Dressed up cookies!

Cookies look so much more interesting with just the little touch of a ribbon – normally I make batches of the same cookies in different sizes, poking a hole through the larger size which I later thread some sort of ribbon through. So effortless and yet making a real visual impact.

Try the cookies as table decorations.


You can put ribbons through any type of cookies but the chocolate colour makes a real statement on white.

Recipe used for these “Brunsli” cookies:

150g brown sugar,  pinch of salt, 250g ground almonds, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, pinch clove powder, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp flour, 1 – 2 egg whites, 100g bitter chocolate, 2 tsp cointreau.

Mix all the ingredients together and then roll out between two sheets of pastry into 1cm thick sheets. Place these in the fridge for at least 1 – 2 hours then take out and cut into which ever shape you prefer and bake in a preheated oven 160°, approximately 7 minutes.

Have fun!

  1. What deliciously beautiful looking cookies. I just love holiday baking. Don’t you? Thank you for the recipe, I’ll grab an online converter from grams to ounces. Those cookies would make for such great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers. I also wanted to thank you dropping by my blog. I appreciate the kind comment you left. I hope you have a wonderful day! Xo, Maria

    PS, I’m giving you an early scoop that I’m posting a brownie recipe tomorrow. I hope you stop by and let me know what you think. 🙂
