Cookies or koekjes...as long as they are home made


Cookie.... Derived from the Dutch koekje, meaning little cake, the cookie came over with the first ships to New Amsterdam ,America and as far as the rest of the world is concerned, it never went home. And it started its own historie. And then, as it happened , this Dutch girl made American cookies for her Dutch Christmas in Holland and brought those "koekjes" back home again.
Who cares , as long as they are home made ,with love.
So , I baked a lot, had a cookie-exchange with Karen , from Bake-my-Day and we even baked together , in her kitchen. More cookies and lots of fun ,believe me.Karen has the pictures !
My dream, to eat cookies for the rest of the year , didn't come true.At Christmas-day, my family came over and I was almost to late to make this only picture .In one evening (Ah , well.. , and the day before , I had to make sure they stayed OK , didn't I )they where all gone.

But...after two days , when I cleaned out my fridge ,I found a roll of lemon / poppy-seed dough , Karen made. Totally forgotten. Hooray ! I'm planning to bake them when nobody is home . And keep them all for myselve. To eat cookies for the rest of the year !

May all yoúr dreams come true next year !
And "Cake it easy " in 2009 !

Love, Monique

A woman with a roll of cookie dough in the fridge is truly wealthy indeed!
