December is undoubtedly the most busy month of the year. Am I right or am right?
Luckily all the plans for December are always great. I look forward to every single event and enjoy everything. Wonderful December. This weekend I went on a tour with the musical-team. We went up north for practicing the entire weekend. That was so much fun. Sunday I went to see the Nutcracker with my mom and the last two days I’ve been doing a Christmas show with the musical team. Wonderful days.
I love December. There is just one downside about the month: It seems to be dark constantly. Living in the North is not fun in the wintertime. I bike to school in darkness and when I come home it is almost dark again. At least too dark for taking photos. I just managed to photograph these lovely cookies on a day where my two first lessons had been cancelled. Yay!
A typical Danish Christmas cookies is one called Vanilla Wreaths. I’ve mentioned them before. They are definitely one of my favorites. But not very healthy. They basically consist of butter, sugar and flour (oh, and a tiny bit of almonds). So I was determined to make them healthier.
These aren’t completely healthy. Actually they are “half-healthy”. I subbed half of the butter for almond butter. Half of the flour for almond flour and wholewheat flour and half of the sugar for honey. I didn’t dare making them completely healthy since they were for my entire family, and my mother and brother can tell immediately if cookies and cakes are healthy.
But not these ones! They both said they were amazing. Even after I told them, the cookies were half way healthy they still claimed they were fantastic. Win!
Ladys and gentlemen. I’m happy to introduce you to one of my favorite Christmas cookies: The vanilla wreaths.
