Guess what? It’s Foodie Penpals reveal day! Okay, that was actually yesterday, but I was busy hanging out with some of my favorite ladies. Well, better late than never, right?
This time I got a package from Alice, who lives in Denmark. I’ve never been in that country before, and know very little about it, so I asked her to include some typically Danish things. And boy, did she deliver.
The package contained a very dark rye bread (very intense flavor, reminded me of pumpernickel), a tiny bottle of aquavit, which is still waiting for the right occasion, and a caramel-filled chocolate bar. Needless to say, I loved the chocolate bar. It was gone in a flash.
But the highlight of the package was a batch of homemade cookies. They are called Napoleon’s Hats (Napoleons hatte), and are a traditional butter cookie, filled with marzipan, and formed into a hat-like shape. They were amazing! I love all things marzipan, and was also happy to find that those cookies weren’t overly sweet.
It gets even better, Alice was so nice to include her recipe! They will definitely be added to my Christmas cookie repertoire.
Thank you so much, Alice, for sending me such a beautiful and thoughtful package!
My other Foodie Penpal in October was Anna from Manchester, who has a blog of her own, called Manchester Foodies. Check it out to read about the package I sent to her.
What’s your favorite kind of cookie?
