Cookies for all!

I have to make these cookies once a week. They are easy done and delicious. Do you want to try them, too?

Mix in a bowl:

50 g white flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
100 g sugar
100 g grated almonds or nuts
125 butter at room-temperature
1 egg
1 spoon of booze
pods of two vanilla beans or one paket of vanilla sugar

after all the indegrends are mixed 

add 180 g of rolled oats and mix until the oats are incorporated.

Now form your cookies.

Preheat your oven to 180 ° C (top and bottom heat) and bake the cookies until they have the desired colour.

I use non-stick baking paper - so I do not have to clean so much.

I love mine a bit darker and crisp, my husband loves his not so dark and crisp.

Today - give away - closed

Hey, this is not an Easter nest - no, it is just a hat I finished today.
I tried to let it look like an Ester nest - or I just could not get this pic change its direction.
It is made out of 100 % wool and I made it in a medium size.

When you want to get this one please leave a comment.
I will choose a winner the next days.

Edit: I just started a second one in the same colours, so jabbot and Sandra, you both will get one.

Not blogging does not mean I do not live. Just the contrary - there is so much going on in world 1.0.
I visited the Bänderei Kafka in Wuppertal on Saturday. I alltimes wanted to go there, but they are only open one Saturday per month and it is a long drive. I bought a lot of ribbons - some are allready on their way to Japan and Austria. They produce with 100 year old machines ribbons that are beautiful - and they have very new designs, too. We drove on to visit relatives in the Hunsrück area and came back on sunday with our 14 years old nephew.  Monday I painted eggs and today we went to the local blockhuse to enjoy a steak. Oh, and it is the second week on my new working place. Still a bit new sometimes, but the co-workers are friendly and helpful.

Just some pics from last week in random order.

Yesterday was o.k., but today I got the hives feeling.
You know - everything you know is not enough and you are scared like crazy?
I know, it is just the first days and it will get better, but...
Still a lot to learn, guys.

Seems I do not blog as regular as usual these days. Well, a lot is happening just now. I will start a new job tomorrow.  I am still waiting for my results from my exams. I have to learn for the next part of my exams. And I do the usual stuff around home like cooking, baking, gardening and so on.

This week

Yes, I was in Berlin last week.

Strolling around and taking in beautifuf sights. 

Learning during daytime and enjoying the city at night.

Last time I said I would eat an oyster in the KaDeWe next time and I did.
