Bailey's Flavored Cranberry & Pumpkin Seeds Cookies

" This is my entry for the Christmas Giveaway hosted by Swee San of The Sweet Spot "

This cookie has the Xmas from the pumpkin seeds and red from the dried cranberries and it is the perfect gift to make for someone special during this Xmas season.  Claire the someone special that I made them for.  It is quite tedious cutting out the heart shapes for the pumpkin seeds and cranberries were quite hard to cut through. I started at 9pm last night and finished baking them at 12.30am.  I slept at 2am after the cleaning up and the photography session :p and woke up at 6am this morning.......

Therefore ,though the heart shapes were not in perfect forms but they were made out of love :ppp  and let me dedicate this post to Claire...the super super momsie who brought up her three great kids single handedly by the grace of God and she is a close friend and colleague who understands me well :)))  There is nothing I can give to her as Xmas pressie except these delectable homemade  Bailey's flavored cookies -  Claire, these are for you and your three great kiddos :)))  My Xmas pressies to you, peace & joy and God's blessings all the year through :)

Soy Milk Pineapple Jelly

I would make this soy milk jelly occasionally for the kids and Jo would love to have this ready in the fridge all the time , so that she can have them for dessert or when she craves for something sweet. Easy to make and it is such a versatile jelly . You can add in any canned fruits or fresh fruit you want,  or you can have them plain. Either way, it is one mouth-watering jelly. It  has a not too wobbly and not to hard texture but a silky smooth texture that we love :)

And her blog is such a blessing to me and my family.  Her blog - One Perfect Bite is truly a one perfect bite for me :p I saw this cranberry cheesecake a few days ago and I fell in love with it with just one perfect virtual bite :)) I knew I had to bake it to fulfil the craze for her cranberry layered cheesecake , so rich with a layer of fresh cranberry sauce center and top of the cake. One perfect bite of this sinfully rich cheesecake was enough to make me break the rule :p  Thank you so much , Mary for making me break my diet rule.  Perfect for this coming Christmas .  I baked this as a pre Christmas gift for Piggy Cuz who will be spending  her Christmas holiday in Australia .   Thank you Mary for this awesome recipe and Piggy Cuz for the fresh cranberries.( You just make my dream comes true )  Without this fresh cranberries , I will be just drooling virtually from the screen :)   Read on for some saliva inducing cake porn  and recipe :)
