Give holiday gifts this season that are both thoughtful and tasty.
I make the most decadent chocolate truffles in a variety of flavors and chocolates. I put them in beautiful little boxes with silk ribbons.
Mmmm, I love my Maple Glazed Walnuts — sweet, rich, satisfying and packed with goodness.
I make cookie labels which can hang on a tree, be a place card setting or even a name tag on a gift. Cut cookie dough into label shapes, bake, and when cooled, write the guest's or gift recipient's name on it with icing.
I make a very quick, simple chocolate and pistachio fudge, then pop some in cellophane bags tied with a lovely ribbon, and give them when I go to people's houses. It is best eaten sweet and grainy, straight from the deep freeze. I keep a batch on hand for seasonal nibbling at home myself!
Without a doubt, Spotted Dick! It's a sweet, custardy English pudding with currants and raisins — one bite and you'll think you've gone to heaven in a Dickens' novel.
Chocolate covered pretzel rods dunked in dark, milk and white chocolate and then rolled in green and red sprinkles, or nuts, or coconut.
I am a big cookie baker over the holidays, so sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, Candy Cane Cookies and press cookies are my signature.
