Pfff, then I have to tell you that make these Christmas cookies with spices has been a real hassle… Then think again, the recipe is super simple, but my little baby had decided that on this day, he only wanted to sleep in his mother’s arms, tucked in her blouse. Yes, but how !?

Well, I’ve learned how to be a red herring… When he was asleep, I gently laid in his recliner, I put my blouse on him, just under his nose that he believed that he was still against me and I made these tasty cookies for Christmas on one foot, the other moving the deckchair, as is my habit now. Phew, it’s not easy to do everything at the same time. And I do not even talk about pictures…
