Christmas Baking with Your Family

Only 10 more days to go - Christmas is coming!
Can you smell it?

Enam, my 6 year old son, was helping me this morning to get some more Christmas-Delights into the oven:

We made some Vanilla Crescents.

In German, during the Advents - and Christmas season, Vanilla Crescents can be found in almost every household.
And, if you asked me, right so because Vanilla Crescents are absolutely yummy!
Once baked, they will stays fresh and juicy for at least 2-3 weeks, when you store them in a closed container.
So they can be enjoyed the whole Advents Season.
