Lavosh - Armenian Cracker Bread

Lavosh is a cracker bread, crisp, slightly sweet and (if I may say so) addictive. It's handy to have on hand and keeps for several weeks.

This recipe comes from my dear Auntie Gloria, she's been making lavosh for many many years, it's definitely a family favorite! It's easy to make and keeps for weeks. COMPLIMENTS! "Yummo! ... Definitely a keeper." ~ LeAnne via Facebook Ever tried a new recipe and liked it so much you made it again right away? Such was the case for my mom’s family’s version of lavosh, an Armenian cracker bread. While there are other recipes by the same name that call for yeast and thus yield a result more-bread-than-cracker, this is a true cracker, thin, crunchy, a tiny bit sweet. And did I mention addictive? That too. Serve lavosh with cheese and fruit or alongside a hearty

Frosty Christmas Trees

My long-time favorite cut-out cookie, with an easy-to-handle dough and lovely gingerbread flavor - with just a touch of chocolate. Plus, how to host a cookie exchange, a favorite tradition at Christmas. COMPLIMENTS! "Totally delicious!" ~ momof3 "This is by far [my] most requested recipe ..." ~ Brooklyn Chick It’s a family tradition: the annual cookie exchange. My mother hosted one for many years. Afterward we would all swarm into the kitchen to sample the goodies. Her friends were good bakers and those cookies didn’t last long! I started hosting my own cookie exchange some years ago. Now my friends count on this annual event to simplify their holiday entertaining and as a source of homemade food gifts for family and neighbors. Think of a cookie exchange as “instant baking”.
