Happy Holidays 2011

Youtube Direct Link

I am a great fan of Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes. Jim Frommeyer and Teague Chrystie realized this absolutely awesome video of the famous snowmen torment scenes from the comic books as a tribute to Bill and here is how they made it: a very Calvin & Hobbes Christmas.

I like to wish everyone Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! Let there be peace, love & happiness for the mankind – at least once in a moment.


Moustache Cookies

Moustache cookiesYeah, now it’s time for some Christmas cookies. Last weekend my girlfriend and I started to bake moustache cookies and some other funny dainties. Just like aliens, pizzas, magic shrooms, a bloody moose and of course a bunch of conventional X-mas cookies. Ho ho ho!

Here’s the recipe for a shortcrust pastry:

  • 500 g (1,1 lbs) flour
  • 125 g (ca. 4,4 oz.) sugar
  • 250 g (ca. ½ lb) butter or margarine
  • 1 (ca. 0,3 oz.) package vanilla sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1-2 dashes of salt
  • Plus a little bit of flour to roll out the pastry,
    and sugar, water & citron juice (or any other kind of fruit juice) for the frosting
    and a lot of fun, of course.

And that’s all. Simple, but delicious :) Happy holidays!
