DSC_0770

Well, with this recipe it is official autumn for me!  Time for apples, nuts, pumkins, Halloween, long movie nights, rainy walks outside and cold weather. I am not a big fan of this dark and rainy time of the year, therefore I wanted to make the start of this season more easy. And is there anything better than an easy dessert together with a hot tea while sitting on your cozy sofa and watch the rain outside?

I have to admit that i love italian food, of course the typical dishes as pizza, pasta and Lasagne, but also the sweet things as ice cream, Tiramisu or Cantuccini. Inspired by italian influences I thought about a dessert which is not that typical in Italy: A sweet Lasagne! The clue of this recipe is that it is based on different layers of apples, cookies, caramel and a smooth creamcheese cream.

Holidays for your soul!

apple blog 3

Due to the fact that a very famous IT company just released some new must-have gadgets I thougth about a fun baking idea to pick up this big event. I have to admit that I am as well a big fan of some of the produts that Apple offers. When I was browsing through the internet these cute Apple cookies cutters catched my eyes and I easily adapted them to real “Apple” Cookies.

The recipe is a easy and basic recipes and can be used for any cookie shape (Keep in mind when it comes to christmas cookies!), so it’s your time to be creative. I was very surprised when I saw the amazing offer of different cookies cutters, from iPhones, cars, shoes etc. For every person and occasion there is a right and suitable cookie. Keep in mind when you are looking for a last minute present for family or friends.
