“The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed.”
The Sickness Unto Death, Søren Kierkegaard 

Meet my tea biscuits par excellence. They're slightly boozy and so simple.

  1. the photo is especially gorgeous. i love those beautiful flowers and the cookie jar. the quote is such an important thing to remember, something i have to remember.

    these cookies look like they have such a fabulous texture. what is almond cream?

    1. It's sometimes hard to remember that.
      Almond cream would be vegan almond creamer, I think. It's basically thick almond milk (made the same way but with a lower percentage of water). Hope it helps!

  2. what is the measurement 'cl'? thanks!

    1. That's 'centiliter'. Sorry about the European measures :s
