Christmas is almost here! I cannot believe it! Like last year, I decided to make Christmas gifts for my friends by hand. I firmly believe that home-made gifts are the best as they show how much you care for the people you give them to.
This year, I decided to make 4 different goodies.
I started by making my Almond Cookies – Dolcetti di Mandorle as they are very easy to make and they are always a big hit whenever I bake them!
Then, I saw these amazing looking Exotic Shortbread Cookies over at my friend Reem’s site! Aren’t they gorgeous? I could not resist the temptation and decided to make these too! I think I cooked mine a couple of minutes longer than Reem’s and I also pressed them a little more… so they don’t look exactly the same, but these Indian inspired cookies are divine and I will be making them again and again… the saffron and cardamom are so good together!
Then I included a jar of my home-made Dulce de Leche… very easy to make and delicious!
And last, but not least… I added some of my sugar cookies shaped like Christmas tree ornaments.
I then wrapped them all individually and added some tags with the name of each item.
And then made a big parcel with all of them!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
