Currant and walnut pastry cookies



Can you believe I have nothing much to write after the 10 days of breal other than that we had a wonderful time , didn't go to see the carnival parade in the next town as I have seen it few times and I think if you see one you have seen it all, it is always same, just my opinion and I didn't want to stand in the cold weather in the street to see the carnival, if it was summer time then I would have gone ( maybe).
Now to the recipe I made this delicious Currant and Walnut Pastry Cookies from Dragons kitchen, you can get the recipe here her pictures are much more nicer so go and have a peep there.
I had bookmarked the moment i saw them in her place, just than it took a bit longer for me to make them. I had made them before i went for the break, didn't had time to post it.

My camera was in close up mode so the picture is not good, but the taste was so yummy delicious , that I will be making them again and it is so so easy to make them too.

I didn't had course sugar so i adde pearl sugar which I has that is the huge white pieces you see in the pic. Next time when I make them i will make sure I do have corse sugar.
Now I am looking to the picture i am getting hungry fro them.

Sending this to Ruth's bookmarked recipes.

Good to see you back,F! I feel the same way about 4th of July fireworks too. We went to few fireworks first few yrs too. It rains without a fail every year and it always a mess to stand there for hours. So we don't go now. kids are grown now too, not that interested. Glad you had a good time with S though! :)

Currant and Walnuts Pastry sounds yum, looks delicious!

Asha thankyou, I totally agree too. Last year we went with shyama for the evening show as most of her firends were going and we took her too and it was so freezing cold.
Now she is also not intrested to do these carnival things.

Elra yeah i agree you can't stop with one, calorie or no calorie.
