Christmas is just a few days away!!!! YAY!!

So, as I write this post, listening to Story of My Life by One Direction and dreading the fact that in a few hours, I’ll be getting dressed to college, I’m thinking about the season finale of Dexter that I watched last night!

I am sorry but I absolutely CANNOT get over this!!!! I did not expect for it to happen the way it happened!

For those who haven’t still seen it: SPOILER ALERT!!!!

I was totally rooting for a Happy Ending! I thought Dex would go away with Hannah and Deb would marry Quinn!{finally}

😦

How sad was the finale!

But these cookies helped me a LOT!

They made me forget about this depressing turn of events for a while!

And now I am slowly getting back to getting into Christmas mood!

Yessss!!!!!!!

So, I’ve finally made the decision to move to a self hosted WordPress blog!

Any suggestions that you would like to give? It would REALLY HELP!

So, I’m thinking of BlueHost and I’m opting for a premade theme! But since I have a little knowledge on CSS, I was thinking of making a few tweaks to the original theme to personalise it more…

I also designed my very own logo! And I am soooo excited I cannot wait to reveal it! J

Hopeully by the end of this week and before Christmas things will get sorted!

SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!

And now back to these delicious crisp Christmassy cookies!

It’s more biscuity because I rolled it a little thin. And to make it a little festive, I added ginger powder to the basic cookie dough! Yes, the cookie dough is extremely basic with just flour, butter, sugar and an egg!Plus, I’ve been wanting to experiment with glass stained cookies for just too long! Then I came across these fantastic peppermint cherry rocks. And I was like….. YUSSSSS!!!! FINALLLLLLLY!

These cookies are too damn good to ignore! You have to make these! Excuse my poor quality of photographs!

I was so caught up with college assignments that i completely forgot that I had to photograph these babies! And it is only at around 6:30 in the evening did it strike me! And these are the results! :\

But they taste good! So, that’s a good thing right?

  1. These look so pretty! Love the touch of ginger and the whole glass look of them. Adding the string to make them ornaments is a great touch. Good luck with all the changes for your blog…sounds exciting. I have no tech skills so no advice on this end, unfortunately.

  2. Gorgeous looking seasonal cookies Samina – so pretty! Good luck with the changes to the blog, such technical challenges send a shiver down my spine! Can’t wait to see the new logo 🙂

  3. You’re moving?? Aww that is super super exciting!
    My #1 advice is that you have loads of cookies on hand, because it is such a weary process (I’m sorry!) and sometimes all that you’ll want will be cookies. But it’s so worth it in the end!
    I can’t wait to see the new look, I’m sure it’ll be great :–)

  4. Wow, Samina these look amazing! I love how you photographed these cookies. Good luck with your blog move. I use blue host and have a genesis theme and have been happy. I can’t wait to see you new logo!
