DO-AL(l) Creatives - Challenge #11: The Pre Christmas Session

Challenge #11 for DO-AL(l) Creatives

So exciting getting so close to Christmas now.  Here in New Zealand that means sunny hot days, BBQ's, a Long school holiday for the boys and many trips to the beach.   

Now the challenge this month from Do- Al (l) Creatives blog is:
The Pre Christmas season - Vorweihnachtszeit

I have use one of our sponsers images:

And made a christmas cookie gift box and tag:

The box has a handy transparent cover. 
I made some Choclate chip cookies and here is the recipe:


  • 200 g softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 100 g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100 g dark chocolate, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan assisted or 180°C conventional. Cream butter, brown sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg.
  2. Mix in sifted flour and baking powder with chopped white and dark chocolate.
  3. Roll into balls and place on baking trays lined with baking paper, flatten a little with your hand. Leave room between each one to spread.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and stand for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a cooling rack. When cold, store in an airtight container

Look forward to see your creations for this challenge. 

Happy crafting
