Weekend Cooking

Time now to think about cooking for Christmas. I’ve made the Christmas Cake and that is maturing nicely (I hope). Whilst out shopping I found this book with more ideas for Christmas Cakes and Cookies:

It’s a flip-over book that is also free-standing, so you can stand it up whilst looking at the recipes as you cook. There are recipes for Shortbread Snowmen, Gingerbread Reindeer, Snowflake Delight, Festive Fudge, Christmas Crunchers and Christmas Toffee Pudding and many more delicious temptations.

I’m very tempted by the Christmas Toffee Pudding which is made with dates:

  1. Yum! I love anything Toffee. I also like the idea that the book stands up so you can see it while you cook instead of trying to balance the pepper mill on the book to hold it open.


  2. I used to have an excellent recipe for a pudding made with dates but it included something which is no longer available and I haven’t found another – perhaps I’ll try this one. I didn’t make a sauce with it, we just ate it warm with vanilla ice cream, and it was delicious.
