Stay-at-home mum and geographer by profession, I love to cook and tell heartfelt stories. I enjoy trying new recipes, dishes, and spices.

Isn't it wonderful when the whole house smells like baking biscuits, cakes, or cookies? Especially during the holidays. It always reminds me of my grandmother and brings me back to my childhood. My grandmother is still here with us, but my childhood, well, let's say it's kind of over.

Walnuts Taste Great in Desserts

My grandmother used to bake a lot of desserts with walnuts. Among them was the well-known potica (original Slovenian dessert); she baked all kind of shapes and sizes of different cookies, biscuits, croissants, and cakes. Although she is from Bosnia, her potica is still the best one I have ever eaten.

The Comforting Smell of Cinnamon

Mmm, the smell of cinnamon, especially in the winter. Cinnamon is one of the commonly used spices. It goes perfectly in apple strudel, as well as in many other desserts. I don't have to highlight that my grandmother makes really good apple strudel. Back in Bosnia, she learned to make perfectly thin, unleavened, flaky dough for all kinds of different pastries.

Walnuts and Cinnamon Make for a Tasty Treat!

Most of the time we have walnuts and cinnamon at our house. So I have recently remembered those 'plain' biscuits that I love so much. Plain biscuits without a fuss, without various creams, fillings, or decorations. And heavenly delicious. And wow, my mother-in-law makes them too! And I've "veganized" them.

      They are really good. And the best thing is that they last long - up to one month stored in cookie box :) Well we eat them in 2 days if we make them, but mother-in-law makes really a ton of them, so we have them for a long time
