Plain Vanilla.

You know I love Christmas time, right? I love it. It’s cosy. It’s comforting. It smells like Vanilla Crescents.

Vanilla crescents are simple. Plain vanilla biscuits. (Deutsche Version.)

I prepared shortcrust

… and after it rested some hours in the fridge, Mum came over after work. And we had some relaxing hours of simple crescent shaping, crescent baking

… and bathing crescents in vanilla sugar.

And then, we had our beautiful and yummy Vanilla Crescents. With tea and candles and a lovely smelling flat.

Now it’s officially Christmas time for me. Right in time! Because tomorrow, it’s the first Sunday in Advent. Did you almost miss it, too? We only have a month of Christmas time left. Make use of it! Decorate your flat, go to Christmas markets, drink tea with your loved ones and just enjoy it. Don’t be stressed. Have a great month.
