Advent Day 18: Bake Day: #SavouringtheSeason


One of my favourite things to do with the girls is to bake... Yes it's messy, yes it goes everywhere, yes it particularly sucks when your dishwasher has decided to give up the ghost a week before Christmas and you have to hand-wash everything... but you know what? It's worth it, for the little cake-mix/biscuit-dough smeared smiles that greet me afterwards.

And this week was no different.
This week we made three big batches of our mixed spice biscuits, packaged 'em up and handed them round the neighbours with big smiles and a confident "merry Christmas" from Ava and a very cute "may cwistmas" from Heidi. We handed out invites to our carol service on Sunday too, and do you know what? It was just so fab to meet some new neighbours. We have been here four years now and are good friends with our neighbours on either side, but it was just great to get to know some of our further afield neighbours and extend a bit of Christmas cheer.


And yes, though it started well, it did end with two rather cold and very grumpy children, I don't want you be imagining a picture perfect family here. It. Was. Far. From.

But anyway, I thought I'd share some of our favourite Christmas biscuit recipes for you to pick and choose from. Though I'm holding back on the gingerbread... Our gingerbread house is on next week's to do list :-)




Enjoy! Who's joining me for a gingerbread house challenge next week?!

  1. I'm with you on the biscuit making - it's hugely messy and lots of fun around here - but I might have to draw the line at building a gingerbread house - my engineering just isn't that good!
