Grand Junction, Colorado – Baking cookies

Christmas time is baking cookies. Of course one needs little presents when invited. I decided for two traditional German recipes to bring some idea of German Christmas culture to America: Small vanilla croissants with almonds and one-eyes – two butter cookies glued together with red currant jelly, the upper one has a hole in the middle. It’s a bit difficult to get the right ingredients – I don’t find ground almonds, non-chemically treated lemons although organic cultivation, and vanilla sugar or vanilla powder. But with some improvisation we find solutions. Some clients of the building supplies store are a bit irritated of the delicious sweet smell coming from that strange camper.
