    I made Nanaimo Bars for Christmas. Its a base in the first 4 photo.. of graham cracker crumbs, walnuts, and coconut.. mixed in melted butter, cocoa powder and white sugar.. then pressed into a pan. The middle is where the fun is.. Its normally a custard flavored filling. I've made chocolate, mint, kahlua,... to name a few.. Today I made my sons favorites. Half Cherry and half coffee. Its simply powdered sugar, butter, milk and whatever flavor you wish. Then Topped with chocolate melted with more butter! If you ever wish to give it a go.. Just message me.


    oh! and some shortbread... but.. not bad for my first attempt.

    Happy holidays!~

    This year besides the classic gingerbread I’ve tried something new for Christmas: cake pops. They are not very good looking but are very tasty and considering that this is my first try I find them acceptable enough to try my luck with them even if they are not torn themed. 
    Here is the full recipe from Jamila: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO1-_do6BiE. She’s very popular in my country for her video recipes and it has an English subtitle.
    I’ve made some minor changes from the original recipe: I’ve added cocoa in the sponge cake and instead of strawberry confiture I’ve used cheese cream, to give the sensation that al the composition is actually chocolate, it sure taste like it. Also I didn’t had white chocolate to melt so I've used brown.
    Also below I’ll put some “in the making” shots.









    Edit: When Duke sent me Cake Frosting today I've decided to submit a new entry, I present you the Fruitcake I have to send to anyone who's in jail.

    • You were sent some Cake Frosting from Duke 08:59:05 30/12/20



    Also photos in the making:



    The recipe is not in english but I will translate here what we need and post the link with the full recipe in romanian language.

    • 350 g crackers
    • 500 g mascarpone
    • 500 ml liquid cream
    • 50 g sugar
    • 250 ml how water
    • 1 ts vanilla essence
    • fruits
    • tiramisu syrup
    Full recipe here: https://adygio.com/tort-tiramisu-cu-fructe-de-padure/


    PS: Just because I don't know anyone in jail I will eat it myself.

    Heart stopping goodness also known as quiche.

    Pastry: for a deep 9½”-pie plate. Recipe will give you pastry for extra depth and edges.
    • 2 cups flour
    • 2/3 cup Crisco shortening
    • 2/3 cup water
    • Good dash of Kosher salt (or other salt)
    1. Add salt to flour. Cut shortening into flour with 2 knives (or a fork).
    2. When in small crumbs, stir in water. (Dough will be moist.)
    3. Roll out on floured surface* and fit into pie plate.** (Need ½-cup extra flour.)
    4. Finish the edges.
    * Plastic kitchen/pastry preparation sheet or surface preferred.
    ** A wine bottle works well if you don’t have a rolling pin.

    Filling:
    • 4+ tablespoons butter
    • 6-8 slices of Canadian bacon – 1/8”-thick. Cut in small pieces. (Use more if desired.)
    • 4 cups (1½ lbs.) shredded, imported, good, aged-100-days Swiss cheese
    • 4 extra-large eggs (or 5 large ones.)
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 1 cup heavy cream (or whipping cream)
    • 1 medium onion – cut in small pieces.
    • Good pinch of nutmeg
    • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt (or any salt)
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper (or regular pepper)
    1. Heat half of butter in large frying pan.
    2. Cut up and cook Canadian bacon over medium heat for 5 minutes or until golden.
    3. Remove and arrange in pie shell. This should cover bottom of shell.
    4. Add remaining butter to pan.
    5. Cook cut-up onions for 5 minutes or until they start to brown. (Add more butter if needed.) Sprinkle
    evenly over bacon in pie shell.
    6. Preheat oven to 450°.
    7. Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded Swiss cheese over bacon and onions. Create a layer of cheese on top of
    bacon and onions.
    8. In mixing bowl, beat eggs. Then add remaining cheese, milk, cream and seasonings.
    9. Mix well and pour over mixture in pie shell. This will fill shell up to the top.
    10. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes (to set shell).
    11. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for 35 minutes or until custard is well set. (Knife in center comes out
    clean.) Watch during the 2 nd baking time to see if top and crust is browning too fast. If so, lightly
    place a piece of foil over it. (This dish may take up to an hour total to cook depending on oven.)

