Joy of the World


First thing first, MERRY CHRISTMAS pretties! 

I should have posted yesterday right on Christmas day. But I was too busy finishing the last book of Eragon series, The Inheritance. Definitely not a waste reading it. Full set of fantasy and adventure! My favourite kind of stories
.
Referring to this Christmas post, you'd think I'd post some Christmas-y outfit right? I swear I would love to...but due to a very unfortunate thing, which is my camera didn't work properly, I could only pick some pictures that noise-less enough to be shared *sad*.


I wore a red knitted dress which is extremely lovely. It's a vintage I got from mom. A lace top as inner and lace collar completed my outfit! The classic and pretty collar is a gift from Stellar Neckwear as I answered their questionaire. Thanks! Oh, and the tough boots was made based on my design. It was used to complete the whole outfit I designed for a Junior Fashion Design Competition few years ago. Will share more later :p


Ah, and during the day, I made Sugar Cookies too! Took the recipe from Martha Stewart's and adapted it as needed. It was an easy cookies recipe. Scroll more for the recipe!


Basic Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour, and more for rolling
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar (I still feel that it's too sweet, but originally I dislike things to be to sweet)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon (if you like cinnamon like I do, do add 1 more tsp!)
Icing :  Sift 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar into a bowl. Using mixer, add in 3-4 tbsp of lemon juice. Add food coloring for more fun. Put the icing into piping bag and use variations of tips if desired.

Directions:
  1. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  2. In a different bowl and with an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in egg, vanilla, and cinnamon. With mixer on low, gradually add the flour mixture, beat until combined.
  3. Divide the dough into half, flatten into disks and wrap each in plastic. Freeze until firm.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Remove one dough and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Roll out approximately 0,3-0,5 cm. Cut shapes with cookie cutters as you like then transfer to baking sheet.
  5. Bake, rotating halfway until edges are golden for about 10-15 minutes. Cool completely on wireracks. And decorate as desired!


Wish I could send each of you a pack of my cookie and a pretty knitted dress as Christmas present! Sé ono waisé iliaMay you be happy 
Much love, :* :* :*
