I love baking, but since so many of my “consumers” are trying to eat healthfully, or experiment with different diets now and then, I try to support them, and do not bake as much. I also need to learn from their good judgment and cut down on these indulgences.
However, when Holidays come around, and parties are to be attended to, and family and friends to join for some merry making, I get back to my baking.
Another very special cookie recipe for my Christmas cookies selection this year, are the Dycio Crescents. These might look like a lot of work, forming crescents from cookie dough, but soon you will find out how simple these actually are.
These crescents are not very sweet, but light and flaky in texture, and the jam centers make them that much more delightful
I know some of you started baking your Christmas cookies a while back, and are all done by now, but I just started this weekend, and if it wasn’t for the huge snow fall, and all the shoveling we had to do, I would have been done baking and posting my recipes, and pictures, for you to enjoy.
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.
