home page from your blog post or homepage.   Linking back is the only party rule, albeit that it is obviously a great idea to check out everybody else’s wonderful Christmas cookies recipes!
