Minty Candy Cane Cookies

Christmas is drawing near! This is my biggest bake (in quantity) for Christmas. A total of 215 pieces. They tasted just like the real minty candy cane lolly but in a cookie! They are made without any artificial coloring and flavoring. Beetroot powder was used to colour the red portion of the dough.

White Chocolate Shortbread Cookie Bar

The weather have been very cooling for the past 2 weeks. Really feels like Christmas is coming. To start off my Christmas bakes, I made a shortbread cookie from a recipe that I kept to bake in the cooler months. This recipe yielded a shortbread cookie bar that holds it shape but once you bite into it, the richness of the butter and crumbly cookie will melt in your mouth.

Quick Mixed Berries and Cheese Scones

I have just returned from a family year end vacation. A lovely trip to Australia's Port Macquarie, NSW and Gold Coast, QLD. We spent 2 weeks between the 2 places and yes...it was a lot of time to spend in just 2 places. Our family likes to  make self drive trips on vacations and spend enough time to get to know the place and culture like a traveler rather than a tourist.
