TWD: Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben


Teanna's pick for TWD this week could not have come at a better time. As Chinese New Year is only one month away, I'm currently looking for recipes to bake as gifts for my relatives. So when I saw Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben, I knew immediately that this cookies would be perfect for the occassion!

To test the recipe out, I only made half a batch of the dough, and I also added some black sesame to give it an Asian twist. The cookies certainly did not disappoint, it's easy to prepare and extremely yummy too!

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Teanna's blog!
