Christmas Bakes

Christmasy decos were out since September,
magazines stuffed full of receipes for Christmas
dinner, lunch, breakfast; not forgetting 'after dinner'
morning cocktails to sober up.
Everyone driven into a frenzy of shopping
and baking when December came..
I did not bake much this year as I was away for much of December.  Here are my traditional bakes, simple and very much liked by family.   The receipes are from a book printed in the early 1900.

Linzertorte - raspbery jam (above)

Black currant jam.

  Vanilla crescent- before baking

Vanilla crescent - after baking.

was not watching :-(  

Filled with black currant and apricot jam.


  1. Beautiful bakes, friend. I look forward to the day where we can share some of your cookies over a cup of tea!

  2. Peng, I'm sure we will do that soon.
