Christmas Vibes – Happy Holidays

Tuesday, Dec 13th 2016

Time flies … no post I 2 months? What happened? The life I guess. Moving back and finally, settling was a bigger challenge than I had expected. Now I am looking forward to Christmas and the vibe of it. Candles, warm drinks and wool socks. Cold snow-filled plays during the day and cosy warm, evenings.

Here are recipes from this years treats – I always have to try something new, and I am glad my sister in law introduced me to Nilla`s Kitchen 🙂 great gluten-free book! (Swedish)

SAFFRON BISCOTTI

Ca 25 Biscotti

50 g Butter

0,5 g Saffron

2 Eggs

60 g Coconut Sugar

50 g Of your favourite nuts

100 g Almond Flour

50 g Buckwheat Flour

70 g Potato Flour

35 g Corn Flour

1,5 tsk Baking powder

Melt the butter and add the saffron. Wish the eggs and the sugar. Chop the nuts and mix them with all the dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients with the egg mixture and add the butter mix. Stir and make a dough – sticky but workable. Make two same size loaves on a pan lined with baking paper. Bake in the oven on 175c for 15 min. Take the loaves out and cut into biscuits size, approx. 2 cm wide. Continue to bake for another 30 min on 125c. Let the biscuits cool off on a rack.

CHRISTMAS LATTE / TEA

I make 1-2 large bottle of this tea base at once and keep it in the fridge – it only lasts until 2-3 days anyway 🙂

2 l (or 8 cups) Filtered water

3 Cinnamon sticks

3 Star Anis

One tsk Whole cloves

2 cm fresh ginger

1,5tsp Cardamom, whole

1,5tsp Nutmeg

Zest From 1 orange

1/2 Fresh lime, cut in slices

Let this simmer on low heat for 20 min then take the heat off and let it cool on the stove.

I add 1 cup of this mix this with 1 cup of alternative milk like coconut drink or almond milk. My own Christmas latte.

Everything tastes better with wool socks on, don’t forget!

Enjoy!
