Christmas in the Heat

I know I’ve said it before, but it isn’t cold everywhere in India during this time of the year. It’s actually pretty hot, like 30C hot. So naturally while creating this calendar I had to come up with a way of incorporating heat into these cookies.  I decided to go all out and do a…

Dip Dip Stixx

For most of the world, it’s hot chocolate weather. For India, however, it remains tea weather. Hot or cold, its always tea weather here. So if you’re in the north or the south, these cookies are perfect for you.  Just like the cookies I made in my last post, you don’t need any fancy cookie…

Skeleton Gingerbread Cookies
