An Indoors Thursday in December

2017-12 pepparkakor

Stormy and rainy outside today… I’ve been mostly ignoring the weather, though - staying in, and making gingerbread biscuits/cookies…



Back in my working years (in a previous life century) I often used to take a day off this time of year to bake for Christmas. Then followed a lot of years when, because of my neck/arm pains, I had to avoid all recipes involving manual kneading and tucking of dough, and lifting of heavy baking-plates.  I think it wasn’t until last year that I had a go at making my own gingerbread biscuits again. But then I managed to successfully adjust my recipe for a smaller batch; and so I decided to try it again this year. Feeling quite pleased with myself at the end of the day. There’s really nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread/cake/biscuits to cheer up a rainy winter day! ; )


Through My Lens


  1. There's an old commercial here in the States (can't remember which one) that says, "nothing says loven' like something from the oven". Anything baked in the oven smells wonderful.

  2. OH! They are so delicate and beautifully done! Much too perfect to eat! Wish I could smell and eat them. And you fared all right making them, with no pain?

    1. Ginny, I'm afraid there is no 'on/off button' but more of a sliding scale (varying from one day to another) But yes I fared all right ;)

  3. It's lovely, Monica, and I can almost smell the scent from your pictures!
    The wind and rain are here today. We're also in for some snow this weekend. Not so good, since O.K. has a 150 km drive to come to my place - and back Sunday night.

    1. Thanks Meike. Here we had no snow, but strong winds and rain yesterday - and today icy roads in some places. Hope your O. managed a safe drive.

  4. I can almost smell them, they do look good to me...
