It has been almost a year now, since I returned home from my American adventure as an Aupair and still I make these many times, usually ending up eating way too many, but it´s a taste that brings back so many good memories and even better, that it is a little joy I can share. During my year in the Chi-Town suburbs I baked and decorated so many cookies and pastries, that one day my hostdad asked why I didn´t add it to my resume. Back in Germany and in my current Spanish home I switched up the recipe quite a few times and this is what I came up with.
Porto up in the north, by the Atlantic Ocean isn´t as crowded with tourists, as Lisbon – except for the river banks – and has a lot to offer as well. To be honest, it might have captured me more than Lisbon, if that is even possible. And if you follow my Instagram or Twitter you know just how much I loved the Portuguese capital.
