PISTACHIO BUTTER COOKIES WITH WALNUTS
Every Christmas was very special as a kid. Dad made it quite memorable for me. It was the festive season, and he made sure it was remembered fondly.
There is a bakery in Bangalore(India), a very famous one, NILGIRIS. They had/have a Christmas Cake Show which showcases beautiful pieces of art which were huge: the TAJ MAHAL, Titanic, Barbie dolls, castles, chariots, sports players,completely made of cake. The cake artists took weeks to mold and remold. There were rows and rows of exhibits. Kids gaped at those wonders and almost wanted to touch it.
I would hold my Dad’s hand and drag him around, and he, just like a kid, was amazed and equally excited along with me. He definitely created memories for me.
Another thing about Christmas, the PLUM CAKE(a dry fruit and nuts cake). It is the most popular of cakes during Christmas, and it is sold like hot cakes, no pun intended.
My dad got so many for us, and I would not stop eating them until my stomach hurt. I miss the original Nilgiri Plum Cake, although coming here, I’ve made a version of the original which is mighty close. I bake it for Christmas almost every year. However, that’s for another post. Today, it’s these awesome, simple, yet lovely cookies.
Well, it’s the time to be thankful. Time for Christmas and New Year!! I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas. I’ll leave you for now with these middle eastern cookies. Off for some much needed vacation!
