Julebakst, Christmas baking

Now it is time to make the baking for Christmas ready. Today baking day!
On the right cocos cookies, on the top of the stove 'hvetestanger'. I don't know the English word for it. It is sweet white bread with vanilla pudding inside. They go in the freezer when cold. When we use them I 'll make sugar-glace on top of the bread parts.
In the oven an English fruit cake. This will stay for two weeks in the cellar and get a drip with brandy now and than on the top. The day before Christmas I 'll cover it with marzipan.
Next week I have to bake a few plates little cookies too with chocolate and almond bits.

Oh Ati, it is so wonderful to see what other's have for the festive time of the year. I am always fascinated by foreign foods especially the sweet ones, lol. I loved to see what other countries have to celebrate the time of the year.
I remember when visiting Austria when I was a young teenager and the pastries and Apfel strudel oh the taste of it all. Thank you for sharing this with us. I love to see it all. Even if I am watching my weight. I can sttil study the menu surely. LOL What's next Ati? Merry Christmas Tricia x

Så deilig det ser ut - koselig med litt bakst til jul. Ønsker deg en flott adventstid.

Your baking looks truly scrumptious. Like you I have been busy baking - mincemeat, mince slices, all of which contains lots of brandy. This week I'll be baking puddings and pies and all sorts - isn't it great the run up to Christmas.

It is very satisfying to see all the food put out over the Christmas holidays - and everyone eating every scrap

They look yummy and that hvetestanger sounds like a heavenly treat. Yum, I love fruitcake. My mother used rum, but of course, I never got any of that kind as a child.
