Who said cookies should be baked? I know, I know, I love the smell of baked cookies around Christmas too, but I love my raw cookies as well :) And to celebrate Christmas accordingly I decided to make some little cookie Christmas trees! They are incredibly delicious, they melt in your mouth and they are healthy too, how about that? :)
The green Christmas tree is also kind of making amends to Deo for buying grey-white tree for our home last year. I saw it in the store and I fell in love! Imagined it right away with white decorations and little red lights… snowy! But Deo didn’t liked it, he said Christmas trees are supposed to be green. So this year while making the tree, I decided to make him some green trees as well…
The green cookies were inspired by Susan Power’s rawmazing pistachio macaroons, but again I simplified the recipe a little bit and didn’t dehydrate it. Instead I placed my cookies in the fridge for 24 hours to harden, so they ended up solid enough to make a tree and soft enough to melt in your mouth, amazingly delicious!
