One thing that I like about living in Germany is that during the Christmas time, locals cook and bake many delicious local dishes — one of them is Vanille-Kipferl, also known in other countries as Italian cornetti, French crossaints, or Polish rogaliki. But however you call them, they are basically very crispy cookies covered with vanilla sugar. And for this simplicity I absolutely love them :-)
Do you remember these delightful ideas for folding puff pastry? This pastry dough is a miracle and the biggest accomplishment of French cooks. It's buttery in taste and fluffy, delicate and perfect for almost any baked recipe that is destined to impress. While this simple puff pastry is not as good as the original French recipe, it skips all that butter drama and difficulty, which will be a plus for less advanced cooks! Lightly knead the dough, let it rest in the refrigerator for some time and roll in one session.
Baguettes are a perfect bread for breakfast, soup, or a kick-ass sandwich — they have a crispy shell and tasty, slightly moist and white insides, perfect for cheese, jam or delicate meat toppings. And they look amazing, so you can surprise your friends and family with both delicious and great looking bread! The only caveat is the required baking form in the appropriate shape, but you will not regret buying it after you make your first batch!
Day are shorter now, and the weather is colder as the autumn and winter approach, so it's a good idea to brighten your day with some crispy cookies!
This recipe is really easy and cutting out the cookies is much fun. And of course, then you're left with enormous amount of hot, aromatic cookies that you can share with friends and your close ones.
They are tasty while still hot, but will get better if you leave them on the counter for a day or two, because they will absorb some of the humidity, making them really delicate and delicious!
This French inspired recipe is a wonderful start into an autumn cooking season — sweet, tasty, crispy and soft at the same time. The most important part of this cake make apples, and they are the star. Choose the juicy, soft kind that feels grainy and rubs of when rubbing with fingers, they are usually sold in huge bundles on the cheap.
