Caramel filled Hertzoggies

Caramel Filled Hertzoggies is the hybrid of an SA favorite cookie that normally has an apricot filling. These, these cookies are just super duper amazing! I absolutely love the normal kind of Hertzoggies, but I am sure that these are from now on my absolute favorite.

Favorite festive treats

Favorite festive treats bring back so many memories of my Childhood Christmas. No our Noël experience in France has been somewhat different and sometimes challenging, but we remained optimistic as this season allows you to be. The smells of Speculoos spiced lattes, Nutella filled crepes and glue wine. When it comes to celebrating a French Christmas I have it pretty down to a T for this year to come. Come and read a bit more and get a few ideas for your Christmas table.

Buche de Noël Mignon Reine

Buche de Noël Mignon Reine is a basic sponge cake rolled with a filling and then decorated as a fun activity. I would think that it should be one of the best ways to entertain your kids this festive season and teach them a thing or two about baking.

Peanut butter Horlicks cookies

Peanut butter Horlicks cookies are a winner for sure! Horlick's are probably one of my most favorite drinks and things to eat during the winter season. It is very hard to find a good malty drink in a country where espresso is king. We came upon a packet of Horlicks and just by drinking it was not enough for me...I had to make some cookies too!!

Coffee Speculoos cookies

Coffee speculoos cookies and Espresso's are made for each other! I made these cookies last week and my taste tester was quite pleased. This is an old traditional South African recipe. In France, "Petite Gateau" is the name for small cookies that you receive with your tea or coffee and these cookies are perfect to accompany a hot cup of tea.
