Thank you auntie for sharing your recipe!

Finally I was able to give it a try it was fantastic. As like me who loves the taste of plain, not soft but in mouth melting cookies and of course easy to make cookies believe me this is one you can’t quit and I will share with you some changes and creativity’s to try with this recipe for later I like to play and make SURPRISE recipes a lot.

Original recipe:

3 tablespoons finely grounded nuts

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 cup sunflower oil

2-2/5 cups wheat flour

How to do:

Preheat your Oven to 170 c

Mix all dry ingredients together

Add the oil and knead the dough little bit until it forms a nice dough

Take 1 or 1/2 tablespoon of the dough shape it into balls

Put them on non-stick baking sheets you don’t have to space them much they don’t rise or melt just 1 cm is enough.

Bake them 10-15 minutes they don’t have to turn pink and never brown attention please!

Take them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes

Dust them with powdered sugar or mix of powdered sugar and cinnamon.

Put some SURPRISES and creativity to your recipes!

I put almonds instead of nuts you can put any kind you like or as like me what kind you have at home.

I add some unsweetened finely shreded coconut flakes or anise seeds instead of coconut shreds or any kind you like.

I think if  you like more flavor than plain cookies use organic coconut oil or sesame or any kind you like.

I think next time definitely I will try anise seeds version and coconut oil version mmmm sounds yummy.

I also tried to shape them like fingers as you can see in the picture do as your creativity allows you you will be SURPRISED.

Until next time with more SURPRISES!

Just because its cold outside does not mean you can’t wear your cute shoes. So what are you rocking on your feet today?

Ending 2012 – Surprise of Snow

20121230-193409.jpgDecember 31. Felt the grace of snow today, cold crisp air was twinkling with ice particles. Peace and quiet was everywhere… Could not help but admire it and take these photos.

Soon we leave 2012 behind and enter 2013. The snow slowed the hustle and bustle of our crazy, commercialized, self important, overly busy days a little bit – reminding us what’s truly important.

We will remember this year for many events, and surprises. Also 2012 will always mark the year we dared to surprise ourselves and started our blog. We thank you for reading and sharing us with others.

We, at Surprise Saffron, wish you all an amazing 2013 – may it be filled with fun surprises. You can count on us to surprise you. But most of all… remember to surprise yourself !!