    Serve with sliced apples, grapes, and/or other fruit.

    For leftovers, this dish is also great cold. Or reheat at 350° for 15 minutes.

    Apple pie with Christmas tree cut-outs from the pie crust

    Apple filling:

    1 cup sugar
    3 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 tablespoon butter
    1 egg
    1/2 lemon for juice
    Pinch of salt

    Peel and core apples, and cut apples into eighths
    Add sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt to the apples and mix
    Add juice of lemon to apples to prevent browning
    Save apple filling until finished with bottom half of pie crust

    Pie crust:
    2 cup all-purpose flour
    8 ounces cold butter
    1/2 cup ice water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon sugar

    Preheat oven to 375 degree F
    Mix flour, salt and sugar in a bowl
    Cut cold butter into cubes and then use pastry cutter to blend butter in flour into pea-sized pieces
    Make a well in flour+butter and add cold water bit by bit until all of the dough comes together with a fork
    Use cold hands (rinse your hands in cold water) to form dough and split into two halves
    Sprinkle flour onto work surface, dough and rolling pin, and roll into 10-11" circles (if you have 9" pie plate)
    Place rolled dough in pie plate and use fork to poke holes in bottom of plate and around the sides
    Add apple filling to pie plate, and place knobs of butter on top of the filling (two tablespoons worth)
    Place second rolled out dough on top of the filling, use fingers to pinch and crimp to seal the bottom and top pie crusts together
    Use knife to score pie and allow steam to escape
    Beat egg and apply egg wash to pie
    Bake at 375 degree F for 1 hour
    Take out of oven and let cool, serve with vanilla ice cream

    Behold!  Below is an entirely handmade gingerbread house.  You can tell by the 'fun house floor' effect on the front corner:


    Bonus round! Leftover dough means gingerbread people. One is missing his feet, was a Duke mission.



    And of course, the recipe:

    • ¾ cup butter
    • 7/8 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
    • ½ cup molasses
    • 2 eggs
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour (we found the recipe a little wet with 3 cups, add a bit more if the dough is too thin/sticky)
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
    • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
    • 6 egg whites
    • 4 (16 ounce) packages confectioners' sugar, sifted
    • Directions
    • Step 1
      First cut out in thin cardboard: a side wall, 4 1/2 x 8 inches; an end wall, 4 1/2x5 inches; a triangular gable, 4 1/2x3x3 inches; and a roof rectangle, 4 1/2x9 inches. Tape the rectangular end wall piece to the triangular gable piece: match the long side of the triangle, 4 1/2 inches, to one of the 4 1/2 inch sides of the end wall.



    • Step 2
      In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, and molasses. Gradually beat in 2 eggs. Sift the flour, baking powder, and spices together; stir into creamed mixture. Wrap dough in parchment paper, and refrigerate for 1 hour.



    • Step 3
      Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 6 portions, 2 slightly larger than the others. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the 4 smaller pieces to approximately the size of the side wall and the end wall with gable templates; cut out two of each. Roll out remaining dough, and cut into two rectangular roof pieces. Transfer gingerbread onto greased baking trays.



    • Step 4
      In a preheated 375 degree F (190 degrees C) oven, bake gingerbread for 10 minutes, or until crisp. When removing from the oven, leave the gingerbread on the baking trays for a few minutes to set, then transfer to wire racks. Leave out overnight to harden.



    • Step 5
      In a large bowl, lightly whisk 2 egg whites. Gradually beat in approximately 5 cups confectioners' sugar. The icing should be smooth and stand in firm peaks. Spread or pipe a 9 inch line of icing onto a cake board, and press in one of the side walls so that it sticks firmly and stands upright. If necessary, spread or pipe a little extra icing along either side to help support it. Take an end wall and ice both the side edges. Spread or pipe a line of icing on the board at a right angle to the first wall, and press the end wall into position. Repeat this process with the other two walls until they are all in position. Leave the walls to harden together for at least two hours before putting on the roof. Spread or pipe a thick layer of icing on top of all the walls, and fix the roof pieces in position; the roof should overlap the walls to make the eaves. Pipe or spread a little icing along the crest of the roof to hold the two pieces firmly together. Leave overnight to set firmly.



