    I have got the recipe for those from a pharmacies monthly magazine, so I guess they are classified as medical treatment...

    Very nice bakery. One of my german cookbooks has a gingerbread house for cover but never made it.
    Most years if health is reasonable I bake fruitcake. This year I bake 2 fruitcakes, one is slightly smaller. No pictures. I use the light fruitcake recipe by Tess Mallos from her cookbook Cooking in Colour. I vary the dried fruits and age it with sherry, just added sherry just now to the fruitcakes. I baked them last sunday and added sweet sherry when they had cooled off so this is 2nd time and next two sundays I add more sherry.
    When DD gets home from college I will bake her favorite chocolate cake.
    Later this afternoon I bake some ginger cookies they are very warming so sort of medicinal food.

    Later this morning baking a trial batch of cookies, using my diy cocoa mix which was inspired by recipes in the old Sunset cookbooks from the 1970s. In a empty instant coffee jar I mix 2/3 cocoa powder 1/3 instant coffee add powdered cinnamon, a little nutmeg, ginger, a small bit of seasalt, few spoons brown sugar mix all together. To use as hot cocoa add to hot milk stir well, optional add marshmallow on top.

    *uncontrolled drooling for the month of December *

    It all looks so good! Right now all that shortbread has my attention most, but that will no doubt change every time I go through the pictures.

    I only make one cookie for the season, because they are ones my wife likes. Sort of a chocolate shortbread ball with glace cherries inside. Nothing very interesting to look at.

    I really like this expression- never heard "drooling" before.

    new vocabulary learned ✅

    A quick note on using 'drool': Normally we use it to talk about dogs; good manners say a human should not visibly drool. So to use it about people is a deliberate exaggeration.

    I thought I was finished with my bakery for this year's Christmas...

    Yesterday I found out that all cookies I've made last weekend were already gone... :eek:

    I decided to bake some new - here are the results...
