Welcoming the New Year peacefully at home with cats and boyfriend, although the plans for the starting year are exciting and challenging 🙂
Mudcake which I wont be making again…
Sesam- and sesam-coconut-cookies to my collegues at work. The recipe is Japanese, but the coconut version my own mix 🙂 The recipe makes about 50.
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 roasted sesame seeds
Mix together butter, sugar and egg. Mix in remaining ingredients. Place rounded teaspoonfulls on buttered cookie sheet. Bake 4-5 mins at 180 degrees of Celsius.
For the coconut version I mix for the half of the dough 1/4 dl coconut flakes.
I made this lavender-olive oil soap with my mother for gifts to friends and family.
