Boozy New Year “Fortune Cookies” with almonds

New Year Cookies

When I went shopping for Christmas cookie cutters recently, I found those really cute lucky charm shaped ones – and I ended up walking home with them instead of any festive shapes. So, this year it’s New Year cookies instead of Christmas cookies! And since New Year calls for a little booze, I decorated them with Amaretto frosting, so make sure not to hand those to kids.

Sinfully decadent (albeit guilt-free!) carrot cake porridge

carrot cake porridge

Carrot cake for breakfast – who doesn’t dream of this?

Since I am not only a huge carrot cake fan, but also have a soft spot for a bowl of warm porridge in the cold season, I decided to mix the two into a delicious, albeit healthy breakfast dish. I recommend using vanilla soy milk for this, as it is sweet enough so you don’t need to add any more sugar (unless you have a really sweet tooth, in this case you can add a little brown sugar).
