Hot Cross cookie - Easter Calendar 2014

Today it is Easter Monday and it is the last day in the Easter vacation.

I have located this recipe on Hot Cross cookies on the blog What Kate Baked. And it gave me a great opportunity to empty my kitchen cupboards from various leftovers from my Christmas baking. In Denmark we have a saying: "Christmas lasts untill Easter", so I knew, that I had to bake these cookies.
