Christmas Cookies Jars

2014-12-15 20.59.25
For me Christmas is a time of sharing. I want to share things I can do best and things that give me pleasure with people I care about. Every year I would send Christmas cards to family and friends. It’s really nice to receive them. This year I decided to make some cookie jars instead. Making cookies takes almost no time and it will be greatly appreciated by your friends and family.
I decided to go for some Leckerlis* – gingerbread cookies with candied citrus peel and Green Anise Cookies. Both of them are very easy to make with a stand mixer and are a pretty delicious substitute for a Christmas card. You still have time to make some tomorrow 🙂

This will be my last post before Christmas, so Happy Holidays everyone. Hope you have a wonderful time!
* To make Leckerlis you can use the same recipe as for the Gingerbread Cookie and you add 100 g of mixed lemon and orange candied peel and cover with an icing while still warm.

Green Anise Cookies
adapted from Christophe Felder
  • 3 eggs,
  • 250 g of sugar,
  • 15 g green anise seeds,
  • 250 g flour.
  1. Combine the sugar and eggs in a bowl of your stand mixer.
  2. Whip for 10 minutes at a high speed and then for 10 minutes at a medium speed.
  3. Fold the flour and anise seeds into the beaten eggs.
  4. Pipe the batter on a buttered and floured baking sheet. Make them around 2.5 cm wide, leaving around 2 cm space in between.
  5. Let them dry out on the baking sheet for around 4 hours, until a dry crust forms.
  6. bake at 180 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes, until the tops are puffed, but still pale. Let them cool on the baking sheet.