    • Step 6
      When ready to decorate, make the remaining icing. In a large bowl, lightly whisk 4 egg whites, and mix in remaining confectioners' sugar as before. Use this to make snow on the roof, and to stick various candies for decoration. Finish with a fine dusting of sifted confectioners' sugar.

    Recipes to follow.

    1. Cremora Tart

    One of my favourites and a definite crowd pleaser.



    2. Chokladbollar (Swedish Chocolate balls)

    I had this for the first time when I went to visit my friend in Sweden in 2017. Super yummy, easy to make and perfect with a cup of fika (coffee).



    3. Chocolate Chip Cookies

    My first ever attempt, I was very happy with the results. Perfect amount of chocolate and chewiness. Family also loved it.



    4. White Chocolate Pretzels (Entry just for fun)

    It tastes much better than it looks.
    Level: Expert - attempt at own risk.
    Will I make this again - hell no!!
    This is a huge sticky mess and it took me days to scrape the melted chocolate from my counters (as the chocolate was no longer in liquid form).


    Recipes:

    Chokladbollar

    Chocolate Chip Cookie

    I doubled the recipe for the CCC. I made a few changes. I used 3/4 brown sugar as I was looking for a more chewy cookie.
    I used brown & white chocolate discs as well as chocolate buttons.
    I placed the dough in the fridge prior to baking to ensure that the cookie keeps its form. (recommended to keep in the fridge up to 72 hours prior to baking). Dough also freezes well.

    Cremora Tart:

    Cremora is a powdered coffee creamer in my country. You can substitute it with whatever you have available in your country. It is not the same as powdered milk. It is much richer and creamier.

    Best to make this the day before.

    Ingredients:
    • 500g Cremora / Coffee Creamer
    • 250ml Boiled water
    • 2 tins condensed milk
    • 250ml Lemon juice
    • 410g Crushed pineapple (tin)
    • 1 packed of Tennis biscuits (coconut biscuits) It is for the base of the cake
    • Butter for the base of the cake
    Instructions:

    • Crush the biscuits
    • Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter
    • Place the biscuit mix in a tart dish. Press with a spoon to even it out
    • Dissolve the coffee creamer in boiling water and set aside
    • Stir in the condensed milk and beat
    • Add the lemon juice in gradually
    • Stir the tin of crushed pineapple in (including the liquid)

    So it all begins with vanilla cake mix with added green sprinkles for color and filled with my homemade cream cheese frosting. Which is just powdered sugar, vanilla and almond flavoring, unsalted butter, cream cheese and milk until your desired thickness.
    I added green dye and more green sprinkles to some of the frosting for texture.
    Cut n stacked my cooled cupcakes into a tree shape.
    Covered the tree with green frosting and added lots of different sugar candies to resemble ornaments.


    I took a few cupcakes and frosted them with white frosting and toped them with a marshmallow.


    Then I made icing with just powdered sugar and milk. Separated into a couple different cups and added food coloring and bagged each one with desired colored icing.


    Once I made my snowmen I topped each with a large chocolate candy for the hat and placed them next to my cupcake tree.


    I added a bunch of shredded coconut for snow. And after many attempts at a cupcake star that just kept falling apart I ended up quickly making star sugar cookies and decorated it with white frosting and sprinkled with sugar silver stars for shimmer. And decorated a couple more marshmallows with icing to make presents for under my tree.

    And set everything up together for my finished look. :D


    I was grabbing more coconut for snow and look who showed up to.... Help...

    Very worried I yelled at the baby to get down. So she tried to hide lol


    Was a ton of fun to make with my kiddos even tho the doggo almost ruined it, it was so cute she loved it as much as we did.
    And Really this only gave me so many more ideas that hopefully I can do next year.

    I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years! Happy 2021!!!
