Christmas Baking Inspiration

Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas! Life has been pretty hectic the last few weeks, so I have to say I am very much looking forward to a couple of days of chilled family time at home over the holidays. I am not going away for long but spending time with family and eatings lots of delicious food is going to be wonderful. I’ll probably be spending most of my time in the kitchen with my dad cooking up a storm and baking lots of festive treats – and I love it.

In my family we don’t really do presents at Christmas (because we celebrate St Nicholas on the 5th of December) so instead I always bake something, to be able to give them delicious edible presents. I always do my Christmas baking research on Pinterest and I found some great recipes..but I am not going to share those on blog just yet. So instead I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ve made in the last few years to give you  all some Christmas baking inspiration!

Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Did you all have a wonderful time over Christmas these last few days? I ate so much food, I am still recovering really ;) One of the treats I indulged in were these Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Truffles that I’d made for my family on Christmas Eve. They are perfect for Christmas time, or well, any time of the year really. You can make them with or without the peppermint and will be delicious either way. But it is a great recipe if you still have some leftover Christmas candy canes hanging in your tree!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s Christmas Eve!! I am so happy to be home in The Hague with my family to spend my Christmas holidays here. I arrived last night and will be at home until the 30th, including a couple of little excursions out and about around the country. Most of the time at home I will be cooking, eating, drinking, relaxing, reading by the Christmas tree, going for walks, playing with my adorable nephew and then probably more cooking and eating! I do really love Christmas, it’s such a wonderful time of the year with all the decorations, lights, cosiness, food and the general warmth of the season. It’s not really a Hump Day today because it’s a HOLIDAY (woop woop) but still wanted to spread a bit of mid-week joy to keep up the tradition…

White Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio Cookies

Only 7 sleeps until Christmas! Are you ready for it? One important thing to note is that these white chocolate cranberry pistachio cookies really are a must-add to your Christmas baking list this year. With splashes of red, white and green, it makes them the perfect cookies for the Christmas festive season but more importantly, they are just super delicious.

These, easy to make, white chocolate cranberry pistachio cookies are buttery, scrumptiously chewy and the mix of the white chocolate and sweet cranberries with the slightly salty pistachios nuts works so well. What are you waiting for, quickly check what you have in your pantry and bake these cookies now! I made them this weekend for my annual Girls Christmas Feast and they seriously all disappeared in seconds.
