Sugar wafers – Cookie Recipe

If you are looking for an easy, light (no butter or any other fat used) , and dainty cookies, this is a recipe for you. This is a very simple recipe, quick baking, and produces wafer thin delicious cookies. In taste, these cookies resemble lady fingers or zwieback cookies. I used vanilla extract in this recipe, but I think almond extract would produce a very interesting flavor as well.

These crisp and feather-light wafers make a great addition to a dessert platter for a tea party.

Ukrainian Christmas Traditions

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. Everyone is rushing around to get shopping done, attend parties, put final touches on holiday decorations, and plan holiday meals.

The Ukrainians have many rich traditions associated with the celebration of Christmas. Many of them have been modernized to accommodate everyone’s busy lifestyle, but others are still kept original, and passed on from generation to generation.
