Christmas baking: Chocolate chip cookies

DSC_0294 (2)

I can’t believe I left my blog unattended for over a month!  I had a few sewing projects since the last update but just didn’t find the time to sit and write them down.  I also came up with a few baking recipes.  Hopefully I’ll be able to blog like crazy now that Christmas break is just a few blinks away.

Speaking of Christmas,  everyone’s been on a baking frenzy here in CZ.  Me and husband dearest already baked two boxes of traditional Czech Christmas cookies last weekend, and just a few hours ago I baked a batch of chocolate-chip cookies to bring to his Aunt’s for our visit tomorrow.  Adi’s family loves these cookies and since it’s the season for sharing,  I decided to share my “secret” recipe here. 🙂

I found these super cute cookie boxes in a shop by Metro Skalka and bought four pieces in different sizes.  These cookies in a pretty box will really make a nice Christmas gift, don’t you think?  Or you can wrap them in a plastic like I did in the photo below.  Ah, the creative minds work nonstop this season. 🙂
