Christmas is coming close and I'm looking forward to spending time with my family. Enjoying wonderful company of my loved ones and delicious food. The tradition of Gingerbreadhouses is starting to become more populair in Holland. Which I'm happy about because I just love baking and decorating them!
Unfortunately, my dear husband doesn't eat ginger! Really, he hates ginger!! The smell of it, the taste of it, the look of it, try presenting a Gingerbreadhouse in the dinnertable then...
To let him enjoy the sweets as well I came up with my own Winter Spice Mix, filled with delicious sents of gorgeous spices!
This Winter Spice Mix is easy to make and I promise you; you will never use a store bought spice mix again. Make sure you use a good quality of spices. It takes a little time but I like to ground the Nutmeg, Anis and Cardamon myself.
Winter Spice Mix
120 gr. Cinnamon
8 gr. Cardamom
15 gr. Nutmeg
20 gr. Anis
Mix all of the spices together, I use a blender (keep the lid on a minute after mixing!) Make a big batch of the mix and store it in a airtight container in your spice cubboard.
You can use the Winter Spice Mix for a lot of delicious treats; Cake, Cupcakes, for all the Dutch bakers...pepernoten. Or share under the Christmas tree as a present!
To complete your gift, use the download for the cute Christmas labels I made for you...Enjoy!
