Spelt Spice Cookies

Before we are heading straight to Christmas Baking I have one more Fall inspired recipe for you. Saying that it is obviously not only suited for Fall, but take some star or Christmas tree cookie cutters and you have a perfectly simple Christmas cookie. I had two main inspirations for these cookie, one being that I just bought some super cute IKEA cookie cutter with a squirrel, a squirrel!

The second and main reason however was that I wanted to bake a cheesecake (recipe coming soon) and when opening my cupboard I realized that there was only an empty cookie box left. Those cookies were meant to become my cookie base for my cheesecake, but living with a boyfriend aka cookie monster I was naive enough to expect cookies in my cupboard. My fault, sorry for that.

So what else could you do as a food blogger on a Sunday? You have a look in the cupboard and see what is left there and find some sugar and spelt flour. So I was able to bake some simple cookies which could serve both as cookie base for my cheesecake as well as for decoration on top of them 🙂  I added some wonderful spices to make them extra special, spiced squirrel cookies. It isn’t getting any better than that.

Have a lovely weekend,

  1. Hehe, Männer sind doch alle gleich. Bei uns passiert das regelmäßig mit meiner guten Schokolade. Ich finde eine tolle Sorte, gönne mir eine Tafel (Stückchen für Stückchen)…und auf einmal ist alles weg! Und keiner hat sie je gesehen… 😛 Mit Dinkelmehl backe ich total gern! Liebe Grüße, Carina

    1. Hahahah, ja ich glaube da sind sie alle gleich. Und dann die Schuld auf mich schieben, weil ich hätte ja wissen müssen dass er alles auf isst 😉
      Ja Dinkelmehl mag ich auch gerne, werde jetzt öfter damit backen 😀 GLG!

  2. hey rebecca, also wenn du bei DIY mitmachst kannst du gerne was selbstbasteln (da hat man ja auch einen wareneinsat ) oder du backst etwas in der foodkategorie. Das kann man ja auch hübsch verpacken oder ne kleinigkeit dazukaufen, damit der beschenkte noch was kleines „haltbares“ hat 😀
    Ich würde mich freuen wenn du dabei wärst!
