I love the geometry of the gingerbread house. This was my first attempt.
I've been making sure to have a kale salad every day - my own home remedy flu prevention.
Another first for me - candied orange peel dipped in chocolate. They came out a bit crunchy due to the turbinado sugar. I would use finer next time - or not cover them in sugar at all. This recipe calls for keeping as much pith on as possible. I prefer it to the recipes that require all the pith be removed.
I made this tart for Christmas day. It was a huge success. Something about cranberry and cheese cake makes for a lovely combination. Because I had a 9.5 inch tart pan with a one inch rim and the recipe calls for a 10 inch tart pan with a two inch rim, I had excess filling which I put in ramekins and baked with the tart - Bonus!!
We had our
second third Santa visitation (my son reminded me of one I'd forgotten)... and more presents!! Will it ever end??
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
