“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

These are the homemade alfajores I made as part of my gifts for some friends.
I wanted to capture their splendor before I carefully transport these extremely crumbly cookies several hours north tomorrow.
This is the alfajores recipe that pretty much nailed my favorite cookies from Peruvian chicken places and Bolivian bakeries.

Delicious cookies I made last week for accompanying decorating the Christmas tree.
They were super easy, too: you basically just throw all the ingredients in a food processor, processes until the dough forms a ball, press the dough into a baking sheet, cover it in almonds and sugar, bake, and slice.

A little while back, I made Christmas cookies for home and work.

My aunt sent me awesome cooking-making supplies for Christmas, so I decided I had to really take advantage of them and make three kinds of cookies: decorated sugar cookies, molasses spice cookies, and wheat- and dairy-free almond butter cookies.

  1. Cookie supplies!
  2. Cookie cutting.
  3. Cookie cutting.
  4. How the almond cookies went in…
  5. How the almond cookies came out: they all ran into each other and ended up filling the whole cookie sheet. I had to cut the huge cookie into a bunch of little ones. Also pictured: naked baked sugar cookies.
  6. The only brand of molasses left at the store at the time. :(
  7. Mixing the molasses cookies.
  8. LOVE THE COOKIE SCOOP.
  9. Rolled in sugar and ready to bake.
  10. Baked molasses cookies, yum!
  11. The basic decorating icing, which I then divided and made into different colors.
  12. The Santa beards iced.
  13. Santas done!
  14. Snowflakes done, candy canes started.
  15. Snowmen done!
  16. Christmas trees and stars done!
  17. I layered cookies into a holiday cookie tin to take to work (they were a hit).
  18. Fully decorated cookies in the top layer of the tin.
