Together forever - Bagtopper challenge

Didn't I tell you that the weekend passes way too fast?? LOL
Today I want to show you this bagtopper I did for a bag of delicious amarettinis (those small cookies you eat with your coffee in italy).

Habe ich euch nicht gesagt, dass das Wochenende viel zu schnell vergeht?? haha
Heute will ich euch einen bagtopper zeigen, den ich für ein Säckchen Amarettinis gemacht habe. I used black cardstock from Stampin' up to cut the base of the bagtopper. I did the wavy border with the Spellbinders Label 1 Nestabilities. The heart shape is done with a Fiskars cutting template. I embossed the black one with the Cuttlebug "script" embossing folder.

Ich habe schwarzen Cardstock von Stampin' Up für die Basis meines Bagtopper verwenedt und den geschwungenen Rand mit den Spellbinders Label 1 Nestabilities ausgestanzt. Die Herzen sind mit einem Template von Fiskars geschnitten. Das schwarze habe ich mit dem Cuttlebug embossing folder "script" geprägt.

I used Willow with hot chocolate, because she is the perfect stamp for such a small give away of "coffee cookies" ;)
Do you want to win her? Show me your bagtopper until Jan 17th and you'' get the chance to win Willow with hot chocolate plus a bag of the heart and key charms, I used on my bagtopper.

Ich habe Willow mit heißer Schokolade verwendet, weil sie für so ein kleines Mitbringsel zum Kaffee das ideale Motiv ist :)
Habt ihr Lust sie zu gewinnen? Zeigt mir bis zum 17. Jänner eure Bagtopper und ihr habt die Chance Willow mit heißer Schokolade und ein Säckchen mit Charms zu gewinnen.

This is the back of the bagtopper. The sentiment is printed on the computer (this little bag was an addition to the present for the wedding of my brother in law whom we gave a set of latte macchiato glasses, that's the explanation for the text :). I used the hardware of the Stampin' Up hodgepodge styled silver set.
Thanks for stopping by today and I am looking forward to seeing your bagtopper ideas :)

Hier seht ihr die Rückseite des Bagtoppers. Der text ist am Computer generiert (das Säckchen war ein kleines zusätzliches geschenk zur Hochzeit meines Schwagers, dem wir ein Set Latte Macchiato Gläser geschenkt haben. Soviel zur Erklärung des Textes :). Ich habe die hardware des Stampin' Up hodgepodge styled silver sets verwendet.
Danke euch fürs Reinschaun und ich bin schon auf euere bagtopper Ideen gespannt :)

  • Accessories: eyelet and brads Making Memories, ribbon Raspberry ribbon, charms from stash, SU hodgepodge styled silver hardware, sewing machine, fiskars heart cutting template, Cuttelbug embossing folder "script"

Here is the recipe for the
Amaretti Cookies

2 1/2 cups of almond flour -or- 3 cups of blanched slivered almonds, finely ground up
1 1/4 cup of baker's sugar (superfine sugar)
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of almond extract
Extra sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 150 degrees (300 F) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a food processor mill together the almond flour and sugar. Add the vanilla and almond extract and pulse for a few seconds. Add the eggs, one at a time, and continue to process until the dough is smooth.
Place teaspoons of the dough on the parchment paper and dust with sugar. Bake for 24-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving. They will be slightly chewy at first, but they will be nicely crispy as a day or two goes by. Store in a cool, dry place. (Note: I usually underbake mine since I like them chewy. If that's your preference, bake them for about 20-24 minutes.) Makes about 30 cookies.

I try my best to visit your blogs, to answer your questions right here in the comment section or via email. But you all know how stressful life can be, with two children, household and work. Sometimes, life doesn't go as planned.
